Last Sunday, Vera Wang unveiled (pun intended) her Spring Summer 2012 collection at New York Bridal Fashion Week and left everyone buzzing about her black wedding gowns.
Personally, I looove these gowns! The masses of black netting and the models’ pallid faces and mussed up hair are gorgeous, and especially perfect for anyone getting married in the month of Halloween. It’s also nice to see Wang back in the headlines doing what she does best – making extraordinary bridal gowns – rather than for making yet another Kardashian wedding dress.
Apparently white has only been popular for wedding dresses since Queen Victoria chose the colour for her wedding in 1840. Prior to that reds and blues were common, as were darker colours, which were more practical (which makes sense – I can’t even eat in a white t-shirt without spilling something on it, let alone a whole dress).
