From the Runway: Claire Pettibone Fall 2013

We had a hunch. Last February, we predicted that floral crowns would be the next big bridal hair trend, and it seems now everywhere we look we see halos of lush blooms perched atop brides’ pretty little heads. (You’ll be seeing one such halo in the pages of our upcoming winter/spring issue!) And if Claire Pettibone’s new bridal collection is any indication, floral crowns won’t be wilting away anytime soon.

For her Fall 2013 runway show, Claire Pettibone sent models down a petal-strewn aisle, er, catwalk in her signature figure-hugging gowns (complete with lace details, sheer backs, ribbons, beading, and other embellishments) and lush, colorful floral crowns. We’ve had a crush on Claire Pettibone ever since we featured one of her romantic designs on the cover of our first issue. After seeing her latest collection, our adoration only grows stronger. Delight in the loveliness…
