Um, There’s A Naked Wedding Dress & It’s Actually Insane
Who is Inbal Dror? Here’s Everything We Know About Meghan Markle’s Dress Designer
All eyes have been on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry since their engagement was announced last month. Although few details about the wedding have been released - save the date and venue - people have already started speculating about the ins and outs of the ceremony. And now, fans are going crazy over leaked sketches of wedding dress options from Israeli designer Inbal Dror. Dror confirmed yesterday that the royal family did contact her about possibly making Meghan's wedding dress. Naturally, this news had us eager to learn more about the up-and-coming designer. Here, we're revealing everything you need to know about Meghan's potential "fairy godmother" in the lead up to the amazing ceremony! Dror graduated from the prestigious Shenkar Fashion Academy in her home country and started her own line of bridal gowns in 2014. Since then, her looks have taken the bridal world by storm, appearing on countless Fashion Week runways and receiving coverage from the likes of Vogue. Love on top . . . . #inbaldror #inbaldrorofficial #inbaldrorbridal #bride #brides #bridal #bridetobe #bridedress #bridegown #white #beautiful #stunning #amazing #unique #unforgettable #wedding #weddinggown #weddingdress #weddingday #perfect #new #collection #nybfw #2018 A post shared by Inbal Dror (@inbaldrorofficial) on Nov 28, 2017 at 3:46am PST Her style is defined by elegant fabrics and form-fitting shapes. "I truly believe that a bride must, first and foremost, be comfortable with her dress choice," she told Brides in 2015. "A wedding is such a significant event in a woman's life, and it's how she feels wearing the dress that emphasizes her features, and can make her feel like the queen of the night!" While her designs often feature plunging necklines that trail to the bride's waist, Meghan's own sketches are a bit more conservative without losing Dror's trademark flair - like lace accents and cinching at the waist. Two of the options feature curve-hugging mermaid silhouettes, while the third option more closely mirrors Kate Middleton's dress with an A-line construction. This isn't the first time Dror's designs have been worn by the elite, however. Beyoncé stunned in a crocheted, lace-paneled dress from Dror's fall 2016 bridal runway show at the Grammys this past year. Naomi Watts is also a fan of the Isreali designer's stunning creations. If you're now eager to get your hands on one of these exquisite frocks (wedding or no wedding), you'll probably want to start saving now. Her dresses typically sell for between $8,000 and $10,000 - and there's no telling how much a royal version could cost! A girl can dream right?

5 Wedding Dress Trends That Are Out For 2017
Alfred Angelo Filed For Bankruptcy, And Brides Are Absolutely Freaking Out
Once you say "yes" to the wedding dress of your dreams, anything standing in the way of you wearing it down the aisle on your big day is just flat out inexcusable. Or, at least so we thought. Until now. After beloved bridal designer Alfred Angelo announced it was filing for bankruptcy and closing all stores, many brides are now left without wedding and bridesmaids dresses right before they're set to tie the knot. On July 16, Alfred Angelo posted a short, sweet, and to the point bankruptcy notice on its website, and announced that the company was closing all 62 locations. The notice listed contact information for brides to check on their order statuses, and the Florida-based brand said they would provide updates on pending orders on their website as soon as they received information. Sounds promising! They also never gave any specific information about what led to the bankruptcy. [Photo: Instagram] For brides and bridesmaids, the most stressful part of the situation is that they already paid good money for their dresses, and they might never get to actually see them. Alfred Angelo brides now have to struggle to find replacement gowns, which means dropping even more moolah. Not only this, but hundreds of employees also unexpectedly lost their jobs. Maggie Klaysen is the maid of honor in her best friend's wedding this October. She placed an order for her bridesmaid dress from Alfred Angelo in May, and the rest of the bridal party ordered theirs before her in March and April. On July 15, Klaysen says the bride received an email from Alfred Angelo at 2:30 p.m., saying that they were closing their doors for good at 8:00 p.m. that day, and that all customers had to come pick up their dresses by then if they were ready in the store. [Photo: Instagram] "I had many friends who had to leave work early and drive hours to go and pick up their dresses to get them in time," says Klaysen. "My dress wasn't in store yet, so we were kind of at a loss as to what that meant. The bride got ahold of someone and they told her my dress was already in manufacturing, so I was ok and it would be shipped out August 8." But, after a few days, Klayson received a claims notice from the company in the mail, which meant that she actually wouldn't get her dress, and she could file a claim to try to get her money back. She says she reached out to Alfred Angelo multiple times via both phone and email, and never got a clear response as to whether her dress was getting shipped to her or not. She's the only member of the bridal party without a dress. "Now, I'm kind of in a scramble trying to get a bridesmaid dress by October," says Klayson. [Photo: Instagram] So, what's a bride or bridesmaid to do in this situation? Many women sell their bridesmaid or wedding dresses, so brides impacted by the bankruptcy should check used clothing websites like Poshmark or even eBay. Klayson looked online to find used or returned Alfred Angelo dresses in her size and in the color she previously ordered, but she says it wasn't easy. The bride even considered getting Klayson a different color or style since she's the MOH, but Klayson says it's hard to pick a new color without seeing the dress in person. She eventually found a dress in a boutique in Virginia that matches the color of the bridal party dresses, but has a different style. It's still unclear whether her dress will actually come August 8, so she didn't want to risk not having a dress in time. She ended up having to pay for two bridesmaid dresses. [Photo: Instagram] It's not looking promising for Klayson's Alfred Angelo dress. The company's attorney, Patricia Redmond, said that dresses shipped after June 24 are allegedly stuck in a port in California, according to NBC. But, there is one silver lining. Certain retailers and boutiques are taking pity on brides stuck without a dress from the Alfred Angelo disaster. Klayson says she talked to David's Bridal, and they're offering 20-30 percent off for brides and bridesmaids who show their Alfred Angelo receipt. If you're a victim of this situation, stay positive, and remember that not all hope is lost! If you didn't receive your dress, we recommend that you follow up with the company repeatedly through their bankruptcy trustee, Margaret Smith, via email at [email protected] Smith has actually filed a motion for the company to resume certain business functions in order to help customers, according to the South Florida Business Journal. This motion also means that you can potentially ask your credit card carrier to remove the dress charge and refund you if you think your order won't be completed. Regardless, whatever happens, you're still going to look just as beautiful on your wedding day. [Photo: Shutterstock]

CONFIRMED: Jessica Biel Wore A Pink Giambattista Valli Wedding Dress
Update: A rep for Giambattista Valli just confirmed that Jessica Biel did in fact wear a gown, veil, shoes as well as 4 pre-wedding looks by the designer. The strapless gown of silk mousseline and silk organza consisted of a light pink floral motif and ruffles. The veil, which consists of Biel’s' heirloom pearls, was also created for her by Giambattista Valli. All women in the bridal party, including both the mother of the bride and mother of the groom wore Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gowns to the ceremony. Jessica wore four looks with shoes and clutches from the Giambattista Valli SS13 collection to events leading up to the ceremony. Us Weekly, stylist Bobbi Thomas and other news outlets are now reporting that Jessica Biel wore Giambattista Valli -- not Elie Saab as previously reported -- to wed Justin Timberlake last weekend. Biel, 30, wore a pink and white dress in a "princess-like silhouette" for the ceremony at Italy's posh Borgo Egnazia hotel, then switched in to a less formal dress for the reception. The former N'Sync'er and his groomsmen sported Tom Ford suits. Pink is having quite a moment for celebrity wedding dresses: Anne Hathaway wore a pink dress earlier this month, as did Reese Witherspoon last year. The color was also very popular at the Fall 2013 runway shows. According to further reports, the pink dress was just one of many non-traditional aspects of the wedding. During the reception, Timberlake, no stranger to a good love song, serenaded his bride with a tune off his new album. Questlove, who deejayed Amber Tamblyn's wedding recently, then leaked all those photos on Instagram, was entrusted to deejay the reception. Prior to the wedding, the Total Recall actress and her groom celebrated in Southern Italy for an entire week of events, finally surprising guests with a secret wedding ceremony on Friday evening. Guests didn't even know where exactly the ceremony would be, since they were first flown to Germany and then to Italy. If you love the idea of being pretty in pink like Jess and Anne, check our slideshow above so the best blush to pale pink gowns on the market. Not only did Jessica opt for a Giambattista Valli wedding day look, she wore 4 looks from his SS13 collection during the pre-wedding events leading up to the nuptials -- presumably for events like the rehearsal dinner. There are no photos yet, but here's what we'd style brides in from the collection: Giambattista Valli SS13 collection, courtesy of style.com.
