Happy Friday afterno-errr evening, ladies and gentles! HOLY MOTHER OF HOLYNESS I FINALLY FINISHED THIS POST. Hey Alison, why don’t you go on a date with photoshop (that’s fancy speak for ‘sit at your desk all day’) and break a hand-holding record with it, without pee breaks or water or other sustenance all in an effort to compile an up-to-snuff list of only your favorite pulls? Because it’s not like anybody’s anxiously waiting with baited breath to see these dresses or anything. Really. Be a perfectionist about it. It’s cool. No no, it’s cool, really.
I’m weirding myself out talking to myself in third person. Going to stop that. I’m sorry to post these a tad later today than I’d hoped, but I truly hope it was worth the wait :)
Yeah, so you know how I had that little press preview Thursday morning to see Elie Saab/Manuel Mota’s 2012 Collections for Pronovias? WELL………..
FYI that’s the lovely Darcy Miller of Martha Stewart Weddings in the black boots on the left on stage. I note this to make sure no one who doesn’t know Darcy Miller’s appearance starts going up to Darcy Miller and saying ‘hi Alison!’ to Darcy Miller since a lot of you don’t know ma face and might think that’s me(?). So it isn’t; it’s the lovely Darcy, and for the record, she always looks AMAAAAAAZEFACE. I don’t understand how she always looks SO AMAZE. Like 24/7, AMAZECAKES.
Aright, enough about that. I have other people to talk about.
You guys, I’ve loved Grazia and Tatiana of Wedding Salon for quite some time, and I’m sure we’ve met in passing at events in the past, BUT we’ve been mostly that *Twitter friends* kind of friends that you become when you work in this business and meet tons of people in your industry without literally meeting them which has a great way of making you feel a special, highly potent kind of dorky and uncool. It was kind of a barrel full of ridiculous that it took us until now to meet, but anyway we FINALLY got a chance to hang, face to face, and now I fully comprehend why they’re so successful at what they do. They’re the freaking loveliest girls, inside and out. It was so great seeing you ladies, with your lovely faces and personalities. Thank you for having me :)
Quick but very important shout out/thank you to everyone at Pronovias for generally being an excellent bunch, committed to putting out gowns that actually LOOK AMAZEBALLS ON THE FEMALE FORM. Not every designer out there makes this a priority for some reason, so I always appreciate it where I can find it. Now, check out the professional pics they gave me to share with you guys. I think they’re a little bit better than mine.
… a smidgen.
Next week, more real weddings, more personal s**t about my life as per usual, more scintillating Dear TKB reader questions AAAAAAAND the Pronovias 2012 Collection. GEEEEEE!!!
Oh, you thought that just happened to your face, I bet. The Pronovias 2012 Collection. But it didn’t. Elie by Elie Saab and Manuel Mota for Pronovias happened to your face. Next week…
… the collection given the name Pronovias – which includes that there dress above this sentence – hits the blog. OMG. Just, OMG.
Do you have any favorites? I’ve tried to attach each and every dress from the professional pics with it’s specific dress name. Hope that helps in your dresses searching process! It takes FOR. EH. VAAHHH but I always wished it was easier to figure out the name and/or style number of dresses so I hope this is useful.
xoxo! - Alison
P.S. – I’ve got a Vera Wang Collection event this weekend, so I’ll be sure to take a flurry of photos during that, too, as I generally like to take way too many photos of everything. Did you know I took so many photos on my iPhone that it’s full up? Like, literally, I can’t take any more photos until I clear some other photos. Photos I don’t want to clear.
Life’s so hard.
