Season to season, the ball gown continues to be a popular choice amongst brides. This season, ball gowns are getting a light and airy makeover with cloud-like tulle and feather skirts resulting in a lighter feeling without compromising on the traditional style.
No matter what the season, it’s important that your dress reflects your style and personality and makes you feel beautiful on your big day.
Congratulations and Happy Dress Hunting!
Amy Oselkin, Celebrity Style Expert
So far, 2011 has been chock-full of celebrity engagements. Leading up to the big day means anticipation of what celebrity brides-to-be will wear is high. Here are my inside scoop predications on what fashionistas like Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Minnillo and Jessica Simpson will don as they walk down the aisle.
Kim Kardashian: Sexy Style
Surprisingly Kim Kardashian admits she is clueless on what style gown she wants to wear when she weds basketball player Kris Humphries. “I keep changing my mind,” she told reporters. Not to worry Kim! I am going to make your bridal dress shopping experience a little easier.
First, in order to compete with her 20.5-carat engagement ring — worth 2 million dollars—Kim’s gown needs to be gloriously glamorous. Additionally, Kim will likely want to flaunt her famous derriere so she’ll need a body conscious number. Plus, at just 5’2” the fashionista should look for something that elongates her frame — especially since her fiancé is 6’9”.
So I’ve narrowed it down to this satin fit and flare dress because it seamlessly fits all of the criteria. The curve-hugging silhouette will highlight Kim’s hourglass shape. The sweetheart neckline is feminine and flattering. And finally the bow detailing and slightly bejeweled bodice offers the right dose of razzle-dazzle fit for Kim’s big day. For a little extra pizazz, I suggest adding a fabulous pair of earrings like these gorgeous chandeliers.
Vanessa Minnillo: Fairytale Fashion
Vanessa Minnillo has waited a long time for her dream wedding to Nick Lachey. In fact the couple have been dating on and off again since 2006 so their nuptials are sure to be spectacular. Over Memorial Day the couple celebrated their upcoming union with a wedding shower at the posh London Hotel in Los Angeles. For the festivities, Vanessa basically “test drove” a wedding dress – she wore a white strapless knee length Monique Lhuillier lace dress. Judging from this pick, Vanessa’s gown is sure to be classic, glamorous and romantic.
This strapless tulle fit-and-flare gown featuring hand-detailed lace appliques and paired with a coordinating lace jacket perfectly suits Vanessa’s elegant yet youthful taste. To complete the princess-like feel, pair this with a crystal embellished headband.
Jessica Simpson: A Sassy Spin
As Jessica prepares to walk down the aisle with former NFL player, Eric Johnson, she knows for sure that she isn’t looking for anything too regal. “I absolutely adore Kate’s dress,” said Jessica, 30. “I thought she looked absolutely beautiful. There’s no bride that can top a Royal Wedding. I’m not going to be wearing the same kind of thing, but it will be beautiful in its own right.”
We know Jessica has already broken with tradition with her ruby engagement ring so it’s fair to say she might opt for something unexpected for her wedding gown as well. This silvery gray chiffon cocktail dress still has a bridal feel, but the unique shade gives it a little edge. Plus, it’s figure flattering. All Jess needs is a great pair of heels like these metallic rhinestone platforms and she’ll be all set.
