A friend of mine is in the process of planning a wedding and with this stressful event comes the exciting yet slightly daunting task of choosing her wedding dress. Sartorially, she’s the type of lady that chooses stylish clothes but never anything too flamboyant. She dresses practically. Therefore, she wants her wedding dress to make a statement. Well, look no further, today we bring you the latest collection from Justin Alexander, the home of vintage drama and Hollywood glamour.
The 2013 Justin Alexander Collection focuses on vintage inspired wedding gowns for the contemporary bride. Think a heavy use of beading, tulle and lace with a keen eye for the details. For all you fashionistas out there, you will know that all of the above are bang on trend, perfect for the style concious bride.
Take a look at Zk Magazine’s pick of the bunch…
To begin with, take a look at the beautiful gown above. Note the contrasting shapes on the top and the bottom which emphasises the womanly shape and create an hour glass figure. Combined with the flattering sweetheart neck line and a generous sprinkling of silver embellishment, this gown has true Hollywood credentials.
In addition, due to the vintage vibe of these gowns, the ‘look’ as a whole can handle bold make up and various hair styles. The styling is all about having fun, think 1920’s curls and impressive juicy red lips.
Next up is a truly stunning gown with a dramatic feathered bottom and a figure hugging bodice. Again, this gown uses contrasts to flatter the body but also to create the fashionable vintage silhouette.
I’m a huge fan of the simplicity of the white fabrics combined with the ornate cuts and shapes. Definitely a tick in the box for those wishing to make a statement in an impactive yet elegant way.
Second to last, we have a beautiful white, drop waist, strapless gown with an effective lace trimming. The drop waist elongates the torso whilst the voluminous skirt creates the illusion of a petite frame. Also, the minimalism and cleanliness of the lines in this gown allow room for a little humour with the accessories. Why not mix it up a little and have a fresh fuchsia or pillar box red coloured flower in your hair?
Finally, this last dress champions true vintage style and beauty. Combining a high neckline with a sweetheart cut and lace cap sleeves was pure design genius and truly beautiful. And just to put the cherry on the cake, (as if you’re not already sold) the figure hugging skirt is incredibly sexy and flattering on those with a more hour glass shape.
So, what more can I say? If you’re the ‘safe’ kind of girl who chooses well made clothes but never anything different, think twice. Making a statement on your wedding day doesn’t have to mean being over the top. Therefore, this season look to the Justin Alexander 2013 Collection for some serious Hollywood glamour.
