Well, I’m back to round out the awards season with a wrap up from the movies’ (and fashion’s!) biggest night: The Academy Awards. There were some clear trends throughout the evening – a lot of white gowns, red gowns, one shouldered frocks, long sleeved stunners, peplum skirts and metallic accents to name a few! I’ve pulled together a few of my absolute favorite gowns from the night and have set them side by side with some of our own beauties from The White Gown. What were your favorites of the evening?
My favorite trend of the evening was the peplum skirt. Michelle Williams wore an amazing Louis Vuitton coral gown and Tina Fey looked stunning in a midnight blue Carolina Herrera gown. I chose to pair the peplum styles with an Enzoani stunner, and while it may not technically be a peplum, the natural waisted bodice and flared skirt of this Enzoani gown has a similar shape overall. Love!!
Next up is the always-beautiful Angelina Jolie – she wore an amazing Atelier Versace gown. When I saw this gown, I immediately thought of our layered organza David Fielden gown – it features similar asymmetrical draping and a flattering natural waistline. In short, I’m obsessed.
I noticed a lot of sleeved options – both cap sleeves and long sleeves – on the red carpet, which I love. Check out the amazing silhouettes on JLo (in Zuhair Murad), Meryl Streep (in Lanvin) and Octavia Spencer (in Tadashi Shoji).
I can’t help but think of our amazing Lusan Mandongus gown that features a similar cinched waist and gentle cap sleeve.
Emma Stone was another favorite of mine Sunday evening in Giambattista Valli. I love this high neckline on her – even if it was similar to Nicole Kidman a few years back! The gown is also reminiscent of our Alyne Bridal gown, Fiona that features a high neckline and natural waist.
I was pleasantly surprised to see Natalie Portman in vintage Christian Dior (another red gown!!). The silhouette is classic and lovely – just like our Alyne Bridal gown, Audrey.
Milla Jovovich’s Ellie Saab gown was yet another favorite of mine (sorry - I had a lot of favorites!). The beautiful one-shoulder detail along with the beaded draping was nothing but stunning. While the fabrics are different, the draping and shoulder detail reminded me of our new Soft by Rosa Clara gowns. Gorgeous!
A structured bodice and textured skirt goes a long way. Take a look at Jessica Chastain (in Alexander McQueen) and Kristen Wiig (in J Mendel), for example. And then take a look at our gorgeous Maria Karin gown that combines the best of both!
Another jaw-dropping moment was Stacy Keibler’s amazing Marchesa, metallic gown! Between the gorgeous color and rosette draping, I was immediately reminded of one of our favorite David Fielden gowns at the salon.
And finally, I just had to include Gwyneth Paltrow’s Tom Ford dress and cape. I didn’t pair this with a gown in the store simply because every bride can achieve this look with a cathedral veil! A statement indeed – what’s not to love about this look?
What was your favorite look of the night? Will you wear an Academy Awards-inspired gown? We’d love to hear!

We were delighted to receive our latest David Fielden gown just about a week ago. So excited, in fact, that we just had to put it in the window! And it’s already getting all sorts of response from our friends in DUMBO.
The slim, sleek lines of David Fielden’s 4626 gown has a sexy, vintage appeal. Shown below in ivory, our store’s version is in the delicious cameo color.

To continue our new inventory inspiration series, this week we’re featuring our David Fielden dress, style number 4611. The whimsical dress is perfect for all you brides searching for your Spring 2012 dresses. Our dress, unlike the version pictured below, has a wonderful colored bodice – the beading and crochet details are to die for! You don’t want to miss out on this one – make an appointment today to try on this beauty.
We love the idea of adding a simple, short veil, like our Sara Gabriel Piper veil, to this David Fielden gown. Something that grazes your shoulders won’t distract from the detailed bodice is key.
As we mentioned, this dress would suit a beautiful garden venue quite perfectly. We’re borrowing some inspiration from this incredible garden party shoot featured on Style Me Pretty. Where would you wear this amazing gown?

Our next installment of our new inventory inspiration series features our beautiful David Fielden dress, style 7238. We can’t get enough of the delicate petals throughout the tulle skirt and the asymmetrical straps and delicate sweetheart neckline.
The gown already has quite a bit to look at, so we thought that a simple hair piece like this Sara Gabriel Sakura Comb would play off the petal details quite well.
We can’t help but picture this dress in a beautifully rustic and woodsy scene on a cool, early autumn afternoon. Below are some inspirational shots we found that we think would compliment that dress well.
If you’re as in love with this David Fielden gown as we are, come by the store! The beautiful dress is currently featured in our window and we’d love for you to make an appointment to try it on!
