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:

In case you got distracted by all the Oscars excitement, we’d like to point out that Paris Fashion Week has been continuing full speed (or as fast as it can go in extremely high stilettos on Parisian cobblestones, anyway). And Tuesday marked possibly the most major style moment of all: Vogue editor Anna Wintour — arguably the most powerful woman in fashion — took a second row seat at Valentino. But before you clutch your pearls at that major snub, let blogger BryanBoy explain what went down:

Now that that’s cleared up, take a look at our roundup of the other head-turning moments happening at Paris Fashion Week, from the Chanel “supermarket” set (and Kendall Jenner’s latest modeling foray) to Alexander McQueen’s remarkable eyebrows. Then tell us in the comments which shows you’re loving the most!

Rihanna's Paris Fashion Week Style: Plenty of Plunge, Fur and Completely Sheer Tops (Bien Sûr)

When you think Paris Fashion Week, you might think structured skirts, chic sunglasses and elegant couture. And then there’s Rihanna‘s version of Paris Fashion Week, which includes thigh-highs and garters, lots of fur and some crazy bold accessories. She keep us guessing, which is why never tire of talking about her unique fashion choices (who else would splurge on something like $837 socks?). That’s why we can’t wait to hear what you think about her latest round of head-turning outfits.

The singer kicked things off at Balmain Thursday (she’s the brand’s face) in an allover army green ensemble. The wow factor part of the look? The leather belted trench coat sans bra underneath. Next — the most covered up look of the bunch — RiRi went for a charcoal gray slacks, a peplum jacket and fur stole to catch all the front row action at Lanvin. And Friday she selected a red furry coat over an itty-bitty black dress by Dior for the label’s show. And to give the look more of a burlesque feel, she added thigh-high stockings and garters, a pearl necklace and leather gloves.

Katy Perry is having the buzziest week ever. From her new banged bob to all that engagement ring talk to her performance at the Brit Awards and the release of her new “Dark Horse” video, the star keeps making headlines. And Thursday she continued on “The Katy Perry Self-Promotional Tour” (we’re not knocking … just cheering from the sidelines!) by hitting the Moschino runway at Milan Fashion Week.

From the photo at left, you can tell the singer practiced her sassy catwalk skills, confidently strutting her stuff in head-to-toe garb from the label: a black topper with gold chain trim, coordinating leather mini dress (with more gold bling!), sheer tights and some serious heels. She also continues to sport a handkerchief headband to frame her new short do.

Thursday’s show was designer Jeremy Scott’s debut collection for Moschino, and he enlisted not only Perry, but also Rita Ora to kick things off on the catwalk before they took their front row seats.

As for the rest of the runway? We can totally see Perry and Ora rocking the McDonald’s inspired designs or maybe even some SpongeBob couture. Tell us: What do you think of Perry’s runway cameo?

Happy Birthday Rihanna! We're Celebrating Your 27th Year With Three Pretty Dress Suggestions

Feb/20/2014 at 05:38 PM ET

We we’re having a hard time coming up with a post to celebrate Rihanna‘s 26th birthday. We wanted to do a throwback roundup of our favorite RiRi looks (this dress wins every time) or wackiest Instagram moments, but we bet you follow her and are up to speed on all that. Then we considered some gift suggestions — this faux leather skirt tops our list — but that’s all we came up with, because it’s impossible to buy for the girl who has everything (not to mention a steady stream of gifts from every designer known to man).

So we decided to come up with a list of things she should wear now that she’s officially entered her late twenties. We’re not suggesting she throw her bold style choices out the window, but in case she wants to tone it down a little (like maybe ditch the crazy prints and veils), we picked out three looks we’d love to see the star wear from fashion weeks in Milan, London and New York.
