Romona Keveza is not a name many Brits will recognise, although we should've caught up by now. She has dressed some of Hollywood's most beautiful women after all: Angelina Jolie, Penelope Cruz, Nicole Kidman and Sofia Vergara to name but a few.
Her two collections - the couture-focused Romona Keveza mainline and the lace-loving, heritage-reflecting Legends - have become increasingly popular as a result of her celebrity following. So popular in fact, that she has new (shiny, glitzy and very sophisticated) digs.
The address? The prestigious One Rockerfeller Plaza, The Penthouse. (Yes, Penthouse.)
Designed in collaboration with celebrity interior designer Mary McDonald, the atelier-style showroom is a chic arrangement of different shades of grey, offset by vintage brass tones and heavy sliding doors.
The dresses are, as ever, perfectly dreamy. Her Legend gowns draw clear references from Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn and Jackie Kennedy, each made beautifully modern with her exquisite finish and perfect fit.
Where Legends is soft and effortless, Romona Keveza (the mainline, not the designer) is fashion forward and modern. Here it comes down to one question: are you a goddess, or a princess?
There is no wrong answer, just a multitude of options where each choice is more beautiful than the last. A stardust lace resembling freshly fallen snow glistens as a ball gown whilst appliquéd floral lace and - most romantic of all - a pink champagne Chantilly embroidered ribbon lace gown offer the most perfect princess gowns of all time. But before you give in to fairytale dreams, the modern appeal of the goddess gowns demands attention. Liquid satin, criss-cross details and sexy cut-outs: this is the domain of the confident bride.
All perfect, each covetable and undeniably stylish. Thank goodness she is now stocked at Browns Bride!
