Whether watching the stars on the red carpet or enjoying AMC’s Hit show Mad Men, we continue to be fascinated with Old Hollywood 50’s inspired glamour and elegance. The timeless beauty of these fashions is still relevant and popular almost 60 years later. Classic beauties like Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly or Jacqueline Kennedy remind us why the 1950’s fashion is timeless.
The internet is abuzz with search phrases such as; 50’s inspired wedding gown, Vintage-inspired wedding gowns and old Hollywood inspired wedding gowns. Penelope Cruz was a vision in a gown by Balmain
at the 2009 Oscar Awards Ceremony. She made the top best dressed on many lists.
If you’re a bride interested in a look that you won’t regret in 20 years (recall puffy sleeves of the 80’s), consider a vintage inspired dress
surely to be timeless for another 60 years and beyond.
One of our favorite wedding gowns is Aquila
from Australian designer, Roz la Kelin, featured in the first photo. The ¾ length strapless dress features a subtle hint of baby pink, a modern twist to a classic design.
