Model Lara Stone Changed Into A Short Dress For Her Wedding Reception — Would You?

The ever-gorgeous Lara Stone married comedian David Walliams in London over the weekend. While full-length photos of her custom-made, £30,000 Givenchy gown haven’t yet circulated, shots of her and new hubby David heading to the reception are all over the place, and Lara’s looking fly in a short gold Givenchy dress. Apparently the bride changed from the white wedding dress she wore during the ceremony into a party dress before making merry with guests like Tom Ford and fellow model Lily Donaldson. We love the idea of switching dresses; not only does it preserve your wedding dress from the rigorous obstacle course of wine, food, and hugs that is a wedding reception, but it also leaves you free to dance without tripping all over your train. Would you do this at your wedding? Keep reading »

John Galliano To Dress Katy Perry For Her Big Day?

Katy Perry and her dashing beau, Russell Brand, will become Mr. and Mrs. Brand shortly, but there are a few details to figure out before they walk down the aisle. The bride is still iffy on the location, but there’s one aspect to her big celebration that she’s obviously spent some time thinking about: the wedding dress. As the white gown is quite possibly the most important part for the bride, it’s essential to pick out the most perfect dress. And Katy wants hers to mean something special … Keep reading »

Would You Watch Your Wedding Dress Disappear?

Most women would never dream of throwing away their wedding dress. Brides search for weeks, sometimes even months, to find that perfect white gown, and end up spending hundreds, even thousands of dollars on an item they’ll wear for just one day (then store in their closets for years to come). But now with the push for more environmentally friendly options, the notion of keepsake fashion is changing. Students studying fashion and engineering at Sheffield Hallam University created a wedding dress that’s the ultimate in eco-friendly. After the big day, simply add water and the white gown dissolves, leaving zero trace of its existence. While most would gasp in horror at watching their wedding dress disappear, this is actually an interesting move towards sustainability for our environment and the need to create (and use) green fashions. Since the dress is made of polyvinyl alcohol, it will simply disintegrate into nothingness and space in landfills, not to mention your closet. [Telegraph] Keep reading »

We Knew Wedding Dresses Were Expensive, But Half A Mil?

While this $501,640 dress isn’t the most expensive wedding gown we’ve met, it’s certainly up there. Besides yards and yards of platinum-colored tulle, the dress includes 10 feet of platinum chain, 33 carats of diamonds, 145.84 carats of aquamarine, white keshi pearls, and a white south sea pearl pendant. The dress is a one-of-a-kind collaboration between Tutera, who hosts “My Fair Wedding,” and jewelry designer Erica Courtney. Call us cheap, but we don’t get it. Who needs platinum chain on a piece of clothing they’re going to wear one time? Especially one that’s not even cute. [Luxist] Keep reading »

Style 911: Can I Wear Black To My Own Wedding?

“I’ve been reading The Frisky for a month or so (religiously!) and I thought this would be the place to get my questions answered. (You guys always seem to have the answers.) I’m getting married on Oct 31st of this year and want to know if it’s acceptable to wear a black wedding dress. I would pair it with an ivory shawl (in cashmere) with white pearls as accessories. Is this a fashion no-no? I just want something non-traditional and the bridal stores aren’t doing it for me. I’ve found this vintage black cocktail-type dress and hope that I can wear it! Thanks in advance!” – Melissa

Hey Melissa, what’s up? And welcome to The Frisky! Glad you’re here. I love your question because, personally, when it comes to fashion rules, I like to get all rebellious and say there are none. (Eh, OK, maybe just a few…) After the jump, let’s discuss whether a black dress can work for you on your wedding day or not. Keep reading »

Quote Of The Day: Katie Grand Supports Wedding Dresses That Aren’t White

“I wore an Azzedine Alaïa brown snakeskin dress, which he tortured me for about two months to get into, but at least it’s something I can wear again. I didn’t want some stupid white dress; it seems like such a waste.”

– Kate Grand, editor-in-chief of Love and stylist who has worked with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Calvin Klein Underwear, Dior Homme, Prada, and more [Times Online] Keep reading »

Stunning Toilet Paper Wedding Dress

Thankfully, the final weeks of my engagement have been pleasantly devoid of bachelorette parties with plastic penis products or bridal showers with cheesy games, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a beautiful toilet paper wedding dress when I see one. Don’t think a toilet paper wedding dress can be beautiful? You obviously haven’t seen the winners of Cheap Chic Weddings toilet-paper wedding dress contest. Ann Kagawa Lee of Honolulu took the grand prize for her couture-like creation (compared by some to an Oscar de la Renta gown) made from nothing more than toilet paper, tape, and glue. Her theme was “Gone With the Wind” and Japanese origami, and it shows. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is astounding — even more impressive than the coffee filter prom dress we saw last month. After the jump, check out a close-up of the hat she made to go with the dress. [via The Cut]

It’s My Divorce Party And I Will Wear A Wedding Dress If I Want To

Not to rain on our own bridal bonanza parade, but not all marriages end happily ever after. While there is no “right” way to handle a divorce, Brit Jo Wallace can’t be accused of moping. Rather than skulk around her house after her three-year marriage ended, Jo threw a divorce party. Sure a divorce party isn’t quite as conventional as a Tupperware party, but it was actually the dress code that caught our attention. Rather than don the average “night out on the town to pick me up a hunk of new man” garb for the pub crawl through Brighton, England, Wallace insisted that all the women wear wedding gowns. Not just any wedding dress, oh no, the most hideous dress one could find on eBay. Stomping around Brighton like Bridezilla probably doesn’t come up high on the list of conventional ways to celebrate one’s divorce, but we give Wallace credit for making lemonade out of lemons, and giving dresses that usually only get worn once a second life.
