Spring 2013 Wedding Dress Trend: Portrait Backs
What’s one of the most prominent and pretty Spring 2013 wedding dress trends? Gorgeous bridal gowns with delicate portrait backs. Also known as illusion backs, these wedding dress designs have sheer or lace fabrics with elegant embellishments featured at the back, between neck and waist.
Fabric petals, beading, embroidery – all that loveliness pulls our eyes toward her beautiful portrait back style as the bride walks down the aisle. The Marchesa illusion back above looks so lovely above a fluffy layered tulle skirt.
Lela Rose portrait backs are sensuous visions of lace and tulle. Floral embroidery and crystal embellishments extend these gossamer backs down through low cut waistlines. We think these portrait backs are enchanting, especially worn with some of the latest wedding hairstyle trends of beautiful buns and side chignons.
Intricate portrait backs designed by Elizabeth Fillmore add glamour to slim and sexy silhouettes. Perfect for a warm weather wedding, we can see these light gowns in beach weddings paired with dainty barefoot sandals.
The intricate embroidery of portrait back gowns give elegant flow from dress front to dress back. Mark Zunino gives his dress above for Kleinfeld an almost bird-wing illusion back design, perfect for Spring 2013 bird wedding themes. Portrait backs from Reem Acra and Kenneth Pool show off a bride’s beautiful skin with sweet simplicity.
Jesus Peiro proves that stunning portrait back style can look amazing on a bridal gown with long sleeves. Here Peiro makes the illusion back detailing the main focus of this otherwise sleek and minimalist dress design. Both sparkling and tactile, this portrait back is extra romantic with flower adornments encircling the pretty buttons down her spine.
Colored wedding dresses with illusion backs are two Spring 2013 wedding trends in one! Black bridal gowns from Isaac Mizrahi for Kleinfeld (demure) and Ines Di Santo (daring) offer beautiful portrait backs for brides with various fashion tastes. The Vera Wang red wedding dress draws our attention across an open back with criss-cross fabric leading to a fluffy crimson shoulder bow.
