A Valli beautiful bride

Wedding Dresses

Monica Feudi

Everyone in our office loved this new bridal collection from Italian designer Giambattista Valli. The fashion flock favorite, who has dressed Victoria Beckham and Mischa Barton, says requests from his friends prompted him to create a bridal line. "They're classic with a twist," the designer described the dresses to WWD. "I like to see them both as wedding and party dresses." Displaying Valli's celebrated eye for volume and texture, the designs range from bohemian looks suitable for a beach wedding to retro-chic ball gowns. I adore the show stopping ruffles on this glamorous gown (left), and our intern Jean fancies the floral adornments on this feminine dress. Retailing from $11,000 to $16,000, the line is available now through special order at giambattistavalli.com and will hit stores (along with matching stoles and cardigans) in November. —Kathryn Papanek
