For many women, sensuality is expressed through the choice of a neckline, but how much is too much? Anything too obvious is seldom appropriate. The neckline of a wedding dress frames the bride’s face and shoulders, and is critical to emphasizing (or deemphasizing) her bosom.
For a small bosom, a deep V-neck is always flattering and a carved racer-front or narrow halter creates a sleek, sexy look. For a full bosom, choose a neckline that can hold extra stays or an additional layer of stretch lining for support. I recommend a crumb-catcher neckline as it flatters all sizes.
In all cases, err on the side of discretion – even high necklines can be provocative if combined with an element of surprise, such as a low back. - XO, Vera
A Fairy-Tale Wedding
Javier and Irma’s love story was like something out of a storybook, thus a fairy-tale wedding could not have been a more appropriate theme. The ceremony looked as if it could have taken place in an enchanted forest; each side of the aisle boasted huge planters, and at the end of it, stood trees studded with crystals and flowers, under which the bride and groom exchanged vows.

Dress Diary: Kirsten
This is a gown that takes some of the techniques and modernist aesthetic vocabulary I've become most personally attached to, and really creates something so wonderful and unexpected.
In Kirsten, you have a bodice fashioned from layer after layer of razor-cut bias tulle and organza, cut and arranged in what we call a flange technique, which creates all of these gorgeous flourishes throughout every angle of the dress. I've used this flange technique in previous collections, and absolutely love it: the way it turns a layer of fabric into almost a painter's brushstroke. There are so many layers, and they're inter-related in so many minute patterns throughout the space of the bodice, that they take on this exciting new texture, like a new fabric in itself. You can see how the “brushstrokes”...READ MORE
