5.0 out of 5 stars Both vintage and contemporary choices

3.0 out of 5 stars the perfect wedding dress
Disappointing in styles. Thank you. There were no natural coloured photographs to give one the right kick for a challenging style. Cheers!

This review is from: The Perfect Wedding Dress (Paperback)
This is a surprisingly delightful resource for anyone interested in designing their own dress or just research what style of dress is most becoming on them. Though this would be interesting to anyone looking for a dress, the real beauty of this book lies in the details that a wedding magazine won't include. These aren't fashion spreads from a magazine more interested in an overall look and not showing the details of the gown. There are no oddly posed, slumped back models masking the lines of the dress from view in this one. Dresses date from the early 1920's to 2005. Several older photos are of famous gowns worn by Princess Dianna, Audrey Hepburn, Princess Grace, Mia Farrow, Elizabeth Taylor, Queen Elizabeth, plus more modern celebrities such as Kate Winslet, and Liv Tyler. Excellent photos allow enough detail and a full view of gowns to inspire your own designs. This book offers separate chapters on necklines, sleeves, backs, accessories, veils, trains, and details. Chapters also separate the style of dress by ball gown, princess, empire, mermaid and fishtail, column, a-line, mini and midi, and suits. Each silhouette is further discussed be a description of style, history, classics, who should wear it, and fabrics. Numerous pictures depict full length shots of gowns and close-ups of details. I wish I'd had this when making my first daughter's dress. I'm glad I'll have it for the next daughter's dress.
