Dress of the Week: Kimberly by Vera Wang

This week we chose a wedding dress that is far from traditional. Kimberly by Vera Wang is a bold red, floor length dress with several different textures. These gorgeous textures start at the neckline, with hand-cut Chantilly lace applique placed so that the edges of the lace sit against your skin like semi-transparent wisps of flower petals, or springtime leaf buds. The uninterrupted layers of organza have perfect fluidity as there are no seams between the skirt and bodice. There’s also a ruffled, cascading effect in the bottom of the skirt. An almost-obscured, big, abstract flower floats in the base of the skirt – just a little burst of pleated tulle and eyelash tissue organza that is so lighthearted and joyous. On the back of the gown there is a beautiful, voluminous train that is tacked and bustled, with floating pieces of lace appliqué inserted into the organza layers that pop. This gown is the definition of controlled chaos.
