When you see the new issue of Brides (on newsstands April 24th) you might notice some changes. From the logo to the last page, Brides has a brand new look and I’m head over heels in love with it! It’s the first issue under new editor in chief Anne Fulenwider and I just love their new look. With a fashion shoot inspired by Degas’ ballerinas, bouquets that channel the spirit of style icons like Audrey Hepburn and Debbie Harry, and fun new cocktail ideas, it’s going to be a great issue! We are sharing one of the three covers that they are debuting with the new look and a few pages from a GORG fashion spread of pastel gowns in green, pink, and blue hues that has everyone rethinking a white dress.
The spreads above are from the May 2012 fashion feature, Pale Fire. The piece was photographed by Sandra Freij and produced by Rachel Leonard and shot at Academy Mansion. The top page features a nude-over-purple silk-tulle draped gown with a corset bodice and full skirt by Samuelle Couture ($8,500) and Gold d’Orsay sandals by Ann Taylor ($128). The bottom page features an ice blue mousseline V-neck gown with raw-edge layered detail and cross-hatch embroidery by J. Mendel ($6,450). The issue will be available for download on April 17th and hits newsstands on the 24th.
And to celebrate their gorgeous new look, GWS has TEN year-long subscriptions to give away to you lovelies! Perfect for lots of pretty inspiration while you are planning your wedding. :)
