When America’s sweetheart, Anne Hathaway, announced that she was engaged, everyone became enthralled with what she would wear as she went down the aisle. Once again, we’ have some of the best of the best bridal houses came up with some delicious ideas as to what they think she would choose for her wedding dress:
Claire Pettibone specializes in ethereal dresses with a playful, vintage look; truly for a bohemian girl who wants to stand apart from the crowd. Claire’s romantic and ultra feminine line incorporates jeweled eyelet lace, silk floral appliqués and detailed European trimmings.
The Claire Pettibone 2012 “Beau Monde” collection is inspired by a languid summer in the French countryside. This juxtaposition of gilded refinement and relaxed country living adds a touch of Parisian luxury with a modern sensibility. Lots of lace, elegant sleeves, illusion necklines, and as always, Pettibone’s signature stunning back details are found in this homage to the decadence of 18th century France…ooh la la!
