Like a princess: Exquisite dresses for your magical day
Each year designers create new concepts and it’s amazing how the classic white dress can be remade into something new and fresh. Blush pink is making a real statement, reminiscing sweet English roses and adding to the romance of a wedding. Duchess Katherine Middleton started a lace trend with her stunning Alexander McQueen dress designed by Sara Burton. She also brought sleeves to notice, giving designers the idea of adding lace jackets or caplets to complete the look. As for embellishments, floral details, beading, ruching, ribbons and ruffles can make a dress a showstopper. These featured dresses incorporate timeless beauty while remaining new and exciting. How could you not feel like a princess once you step into one?
