Runway Sneak Peek:
Rivini Sketch

Wedding Dresses

To evoke the painting "Scena Galante" by Giovanni Boldini—a fashionable portraitist in late-19th-century Paris—Rita Vinieris designed her latest Rivini collection with diaphanous silks and laces draped to create motion, pleating and feather accents, and textured layering. This ball gown pairs a structured bodice of draped bands with a silk organza and pleated tulle skirt edged in horse hair. The waist is accented by an elderberry grosgrain belt tied in a bow and finished with a brooch of black diamond crystals. Ooohlala, indeed. For more designs from Rivini, browse our Wedding Dresses gallery. —Phillip B. Crook
