Carolina Herrera

Jackie O once adviced women to dress “like a column”. I think what she was really calling for was a return to classicism in fashion, and the American designer who best exemplifies this is Carolina Herrera.

Her wedding dresses, in particular, evoke the order, proportion and symmentry that were the standards of the classical world.

These three here, although regal, remain approachable. Their classicism is tempered with a touch of whimsey and light-heartedness. They show the sure touch and confidence of a master, one who has been designing beautiful dresses for many years, and so is it any wonder that Jackie O’s own daughter Caroline, chose Herrera to design her wedding dress.
