Remember when you were a little girl and you imagined your dream wedding? You thought about who you would ask to be your bridesmaids (every girl in your fifth-grade class of course), who you would be marrying (Leonardo DiCaprio…duh!), what colors and flowers and flavor of cake you wanted…but most importantly you pictured the perfect dream dress. Last weekend we did an amazing shoot for Lovely, a new bridal shop in the West Village, and I was asked to model the beautiful dresses. Thanks to designers like Sarah Seven, Badgley Mischka, and Elizabeth Dye, I was able to live out my childhood fantasy! I went from wearing a fairytale princess ball gown to a gorgeous bohemian sheath dress to a sweet fifties inspired tea-length dress, imagining the wedding that would go with each dress (for some reason Leo was still standing at the end of the aisle!) It was truly an extraordinary experience!
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts go out to Lanie, the beautiful owner of the shop and an incredibly amazing person! She asked Tim to be the photographer and me to be the model and we could not have had a better team for this wonderful shoot. If you are in the New York area you MUST check out her shop! It is located on the sweetest little street in the West Village and you will feel like you are walking into a wonderland filled with whimsical gowns and ethereal hair accessories. I guarantee you won’t ever want to leave.
