Dress Designers (from left to right): Sophia Tolli and Theia
In case you missed all the red carpet action at the 66th Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday night, our Fashion Editor sure didn’t! She was at home (obviously) watching TV stars alike say each and every fashion designer they were wearing. From Claire Danes’ red illusion lace cut-outs to Hayden Panettiere’s sequins and Kerry Washington’s thigh-high slit to Allison William’s big ol’ ball gown, see how you can steal their looks for your walk down the aisle.
Now that you’ve seen some of the best looks on the runway, here’s a look at the overall trends. There were some obvious ones like lace and tulle dresses, and then some more subtle detailing such as peplums and modesty. Here’s Part I of WeddingWire’s Bridal Market Trend Report:
Brides looking for that walking on a cloud feeling will have no shortage of wedding dresses made partly or completely of tulle. From full ball gown skirts to pleated bodices, designers showed wedding dresses in a variety of silhouettes with this soft and delicate fabric.
Wedding Dress by Badgley Mischka
Once I figured out what type of wedding gowns look awful on me, it wasn’t too long until I learned what flatter my body type.
It turned out that sweetheart necklines worked best for my decolletage– mustn’t hide my light under a bushel. Gowns that nipped in at the waist and were somewhat hip-hugging– to my surprise — also worked well. As a girl with hips, I was always taught to go for full and A-line skirts to disguise my curves, but it turns out that a more fitted silhouette looks better. So I ruled out ballgowns and the poofier of the A-lines.
