Yesterday I spotted this dress on the Coveteur, it a Carolina Herrera, worn by Karla Martinez. I am in love with this dress! Then is got me thinking about how much I love dresses and how amazing it must be to be a couture dress designer....
Which lead me to think about one of my favorite dresses, my wedding dress.
.....ironically, the initial choice was between a a Carolina Herrera and the dress I ended up choosing below, by Manuel Mota. The Carolina Herrera was of course classic and beautiful, but when I saw this dress on a headless mannequin in the corner of a Maiden Lane shop in SF - I instantly knew this was the one!
My wedding dress, by Manuel Mota
I loved my Mothers dress too, by Teri Jon
funny candid...not a great photo of me - but great photo of the dress
Another huge plus - is that I could move in it -- which is always nice in a gown!
I need to run! ...still I thought I would leave you with the trailer from
Valentino, The last emperor. Ahhh to be a Dress designer......
I find this documentary really funny!
