by Azure

Transformed for your wedding day! "90210" star AnnaLynne McCord dared to be bare for a Golden Globes afterparty in this provocative, grecian-inspired white dress.

by Azure

About Bride Chic Believe it or not, the halter evolved from 1920s swimwear. Golden Age Hollywood designers popularized the look for evening, dressing stars like Garbo and Harlow.
