A beautiful trend this year is the backless gown. The gown itself sends a dramatic statement so your accessories and hairstyle should be simple and elegant to ensure your look is not overdone.
For example Ahna O’Reilly (star of the movie, The Help) wore a stunning backless dress to the recent Screen Actors’ Guild Awards. She kept her hair in a long, straight style and wore very little makeup. She looked incredible!
We have a wonderful selection of backless gowns at The Quintessential Bride. And we will be sure to help you determine what to wear for support under your gown – which can be a bit tricky to figure out!
What types of figures look best in backless? Many types look beautiful, but the extremely low back looks best on a body without any “love handles”. If your figure is a bit more generous, you should look for a dress that doesn’t swoop quite so low.
Several days before your gala event, you might want to splurge on a skincare treatment for your back – polish away any dull, dead skin. The soft, warm glow of your skin will enhance your look!
