Here Comes the Literary Bride. . .

Normally I'd run screaming from anything to do with the bridal industry, but the link to this blog post came through on an academic Virginia Woolf listserv that I subscribe to,and hey, if the professors are intrigued. . . The blogger and photographer - Carine's Bridal Atelier - covered the Spring 2011 Caroline Herrera Show which focused on bridal gowns inspired by famous women writers, artists, and singers.  The muses included Virginia Woolf,  Emily Dickinson, Edith Piaf, Frida Kahlo and Georgia O'Keefe.  My favourites were the Karen Blixen dress (on the right - love the hat!) and the Jane Austen dress (on the left). You can view the whole show here.
