Vera Wang’s Witchy Woman

Simone Goller
October 17th, 2011 @ 12:57 AM - New York

It was a dark moment for brides as Vera Wang showed some of her best bridal work in a figurative ode to witchcraft to at her new studio in New York on Sunday, Oct. 16.

The bridal gown designer and everything-wedding-authority showed 15 breathtaking looks for Fall 2012 in just two simple tones - black and nude. Inspired by undergarments in this color combination, Wang hit the mark - as few things are sexier to accentuate a woman than nude chiffon, serving as a second skin, and black lace, forming a seductive peek-a-boo veil for a see-through illusion. This was a perfect combination for that alternative, evening event bride who’s not afraid to veer off the beaten path and make her own personalized nuptial look.

Without a white dress in sight, Wang managed to exude the elegance and antiquity of the Victorian gothic while infusing each gown with a sense of modernism and mystery. Halter neck lines, and T-strapped backs were novel contours that functioned as a sensuous deviation from the standard strapless look. Peplum bustiers and sheared flange skirts gave way to a beautiful flowing shape that cascaded downward with a finishing light and airy touch.

Wang once again secured her relevance in the bridal industry, not that anyone would question her skills - but don’t be surprised to see any of these spell-casting gowns, most notably the nude strapless French tulle ballgown with hand-pieced Chantilly lace applique, sooner on the red carpet than down the aisle.
