This crystal and pearl beaded gown is called Glamour Pearls. The jeweled neckline caught our attention because it creates a sophisticated and classic look for the lucky lady walking down the aisle. Accessorize the dress with a pop of color in your hair, or even shoes, and not a single pair of eyes will be able to look away from you!

Dress of the Week: Douglas Hannant

This week our dress comes from designer Douglas Hannant. Danielle, CUE’s Founder and Creative Director, had the pleasure of seeing his 2011 designs in person at the Gabriella New York Bridal Salon (http://www.gabriellanewyork.com/). She marveled at how this designer, in particular, caters to all types of women regardless of style or size.

This week’s gorgeous dress bolsters Hannant’s commitment to creating unique yet traditional gowns. The strapless bodice, empire waist, and mermaid style train are very conventional elements. However, the addition of the beautiful blue embroidery on the bust, skirt and train makes this gown an eye-catching standout. Hannant states, “I really know my customer,”  and poignantly adds, “I didn’t have her when I started. She found me. She is exactly who I wanted her to be.” Well, who is she? “She loves fine things in every facet of her life. She loves luxury. She wants modern, fresh and new, yet it isn’t big news in the sense that she is never going to be wearing the splashiest, trendiest, most overexposed thing of the moment.” We applaud this great designer and look forward to keeping our eye on his style.
