Paris Couture Week's Latest Wedding Look Includes a Balloon-Lifted Veil

That's one way to make a statement

From Chanel's sparkling bridal swimsuit (with a veil to boot!) to dozens of other dazzling white ensembles, we've seen some stunning bridal looks from Paris Haute Couture Week 2019. But as original as the rest of the pieces have been, we think that the latest Paris Haute Couture bridal look might just take the [wedding] cake.

Celia Kritharioti's spring summer 2019 show reminded us that being bold can be beautiful. During the show, one model took to the runway in a billowing white and pale pink strapless ballgown, with a long pink and white train made up of oversized whimsical bows. The model's cathedral-length veil was levitated into the air by a handful of pink polka dot balloons. And of course, the look wouldn't be complete without its own theme music—traditional circus music played as the model made her debut down the runway.

Unlike the rest of the look, the model's hair and makeup stayed relatively simple—her natural makeup look was paired with a low middle-parted bun.

One of the show's attendees, who goes by theTwitter name Ms. Laurent, posted a video of the over-the-top display that revealed the entire runway walk in all its glory.

As mentioned before, this wasn't the only shocking bridal look during this week's shows. To close out its haute couture spring 2019 show at the Mediterranean gardens in the Grand Palais in Paris, Chanel dressed model Vittoria Ceretti in an embellished one-piece bathing suit, complete with an embellished bridal swim cap and a shimmery cathedral-length veil.

If there's anything we learned this week, it's that taking a risk in your bridal style can pay off, big time. Whether you're a daring bride (or just really love the circus) we recommend taking a page out of Celia Kritharioti's book.
