In the world of haute couture, collections often end with a designer's take on bridal fashion and such was the case with Fall 2012 Couture. Chanel, Elie Saab, Stephane Rolland, Christian Dior, Versace, Giorgio Armani, and Giambattista Valli all sent wedding-worthy gowns down the runway. Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad used his latest show to display his skill at wedding gown design. Murad has quickly become a red-carpet favorite with stars like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Blake Lively, and Jennifer Lopez (for whom he also created elaborate tour costumes). And it's easy to see why his aesthetic draws such star power. This plunging V-neck wedding gown (above) from his latest collection mingles elements that are often popular with celebrity brides: Delicate lace, sheer details, floral embroideries, and plenty of sex appeal.
