5 ‘Cinderella’ inspired looks for the spring bride
Posted on March 17 2015
Lily James looked like a modern day princess in ice blue Elie Saab Haute Couture.
The tale of Cinderella is one that has been told over and over again to many little girls and adults alike, so it’s no surprise that the live action version of the story took the top spot at the movies this past weekend. Although we’re strong believers in creating our own happiness (instead of waiting for a mysterious prince to save us), we still loved the movie. The exquisite fashion, heralded by costume designer Sandy Powell was also beyond words.
Gorgeous train, check.
Another thing we couldn’t get enough of was actress Lily James’ uber chic style while promoting the film. From Prada to Dior and Elie Saab couture, the starlet hit all the right notes in her first headlining stint.
Her style was so on point that we decided to pull together our favorite looks as inspiration for the spring bride. Whether you’re thinking of opting for a traditional princess ball gown or going for a minimalist and modern look, we have no doubt that each of ‘Cinderella’s’ looks will give you butterflies and inspiration.
Lily James sported another ice blue look –this time by Prada. If you’re looking to go the goddess route with your wedding dress, this look is elegant yet sexy. It shows the perfect amount of skin without being vulgar.
We love this rose colored Dior ball gown –even more because it’s so feminine and light. If strapless is your thing, don’t be afraid to play around with different interpretations. Opting for something with texture (taffeta in this case) or less than conventional draping will make you stand out.
When it works, it works. The actress called on another Elie Saab gown for a screening at Disneyland. The whimsy and fit of this dress is what makes it so appealing. We can see it on a bride looking to incorporate nature (gorgeous woods anyone?) into her wedding.
Lily opted for a teacup length Nicholas Oakwell couture dress at the film’s Russian premiere. This length is hard to pull off but when it works, it’s perfection. The dress is elegant and reminiscent of the chic of such stars like Audrey Hepburn. The best part is that it doesn’t seem to have lost its femininity in all its understated glory.
