Prim and proper Jason Wu Collaborates with Provocative La Perla. The designer enlisted La Perla this season to add a sexy touch to his super-feminine looks……   “They understood my vision for the Spring collection and went above and beyond my expectations in creating the most luxurious accent pieces to go with my designs,” said Wu on working with the lingerie brand.  Spring 2013 just got sexy!

Vera Wang’s Grand Collection

15 Apr

Today is the day!!! The unveil of Vera Wang’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection. Aahh the suspense……Are you on the edge of your seat?

Vera did not show one white dress today. Last season nudes and blacks dominated her show ,but today Vera went BOLD really bold and went straight for our hearts with RED , all shades of the beautiful color . Times are  changing, brides wear color  and Vera is ready to provide it. As much as she sticks to traditional aesthetics of bridal gowns, I admire her willingness to try anything. She definitely brings the WOW factor and is always ahead of the curve. I LOVE IT!

“The symbolism of red. Boldly romantic, charming, protective, grand, seductive, sexy. from dahlia to scarlet, crimson and vermillion. A celebration of love”  Vera Wang

Brides to be can preview Vera’s Spring 2013 Bridal Collection at the VW Bridal house in NYC 4/19 through 4/22.
