"Gothic Angel" couldn't be a more apt name for Claire Pettibone's latest wedding dress collection. The queen of bohemian couture looked to the heavenly skies for inspiration this season, drawing inspiration from iconic cathedrals like Notre Dame, Westminster Abbey, and St. Patrick's.
For her 20th anniversary runway show, Pettibone played with a lot of delicate metallic details. Gold tasseled fleur-de-lis's and silver sequins added some glam, while sky blue and black lace added depth to the looks, creating a similar effect to stained glass.

Pettibone's range, though, remained inherently ethereal. Angelic ribbons trailed one lace sheath, while many of the dresses looked as though they had wings thanks to voluminous sheer sleeves. A cathedral-length veil was paired with one shimmering lace mermaid number, and three other silver-spotted lace creations glistened down the runway. But it wouldn't be a Claire Pettibone show without some insane backs, which the designer delivered in the form of opulent lace appliqués over illusion backs.
