Wedding Wednesday: A Peek Into Spring Couture

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

Caution: This post is NOT for the faint of heart. The decadent gowns shown here, from some of the most fabulous Spring 2013 Couture shows, encompass both dramatic and delicious fashion and somehow still remain wearable and modest. 

I personally am blown away by the 'eye-candiness' of these dresses and from my observations, the features most on trend for this season's couture include ruffles, lace, gold and feathers....SWOON!  I am happy to share some of my favorites with you!

 Of course it's Valentino that always seems to get it when it comes to the creation of modest design that epitomizes both classiness and a dramatic flair:
 Valentino's talent in design seems to run way beyond the scope of just fashion, as seen below in these Architectural Digest photos of his glam French Chateau:

And, finally, here's to making a dramatic exit...why choose just metallics or feathers when you can heave both!

Which collection is your favorite? What gown would you wear?

Have a beautiful day!

    if i had to choose a designer i had to choose for the rest of my life - he would be one of them.
