Bridal Fashion Week kicked off in New York City! Designers like Monique Lhuillier, Marchesa, Reem Acra, Carolina Herrera, Amsale, and more will debut their latest wedding dress collections, and Brides Fashion Director Rachel Leonard will be in the front row for every single show. As part of an ongoing fashion week series, Rachel will spotlight her favorite looks from the day to give our readers insider access to the wedding world's most gorgeous gowns. Watters, Eve of Milady, Alon Livne, and Samuelle Couture were some of the standout shows from day three. Here are Rachel's favorite looks from each collection.
Watters (far left): In a collection filled with plunging necklines and cool, '70's beach-inspired looks, it was hard to pick only one favorite. But this simple, light and airy strapless A-line wedding dress from Watters is just what we'd want for our seaside nuptials.
Eve of Milady (left, center): The latest collection from Eve of Milady was filled with tons of gorgeous beaded details, feminine silhouettes, and elegant lace creations. We loved this sleek trumpet style, complete with a classic sweetheart neckline and just the right amount of bling.
Alon Livne (right, center): Sexy beaded numbers ruled the emeriging Israeli designer's collection. With a deep v-neckline, glamorous high slit, and perfectly-placed beaded details, this wedding dress would look amazing down the aisle, as well as the red carpet.
Samuelle Couture (far right): This head-to-toe lace wedding dress may seem conservative at first glance — it boasts a high neckline and three-quarter length sleeves — but it's the perfect balance of sexy and demure with plenty of illusion details on the bodice and skirt.
