Bridal week in NYC this week was another sort of dull week where all the dresses looked exactly the same. Strapless column dresses and ball gowns were everywhere as usual. And then there was Oscar. Finally one who stepped away from the norm and did something, well, classic. We're hoping we're starting to see a resurgence in classic wedding dresses with sleeves. And we owe a huge thanks to Kate for that.
Back in 2009 when Vera Wang designed Ivanka Trump's wedding gown (seen above), she had some restrictions. You see Ivanka had just converted to Judaism and she needed something that covered for her more orthodox ceremony to her husband. Vera Wang said this... "She was actually very much about being covered and I seized the chance to do a dress that wasn't naked and very Hollywood." When asked if she thought Ivanka would start a trend with her sleeves she said, "Nothing would make me happier. I've been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It's tiring."
Lastly, all of this reminds one of us of our own wedding dress. I guess we'll see if it stands the test of time. It would be the biggest compliment if one of our own future daughters wanted to wear it.
