On Elegant Brides


As the anticipation surrounding the royal wedding gets to the fever pitch stage – What will she wear?! Who will attend!? – one thing is a pretty safe bet: the bride will not go sleeveless. For years, the trend has been for brides to wear strapless gowns, and while the look is pretty on some, I tend to not love it. It can just look so…prom. Both Nicole Ritchie and Ivanka Trump opted for sleeved gowns recently, but it will be Kate Middleton who turns this trend around.

I found the bride above in the piles of $1 vintage photographs at Miss Pixie’s on 14th Street, one of my favorite places to pop into on weekends. Look at her beautifully made dress and gloves, and how the spray of her bouquet makes her waist look even tinier than it is. This dress would look just as right – just as special and grown-up – on a modern bride. Elegance never goes out of style!
