Bridal Fashion Week for Spring 2015: All the Highlights (and So Many Swoon-Worthy Dresses!)

Apr/16/2014 at 04:08 PM ET

We love all Fashion Weeks around here, but we have a special place in our heart for Bridal Fashion Week. The gowns! The gossamer! The gloriously romantic silhouettes! We sent one of our two resident brides-to-be, writer/reporter Michelle Ward, to some of the most beautiful shows in Manhattan, to report on what she saw (and, fine, maybe do a little gown research for herself). Below, check out her “diary” from the shows.

Let me start by saying, I’m getting married and I don’t have a dress yet. So to say being tasked with covering bridal week for Spring 2015 is like being a kid in a candy store is an understatement. I was dying to go. Did I mention my wedding is in spring 2015? Even better.

Now, I won’t bore you with the contents of the novel-like notebook I now own (I haven’t taken notes like that since my college finals), but I will share a few key trends I saw (think: off-the shoulder gowns, whimsical hair, embroidered veils and plenty of lace) as well as some of my favorite moments from the week. Here are some highlights:

Without further ado, we present them all to you, with the hopes you can help us answer them.

Miranda Kerr Takes Best Dressed (and Deserves It!) for the Zillionth Week

Apr/12/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

This week, the Most Loved Looks list featured the Great Hemline Debate of 2014: Minis vs. Floor-Length. Half of the ensembles featured gowns that swept the red carpet with flowing fabrics (we’re including Jennifer Garner’s sweeping custom MaxMara jumpsuit), while the others showed off their toned legs in super-short dresses. And after tallying up all the reader votes, it looks like the floor-length hems have it with Miranda Kerr coming out on top!

Jessica Biel: If Justin Timberlake Wants to Bring Back His Earrings, I'm Cool With That

Apr/11/2014 at 12:36 PM ET

Jessica Biel knows a little something about jewelry — after all, she’s been wearing it since she was too young to remember.

“I got my ears pierced when I was three,” Biel, 32, told PEOPLE at the 2014 Tiffany & Co. Blue Book party in New York. “I don’t know why my mother did that at such an early age. It’s really not synonymous with her style to do something like that, but I’m glad she did.”

But despite her early start, The Truth About Emanuel actress, who wore a plunging black Oscar de la Renta dress and a Tiffany & Co. diamond necklace and earrings from the jeweler’s Blue Book collection, says it took her a long time to get into fancy jewelry.

Nailed It: Emma Stone Does 'Modern Goddess' Right

Apr/10/2014 at 04:26 PM ET

Emma Stone Splash News Online (3)

Who: Emma Stone

Where: At the London premiere of The Amazing Spider-Man 2

What She’s Wearing: A marigold-yellow Atelier Versace dress with matching Swarovski crystal beading on the shoulders and waist, plus a David Webb necklace featuring two lion heads with emerald eyes

RELATED PHOTOS: Last night’s look: Love it or leave it?

Why She Nailed It: If a picture is worth 1,000 words, then please allow this gif at left to provide 3,000 words for us while we gape at this truly showstopping ensemble. Until now, Stone’s been sticking to menswear-inspired outfits and mod minis on her press tour, so the impact of her hitting the carpet in this incredibly romantic, curve-skimming gown is doubled.

She wisely let the bold color and open back keep the focus, adding only a chic jeweled collar and delicate sandals. And the hair and makeup are on point; the siren waves and just-bright-enough lip give her a glamorous ’40s vibe that really works for her. In fact, if you turned these photos black-and-white, you might mistake her for a real old Hollywood star — but then we’d miss out on the stunning shade of the dress.

Tell us: What do you think of Stone’s outfit? Are you as big a fan as we are?
