Happy Tuesday afternoon, faces! We’ve got some goodness today, and we’re starting it off with a wee little thing called a giveaway, courtesy of our friends over at Brides Magazine. Not to mention, a first look at one of their styling features, which you can see as of TODAY, since it’s officially available for download right now, April 17th! The completely revamped mag hits newsstands April 24th, fyi, if you like good old fashioned hands-on reading – something I cherish in this modern world.
Ok, here’s a little info on that GORGEOUS cover shot, from Brides Mag:
Our May issue actually features three different covers, a first for Brides. This particular cover was photographed by Bèla Adler. The cover look, an ivory silk mikado gown with a floral embroidered and beaded bodice, is by Elie Saab for Pronovias. The earrings are diamond studs set in platinum by Tiffany & Co., the De Beers ring is also platinum, and The Green Vase is the genius behind that stunning magnolia branch.
YOU. GUYSIES. I am thrilled to see that Elie Saab magnificence on their cover, because that thing blew me the eff away when I saw it in person on the runway. I think we need a reminder; couldn’t hurt, right? RIGHT:
YYYYYUP. That’s a bangin’ dress. Here’s the full post I did on this line, if you’re feeling nostalgic.
Now, check out this exclusive first look at one of their killer stylist features! Here’s the rundown from Brides:
