    Oscar-winning actress, Jennifer Lawrence, made a jaw-dropping appearance recently at a movie premiere in New York City. She wore a gray ball gown – a stunning creation by Christian Dior Couture. The romantic ball gown with a gray and white tulle skirt had a bridal look.  

    Indeed, more than one fashion commentator figured that this splendid dress with its subtle gray color, form-fitting bodice, and full skirt might be the start of a wedding trend. After all, the ball gown has always been popular with brides, and gorgeous gray seems to be the new trendy shade.

    With its dove gray and silk organza-draped ball gown style, “Isabella” from the Spring 2018 Collection by designer Monique Lhuillier seems to be proof of this latest trend in bridal attire.

    A current Jim Hjelm design – a gray wedding dress with A-line ball gown silhouette, strapless draped bodice, curved neckline, and chapel train – also reflects this popular style. 

    It’s all part of a return to timeless and regal fashions which exude elegance. As well, the new interest in gray gowns should not be surprising because an unexpected color can have a definite fashionable appeal.  

    Gray is also a close relative of silver – a color with variations that show up in the bridal party from mother-of-the-bride (or groom) outfits to bridesmaid dresses. Contemporary wedding wear is available in beautifully-crafted designs and luxurious fabrics for sophisticated and fashion-conscious women who prefer a balance between traditional and modern style.
