Here are 21 of the most gorgeous gowns that showed up on the runways this week, many of which quite literally made my jaw drop when I saw them. So. Freakin’. Beautiful.

Salma Hayek is successful, beautiful, and currently lives in Paris with her uber rich husband and adorable daughter–things could be worse, right? I love this outfit she wore to the Venice Film Festival–the flared dress and cardigan is a classic combo that would look amazing on many different body types. If you want to try it for yourself, you’re in luck: the copycat dress I found is just $25 and comes in sizes X-Small through XX-Large. Check out shopping details, after the jump! Keep reading »
My mom’s getting married next month, and I don’t even know where to start when it comes to finding a “daughter of the bride” dress. Mom is pretty laid back and hasn’t given me much guidance, fashion-wise, because she’s been so busy with wedding planning. Any tips would be much appreciated! –Proud DOB
Congrats to your mom! So, this is a really interesting question, because while there are plenty of resources out there for mother of the bride outfits (all of which seem to involve beaded boleros), “daughter of the bride” is still mostly uncharted fashion territory. Obviously you’re not alone in your quest: so many women decide to remarry later in life that “daughter of the bride” is now a very common role.
It really depends on the formality of your mom’s wedding and if she wants you to wear the same style as her bridesmaids or coordinate with the wedding colors, but in any case, here are a few general guidelines to keep in mind when choosing a DOB dress… Keep reading »

Over the weekend, I went to an outdoor wedding, which was totally lovely except for the fact that Saturday happened to be the hottest day Oregon’s had in three years. The temperature allowed the guests to bond very quickly by comparing the size of our back sweat stains, but damn, it was an uncomfortable afternoon. I felt so grateful that I’d picked up a cute, breezy dress the week before (that green floral number on the left, in fact!), so I thought it might be helpful to round up some other dress options to get everyone through the rest of the sweltering summer wedding season in style and (relative) comfort.
