10 GORGEOUS LAZARO WEDDING DRESSES

I was helping my girlfriend pick out a wedding dress.  I specifically love Lazaro’s but they can cost as much as $10,000.  Thanks to technology, after scouring the internet I discovered you can get knock off wedding dresses (specifically Lazaro) for $200 and below custom sewed to your measurements from China.  You only get to wear it for one day so why not look like a million dollars, without spending the $.  I’d rather buy $10,000 worth of wine for my guests or upgrade to a seafood menu.

20 Beautiful Couture Gowns from Designers You’ve Probably Never Heard about

It’s been a while since I’ve done a fashion blog.  I’ve been looking at couture lately and I miss the fashion scene.  Here are 20 beautiful couture gowns I came across from designers that are not quite in the mainstream media.  Yes a fitness chick can love fashion.  If you didn’t know, I’m a fashion major.

  1. Zuhair Murad… I would take the gaudy stars and style this with a thorny crown of suggested stars and not so much literally.  That look will give it a more mature look as opposed to the youthfulness the stars project.
  2. evening-wear-haute-couture-by-zuhair-murad-2015-16-47

2. Shady Zeineldine… Mellifluous.

3. Michael Cinqo.  Beautiful styling and contrast of color.

4. Victor Harper.  I love fringe.  Very 30’s.  This season glamour, bling and luxury are in style.

1a6b10a4e53a5946c57d3f01525fbe16

5. Jack Guisso.   Oppositional from the trend, I like this, it is very Marc Jacobs, very minimal as opposed to the ostentacious trends.

ac33a519e049f03036f208041b09d10e

6. Ellie Saab.  Very Byzantine.  Love the fall colors and contrast of dark to nude lining (or is it see through?)

4771cd7a2fc19850d463c995439be2961

7. Christian Siriano. Romantic ingenue, classic of Sirano.

8. Yochi Ben.  Haven’t heard of this designer before but I love the Asian influance.

9. Dany Tabet.  An entire collection of BEAUTIFUL gown.  Very bling, gaudy and the perfect club dress for Vegas. (:  Hard to pick just one… so I picked two.  I am assuming he is Lebanese as he is from Beruit.  Notice the religious symbols in the second dress?

10. Delik Hanif.  Sometimes fashion is best done simply.

4d467077b6f72bf401b7b6e09ef99d80

11. Pedro Loredo.  WHat a great silhouette and use of texture.  Notice the fabric?  Special prints like this take a lot of technical planning and increases cost due to production of specialty fabrics.

1df08088c2b5a9cf441298dc97099741

12. Ziad Nakad.. Simplistic and gorgeous.  I would have the model’s hair styled in a finger wave with dramatic eyeliner. Very 30’s.

68e32c36ef5d501ee6fc35888c56486c

13. Ziad Nakad.  I would suggest the same styling with this piece as well, which is from the same collection.

8ae880b3455163b8cc0831bdab6dc87f

14. Alexandre Vauthier.  This was an amazing dress but I would’ve liked to see the model walk it better.

15. Jean Louise Sabaji.  Gorgeous use of texture and a unique contrast of textile. Sci Fi meets ingenue.

31-640x960

16. Darius Cordell.  Simplstic and gorgous.  I love the simple styling with natural makeup and natural hair.  I could see Queen Margery wearing this dress in Game of Thrones, or Kahleesi.

38fac2d20d08e6c6727e935bc8536d08

17. Julien Macdonald.  I love sexy dresses.  This is my personal favorite.  I would’ve chosen a taller model where this dress will hang, and someone more flat chested w ping pong breasts.  Dresses that show off cleavage often always look best on smaller women, unless you are going for the stripper look then DD’s will suffice.  And taller women, clothes will hang differently.  A ivory skinned red head would’ve rocked this look best.

18. Marchesa. Classic Marchesa romantic tones.   Very deconstructed which is very different for Marchesa which is usually very finished.  marchesa-001

19. Valentino Spring 2016 (Ok I know you’ve heard of Valentino but this collection was too gorgeous to be left out.)

valentino-spring-2016-haute-couture-runway54

The detail on this is AMAZING.  Very Byzantine/Early Christian.  A political statement by Valentino perhaps a religious statement?  Notice the snake in the photo above?  A religious symbol in Christianity as well.  Very Abyssinian.
