Oscar vs. Vera

More ruffles—this time, both designers keep them soft and romantic but where Oscar (right) has used them in abundance, growing smaller but more profuse as they cascade down the entire length of the gown, Vera (left) limits their exposure to below-the-knee, and pairs them with a fitted lace bodice to create an interesting contrast.
