Modern Romance

gown This chic number from bridal couturier Vera Wang’s Fall 2015 collection is a blend of chic modernity and feminine romance with its dreamy lace-trimmed tulle layers and sculpted bustier top. We’re loving how the lightweight skirt of this ballgown is great for any wedding, from a garden celebration to a ballroom reception.

Hair Our cover girl Lulu’s bouffant gets a modern update with tousled locks and a sparkling hair band. Hair stylist Alvin first tease Lulu’s hair at the crown to create volume, before smoothing the front of her hair over the teased hair and pinning it up. A light spritz of hairspray keeps the style in place.

Amp Up The Drama

hair For daring brides seeking a dramatic look, try an over-the-top headgear like we did, with tons of tulle and a romantic floral headpiece. Just be sure to keep the rest of your outfit sleek and modern, like these ultra-stylish jewellery from Tiffany & Co.

makeup Here, Kenneth rimmed Lulu’s peepers with a metallic bronze eyeshadow that looks both glamorous and romantic without the harshness of a black smokey eye. Finish with lashings of mascara, rosy cheeks and an on-trend matte lip.
Get Creative

For your pre-wedding photos, think out-of-the-box for interesting ways to style your shoot. For this picture, we photographed a regular-sized floral hair clip before digitally resizing it and placing it on our model.
