A Touch of Noir

The traditional white wedding dress has been given a sophisticated and edgy makeover. Classy, sleek black belts and bows are the perfect adornment for the bride looking to change things up.

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa, used black accents to add a touch of charm and additional interest to the design duo's ethereal collection. channelling Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, dainty black ribbons were tied around the waist at their NY bridal presentation. Marchesa also used black piping to accentuate plunging necklines and even paired their gowns with black shoes for added contrast.

Highlighting both the elegant and unexpected, Reem Acra complemented beautiful silhouettes with dark belts, bows, gloves and more. Whilesome wedding gowns remained pretty and demure, others displayed a more come-hither feel, proving that a touch of black can work for almost any bridal style.

If time-honored white, feels a little. . . stale, a dramatic contrast can take your dress from ho hum to extraordinary!
