VERA WANG, on weddings
Nina Garcia, Editor-in-Chief at Elle interviewed Vera Wang for her ‘The little Book of Style’ about weddings. We think this is great advice for any bride and therefore would like to publish it on our B&A Blog.
Q: What is the most common style mistake a bride makes?
A: I think the worst mistake a bride can make is not to be recognisable. The essence of who she is sometimes gets lost after everyone get hold of her. Be true to your own style. If you normally dress conservatively, your wedding is not the time to try something risks. The most important thing is to wear something that makes you feel beautiful.
Q: How can bridesmaids be stylish?
A: The same rules that apply to the bride apply to her attendants as well. Do not make any extreme or unusual beauty statements. Jewellery should always be minimal, and natural makeup looks best. A pale colour can be subtle and more romantic for a summer wedding, while dark colours look great in winter. Low backs or slightly décolleté necklines can be sexy and highly appropriate during summer months: obvious cleavage, however, is never tasteful.
Q: What is your advice for guests when dressing for a wedding?
A: Regarding issues of wedding attire, everyone must defer without exception to the bride. The hour, season and venue should dictate the choice.
Q: What do you find incredibly stylish in a woman?
A: Women have to be true to themselves. You should adhere to your personal style, no matter what the situation. A woman is never sexier than when she is comfortable in her clothes.
