The Trend: Tasteful With a Twist

The Dress: 147 by Anne Barge, Chosen by Kleinfeld

As bridal gowns started to take a turn towards sexy—make that, really sexy—Anne Barge bucked the trend by continuing to create the well-made, luxurious gowns that marked her debut in 1999, and her gowns stood out because they were modest, yet stylish. And friendly to all body types—the cummerbund in this style (pictured left) is one of her signatures and cinches the waist in a very flattering way, while the updated Sabrina neckline offers coverage without looking prissy.
