Carolina Herrera Bridal 2010: Artfully Masterful

Carolina Herrera Bridal 2010: Artfully Masterful

Share
With Tiffany & Co.'s iconic Fifth Avenue flagship serving as the venue, any fashion show contained within its vaulted walls had better not disappoint. Cue Carolina Herrera, whose elegant (yet always with a hint of whimsy) bridal designs floated down the carpeted "runway" Sunday night surrounded by millions of dollars worth of sparkling gems.

For her latest collection, Herrera paid homage to those artists whose work featured fashion prominently. The knife strokes in Vincent van Gogh's sunflowers were reincarnated as taffeta ruffles; Monet's brilliant watercolor water lilies were hand-painted onto white English tulle, and Matisse's paper cutouts were fashioned into duchess satin leaves embroidered onto a tulle column.

Indeed, in these economic times, one never knows where her potential bridal client could surface; thus Herrera's show offered a gamut of choices, appeasing everyone from the prim and proper Park Avenue socialite (by way of Charlottesville, with the straw hat veils and white dotted fils coupé organza bustle back) to the darker, somewhat more mysterious New Orleans belle, evoking the spirit of Anne Rice, evident by the Goya-inspired scalloped black lace bolero with black scalloped lace and Velasquez's ivory faille number with black lace appliqué and coral bow.

Other artists represented in the 20-look presentation included Botticelli, Renoir, Klimt, and Manet, all of which were subtly accented with Tiffany earrings, necklaces, and Bezet collection diamond rings. carolina herrera bridal 2010 carolina herrera bridal 2010 carolina herrera bridal 2010 carolina herrera bridal 2010 carolina herrera bridal 2010
