Jenny Packham Bride Hollywood Style Silver Wedding Dress

Jenny Packham Silver DressThis silver wedding dress from Jenny Packham caught my eye in the latest edition of Cosmo Bride under a feature page they ran on Hollywood trends.  I guess there is a certain amount of movie star glamour in this design and the dress is certainly pushing a Beverly Hill price tag at £2550 (add an extra £650 for the feather wrap) but I cannot help thinking it looks a bit more Pinewood studios of the 1970’s than Hollywood chic for the new millennium.  To me it looks as though this bridal gown has been plucked from the costume room of the old Blake’s 7 or Doctor Who studios.  Both of which are making a revival at the moment so maybe my current fashion trends are sharing a distant parallel with Cosmo.  Wedding dress fashion is not really one of my strong points so perhaps I should leave the fashion articles to other contributors to this site in future.

After all, I have just discovered that Jenny Packham was honoured as Hollywood Style Designer 2006 and she has a regular design presence on the red carpets of Los Angelas with a string of celebrity Hollywood clientele including Keira Knightley, Eva Longoria, and Sarah Jessica Parker.  So, whilst I am comparing Jenny Packham to a costume designer on the set of a dodgy 70’s sci fi series, Vogue describe her as the “The queen of the red carpet gown’ and ‘One of London’s Most Successful Exports’.  What do they know ?
