Vintage Weekends: A glimpse of 50s in the Future

Audrey Hepburn.  Marilyn Monroe.  Sophia Loren.  Elizabeth Taylor.  Grace Kelly.  Barbie. Who knew they would be our wedding era trend setter and wedding fashion inspiration for the future?  What they all have in common? The ever stunning 1950s Styled Wedding Gowns!

Look closely... you may never could have guessed that these fashion icons have begun the future gown trends since the Fashion of the 1950s. Those were the golden times, where fashion  was all about timeless style and demure glamour, and these women embraced it beautifully.  We speak for the entire decade – not to mention these bombshell beauties - oozed a kind of elegance, grace and sophistication that no other decade since has been able to touch.  Moreover, these trends  were  emulated by sultry, 1950s pin up girls reflected an element of class unscathed by raunchy obscenity or flagrant missteps.
It was then inspiration that  gives the figure flattering tea length dresses and haute couture gowns; long sleeve, satin gloves and birdcage veils.  There fitted waists and poodle skirts; delicately embroidered bust lines and ravishingly rouched waistlines.  And while there are some parts of fashion history we all hope will never returned (err... 1980 linebacker shaped, puffy sleeved disasters!), however its not hard to miss why 50s glamour is one of the most inspiring eras on the red carpet, especially in the world of bridal fashion.
Do check out below examples of where old world icons and modern day designers have emerged, and the results, is soooooo epic!  (Adapted and Intrepreted from Marilyns Keepsakes)
