From the Chanel 2008 Fall Couture Collection
Note to Readers:
With my last post about bridal beauty, my interest in wedding dresses was peaked. I thought I would look at some of the runway stills and see if anyone had bridal looks, and a few designers closed their shows with wedding dresses. Usually the last look of a fashion show is the most memorable and most dramatic, but this one is a little over the top. I appreciate dramatic looks as much as the next girl, and love the avant garde, but this is just too much. I can't even tell if the dress is pretty, I am too overwhelmed by tulle!
Note to Karl Lagerfeld:
Karl, you have brought us some of the most recognizable and chic designs of the century. Usually, when your name is said by me it is with a certain reverence, almost like I am not worthy of uttering it. When I started researching Chanel bridal looks, the picture above is what I found. I actually loved most of your 2008 Fall Couture Collection, but this piece was the one I felt inspired to write about. Maybe I just don't get it, but I think you would be hard pressed to find a bride that would wear this on her big day.
