Fashion Week Report, Part Three: Master Class

Last night Carolina Herrera gave a master class combining art history and fashion design. Many designers have sought inspiration from the art world, but it was through Carolina Herrera's skilled hands that a lofty concept was translated into well, pure art.

Each magnificent wedding gown was inspired by a master painter, from Matisse to Toulouse-Lautrec; Carolina managed to capture the essence of the artist's style in the form of a wedding dress. One standout was the Degas gown— in an ode to the famous ballerina sculpture— with a fitted satin bodice and full blue point d'esprit tulle skirt. The model also cleverly resembled the statue, from the hairstyle to the velvet choker around her neck, and even her head was pitched forward like the tiny dancer.

The show was held at the Tiffany flagship store on Fifth Avenue and all the models twinkled in Tiffany diamonds, naturally. All in all, it was perfection. Because what bride doesn't want to look like a masterpiece on her wedding day? — Juli Alvarez, Fashion Editor
