WEDDING: The Scarlet Gown
Queen Victoria would kick up her pantaloons in horror to the notion of anything other then white - for a wedding, considering it was the Queen that invented and branded the concept of white wedding gowns.
Prior to her reign and rules of marriage, colored gowns were a standard.
Fast-forward to Vera Wang 2013 Spring wedding collection and paint your big-day red!
Not only has Wang pulled from a palette of rich hued, saturated color such as cardinal and vermilion, but included wine and crimson to balance out the collection.
Choosing the right white for a gown also takes plenty of thought. Different skin tones, body shapes all need to be considered as one tone might work for one girl, a bright white or ecru might not.
