You don't always need jewels to make a big statement. Consider a gown with bold clean lines, crisp white fabric and expert tailoring for a chic, modern look. This look pairs well with slicked-back hair and a bold lip. While this style may be lacking in embellishments, the expert tailoring is sure to make this look sharp and bold. This is perfect for a city wedding, a chic downtown fête, or an art gallery. Here a few of our favorite modern wonders, from Amsale, Carolina Herrera, and Dennis Basso.
