Not that champagne, silly. I’m talking about champagne (or sand or gold) gowns. Put me in white and I look like I’m dead. It’s sad, but true. Furthermore, I don’t tan and I look ridiculous with even the most realistic fake bakes. Surely, I’m not the only one. I don’t look particularly healthy in off-white shades, either.
What’s left? Champagne, gold, etc. And how do you know if a non-white gown (like the French taffeta number from Bonny shown above) is right for you? Just ignore the ferocious look of the model in the picture, first of all. Then consider your skin tone and undertones (thanks, RZA!). If you’ve been “blessed” with fair, yellow-tinted skin like I have, you’ll most likely look your best in warmer natural colors. Those with medium skin with yellow undertones also look great in sands and champagne.
