Sometimes you can't plan the perfect shot — it just happens on its own. That was exactly the case with our April cover. Originally an outtake from April's "Swept Away" fashion story, we put it on the cover at the last hour. With perfectly undone hair, natural makeup (you can still see the model's freckles peaking through) and an intricately beaded Marchesa gown, we loved this fuss-free way of showcasing a wedding dress. Getting married on the beach like this bride? Don't worry about a few stray fly-aways — go natural and enjoy your day.

Think this is the look for you? Our Dressing Room allows you to virtually try on tons of beautiful dresses, featured in the magazine. Don't forget to complete the look by trying on the perfect virtual hairstyle in our Beauty Salon, too!
