Wedding Dresses of the Decade


The Trend: Organic, Asymmetrical

The Dress: Audrey by Vera Wang

Vera Wang held strong this decade as a top wedding dress designer, but with other bridal designers (like Reem Acra, Monique Lhuillier, and Angel Sanchez) also entering eveningwear, and showcasing their designs on the red carpet, Vera had to break away from the pack. So her collections became increasingly less commercial-classic, and more avant-garde. We are still waiting for her deconstructed and occasionally subversive styles to go completely mainstream; this particular style was tame enough to inspire the "Romanticist" Barbie doll she debuted in 2008.
