Did you catch the Oscar’s over the weekend Love Birds? I have to say my absolute favorite gown of the evening was Lupita Nyong’o’s.. how flawless does she look in everything?! I can’t even fathom how long it took to get those pearls on her dress; AH-mazing! I, sadly, lost the battle of TV in our house last night, it was me versus two main contender’s so all of my Oscar’s catch-up was done via Instagram, FaceBook & Yahoo.
This week wraps up our final pick for the month of February, from a designer known for down-to-there low back gown’s, Galia Lahav
The bead work on Lupita’s dress inspired me to choose a gown with just as much attention to detail. From the Galia Lahav ‘Tales of The Jazz Age’ collection, I give you the Katharina, complete with silver glass beads and a back cut so low your mother-in-law is sure to faint! I love the patterning of the bead work on the back of this gown coupled with the sheer train, it really completes that 1920’s jazz age feeling.
This gown would be perfectly completed by an up-do with an oversize flower.
If you really wanted to throw all decadence to the wind, and commit to the jazz age look, you can add a few strands of long, knotted pearl necklaces, you know, just because!
And of course, your look wouldn’t be complete with any shoe other than a T-Strap!!
I’m always a sucker for a T-Strap, it must be from my former life as a tap-dancer!!
I am curious to weigh in on the great debate of wearing a sexy gown for your wedding day, what do you think Love Birds? Yay or Nay?
