Every season, brides from all over lust after the latest style trends for weddings even though oftentimes the looks simply seem unattainable. However, for 2013 brides, the good news is that this is no longer the case. Australian Vogue described the 2013 showings as ‘easy to achieve’ and explained that these re-creatable looks were all over the new season’s runways.
Slick Style with Chic Appeal
One of the most popular looks on the 2013 runways was slicked back hair with very natural makeup. This styling allows the veil to perfectly frame the face and it is so simple and elegant that any bride would feel like a princess. Vogue suggests that those brides who are not going to have a veil can still utilize this look through use of a hairpiece or a fascinator, which is a lacy headpiece. They also explained that the dramatic look of the slicked back styling can be softened by having a loose bun at the nape of your neck as opposed to a tight bun higher up on the head.
Accessorize to the Max
Another big showing on the runways was the use of plenty of bridal accessories. They add the perfect pop of sparkle or color to any bride’s look and allow each bride to choose something that truly speaks to who they are. Vogue explained that Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Reem Acra, and Christos all featured accessorized looks in their runway shows from simple headbands to large, dramatic hats.
Pale is Out
The one thing that was not seen in the spring and summer wedding collections was pale skin. In previous showings, pale skin with pink and peach undertones was the look to have, but according to Vogue the next two seasons are all about the sun-kissed bronze bride. This was seen in multiple runway shows, so you better get working on that tan.
Upper Lid Love
You will not find any dramatically smoky eyed models in the latest wedding trends because this year it is all about lining the upper lid. Vogue reported that at the Carolina Herrera and Badgley Mischka shows the models sported drastic-lined upper lids with no mascara or liner used on the bottom.
Applying Runway Looks
When you are explaining to your stylist or makeup artist what your vision is for your wedding, remember that not all of the looks detailed in Australian Vogue can be utilized together. Even fabulousness needs to be applied in moderation. Definitely keep an eye on what the each top stylist and makeup artist in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane, Australia, is doing and soon recreating these runway looks suited to your needs will be a breeze.
