Welcome to another edition of one of my favorite features here on the blog, Red Carpet to Wedding, where I imagine gorgeous red carpet gowns as alternative wedding dresses. Today's post is, of course, about Monday's Met Gala, one of the coolest red carpet events of the year. Fashion's biggest stars get dolled up, often on-theme, this year's was "China Through the Looking Glass," have fun with clothes and take risks. The gowns I choose for this post don't necessarily reflect the theme, nor are they my picks for best dressed, (actually, you can see those here), but I think they would make stunning off-beat bridal gowns.
Anne Hathaway in a sleek gold Ralph Lauren gown would look amazing as a bride in an ornate, art deco-inspired wedding, like this Pittsburg art museum.
This one is kind of cheating, because Amal and George Clooney did get married in an Italian castle, but this crimson, layered, heavy dress by John Galliano is the perfect mix of old world and modern.
Keri Russell in a dark and moody feathered Altuzarra gown would look stunning as a bride in the dramatic McKittrick Hotel, home of the popular interactive play, Sleep No More.
