Wedding Dress Inspiration- Sophia Loren
Since its inception in 1946, the Cannes Film Festival has been a significant event in the film calendar. Every year famous names in the industry are invited to gather at the Palais des Festivals et des Congrès to view new films from around the world. The exclusive event is also influential for the fashion world as silver screen superstars hit the red carpet in glorious designer gear.
One of the most iconic appearances of the festival is Italian actress Sophia Loren in this elegant lace gown. The dress is a classic silhouette with its bell shape skirt, a waist defining bodice and a wide neckline to frame the profile. This superb outfit is complete with white heels and a flower headpiece to compliment her updo.
The flowery lace fabric makes this red carpet gown perfect for weddings as the large motifs defines its robust shape whilst soften the look. There’s a variety of dresses available with bold lace designs or even petal applique that can embrace your figure.
Or if flowery dresses aren’t up your street but you find the strong hourglass shape appealing then a mikado dress would be superb as the strong weight of the fabric can sculpt your figure and hold that shape for you.
