For anyone whose style icons include the screen sirens of Hollywood’s golden age (think Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall etc) channeling an eternally chic and timeless sensibility, demure lace silhouettes offer a sleek take on such classic elegance.
Feminine and ladylike, yet thoroughly modern (without the fullness of a traditional princess cut), these streamlined gowns balance long sleeves and higher necklines with a softly spoken sensuality…think illusion bodices or deeply plunging backs. An intriguing tension at play between modesty and daring, perfect for the duality within us all.
Pair with hollywood waves for a mood of polished old world glamour, or a sleek bun with dramatic earringsfor a more contemporary juxtaposition. Avoid a traditional bouquet (with a traditional gown it may make for dated styling) choosing instead a thoroughly unexpected arrangement (think instead single specimens or a wildly cascading cluster).
