Now that the ladylike shapes of the 50s and 60s are back (really, did that sexy silhouette ever go away?!), we were inspired by this gorgeous gown from Isaac Mizrahi New York’s resort ’11 collection. The cinched waist and flirty peplum lends a dose of retro drama but the silver embroidery and black sash keeps it so 21st century modern. A perfect choice for brides who love it both ways.
