I don’t know about you, but I know that whenever I say Vera Wang wedding dress, I think about perfect, immaculate white wedding dresses with intricate designs and fairy princess cuts. Every time. And the recent celebrity weddings helped me shaped that image with even more accuracy. How lovely was Hilary Duff in her Vera Wang wedding gown?
However, the last celebrity wedding I remember being Vera Wang overloaded was Kim Kardashian’s. The most famous Kardashian was finally going to settle down with basketball player Kris Humphries. The wedding reception in itself, although completely lacked of imagination and finesse, based on a black and white theme, revolved around the bride: Kim Kardashian wore no less than three wedding dresses, all designed by Vera Wang! How exquisite is that?
Just the other day, after weeks and weeks of speculations, of paparazzi chasing the newlyweds around town/s, hunting their ring finger for any palpable proof of real marriage, the bomb went twitborne! Kim Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband of 72 days, Kris Humphries! Bam! The media went crazy, if Twitter was based on wires, they would’ve surely been on fire! The world is in shock (of course it is!), not really knowing which side to take. I’m not here to discuss that and nor to I care for fame – fabricated moments. I’m here to ask you about Vera Wang’s latest bridal collection: black wedding dresses? I mean… come on? Black bridal gowns? What the…? I know it’s maybe just a cliché, much like Santa all red and Coke – ish… But? Vera Wang’s wedding dresses just got black, man! It’s serious!
Look at them! No, just look at them! Seriously! Black wedding dresses? I know Vera is a designer and we all love her blessed talented soul! But we don’t really have to embrace anything and everything she’s force feeding us! Girls? It’s alright, it’s perfectly normal to want white wedding dresses! It’s just a fashion season! Believe me, it’ll all be over before you know it! Blink and you’ll miss it! (I cross my fingers for it to be just a flavor of a season, maybe heavily influenced by, who knows, Kim Kardashian having gone over the highest mountain top and back to have a Vera Wang bridal gown extravaganza? Just asking, innocently asking, don’t go casting the stone now!)
