When it comes to wedding gowns, sometimes nothing can beat that classic bridal style. The beautiful wedding dress creations by Carolina Herrera capture a traditional wedding day look by combining classic chic silhouettes with elegant, ladylike tailoring and detailing.
Fashion great Carolina Herrera has dressed First Ladies from Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis to Michelle Obama as well as celebrity brides like Christina Hendricks, Jessica Simpson, Caroline Kennedy and Renee Zellweger. Herrera herself comes from a great design heritage. She landed on best dressed lists from an early age, and is known for her signature look of a tailored white shirt.
It was friend Diana Vreeland, editor-in-chief at Vogue at the time, who suggested Carolina begin her own fashion line. She hasn’t looked back since, with 280 stores in over 100 countries carrying her label.
Carolina Herrera has been designing bridal wear since 1988, and has stated that when it comes to her wedding dresses, “less is more.” Her timeless looks are refined, almost regal. No single element overwhelms the bride who wears a Carolina Herrera wedding dress, everything works together in concert to create an elegant, uncomplicated look.
Sexy trumpet, classic ball gown and slim sheaths are commonly spotted silhouettes bearing the Carolina Herrera name. Materials range from rich embroidered brocade to laser cut leather or Chantilly and Guipure lace, organza and silk mikado. Surprises like see-through backs, striped trains and hand-painted gold leaves embellish, but do not distract, from that bridal glow.
Brides seeking a timeless trip down the aisle should consider a Carolina Herrera gown. Herrera’s romantic bridal gowns work equally well at casual ranch weddings and country clubs as formal black tie affairs and church ceremonies.
If you are a sophisticated bride who believes less really is more, Carolina Herrera may be the designer for you!
