Bridal Fashion Week kicked off last Thursday in New York City. That means designers, future brides and celebrities flocked into Manhattan to see the latest wedding styles from Oscar De La Renta, Marchesa, and of course, Vera Wang. Between the tulle and silk, there were a number of beauty looks, from the classic to the ethereal that stood out. I’m personally excited about the bohemian waves and braid wedding styles, which looked especially new. To see my favorite looks from the shows, click through to style notes, and prepare to be wowed. (But also be careful, these styles will have you hankering for a walk down the aisle.) –– Michelle Rotbart
Sarah Hyland ran off with the prize for the best fashion and beauty look at last night’s SAG Awards. Wearing a sophisticated yet youthful Vera Wang dress, the Modern Family star chose a sleek from the front contorted in the back version of the French twist hairstyle. The look is intricate and chic, offers lots of visual interest, and keeps all the hair off of the face and neck, so Sarah can show off her beautiful and delicate features.

It was just a matter of time until the festival trend appeared on the runway. Though we’ve seen it on the street and on every summer holiday this past season, festival hadn’t hit the catwalk hard until this past week. Our favorite take on the trend? The undone braids we saw within multiple designer collections. At Vera Wang, we loved the baby bohemian theme, pulled together with crafted, almost dread-lock like braids coming in from the under layers of models hair. And at Michael Kors, the beauty team paired messy textured braids with the feminine and classic silhouettes. So no matter if you’re rocking the neo-hippie look this season or are more minimalist, a little bit of braiding will tie your look together.
