Carolina Herrera

I am such a huge admirer of Carolina Herrera. Be it her wedding gowns, her evening dresses or her legacy...to wear a Herrera is to wear a timeless, exquisite silhouette polished to perfection with feminine details.

above: How does she turn out such gorgeous wedding dresses year after year? These gowns from her '08 collection continue to highlight Herrera's sense of sophisticated romance.
