Wedding Dresses

Conde Nast Digital Studio

Ditch plain-old ivory and white. Wedding dresses come in a rainbow of hues that are often more flattering (an enticing) than their colorless counterparts. A few of our favs? This pale blue and rich gold gown by Reem Acra (far left) that would look best on blondes with fair skin and blue eyes, redheads with blue eyes, and African-American skin tones. Or what about this lettuce-hued Vera Wang gown (far left) that would look glorious on a redhead with fair skin featuring peachy or pink undertones. And for a sweet bride, this Romona Keveza gown (middle) in a shimmering, delicate shade of lavender is more daring than pink or blue but still feels "bridal"—it has a dreamy, feminine quality that will warm up beautifully on olive skin.
