Stéphane Rolland is famous for his couture catwalk shows and most notably, for his dramatic finishing look: his bride.
She is never a traditional bride - but she is every inch a blushing bride in the sense that every season we are anxiously awaiting her arrival, nervously expecting her stunning look and excitedly elated to see her walk down the catwalk (or should we say aisle?)
"The wedding down needs to embody the essence of the collection, and as usual each season, I want the bride to be the climax of the show," said modern couturier Stéphane Rolland to Vogue.com. "I like adhering to my craft's traditions, and it is customary in haute couture that a bride appears gloriously at the finale."
Rolland's latest bride, draped in 45 meters of silk and wool jersey in a fiery red tone, had an added element of drama: modelling the dramatic gown was Yasmin Le Bon.
Inspired by the work of architect and artist Michel Deverne, the dress featured a lacquered metal adornment cascading down the front with 'a train worthy of a coronation.'
Previous brides include his burnt orange jumpsuit for spring/summer 2011, autumn/winter 2012's kimono-style coat and laser-cut plexiglass encrusted gown from spring/summer 2010.
