J. Crew Perfects the Mother-of-the-Bride Look
"There aren't many modern options for the mother of the bride," J.Crew's Head of Wedding Design Tom Mora pointed out at last night's grand opening of the label's new (and first-ever) Madison Avenue bridal boutique. That's why the brand made a point to have some great picks for mom in the midst of all the bridal bliss. "Don't forget—it's her Big Day too," Mora said. Displayed among the gorgeous wedding gowns and perfect bridesmaid dresses—most of which are exclusive to the store and could work for just about any event that calls for dressing up—were classy-cool looks for mom, including our favorite: a fitted tuxedo shirt/duchess satin skirt combo finished off with a bold jeweled necklace. And speaking of accessories, the store boasts exclusive jewelry from Mariam Haskell and Fenton/Fallon, flirty Cosabella lingerie and the most stunning head pieces you'll ever see from New York-based veil maker Leah C. And, of course, all the greatest hits from J.Crew's amazing online bridal boutique are available as well.
