What would a Bond girl wear if she were to marry 007? That is the premise of Jean-Ralph Thurin’s Spring 2016 bridal collection. The designer slash self-confessed James Bond fan used Bond girls from his favorite 007 movies as inspiration for his new collection, and the result? A glam fest of unique gowns with a bit of attitude. While the names of the dresses suggest retro, femme fatale leanings, the silhouettes are actually very elegant, with the drama limited to the lavish embroidery and embellishments. The two-piece “Pussy Galore” is one of our personal favorites… we love the reverse pleating on the skirt!
This is our most aww-worthy post in a while! Stellina Cute Couture, a Sydney-based occasion wear boutique for kids has debuted its first couture collection.
