This week’s collection of dresses features a unique backside. For the majority of the ceremony, the guests only see the back of the bride. AND during the reception, the guests see the bride talking to other guests. What do you see? Her backside. Why not make it spectacular? The new lines are coming out and the designers are bringin’ the sexy back.
1) Bare No Reservations: You’ll have no reservations about this uber feminine gown. White waffle silk habotai, tank style, with soft ruffles spilling down your shoulder and back. (Carolina Herrera)
2) Madam Mermaid: The mermaid silhouette and elegant chiffon halter neckline elongates the body. The silk faille surrounds the body like a pretty package and the chiffon cascades down the back and meets the ribbon at the waist. Pillows of silk are gathered just above the knee and flows to the ground creating a chapel train. (Junko Yoshioka)
3) Halter Skelter: A halter is one of the best ways to show off a toned back. The barely-there straps are not the focus, but rather the focus is on the beautiful back. A foral detail is ruched bodice that wraps all the way around the body gives umph to area. While the chapel train will leave your guests’ eyes wanting more. (Amsale)
4) La Bella Donna: This silk taffeta ballgown will turn make people take a double take. The ruffled neck line is dramatic enough for any queen. The natural waist cinches where the waist is the smallest. Don’t worry about forgetting your lipstick, the secret pockets are there for you. (Amsale)
5) Sheer Beauty: This organza and tulle dress has an A-line silhouette that gently falls to the ground. The organza straps create a V-neckline that gracefully frames the back. A ruched waist with gathered detail seal the deal on this beautiful gown. (Christos)
6) Lovely Lace: The scallop bateau neckline sets the eyes to expect a modest back. However, the lace opens up to a strikingly open back. Alencon lace lies over the champagne charmeuse in this not-your-grandmother’s lacy modified A-line gown. (Jim Hjelm)
7) Cross my heart: Known for her sexy and sometimes over the top wedding designs, this option is pretty tame compared to others. A full organza handkerchief skirt floats from a natural waste and cover a ruffled petticoat. Lace details and embroidery make this v-neckline dress a very confident choice, as the straps cross in the low open back and tuck in at the waist. (Amy Michelson).
Note: Some of the dresses are not on the designers’ websites, but rather shown only during runway. If you are interested in a particular dress, please contact the designer to see if will be part of an upcoming collection.
