Weddings are lovely events, where the bride appears so serene and so much like a lovely princess that we forget all the hard work that goes into planning every single last detail to make that day the magical moment it should be. Most of all, as we admire the perfection of the dress and how it is a breathtaking fit for the bride, or perhaps we wonder what on earth possessed her to stick to such an out-dated or simply unattractive style, we forget the hundreds of hours pored over magazines, spent in stores trying on dress after dress, trying to find that perfect combination that speaks elegance, beauty and is quite simply a reflection of the bride’s personality.
From the classic ladylike wedding to the bohemian nuptial, we saw it all at Bridal Fashion Week fall 2015. And then we took a few of our favourite fall 2015 bridal beauty looks inspired from the runway shows and wish to share them with you!
The Pearl Headband
Nothing says elegance quite the way pearls do and at Carolina Herrera the models walked down the runway in a simple elegance that cannot be denied as a bride. Her hair in a tight bun, with a playful cat-eye and peach lips, her wedding veil fell from a beautiful pearl headband that accentuated her simple beauty.
The Antique Headband
There was a bit of a focus on headbands, without a doubt, and this particular look was quite sensational. For the more vintage look, the Monique Lhuillier bride was adorned with an antique-inspired headband and a knotted chignon added to the royal elegance, all complemented with a subtle powder pink lip.
Flowers in the Hair
Blooming flowers mark the advent of the spring season, where life begins anew and a new chapter is opened in the book of life. Flowers adorning a bride’s hair, whether real or fake, are a symbol of new beginnings and fresh starts as well, adding a form of ethereal innocence to the image of the woman walking down the aisle. The catwalk supplied the same illusion as Marchesa’s models appeared with the lovely hair, a touch of rosy lips and powdery pink cheeks to finish.
Classic Chignon and Red Lips
We doubt this look could ever go out of style. The elegance is too flawless to ever truly be discarded as outdated. The low chignon, so tastefully designed, along with a deep crimson lipstick and sharp black eyeliner provides the perfect contrast against pale skin, producing the vision of a grand lady from centuries past. You can never go wrong with that particular style, which triumphed at Pnina Tornai for Kleinfeld.
A Touch of Grunge
Perhaps it’s the Kelly Clarkson reminder that really had this look stand out, but it is quite impossible to imagine a more angelic demeanour than soft waves, particularly when blonde, strong dark eyeliner framing lighter coloured eyes, and lightly stained glossy lips. Add a bit of dewiness to the cheeks that have been slightly rouged by the sun and voila! You have a look that Hollywood cannot get enough of and the Heavens probably pine over. Then again, that might just be the movie industry’s illusion since the style is oh, so common in movie weddings.
You have to admit that there is a special elegance afforded to a braid and Disney has most definitely begun a braid trend when it comes to fishtails. Frozen’s Elsa has become an inspiration to the young and old, and fashion designers are no less affected by the latest arts mastery. After all, even Alfred Angelo has followed the crowd of adoring fans and designed a wedding dress inspired by the Disney character. The look simply cannot be complete without a fishtail braid and high teased hair.
Bridal Fashion Week fall 2015 might be over, but it has left so many stunning beauty looks for our inspiration that looking astounding on that big day becomes pretty easier!
