HERE IS A DESCRIPTION FROM VERA HERSELF:

Vera Wang’s updates, and I thought I’d share the Dinah gown (spring 2010) from her “Behind the Dress” Issue in case
you haven’t seen it! In it you’ll go into the mind of the very talented Vera who also gives some tips on how to
choose the dress.

Says Vera:
With this wedding dress, I sought to create fullness and lightness in the skirt by tucking the fabric into soft
layers. The result is a rich, cascading effect. I chose to offset the volume in the skirt with a fitted bodice. Lace
is quintessentially romantic. With Dinah, I have used it only on the bodice to add but not overpower.
In wedding fashion, I love to use ribbons, buttons, bows and blossoms to add whimsy and eccentricity. These design
elements introduce fantasy and establish an optimistic tone. For Dinah, I chose a bowed sash tied at the natural
waist of the wedding dress. The sash is in grosgrain, one of my signature fabrics (I named my first Vera Wang china
pattern Grosgrain in tribute).
While I have embraced color in my collections, I chose to design Dinah in white and ivory to underscore the innocence
that I believe this wedding dress conveys.
Keep in mind, a strapless neckline strikes the delicate balance between propriety and flirtation. Strapless is not
for every bride, however. When choosing a neckline for your wedding dress, consider weight, height, bone structure
and age. Select a neckline that is most flattering to you; don’t feel held to what is perceived to be sexy or in
fashion.

Bows add femininity and grace to any wedding dress. The size and placement of bows serve different purposes in
wedding fashion. On Dinah, the large bowed sash is a more dramatic statement. On other wedding dresses, I use small
bows to cover up hooks on a bustle. The bow detail on a wedding dress can be carried through other aspects of the
wedding, from the wedding invitation and bridesmaids’ dresses to the fastening on the backs of the chairs at the
reception.
The A-line shape is always elongating. I appreciate this silhouette for its versatility: In a fuller form, like here
with Dinah, the A-line can be extravagant without sacrificing slimness. In a more fitted form, it can be sleek and
sensual. On a wedding dress, the A-line can be dressy, or informal. Regardless of form and function, the A-line is
always a classic and refined choice.
