After obsessing over the grandeur of Duchess Catherine's wedding dress for the past week, I felt like it was time for a bit of a palate cleanser in the form of this sleek, streamlined gown by Junko Yoshioka. The fit-to-flare silhouette hugs the figure, while the seaming creates an elongating effect—great for shorter brides. But my favorite part of this gown is the cape, which provides truly classic coverage—it has such an Old World, romantic feel, and would be a perfect accessory for those marrying in the colder months.
