"Great Gatsby"-Inspired Wedding Dresses
Philip B. Crook, BRIDES
Before the onset of Depression-era austerity, women's fashion roared through the 1920s with a dynamic combination of androgyny and decadence. Spurred by a rebellion against corsets and full skirts from designers such as Coco Chanel, Jeanne Lanvin, and Jean Patou, waistlines dropped, busts flattened, and hemlines rose to shocking new heights for a look that came to define modern femininity and sex appeal. The motto for the Art Deco decade became "Anything Goes!"-a mantra expressed by everything from beaded flapper frocks to slinky evening dresses. See how designers made Old Hollywood feel new again for Spring 2013 in our slideshow of Deco-inspired wedding dresses.
