Runway Goes Metallic at the Paris Couture Week

From laces and netted fabrics to full, flamboyant skirts and striking colors, bridal attire has come a long way. The Paris Couture Week, which ended with the bridal collection, saw a new turn this time with hooped skirts and metallic embellishments taking over.

Jean Paul Gaultier stunned the audience with a detailed and intricately designed collection that featured metallic embellishments paired with lace. The metallic design Lent the dress a daring and bold look while the lace gave it a feminine aura. With a wide hooped skirt, the dress could even fit children who were seen hiding under the hoop, reports The Daily Mail.

Elie Saab made a stunning and bold statement on the runway with an intricately patterned lace wedding dress with a full and dramatic hooped skirt. With a veil that was floor length and a perfect match to the outfit, the creation was traditional as well as feminine and fairy like, according to

Another designer who stole out hearts with the collection was Valentino. The designer brought out a delicate essence in his bridal wear with laces and intricate patterns. Lending  a traditional feel, the necklines of the attires were kept high with a hint on sheerness on the body.

Chanel's wedding gowns were full of lace and feathers that gave a very delicate and fairy like charm to it. Models were seen on the runway holding hands, which might have been Karl Lagerfeld's way of supporting gay marriages in France. Chanel's creation looked teasing with sheer panels in the décolletage and bust.

When it's wedding outfits how one can ignore Dior. While most of the designers seemed to have played around with a lot of lace and feathers, Dior tread a different path. Keeping it extremely classy and elegant, Dior showcased figure hugging full-length gowns with stunning overcoats. Adding a dash of color, orange beads were sewn onto the gowns.
