Carolina Herrera took a warmer, softer approach in her bridal collection this season. Last season, we saw silvery tones and sharply edged silhouettes. This time, she showed beautiful embroidery, sculpted chiffons, gold ribbon and beading. Take a close look at the embroidery on her Champagne strapless trumpet gown (I posted a large detail shot). It's golden wheat, bead, and thread on net over silk. Amazing!
The gold theme continued with the Cypress strapless gown and the Celine two-piece sheath and tank. There was also a Cher chapel veil that sparkled for that little bit of Cher in all of us. —Michelle Preli
