The Vera Wang Leda is from Vera Wang’s Luxe line. The Leda has endless layers of beautiful and feminine lace, giving the illusion that you are floating when you walk. The lace on this dress is really something else–I have never seen anything so beautiful in my life! It is airy and ethereal. I cannot stress enough just how beautiful the lace is. It is light and comfortable, and fits like a glove–ultra flattering!
I purchased this dress brand new in 2014 at the Erin Cole Couture Boutique in Newport Beach, CA.
From Vera Wang’s website:
Strapless mermaid floating lace gown over web lace
In Leda, every element comes together to express an Old World sense of refinement and beauty. From its creamy French vanilla color to its intricate, delicate, all-over tulip and rose lace, Leda has an unmistakable heirloom quality.
As with all my dresses this season, the heart and soul of the gown is the lace. With Leda, I wanted to give the dress a very three-dimensional, textural look. I achieved this effect with a overlay of tulip and rose lace on top of web lace, which almost looks like a netting. The web network is actually quite intricate, like a burst of foamy bubbles layered on top of one another. It’s airy and light, so it’s the ideal backdrop for the bold, floral lace.
Throughout Leda, there are soft, curvy lines. A wispy tulle modesty piece on the bodice gives the illusion of something floating on the skin, while the gradual flair of the mermaid skirt curves and hugs the body into a classic hourglass shape. I love this type of modified mermaid silhouette, because there’s still that gorgeous structure on top, but with all the romanticism of a full skirt.
The skirt is where the dress really comes to life, with a voluminous cage construction. Horsehair bands at the bottom of the skirt frame the outer shell of this cage like halos, allowing the fabric to bounce and trap the air and light, making the tulip and rose lace nearly luminescent. And then in the back, there’s this incredible piece of embroidery that sits on top of the cage – layers upon layers of bias-cut, tiered pieces of horsehair and tulle. It creates this embroidery that has a scalloped, tiered cascade effect. Leda is an incredible fusion of texture, volume, and movement.

I added a very slightly deepened sweetheart neckline (about 1 cm). The hemline was altered to fit a 5'7" height, although it can be let down to accommodate an extra few inches. The waist and bust were brought in to match my measurements, though the waist can be let out I believe. All alterations were done by Nazzy Nasiri, who is also a seamstress for the Vera Wang store.
Dress was professionally cleaned by Margaret's Cleaner in Newport Beach, CA; recommended for Vera Wang gowns by the Erin Cole Boutique.
