Hollywood Brides Unveiled
Recently I had the distinct pleasure of seeing an incredible wedding gown exhibit at the Somerset Mall which is located here in our area. The exhibit show cased actual bridal fashions worn in some of the most memorable of Hollywood movies. The collection is owned by a company in London which was founded in 1965 by Oscar winning designer John Bright. This company specializes in original period clothing. Their Bridal Fashion Event is now internationally acclaimed. In addition to the exhibit, Somerset held a runway bridal fashion show and also show cased several examples of wedding inspired tablescapes.
The dresses were all absolutely beautiful! They were just dazzling! On the screen these types of dresses always look lovely but it's very different to be able to see them up close and personal. Most of the dresses are a soft creamy color instead of the white we are more used to seeing. From the beautiful fabrics, to the intricate bead work, the antique lace, the detailed and rich embroidery work, and the tiny delicate flowers made out of the same material as the dress, each and everyone of them was just incredibly stunning. I have never seen anything quite like it.
I have always wondered why more models haven't become actresses and why more actresses haven't become models. Well, now I know. Most of these dresses were made for very petite women with ultra small waist lines.
I could go on and on about these dresses but with out further ado I will give you a sneak peek at the collection. Can you guess which movies these dresses are from? You may click the pictures to enlarge if you like. I think if you do, you will get a much better view of the dresses and also will be able to see which movies each dress is from.
I hope you enjoyed getting a peek
at this marvelous collection.
If the exhibit should happen to come
to your area I do hope you will take
the time to go see it. The dresses
were all just amazingly beautiful!
The day before I saw the collection a women apparently jumped over one of the red side rails and snatched up one of the dresses. She tossed it to a man waiting in the sidelines and then they both ran out of the mall. The dress to date has still not been recovered.
I hope all of you have a happy and beautiful day ♥
With warmest regards, Carol
