Wedding dress or other (mine’s obviously “other”)! For years, I have been completely in love with Rosemary Clooney’s dress from her solo scene in White Christmas. Oh, how I dream of owning a dress just like that!

What a tough question! All my free time is spent with pretty dresses, so I don’t even know how to pick. I can say with certainty though that it must be a Worth dress from the very late 19th c or very early 20th c. The fabrics were so luxurious and exquisite, and the details were endless and so intricate. Such romantic dreams of gowns. Charles Frederick Worth is kind of like my god. I don’t know if I could possibly pick a favorite, but I have this one on hand and you can see how beautiful the fabric is. Plus it has one of my favorite features from their dresses in this period–the lace flutter sleeves, which I am getting on my own wedding dress!
But I don’t like that pic because you can’t see the wondrous colors they so often worked with. I think this may be an old, black and white pic of a dress with more color than that, but I can’t tell. It’s the only one available in the Costume Institute online image archives. Charles Frederick was all about the lush and regal hues, but Jean Philippe, his son, used more punchy colors and patterns (like this dream of a dress, which was sold at an auction, so these are all the pics circulating of it–BOO http://media.lasplash.com/1/doyle_coutureforacause_2005_4_001.jpg and http://www.metmuseum.org/Imageshare/ci/large/26.359a-b_front_CP4.jpg , a dress I find amazing because I LOVE it despite the fact that I typically hate chartreuse! Now THAT is the way to use that color). Both of them were incredible, forward-thinking men. If there were any possibility of bringing either back from the dead to make me a dress, I would in an instant dump my life’s savings into the project. Swoon.

When I opened this thread I thought i’m sure I have but couldn’t think. Then IT came to me… Julia Roberts’ red dress in pretty woman. My mum even made me a long red dress for my 17th birthday as I loved it so much and have ever since loved the colour red.

Did you need to comment on the fact that you hate it? I’m really careful on here of how I sound. Sorry for sounding rude and over dramatic like i’m taking it personally as it’s not even my dress but I feel you were a bit unnecessarily blunt and have shot me down in flames ;(

@tksjewelry: ME TOO! I bought my wedding dress because its silhouette was similar to Dior New Look.
I have a million dresses that I love and have a million folders with saved pictures. Some of my favorites were worn by Carrie in Sex and the City.
