Finding the Perfect Wedding Dress
If you're into vintage Hollywood glamour, who better than star dressers Badgley Mischka for your big day? Beth checked out their bridal collection for spring 2007 to get the dish on this season's delicate details.
“A lot of beautiful fabrics from Europe; beautiful vintage looking inspired embroideries,” Badgley told “Extra” about what is hot for the hip bride.
A light Chantilly lace dress, decked out with crystal and black diamond is Badgley's favorite, but no matter what you wear, their number one bridal beauty tip is to be sexy.
“I think the bride should be sexy,” Mischka told us. “I think that's how she keeps her husband's interest and gets him to the altar.”
The average cost for a Badgley Mischka bridal dress? A cool $7,000, which is a small price to pay for looking like a million bucks!
In the same price range are the exquisite dresses by celeb-favorite Monique Lhuillier, who describes her frilly and feminine bridal style as traditional with a modern twist.
“There's a little bit of Marie Antoinette going on,” she told us. “And then there's also a little bit of traditional lace, Grace Kelly, but reworked for a modern woman.”
While Monique prefers warmer ivory and cream tones, her number one bridal beauty tip is try it on.
“Go into a salon and try on several different silhouettes because you never know what looks great on your body,” she suggested. “Even if you love something in a magazine, it doesn't mean it's going to look fabulous on you.”
