02 Aug Wedding Dress: Old Hollywood into Modern Chic
Old Hollywood glamour is currently a hot trend. Eva Mendes, Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz and Heidi Klum have all been spotted on the red carpet working this vintage look. You can embrace this trend by selecting a gown from New York Bride & Groom that has a classic (and flattering) cut, style and color.
Dresses with a sweetheart neckline are one way you can look incorporate this look. Talented designer Maggie Sottero has over 90 dresses alone that feature this neckline! The Carissa, Deidre and Mandy dresses would all fit nicely with an Old Hollywood theme.
Another great neckline that brings the drama and glamour of the Golden Age of the Silver Screen is the embellished halter. Soterro’s Alexa gown is a perfect match for a modern take on the look. An added bonus of the dress is it features elegant draping — a must on any Hollywood starlet.
Portrait necklines also call the Dream Factory. Maggie Soterro’s Symphony wedding gown delivers a romantic, sweet and classic look. It has a stunning illusion lace jacket in which scalloped lace lies over the shoulders, modestly exposing them. This is a dress that has every last detail on it planned out and is very reminiscent of the gowns vintage Hollywood movies star would wear.
As a finishing touch, complement your dress of choice with a swipe of creamy red lipstick. You can arrange your hair in loose waves or in a carefree chignon. Add strappy embellished heels and a beautiful piece of statement jewelry like chandelier earrings or an opera length necklace. Black or white cat eye sunglasses can also be worn if spending time outdoors for a cocktail hour. And, nothing looks more chic and glamorous than a fur shrug or a faux mink coat or collar for winter weddings.
Remember: You’re a star on your special day. Look like one!
