White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

White Gowns Apparently Just For Basic B*tches Now: 13 Nontraditional Wedding Dresses From The Spring 2014 Bridal Shows

The Spring 2014 bridal collections have shown and the big surprise is… more nontraditional wedding dresses. We see this pretty regularly (dove gray, pale pink, mint green and the like), but it’s still always a surprise how polarizing it is. We’re of the opinion that no woman should feel required to wear a long white dress (or, uh, get married, for that matter) but the sight of a nonwhite gown sends others into irrational frenzy.

So, for those of you interested in/horrified by nonwhite gowns or other variously nontraditional wedding dresses, here are the latest from the Spring runways, featuring Vera Wang, Marchesa, Monique Lhuillier and more. More »

Karl Lagerfeld Weighs In On France’s Gay Marriage Debate By Sending Pair Of Brides Down Paris Runway

Karl Lagerfeld Weighs In On France's Gay Marriage Debate By Sending Pair Of Brides Down Paris Runway

Karl Lagerfeld is a nutty old coot whose two favorite past times are calling people fat and readying his titanium space cave for the proletarian revolution. But once in a while he does something endearing, like growing obsessed with a white fluffy kitten or supporting gay marriage in a public way, and I am charmed. Maybe he just likes things that are white? More »

Gallery: Kristen Stewart's Wedding Dress, Manolo Blahniks From Breaking Dawn

The sleeved wedding dress worn by Kristen Stewart in the latest Twilight installment has been the subject of heated debate around here: some of you would wear it, most of you think it’s pretty ugly. Granted, last time we discussed the gown, we were focused specifically on the affordable copy manufactured by Alfred Angelo, not the Carolina Herrera original. Here’s the real thing–with its meticulous lace details and delicate sheer back. You may notice how it’s considerably less… satin-y than the copy. Word is Herrera will make her own design available, presumably at a much, much higher price than Angelo’s. Here’s a bunch of close-ups of the dress, including her equally swirly Manolo Blahniks.

Would You Wear: Vera Wang’s Black Wedding Gowns

Would You Wear: Vera Wang's Black Wedding Gowns

It’s Bridal time (FUCK YEAH MARRIAGE)! All the heavy hitters–Carolina Herrera, Monique Lhuillier, Oscar de la Renta–are showing wedding collections for Fall 2012. Interestingly, the heaviest hitter of them all, Vera Wang, was feeling pretty moody: black wedding gown levels of moody. For what it’s worth, Wang was wading into darker waters last season (she showed lots of dove gray) but still kept it pretty romantic and delicate. This collection, however, is downright goth. I don’t mean to be a completely ridiculous parody of my high school goth self but… I kind of like them? More »
