Vogue Australia fashion editor Gemma Keil clearly knew what she was doing when she selected her wedding dress. The bride, like many, chose a lace gown for her nuptials. It sounds traditional enough, but in execution, this unique Preen dress was far from average. When you look closely, you’ll see the sweet lace midi dress is sheer from the knees down and features side slits — all the better to dance in, and show off her bow-embellished Rene Caovilla heels.
What’s more, the dress comes with a ruffled side flourish and subtle cutout at the waist — just enough to flash a hint of skin. And still, if you were to glimpse the bride standing at the altar from behind, you’d get a much more modest look. The back of the gown features a solid cream-colored paneling, so it isn’t till she turns around that you appreciate the full impact of the sheer lace and slip of skin. How’s that for a wedding gown that manages to be playful, a bit sexy, and still modest all at once?
