Lauren Elaine Bridal On Location: Video Clips

Throughout August, we’ve been busy photographing new Lauren Elaine Bridal collection gowns.  While the details and silhouettes of each gown are shown in the mini-lookbooks, sometimes the magic and movement of each gown is best captured with a video.  Here’s a look at a handful of video teasers from some our recent photoshoots – featuring the newly released Lauren Elaine Bridal styles. We’ll be adding more throughout September, as well as runway clips of each gown to Lauren Elaine Bridal Online shortly!

Fashion, Film, and a Bridesmaid Gown

Who says you’ll never wear a bridesmaid dress again?  I’ve been looking for an excuse to repeat my maid-of-honor gown (from my brother’s wedding last October) ever since I wore it almost a year ago. While I’ll admit that I’m a little biased–seeing as I design them–I’m always happy and flattered to hear from bridal parties who love their gowns and dresses so much, that they re-wear them to cocktail parties, and even weddings. As a bridal designer, I’m always striving to break the cliche when it comes to bridesmaid frocks- I enjoy designing gowns that are more red carpet, than bridal aisle. So even though I didn’t  intend on recycling my MOH gown for the International Fashion Film Awards, when I spilled a glass of champagne down the front of my original all-white ensemble while primping, I wasn’t exactly devastated about my backup choice.

Best Dressed: Alyssa Campanella in Monte Carlo

I’ve been so busy these past few months that I haven’t had a chance to share this stunning red carpet look from favorite muse Alyssa Campanella. Back in late May, Alyssa looked the part of a golden goddess at the 2014 Monte Carlo TV Festival’s “Golden Nymph” awards- Monaco’s version of the Oscars – in a champagne hued Lauren Elaine Bridal collection gown.  For the very royal affair, Alyssa wanted something regal, and something fitting for the event’s black tie dress code.  With peekaboo french lace embroidery, a plunging neckline, and flowing train, Alyssa served up some serious drama while keeping with her signature lady-like style, and topped Glamour Magazine’s ‘Best Dressed’ list.

Patriotic Play

Memorial Day marks the unofficial start of summer, and the time when one of my  favorite color trios starts popping up everywhere.  While I love a good mix of red, white, and blue, I also love to change things up.  During my recent creative retreat in Palm Springs,  I decided to get a head start on a patriotic summer look by pairing the new “Praireigh” Maxi from Laine by Lauren Collection with a starry navy top, and substituting the classic red with a pop of bright orange. Swapping orange for red, or even teal for navy, is a great way to channel your inner ‘American girl’ without looking like a flag.  Shop Praireigh HERE.

Spotted: The Landry Dress

There’s one word that I always use to describe my personal style:  feminine.  Sometimes I lean a little bohemian, sometimes more conservative–but always feminine. So while enjoying my recent creative retreat to Palm Springs, I decide to embrace my obsession for classic, lady-like silhouettes in the new “Landry” dress from Lauren Elaine Black.  I love the timeless cut paired with a bold, playful print- and the open back is perfect for hot summer days (or nights). SHOP “Landry” here.
