Fabulously fulsome and the ultimate in big-day glamour, we showcase our favourite full skirts from Danielle Couture…
Gone are the days of the meringue. Rather sensibly – and about the same time we realised, with regret, that we were never going to be cast in a Marie Antoinette movie – we have abandoned the notion that the ‘skirts as wide as we are tall’ look is either practical or flattering. But we cannot, and will not, turn our backs on that magical, fairytale dream. There’s a princess in all of us. We may be guilty of keeping her well hidden but occasionally she surfaces – often when we share a fairytale wish with our daughters (or when we watch The Princess Bride…). We say: give her full voice! We shine a spotlight on the fabulously fulsome, yet twenty-first century concept of the princess look – our favourite full skirts from Danielle Couture…
This beautiful creation combines all the elements of on-trend fabulousness: capped-sleeves in lace over a sweetheart neckline in a sizzling-hot Bardot style, plus this decadent, cascading skirt in layers of soft tulle. What a statement gown!
Hermoine brings you a more romantic look with its classic V-shaped neckline, nipped-in bodice and shimmering skirts, cut for a softer layering effect. The perfect look for a classic English Rose theme.
For a more opulent look, we love the intricate beading on this bodice. The silver embroidery work will catch the light and add a bit of dazzle, and the sheer panel neckline keeps this fairytale look fresh and modern.
Emilia positively exudes old-school Hollywood glamour and we love it! Elongating and flattering your silhouette are these vertical sequin detailing, and we love the subtle bow at the waist too!
Call off the search if you’re looking for lace and tulle (and lashings of both!). Perfect for the summer sunshine, we love the show-stopping detail here, and the feature straps update this sweetheart neckline – the perfect twenty-first century princess!
