Zuhair Murad Fall 2016 Bridal Collection

Last week we learnt the news that actress Sofia Vergara, mainly known for her role as Gloria in Modern Family, is about to marry her fiancé, Joe Manganiello, in a Zuhair Murad wedding dress. While this choice is definitely not a surprise, as Vergara never wastes an opportunity to show off her love for the brand appearing in one of Murad’s dresses, it is surely going to be interesting to see what kind of dress she chose to wear. The news came just a week before Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad unveiled his fall 2016 bridal collection with his absolutely enchanting dresses and hyper-glamorous settings for the images.

Zuhair Murad’s magical aesthetic and signature details including decorated bodices and romantic silhouettes have been embraced in this collection paired with cosmic motifs and intricate embroideries, often interrupted by shining pearls and delicate crystals. His collection with its princess-like gowns travels heavenwards, studding each piece with all the stars of the firmament. The line-up’s ethereal refinement is to be found literally everywhere, from the wedding veil to the stilettos shoes, from the surroundings to the makeup.

The Zuhair Murad fall 2016 bridal collection is in perfect Murad’s style, and proves that the fashion designer has never actually stopped looking for ultra-terrestrial dresses and fairytale lines, made for feminine tastes. Murad’s collection always celebrates the female body, making it look stunning and confident wherever its size or shape is. Murad, who made his first appearance on the catwalks in 1999, has never stopped making gorgeous dresses, chosen by many celebrities at their red carpet events.

Blessed with this astral theme, the collection travels at the same time backwards, redesigning some of the most glamorous Seventies’ evening dresses in a more modern way, definitely giving the line-up a smoking hot diva’s look. These are goddess-approved wedding dresses, meant to be worn both by the more traditional brides, who prefer conventional cuts, and by those, who love extravagant lines and atypical appliqués. The nontraditional brides can count on some exceptional body-hugging pieces, the mermaid gowns and sheer fabrics being definitely the right choice for all those brides who look for a sensual and jaw-dropping wedding dress.

On the other hand, the more traditional brides-to-be can opt for some fairy voluminous dresses, made of eye-catching sweetheart necklines, empire waists and bouffant skirts filled with romantic pleats. Even the more romantic pieces enjoy playing with patterns of see-through fabrics, which almost work like strategic cut-outs.

Other interesting pieces included in the Zuhair Murad fall 2016 bridal collection are the many ultra-feminine lingerie-inspired dresses, the extremely long veil pieces and the form-hugging A-line flared dresses with sensuous lines perfectly matched with the constellation of spangle embroideries. Murad’s magical wedding nights go on with some Olympian dramatic dresses, at times interrupted by fairy silk tulles and georgette fluid gowns.

All together, the collection almost looks like a Nordic aurora borealis, enhanced by Murad’s settings filled with celestial strings of lights. Murad’s collection evades our human world, and so do we while looking at it.
