My fashion friends @ threadbared
told me about some great news today! For you Vera Wang brides out there that are getting married NEXT SPRING.. this is some MUST READ news !
Vera Wang, Spring 2010 Bridal
Vera announces a Vera Wang line for David’s Bridal! Now you can really get your Vera gown at an affordable price! There will be 20 dresses in this new line [can’t wait to see it!]. Her classic fabrics will be used, which means it will not be much of a compromise from her pricier gowns! Good thing for you brides!
NY Mag reports that “Gowns will range from $600 to $1,500, with most coming in under $1,200. Wang’s regular bridal line ranges from about $4,000 to upwards of $25,000.” Read the full article here.
Here are some other Vera dresses I’ve posted on the blog in the past! The Hycinth gown and The Black gown
I love watching the Oscars… for the fashion first and then the awards. =) In the comfort of my home I enjoyed the red carpet coverage fashion show. Here are my 6 favs (my top 3, in no particular order, are the dresses worn by SJP, Beckham, and Mariska Hargitay.) =)
(Did you notice that one of them wore a modified Vera Wang Fall 2009 wedding gown!!!? see below…. )
SJP in Chanel Couture
Victoria Beckham in Victoria Beckham
Sandra Bullock in Marchesa
Demi Moore in Atelier Versace
Maggie Gyllenhaal in Dries Van Noten
And I save this one for last, as it’s an actual bridal gown by Vera Wang… I knew it looked familar, so I went into my bridal dress archives and found it to post for comparison! Mariska had her dress made in black for the Oscars, and she added a sash, which didn’t come with the bridal look. I think that was a GREAT addition; it breaks up the straight plain area and length from below the bust to the thigh.
