Say Yes To The Dress

Aug 2, 2010Fashion

Cheslea Clinton's wedding dress caused more hoopla than this year's Oscars.

There has not been this much talk about a dress since J Lo wore that green, Versace scarf number. In case you have been under a rock, I am referring to Chelsea Clinton‘s Vera Wang number. The cover of today’s Women’s Wear Daily declares Chelsea’s Moment, but in truth, it is Vera Wang‘s. Miss Wang, known mostly for her wedding collections could not have asked for a better PR moment than the Clinton wedding. Her ready-to-wear collections are much more modern and edgy than her frothy wedding gowns. Though Vera receives a good amount of attention and editorial for her RTW, her recent collaboration with Kohl’s tells another story, namely she needed a cash injection for her company. No one sets out to do a down market collection…I don’t care what you say. The current phenomenon of major design houses doing capsule collections for a bargain basement stores is nothing that Coco Chanel or Yves Saint Laurent would ever sign on for. You can talk high-low dressing all you want….it would just not happen. And if someone tries to say that Coco would have loved to…well…OK then…prove it.

The dress that caused the biggest stir...second to Princess Di's birthday cake number.

What on Earth is this bolt of fabric that we were mesmerized by. Yikes.

This dress will live on in infamy.

Audrey Hepburn and Givenchy changed it all up.

Poor Alicia Keys...her Vera Wang dress went over with a no sizzle...just schnizzle.
