This week on #Twitterati, Spring 2013 Bridal Week dares to go red and bare, Tyra Banks goes on an axing spree …
and Roberto Cavalli trashes American fashion and possibly Anna Wintour, too. For more where that came from, scroll down to read this week’s fashionable recap according to the hottest celebrities, top editors, and most followed bloggers.
Traditional wedding gowns took a backseat during Spring 2013 Bridal Week. Vera Wang sent out a slew of red gowns that ranged from fire engine red to deep scarlett. Having dabbled in both green and black in previous bridal collections, Wang is no stranger to colorful bridal gowns. However, this is the first Vera Wang Bridal Show where white was nowhere in sight. The fashion world more than embraced Wang’s version of the crimson bride. Style.com gave Wang’s Lady in Red the thumbs up tweeting, ”Red Gets The Green Light At #Bridal Week.” @InStyle agreed tweeting, “We’re seeing RED!” while listing their top 5 picks.
Not to be left behind, Oscar de la Renta’s Bridal collection included a Spanish style red gown, which was accessorized with a towering head piece. Other unconventional and, dare we say, risque wedding options included a very fashion-forward pantsuit that was paired with a torso-baring cropped top. Fashionista.com tweeted, “Oscar de la Renta showed colorful bridal gowns (and a crop top!). We love some of the non-traditional options.” Others were a bit more skeptical about the stomach-baring design. The Huffington Post asked via twitter, “Would you wear this Oscar de la Renta crop top at your wedding?” Women’s Wear Daily‘s@kristigarced definitely would. The online fashion reporter tweeted, “@rachelstrugatz and I are going to get married (to each other, if all else fails) in crop tops à la Oscar. Yesplzt.” Does that mean that wearing red or a cropped top to a wedding will now be considered a faux-pas toward the bride.
