The Corpse Bride: Vera Wang Spring Summer 2012 Bridal Collection

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.

A dark twist on the classic white meringue.

I love how this one is all ripped and Miss Haversham-ish until it hits the knees and then boom with the netting.

The neckline on this dress gives it a hint of Maleficant. Wicked.

With the visible boning in the corset and the contrast of nude and black this dress looks almost as though it’s been ripped open.

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).

Dita von Teese chose a gorgeous purple Vivienne Westwood creation for her 2005 wedding to Marilyn Manson.

The Corpse Bride: Vera’s inspiration?
