New Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses by Alfred Angelo


We're in love with the new line of Disney Fairy Tale Wedding Dresses by Alfred Angelo. We love that each gown is inspired and designed for each different Disney princess. Above the first gown is inspired by Snow White, the second for Cinderella and the third for Belle from Beauty and the Beast



The first is for Ariel -- which you could probably tell because of the mermaid shape, the second inspired by Jasmine and the third for Aurora from Sleeping Beauty.


Do you love this collection as much as us? Do you think the dresses represent the personalities and styles of the Disney Princesses? (Images via Allan Zepeda)

Details Behind Mrs. McConaughey’s Gorgeous Bridal Gown!

Matthew-mcconaughey-300x400[1]More details have emerged on the designer of the bride's beautiful lace gown.  The designer was Brazilian Ducarmo Castelo Branco, a 78 year-old family friend that created Camila Alves gown for the couple's at-home wedding in Austin, Texas.


According to, Camila has known the designer personally since she was young.  "I guess you can say she has been planning this design for over 20 years," says Camila.


We are obsessed with the detailed long lace sleeves -- such a perfect fit for the couple's traditional Catholic Ceremony.  Not to mention right on trend for 2012 bridal fashion.

Fashion Trend at the Oscars: Michelle Williams and Tina Fey in Peplum



Peplum gowns (slim dresses with a ruffle overskirt over the waist) were all the rage on the fashion runways and now the red carpets at the Oscars!  Tina Fey looked utterly elegant in her custom made Carolina Herrera gown and Michelle Williams (nominee for Best Actress for "My Week with Marilyn" wowed in her red Louis Vuitton stunner (cinched nicely at the waist with a pretty bow brooch).  Love the peplum trend Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang both had similiar styles come down their runways this season.

New York Fashion Week Roundup!

New York's Fall 2012 Fashion Week has just wrapped up! And while there were tons of beautiful designs coming down the runway, we looked for bridal-esque gowns from some of our favorite wedding dress designers. Check out our fave gorgeous dresses below (think you'll be seeing a version of these at bridal fashion week?)

Frothy white creations from Marchesa practically already looked liked wedding dresses.


Gorgeous gowns from Oscar de la Renta got us thinking these would be perfect in white (or leave them in color for a daring bridal look!)


These dresses from Lela Rose were classically chic and streamlined (we especially think that middle gown would be perfect in cream).


We already love the modern, sleek wedding dresses that Theia makes, and these ready-to-wear gowns are no different. The shimmery dress on the far right would be perfect for the fashionista bride as a "wow" reception dress.


OK, we'll admit, not all of the gowns below are very "bridal," but we just couldn't resist posting a few beauties from our other favorite designers. Which collection do you like best? Below: Ralph Lauren.

Carolina Herrera wows us in painted silks.


Jason Wu, always elegant.

Reem Acra Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show

Reem Acra showed her ready-to-wear collection today at Lincoln Center to a house filled with fashion insiders and celebrities—including supermodel Coco Rocha, The Help’s Ahna O'Reilly and actress Jenna Tatum.




Reem Acra, never shying away from dramatic gowns, wowed the crowd with her daring (and strategically placed) cutouts as well as sparkling gowns with sexy silhouettes. We are hoping these glamorous yet polished looks are a preview of what’s to come during bridal fashion week in April!

Want your Reem Acra fix now? Check out her collection from this season.

Adele, Fergie, Katy Perry & More Hit the Red Carpet at the 2012 Grammys

The Grammys red carpet really wowed this year, with several gorgeous (and perhaps surprisingly, not too many outlandish) ensembles. Check out the matches we put together for these gorgeous ladies: Adele, Fergie, Kelly Rowland and Katy Perry.

Below: Adele in Giorgio Armani; wedding dresses by Reem Acra and Manuel Mota for Pronovias.


Below: Kelly Rowland in Alberta Ferretti; wedding dresses by Angel Sanchez and BHLDN.


Below: Katy Perry in Elie Saab. It was pretty tough to find a similar dress, so we pulled two dresses from Elie Saab's haute couture spring/summer 2012 collection instead, along with a new dress from Pronovias.


Below: Fergie in Jean Paul Gaultier; wedding dresses (well, let's face it, it's tough to find an all-lace see-through wedding dress. We'll settle for these instead...) Marchesa (for the bold shoulder), Beth Elis and Reem Acra.


Below: Carrie Underwood wears Gomez-Gracia; wedding dresses by Monique Lhuillier and Pronovias.

Bright Whites from the Grammys Red Carpet


While it is a somber day in the music world, and there is a solemn tone to the Grammys this year, the stars are still shining on the red carpet. Here's our first round-up of the white, cream and sparkly dresses from the red carpet.

From left above: Alison Krauss represents our inner boho chic bride, Carly Steel shines in silver sparkles, Kelly Osbourne dazzles in a champagne one-shoulder dress by Tony Ward, Kathy Griffin looks sexy in a creamy yellow; and Paris Hilton is sophisticated sexy in Basil Soda.

Monique Lhuillier Ready-to-Wear Fashion Show


Monique Lhuillier, bridal designer extraordinaire, showed her latest ready-to-wear collection at Lincoln Center last night. Monique is known for dressing celebrities down the aisle and on the red carpets, so we weren’t surprised to see some A-listers at her show.

We spotted model and future Mrs. Matthew McConaughey, Camilla Alves, sitting front row (probably scoping out what’s to come from Monique Lhuillier’s bridal collection) next to The Vampire Diaries actress Nina Dobrev (decked out in a sexy blue Monique Lhuillier dress).


We expect to see some signature details from this collection make an appearance in her upcoming bridal fashion show in April. Some of our favorites include sheer cutouts, high slits, sexy silhouettes, cap sleeves and broad belts.

Can’t wait until April’s bridal fashion week? Check out her pretty gowns from this season here!

Vera Wang White Celebrates One Year Anniversary


This month, White by Vera Wang is celebrating its first anniversary! We can't believe how quickly the year has gone by. The line, which sells at David's Bridal and retails for way less than a typical Vera gown, began with 12 inaugural looks that ranged from traditional styles to modern silhouettes. It got some pretty big attention too when Vera released two gowns that were inspired by the ones worn by Kim Kardashian during her wedding.

Later on, White by Vera also released some bridesmaid dresses (ones that were actually just featured on Gossip Girl during Blair's dramatic royal wedding.

To celebrate the one-year anniversary, a number of the gowns are currently on sale (just in case you're searching). Which ones do you like best?
