How to Find Your Wedding Dress Muse
"You definitely don't want to follow the Pinterest route. I think you should find a muse, you should find a reference, and you should stick to it. Look at history, look at iconic moments over time. You asked me what my favorite bridal looks are — Amal Clooney, Grace Kelly, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy. Gwen Stefani in pink! That was amazing. It had to be the perfect dress and the perfect person in order to encapsulate that moment. Like, [Gwen] could wear pink, but not everyone could pull that off. I really believe in doing your research and your homework, and finding a muse. When I work with my clients, I draw inspiration from all different moments in time. I draw inspiration from my peers, I draw inspiration from other celebrities, I draw inspiration from editorial tears; from old stuff, from new stuff, and from street style."
