As a part of your wedding planning, I think you should take time to watch that classic old movie 'My Fair Lady' with Audrey Hepburn. It's beautifully photographed (by Cecil Beaton), romantic and funny and also the most beautiful scene shows the ever-elegant Miss Hepburn dressed up in black and white at Ascot.
Her outfit is easily the most perfect mixture of sophistication and sweetness and when it had been last sold, this year, it set the brand new owner back $3.7 million - thank goodness they threw within the hat too!
Black And wedding dresses Are So Chic
If you want the idea of dressing your bridesmaids in monochrome you'll discover some fabulous two-tone bridesmiad gowns at Dessy. Here are a few ideas ...
This first the first is Social Bridesmaid 8162, a full-length, strapless dress (although spaghetti straps are optional) having a pretty marquis lace bodice along with a sweetheart neckline. The scallop-edge detail in the empire waist sparks the trumpet skirt wonderfully developing a stylish hourglass shape that's SO elegant. But the gown doesn't hold on there! There is really a fabulous cutout detail in the back too.
Dessy Collection 2956 shown above is really a striking two-tone gown for you to have predominantly in black (left) or white (right). Or perhaps you'd have your bridesmaids inside a combo of these both! The full-length, strapless lux chiffon dress includes a sweetheart neckline and draped bodice and skirt, providing a really relaxed, easy style to put on.
For a similarly bold but different look, browse the sateen twill Alfred Sung D724P using its slightly shirred monochrome chevron skirt (below left). Again, this full-length strapless dress has optional spaghetti straps included.
I believe that possibly my personal favorite of all has to be the dress around the right above, Dessy Collection 8163. This full-length, nu-georgette dress includes a graceful halter neckline having a framed trim in the bodice and inset waistband. And the back view? Just look at this!
How beautiful is bow in the neck closure and gorgeous pleated detail around the back skirt?
This is a very champagne bridesmaid dresses that the confident bridesmaid would love to put on.
There's no doubt about it, these two-tone bridesmiad gowns from Dessy are giving Cecil Beaton's original a run for his money! I wonder which Audrey might have chosen?
