Paris Couture Week: Ralph & Russo, and Celia Kritharioti

Many of us will wear couture just once in our lives – on our wedding day. Paris Couture Week showcases the most exquisite dream wedding gowns, along with the styles that will influence wedding dresses to come.

Couture Week Ralph Russo Celia


Ralph & Russo

R & R always dominate the couture wedding dress scene at all fashion events, and this Spring/Summer 17 presentation is likewise stocked with wedding dresses.  Playing with prints on white, and geometric shapes, Ralph & Russo delivered beautiful, richly-embellished innovative design.  I hope that we see one of these dresses on the Oscar’s red carpet as well.









ETA: These 2 gowns were clear winners, as the top-left was worn by Hailee Steinfeld at the 2017 Oscars, and the top-right was worn by Jennifer Lopez at the 2017 Grammy Awards!




ETA: The top-left gown was worn by Priyanka Chopra at the 2017 Oscar Awards, and she looked amazing!





Celia Kritharioti


Also showing an army of wedding dresses this year was Greek designer Celia Kritharioti.  The lace-heavy presentation showed Celia’s dazzling talent with hand-sewn couture.  She created tons of beaded art pieces incorporating tassles, florals, and stripes.










Celia is a new addition to my Couture Week Reviews, and I look forward to seeing a lot more from her.  Do you like them?
There is still more to come from Couture Week, so check back!
