My Advice

Vera WangOn your wedding day, stay true to yourself. It may sound cliché, but brides look most radiant when they look natural. Use makeup to enhance your features, not to create a mask.

I recommend focusing on a skin-toned foundation to create an evenness and powder that reduces shine for photographs. Day or night, avoid brightly colored eye shadows or too elaborate an eye in general.

Hair, also, should not disguise you or succumb to current trends. An amazing haircut and great blow dry will always surpass any contrived hairstyle. Hair accessories can be beautiful if chosen carefully - they should never overpower you or your gown. -XO, Vera

Dress Diary: Katarina

Vera Wang Spring 2013 Bridal

A natural waist, strapless corset bodice is appliqued with bits of Chantilly lace – they almost appear to float over the bust cups and the boning, to subtly mask them. It’s a sleek, nipped-in contrast to the gorgeous fullness of the ballgown’s skirt, which is made up of...READ MORE
