Honeymoon destination: Bora Bora

Bora Bora is love at first sight. With Mount Otemanu towering over the island, a backdrop to the beautiful white-sand beaches and turquoise lagoon, Bora Bora has been described as majestic, romantic and the most beautiful island in the world. Luxurious resorts and spas with overwater bungalows and beach villas surround the island. One of the most romantic hotels is the St. Regis Bora Bora Hotel. Enjoy views of the island and hotel taken from The St. Regis Bora Bora.

Thursday’s Celebrity Inspiration: Catherine Zeta-Jones

Catherine Zeta Jones married Michael Douglas in an extravagant wedding at the New York Plaza hotel. With a 40-member Welsh choir singing, 20,000 cream-colored roses and a 10-tier vanilla-and-butter-cream cake covered with thousands of sugar flowers, it’s no wonder the wedding cost $1.5 million.

Catherine wore an ivory-beaded satin sheath gown by Christian Lacroix. Her six foot chantily lace train was tucked into a diamond tiara fom Fred Leighton.

Oscar de la Renta Bridal Spring 2013

Breathtaking is the first word that comes to mind when describing Oscar de la Renta’s Bridal Spring 2013 collection. We loved every single dress that came down the runway. His collection was elegant, decadent and timeless. We loved the fabric, the lace, the colors, the florals. We loved that the dresses weren’t as traditional with the typical strapless gown. His collection included sleeves, color both bold and pastels, even a cape tulle! A truly memorable collection and the work of a genius! Oscar bridal look 2 Oscar bridal look 4 Oscar bridal look 8 Oscar bridal look 9 Oscar bridal look 10 Oscar bridal look 11 Oscar bridal look 13 Oscar bridal look 14 Oscar bridal look 15 Oscar bridal look 17 Oscar bridal look 18 Oscar bridal look 20 Oscar bridal look 21 Oscar bridal look 27 Oscar bridal look 30 Oscar bridal look 31 Oscar bridal look 33

Thursday’s Celebrity Inspiration: Kate Moss

Kate Moss’s wedding in 2011 was inspired by the Great Gatsby. Her dress, designed by her dear friend Galliano, had a vintage feel to it. The ivory dress was slim cut with crystal beaded hem. She looked effortless and beautiful wearing her hair down accessorized with floral headband. Photographer Mario Testino photographed the wedding for Vogue. Photos are taken from Vogue US and Vogue UK.
