I decided to bring you something a little different today.
If you know me, you know that my favorite color is black.
I don’t know, maybe it’s because I am surrounded by a sea of white and ivory everyday that makes me cherish the the color.
And don’t tell me that black is a shade not a color.
I hate that.
If you know me, you also know that I don’t like when Bridal Designers use black in their wedding gowns.
I feel like they haven’t figured out how to harness the color.
It always ends up looking cheap and harsh.
Leave it to good ol’ Vera Wang to figure it out.
Now, you do have to be a special kind of elegant to pull off this black beauty, but when done well, it is breathtaking.
The bodice is made of Chantilly Lace and has soft flowers up by the neckline.
The skirt is bunches and bunches of black and blush tulle.
Vera has made a good handful of black gowns in her Fall 2012 collection and they say that it was inspired by her recent split from her husband.
Nothing sucks worse than being in the Bridal Industry and being in a crappy relationship.

Girl Power Vera. (Inspired by The Spice Girls at the Closing Ceremonies. I don’t care what anyone says, I still love ’em!)
