Wear This, Get Married Here // Golden Globes

It's another addition of my favorite feature, wear this, get married here, where I pick favorite looks from a recent red carpet event and match them to the wedding venue I imagine them in.  Today we are back in NYC.  

First up, Alicia Vikander in Louis Vuitton.  Wouldn't this modern, pretty gown look so sweet dancing the night away at Liberty Hall at The ACE Hotel?

Next up, Rooney Mara with a quirky Alexander McQueen gown.  I picture her venue to be hip and unexpected, like the Wythe Hotel.

FInally, I paired one of my favorite looks, Ms. Golden Globe, Corinne Foxx's beautiful illusion-detailed gown with magic of the cherry blossoms at the Brooklyn Botanical Garden.

Red Carpet to Wedding // Met Gala 2015

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.

Red Carpet to Wedding // Academy Awards 2015

Sunday was the biggest red carpet of the year, the Academy Awards, there were lots of stunning gowns on beautiful Hollywood stars.  I imagined these each of my favorite gowns in different New York City venues, styled perfectly to compliment their look.  

One of my very favorite dresses of the night, Emma Stone, in Elie Saab.  What a perfect alternative bridal gown to get hitched at 501 Union in Brooklyn.  

Chic and modern Naomi Watts in Armani Prive would fit right in at the Gramercy Park Hotel.

Over-the-top in Elie Saab, Jennifer Lopez would be the perfect bride to get married in the New York Public Library

A very classic and polished, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, in Zuhair Murad, and her man, in Dolce & Gabbana, would make for the perfect bride and groom in the Loeb Central Park Boathouse

And finally to compliment her beautiful crimson textured gown, Roseamund Pike in Givenchy Haute Couture would look stunning against a modern, red wedding at Andaz 5th Avenue.

Red Carpet to Wedding

Sunday night ushered in award season with the Golden Globes and of course, the red carpet that proceeded them.  I love imagining the beautiful starlets in their gorgeous gowns in different wedding settings.  Here's what I picture. 

Sienna Miller in Miu Miu looked perfect on the red carpet, and would would look just as stunning as a bride in front of a modern, yet rustic wedding celebration.

Anna Kendrick in Monique Lhuiller would look beautiful as a winter, garden bride.

Juilanne Moore in Givenchy Haute Couture belongs in a glamorous New Years Eve black-tie wedding.

Jennifer Lopez in Zuhair Murad would shine as a destination bride on an Italian lake. 

Salma Hayek in Alexander McQueen would look perfect at as a spring bride at the charming and famous Grand Hotel in Mackinac Island, in my home state, Michigan.
