So Apparently This Is a Thing: “Naked” Wedding Gowns

(Before It's News)


From Yahoo: Some brides-to-be envision their wedding gown as their one chance to go for abundant layers of giant skirts and undergarments, enjoying the frills of an old-time princess. Others are eyeing the exact opposite, particularly if they plan on taking inspiration from Bridal Fashion Week 2017, during which Israeli designer Alon Livné White sent a model down the runway in a bejeweled nude bodysuit and a wide-open hint of a skirt. Some compare the look to that of a Las Vegas showgirl, but it’s also completely in line with the trends of the past two years.

“I wanted to make something that is very showstopper, very unique, but still feminine and soft,” Livné told of the dress, called “Heaven,” which he said would be sold with a more substantial overskirt. “For the dancing, she can take off the overskirt and be more sexy.”

Much was made of the naked-wedding-dress trend during bridal shows last year. “I think the days of the bride wearing her mother’s old wedding dress are over,” Kleinfeld Bridal fashion director Terry Hall told Stylecaster. “Brides really want their own red carpet moments.”


And that means literally taking a cue from Kim Kardashian and Rihanna for their wedding gowns. Other barely there creations shown for fall 2017 include a golden lace gown by Isabelle Armstrong, but for the really skin-revealing gowns, you need to rewind to the spring 2017 collections, such as Mira Zwillinger’s, which is almost completely made up of sheer styles.

As the New York Times pointed out last year, most brides who choose these gowns also opt for opaque, nude-colored panels or undergarments to wear underneath them.
