Runway Looks

Spring Bridal Market came to an end this Tuesday, which means new looks are coming off the runway to a local boutique near you! Today, we sit down with Cristina Bedwell, General Manager of the Bridal Salon at Saks Jandel, Chevy Chase. Cristina bring us her top 5 looks right from the Big Apple runways…Enjoy!

Vera Wang {110515}

Vera Wang takes us in a new and exciting direction every season! We never know what to expect and its always a thrill to attend her show. This season was all about lightness and texture. She embraced an etheral, bohemian spirit to stunning results. This gown took my breath away with its layered lace textures, soft tulle draping and dramatic back detail.

VW favePeter Langner {Stardust}

Peter Langner loves fabric. You have to see his dresses up close and touch them to fully appreciate the luxurious sensibility that goes into his designs. He is known for his elegant architectural cuts and this gown combines those clean lines with a rich silk mikado with a unique crosshatch texture. Perfect for an urban loft or a modern space like the Newseum.

Naeem Khan {Madrid}
King of the red carpet, Naeem knows how to make a woman look like a screen siren. Each dress is a work of art, and it’s hard to choose just one, but Madrid is so stunning and so signature Naeem–body hugging silhouette, beautiful neckline, and elaborately engineered beading pattern. Your guests and your husband-to-be won’t be able to take their eyes off you!

J.Mendel {Reinette}
JMendel is for the fashion-conscious bride who never imagined themselves in a big ballgown. Sleek and sophisticated, J.Mendel specializes in slim silhouettes and couture details with more of an eveningwear sensibility. This lovely strapless number is made of whisper-light cloque fabric with a delicate peplum and beaded belt detail.

Oscar de la Renta {66E07}
Oscar showed so many beautiful gowns this season (and absolutely adorable flower girl dresses too–thats’ a whole other post!). We have so many favorites! This gown appeals to our love of sparkle with its delicate beading done on top of the most gorgeous metallic handpainted tulle. The stunning sheer neckline is a great alternative to strapless–we love all the new necklines we are seeing this season!
