Miss Westchester Teen
Miss Westchester 2015
Nadia Manginelli rocked a high-neck, full lace gown. The inner sweetheart neckline and knee length lining took this dress up a notch in a sexy way. Here are two ways to look like Miss Westchester.
Miss Hudson Valley 2015
April Maroshick chose a gorgeous crystal-decorated high neck line, attached sweetheart and low back gown. To achieve Miss Hudson Valley's look, try one of these.
Miss Hudson Valley Teen 2015
Once again congratulations everyone! I can't wait to see their fashion picks this season and most importantly, the positive impact these ladies will make in many lives this year.
This year there is a fun list of beautiful celebrities who have gotten engaged. One bride-to-be that I can't wait to see is Lauren Conrad. I know she's going to be gorgeous. According to her Instagram, we know that she's had her bachelorette party already so it's only a matter of time before the wedding photos surface. Until then let's suppose she is being Adorned By Luxe. This is how I'd dress her for her big day.
Client: Lauren Conrad Service: Red Carpet Styling Red Carpet Moment: Wedding-Bride Style: Soft, Chic, Glam
Lauren's soft and sweet with a flare wardrobe leads me to believe she wants an A-line dress with lace, v-neck or sweetheart neckline and a little pizazz. Here are my top picks:
1. Alvina Valenta
2. Augusta Jones
3. David Fielden
Next on the list would be a sleek dress made with silk, lace and/or sparkle. The neckline remains the same but I think she'd compromise a dropping neckline for a low back. Here are my picks:
4. Jim Hjelm
5. Maggie Sotero
6. Julie Vino
Fit then Flare
The third category of wedding gowns I'd choose for Lauren would be the mermaid/trumpet. She'd look fabulous in a mixture of fit and flare. Here are my picks:
7. Danielle Caprese
8. Tony Ward
Last but not least, I can't forget to give her options of feeling like a princess. Here are my picks:
9. Hayley Paige
10. Le Spose Di Gio

Your Glamour Stylist Luxe LeBlanc
I thought it befitting to start off our new segment "Luxe's Wedding Wednesdays" as my first wedding anniversary approaches this Friday. I cannot believe it's been a year already! What was I doing this time last year? Counting down, with only two days remaining, I was freaking out with excitement and couldn't wait for my big day. Aside from marrying the love of my life, as a stylist, I wanted to see how the entire look would come together. Everyone looked gorgeous but not to toot my own horn, I took the cake. My vision of being a romantic-vintage glamorous bride came to life. Here's how I styled myself.
My gown was by Oleg Cassini of David's Bridal. I am pear-shaped, smaller on top and bigger on the bottom, (or as I like to say "my hips don't lie") so I chose a trumpet/ mermaid gown to show off my curves. I always thought I would wear a sweetheart neckline but I loved this simple strapless. The lace overlay helped achieve my vintage look and I loved that it was subtle. Flowers were never really my favorite but the delicate crystal floral details on my gown were perfect.
These babies were by Enzo Angiolini. I know gray is not a traditional bridal color for a shoe but it's one of my favorite colors. I'm petite, so the extra inches were just right for my gown plus these shoes were very comfortable! Sold! Oh yeah, and don't forget the glitz from the crystals that looked like broken glass. Simply amazing combo for this glamour girl.
My jewels were hand picked from the Luxe LeBlanc Boutique, (currently available by appointment only and will be online in 2015). I chose a pearl and Swarovski crystal combination to go with the vintage glam theme. The crystals were clear to match the crystals on the gown as opposed to my favorite iridescent crystals that capture different rays of color.
Shop my look below. I've pulled some romantic trumpet/mermaid wedding gowns for the brides-to-be or lovers of wedding gowns. Various designers are included but Oleg Cassini is featured in case you were looking for a similar design to my dress. I know I never get tired of surfing through bridal gowns. Enjoy.
