The celebs took to the red carpet last night for Glamour Awards 2015, rocking 5 trends seen on bridal fashion runways

1. Underwear on show

Alesha Dixon was often outshone during the live shows of this year’s Britain’s Got Talent by Amanda Holden, but last night her sheer fishtail dress was the gown that everyone talked about.

Underwear as bridal wear is a trend that emerged in the nineties and has turned up again on 2015/16 Bridal Fashion Week runways reflected in Vera Wang, Pronovias and Oscar de La Renta collections.

2. Shoulder draping

Gillian Anderson confidently rocked the new shoulder draping look at last night’s awards.

The romantic draped sleeve is a creative option for brides who want a sleeve but don’t want to look too covered up. Draping is also seen as an alternative to the traditional veil, this looks great flowing freely from the back of the neckline as you walk up the aisle.

3. Feathers

Model and fashion blogger Ella Catliff certainly knows her stuff when it comes to fashion, and she arrived at the awards sporting this stunning fluffy feathered dress with blue bow detail.

The bridal runways of 2014 were covered in a flurry of feathers and the style continues to dominate this year, from subtle feather touches to fully feather trains and skirts.

4. Plunging neckline

The plunging neckline is a MASSIVE trend at the moment! With not a hint of double-sided sticky tape on show or ‘accidental’ exposure taking place, Kate Hudson and Suki Waterhouse show us how this trend can be pulled off with sophistication.

Look to bridal wear designers J. Mendel, Reem Acra, Naeem Khan and Berta Bridal for wedding dress inspiration. Their 2016 collections were bursting with plunging neckline designs.

5. Victorian 

We adore lace here at WJ and are in love with Nicola Robert’s Victorian style lace gown.

The Victorian trend is reflect across bridal runways this year from the high necklines at Theia and Claire Pettibone, to the flare sleeves at Maggie Sottero and delicate pearl sleeves at Ines Di Santo it is clear that designers are seeking inspiration from old-world opulence.
