“Pink as sensual, pink as seductive, pink as dreamy, pink as sophisticated, pink as strong, pink as cool,” were the words of Vera Wang on her latest bridal collection.
As you may have guessed from the quote, the coveted fashion designer, whose gowns have been worn down the aisle by well-known public figures like Chelsea Clinton and Victoria Beckham, is defying tradition yet again with her Fall 2014 collection unveiled just last week.
Ditching the traditional color of white, models strutted down the runway in vibrant hues of petal, rose, coral and peony. Further pushing boundaries were large bow and flower details to match the gowns in both voluminous and slim silhouettes. According to British’s Daily Mail, the 64-year-old American designer was inspired by classic films like ‘Funny Face’ where an entire scene was dedicated to “thinking pink” for summer dresses as well as Marilyn Monroe’s Schiaparelli pink gown in ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’.
We think this is yet another bold statement to make by Vera Wang, who has long been known for her trail-blazing designs. Who knew that pink could be such a lovely shade for bridal gowns and like Wang said, pink certainly flatters all skin types!
This writer at W&T certainly hopes this opens up to more wedding gowns of various colors from here on. What do you think?
