It also helps that the collection was shot by famed photography duo Inez & Vinoodh. But if there ever was a statement wedding dress, it would be from Wang.On the other hand, Elie Saab, another celebrated designer, successfully intermixes traditional style with modernity quite beautifully, resulting in wedding dresses that feel traditional and royal but also timeless.Ahead, see all the dreamiest wedding dresses from Bridal Fashion Week — from simple courthouse-style looks to the princess-worthy gowns you’ve always dreamed of.Read More from Yahoo Lifestyle: • How to look fashionable at Coachella when you’re not a celebrity  • Paris Jackson wears high-slit dress at event alongside ‘sexy sisters’ Paris and Nicky Hilton  • How real women feel about Target diversifying its beauty aisle Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

  • Vera Wang's latest bridal collection is full of French-inspired silhouettes

    Vera Wang has been America’s iconic bridal designer for decades, and at 68, she is still at the top of her game. For her Fall 2018 collection, Wang dictates a new style of wedding dresses inspired by 18th-century French dressing.The new collection features dresses with panniers, or side hoops, that help extend the width of the dress’s skirt — a popular trend seen throughout the 1600s and 1700s — though Wang’s version is not as dramatic as those worn back then.Both Chantilly and macramé lace were incorporated throughout the collection — on the bodices, sleeves, and skirts — embracing a slight bohemian style of bridal dressing. Dresses either fell loosely over the body like a slip dress or ballooned outward like a gown that Marie Antoinette might have worn in her day. In further playing off of the French style of dress, Wang exposed what would have remained hidden by French women underneath their garments. She designed silk corsets and peplum garters that are to be worn on the outside of the wedding dresses.The collection’s look book was shot entirely in black-and-white by famed fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier at the Jardin du Luxembourg in Paris. The hair on the models was left long, stringy, and undone-looking. Very little makeup was visible other than smoldering eyeliner and shadow.Click through the gallery above to see Vera Wang’s new collection and then shop similar dresses at a fraction of the cost. And if you’re looking for your own pannier to transform your own dress, we suggest checking out Etsy.Read more from Yahoo Lifestyle: • 23 dreamy dresses from Bridal Week to inspire your own wedding  • Celebrity couples who nailed their Halloween costumes  • Emily Ratajkowski shares revealing photo from MoroccoFollow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
