I must admit, I'm a tough sell when it comes to ball gowns. I often find them too precious or cutesy and end up gravitating to something more streamlined and sophisticated. But when done right, a designer is able to capture the best of both worlds—and that's exactly what Amsale did with this dreamy confection. The gown's structured bodice balances out the soft tulled skirt, while the jeweled neckline adds just the right amount of bling to keep things interesting. This gown has black-tie wedding written all over it.
