Adriana Lima a Modest Supermodel

It seems that most top models from all over the world correspond to the particular stereotype and life style when their biography is examined. Supermodels are mainly too ambitious women with some delusions of grandeur, though. They aspire to exploit all their beauty and grace gifted by nature, youth when they are fifteen to twenty and the diligence to earn as much money as possible to become the idol for the weaker sex and the object of desire from the stronger sex.

Signet Rings Sign of Reputation and Power

Wedding Fashion 2010: A Parade of Wedding Styles

Wednesday, 24 February 2010
wedding fashion 2010Each year brings about a shift in wedding trends. 2010 wedding trends continue some of the popular items of 2009, with a subtle twist. It used to be that wedding style didn't change much from year-to-year. But the wedding fashion industry has changed greatly over the last two decades, and the 2010 wedding trends prove that. With spring just around the corner, women still in the planning stages for their wedding day are looking for the latest styles in bridal gowns. The latest trends for wedding dresses include glamorous gowns with various embellishments, 50's elegance, A-line dresses, mermaid gowns, illusion straps, gowns with a hint of color or metallic hues, and lots of tulle.

A-line gowns feature a fitted bodice but begin to flow outward as it reaches the ground. Because the gown isn't as fitted around the hips, the style is flattering on women of practically every body shape.  With everything in full bloom, spring dresses with a hint of color are becoming popular. A subtle addition of color to a white or champagne gown could be done through a sash around the waist. Illusion sleeves or necklines feature a sheer fabric and are found commonly with halter style gowns.

Fabrics and Textures

Dresses weighted down by heavy crepes, matte satins and silks are lightening up to fabrics like taffeta and organza.  These airy fabrics are easy to layer and more comfortable for a gown worn for up to 10 hours.  And for brides having a summer wedding, donning a lighter fabric will ensure they're glowing - not sweaty and red-faced - on their wedding day.  Lace makes a comeback in the new season. The mermaid and slim A-line dresses are transformed, while long sleeves and low V-necklines appear reinvented. Lace appliques and over-embroideries add a rich dimension to any dress.

Accents and Details

Tiers are essential in up-coming bridal style, used throughout or simply on the skirt area. Differing tiers create unique looks; layers of small tulle ruffles create a feminine feel while square handkerchief flounces add a romantic flair. Contrasting materials and asymmetrical style are used to add interest to the dress. Asymmetric design is a modern take on historical bridal style. With unique angles, the asymmetrical look includes the one-shoulder dress, off-centre neckline and asymmetrical lines or draped layers on the skirt. Placed ruching and gathering on the skirt or bodice works well.


Modern brides are experimenting with color to tie their ensembles into the color scheme.  Adding a splash of color to the basic white gown remains popular through colorful sashes and applique details, or more dramatically through two-toned wedding gowns with a colored bodice against a white wedding dress or off-white skirt. Not just for the goth bride anymore, black showed up in all kinds of wedding dress details, from dainty bows and sashes to bolder, allover embellishments.

Major Trends

Slim is the silhouette of choice for the modern wedding dress - as sheaths, trumpets, and column wedding dresses ruled the runways (Kate Sherford, Pepe Botella, Francesca Pitera, Reem Acra).  Don't fret if you've always dreamed of donning a billowy ball gown, however, as this traditional style never goes out of style. The ball gown (Dolce Gabanna, Vera Wang) remains a favorite in bridal style, with full skirts and small, snug bodices. Corset detail, with the constructed cup or underwire, creates a piece with more foundation. The skirt consists of see-through fabrics or sheer overlay. The Grecian dress (Manuel Mota, Priscilla of Boston) creates chic and ethereal style. Dressed up or dressed down, the strapless and one-shoulder dress works well. The natural waist is emphasized with beaded belts and drapery and ruching for a more casual-chic Grecian look are equally elegant.

If classic Hollywood is your thing, and you like a bit of glamour in your dresses, then one that harkens back to the 50s silver screen era would be perfect for you. These types of dresses feature belted waistlines and hems that go all the way to the floor and sometimes beyond. A few, though, go only down to knees, but have a sheer layer of fabric overlaid to accentuate the legs and the hemline.

Not afraid to show a little leg, today's brides are embracing the tea-length and mini shift dresses that have become de rigueur in nearly every wedding dress designer's latest collections. The trend makes sense for destination weddings calling for laid back attire and brides opting to don a second dress for dancing the night away at the reception.

Corrective Lingerie the Sculptor of your Shapes

The news is not the corrective lingerie with the effect to make the shapes tighter and slimmer. When considering the images of women back in XIX-XX centuries, we can state some peculiarities typical to the woman silhouette, like the high bosom, thin waist, rounded thighs (or just the skirt creating this false impression). Recollecting the canons of women beauty which were far from the skinny shapes of some mature women, we realize that a lady looked shapely in one area and slim in the other thanks to the special lingerie.
