From the Runway to the Wedding Aisle

Wedding Style Inspiration.

In our lives, most of us are not going to get a chance to work a runway like leggy supermodels but the wedding aisle is our equivalent. So I believe that haute couture fashion shows are the perfect place to find inspiration on how to look fierce on your big day. Here's some of the Spring/Summer '09 looks that would easily transition to your big day.

Clockwise from top left: A chic rolled updo with sultry eyes and subdued lips is very elegant at Caroline Herrera. A classic french roll with headband looks very polished with an exaggerated cat eye at YSL. Ralph Lauren's beachy waves and natural makeup would be a great look f0r a destination wedding. Taylor Swift's red carpet look strikes a balance between relaxed and tailored hair & makeup.

Valentino shows off layers and draping in these stunning designs.

Jenny Packman uses feminine ruffles in select areas to create an ultra feminine look. Elie Saab makes this form fitting dress less severe and more romantic with all over rusching and ruffles.

Elie Saab continues to stun with this beautiful full skirt trimmed with organza roses. And the sexy feather-like details on this other ES dress make me wish that throwing a second wedding on our one year anniversary were socially acceptable (and affordable).
