Ahh. Is there anything better in this world than Bridal Fashion Week? Specifically, is there anything better than Oscar De La Renta's Bridal Fashion Week show? Don't get me wrong, regular Fashion Week is cool and all, but it's just not the same as frothy white (and off-white, and cream — oh, and in the case of Zac Posen, red, black and fuchsia) Bridal Fashion Week. I mean, it's basically every daydream you had as a five year old made corporeal at the hands of some of the most talented designers in the world. There have been a lot of great shows so far — Reem Acra's ethereal gowns have been especially beautiful, as has Monique Lhuillier's signature fairy tale glamour — but my favorite of the bunch might just be Oscar de la Renta, which is now the brainchild of Creative Director Peter Copping.
In a lot of ways, Oscar de la Renta is the epitome of bridal fashion. aAfter all, the famous fashion house is known for their ultra-classic, ultra-feminine designs — and what more could a bride-to-be ask for? The spring collection is just as gorgeous as you could hope for — I actually had a hard time choosing a favorite. All the lace dresses were breathtaking, and I had a soft spot in my heart for the dramatic tiered ball gown (it kind of reminded me of Rihanna's off-the-chain Giambattista Valli cupcake dress). So, with all that in mind, here are the top 10 dresses from Oscar de la Renta's Spring 2015 bridal line:
10. This Boudoir-esque Gown
The structured lingerie look of the bodice paired with the Swan Lake-worthy skirt gives this dress an ultra-romantic feel.
9. This Feathered Number
8. These Sleeves
100 percent bridal chutzpah.
7. This Floral Dress
Is anything prettier than creeping vines? I think not.
6. This Structured Ball Gown
The lace pattern is absolutely gorgeous, and the pleats take things to the next level.
5. This Modern Number
Perfect for a summer wedding on the beach.
4. This Classic Lace Dress
Very Grace Kelly-approved.
3. This Intricate Gown
The high waist and cap sleeves gives this dress a charming, retro feel.
2. This Art Deco Number
Everything about this dress is perfect, from the gorgeous draping to the intricate pleated ruffles.
1. This Layer Cake
This dress was somehow magically taken from my imagination.
