Barbie Blank is officially married!!! Awwwwww :) And, as expected, she did it in style! Her rehearsal dinner gown was the gorgeous confection on the left: an enthralling combination of artsy crochet and soft white satin with a sexy thigh-high slit.
The tropical beach setting of Cabo provided the paradisiacal background for Barbie and Sheldon's event. The ceremony took place under a gauze-curtained, flower-bedecked tent on the beach. Bouquets in the couple's chosen color scheme of ombre pink hues also filled the pavilion where the dinner and dancing took place. Sheldon's navy tuxedo was polished, yet a bit more relaxed than black, (i.e. perfect for a beach wedding). Barbie's magnificent wedding gown immediately put me in mind of classic romances...sweet, lovely lace and a magnificent mermaid style (sensing a trend with that shape? You sense right! It's everywhere lately.) I love the sweetheart neckline and the extra touch of lace at the strappy shoulders. Once Barbie turns around, the spritz of modernity she loves to spice her style with can be seen: this sweeping, low back. It's a perfect cut - low enough to inject a bit of allure, but still classy. The long train on this gown is completely fabulous! It's frothy and flowy, like a white-capped wave, coming home to the sand. With elegant and on-trend low knot and her au courant crown+veil combination, Barbie looks just as every bride dreams of looking on her wedding day: stunningly flawless and exquisitely happy!
Her other choices also reflect a classic, romantic feel. Her bridesmaids' gowns, as modeled by Maryse, are almost without embellishment, but have an Old-Hollywood-glamour type silhouette and a dreamy pale pink coloring that speaks perfectly of love. Barbie kept the pink theme going with mixed rose pink and white shades for the bridemaids' round bouquets, while her own included touches of cerise.
There are a couple of reasons this Fastlane gear from Charlotte immediately caught my attention. First, I'm still loving the crystal+lace combo she's come up with. It's an attractive blend of textures, showcasing both femininity and glam. Second, I LOVE the simplicity of her tank-style top. I actually even prefer it to her strappier versions. With the dynamic combo of the fabric and embellishment, the more minimal canvas works wonderfully. Finally, and most crucial, this color is completely amazing! It's an aquamarine - a gemstone shade that has more green in it than turquoise - and, since turquoise has had prominence among blue-green tones in fashion lately, this shift is eye-catching and super-fun to see!
Also popping up on the fashion radar is this intriguing galaxy-print gear from Sasha. The star-like studs are a fantastic detail, as is the multi-colored banding on her arm. It brings out the rainbow hues of the print, while the yellow piping brings a sun-bright lightness to the look. The vaguely Star-Wars vibe looks crazy cool; this is definitely one of the awesomest prints I've seen lately and the way Sasha has accented it is literally perfect.
Lastly, I couldn't help giving a shout to this beautiful lilac maxi dress of Brie's. The tie-dye-esque look gives it a boho feel, which is enhanced by the waist tie, which creates an empire look. Brie accents it with a pretty, delicate golden headpiece. The highlight of this look, though, is the color of this dress; it makes me immediately think of spring!
