I Went to Bridal Week With a Celebrity Stylist, and Now I Know How to Find My Wedding Dress
Celebrity stylist Micaela Erlanger is a new bride-to-be, and boy, does she know her way around a designer studio. Micaela, who dresses the likes of Lupita Nyong'o, Meryl Streep, and Lucy Hale for red carpet events, wore a Lela Rose pantsuit for her own engagement party, which I loved. I knew I could trust her when it comes to all things bridal, so I accompanied her to the Carolina Herrera press preview to see the new Fall 2020 collection.
Micaela began by talking about designer Wes Gordon and his impact on the Carolina Herrera fashion house. She floated straight across the room to the dress on the mannequin. "Wes is really putting his footprint on Herrera, whether it be ready-to-wear or bridal, and you can see it through a dress like this, where you've got a black, sort of sister version of it from resort that just showed, and this is the bridal version," she said, proceeding to point out the similar details.
We delighted over each and every silhouette together — they were all stunning — and Micaela posed with the "Michaela" gown for a photo. How fitting! For a full hour, we discussed tips and tricks that Micaela recommends for brides or clients she's dressed for their own special day. We tapped specifically into the Carolina Herrera bride, of course. "I would say it's a very good club to be in," Carolina Herrera Communications Director Stephanie Castillo said to me. I couldn't help but agree. Perhaps with Micaela's useful pointers, I'll be heading down the path to my own bridal look soon.
