I saw this gown in the November issue of Vogue. I had to bookmark the page and blog about it.
Coco Brandolini worked for the designer who is a longtime friend of her parents.
In this "too true to believed story", Mr De la Renta asks her who is making her dress. The intelligent girl looks right back at him and exclaims "You, Please". The life lesson is to jump at opportunities when they present themselves. There aren't words to decribe this gown.
It's a feast for the eyes.
A few weeks ago I did a modeling job for Mary's Bridal at Stone Mountain Park here in Atlanta.
I have posted a link to a number of the photos on my web site. Look for some of them to appear in Modern Bride and Brides magazines come Spring 2009.
The gown is a Satin A-line gown with cathedral train set off by an embroidered sweetheart portrait neckline. Note the stunning crystal/bead work, metallic embroidery with beads, sequins,rhinestones and pearls.
