Dresses for Jenna (Sadly, this Jenna isn't me)

This has been circling around all of the wedding blogs and I thought it made for a breezy little Sunday afternoon post. Jenna Bush is getting married (yeah, like the President's daughter) and Style Scoop posted some dress options. Apparently Women's Wear Daily decided to ask 12 different designers what they would design if they could be the one to create the dress.

1. Vera Wang

2. J. Mendel

3. Arnold Scaasi

4. Carlos Miele

5. Amsale

6. Carmen Marc Valvo

7. Angel Sanchez

8. Badgley Mischka

9. Nicole Miller

10. Lela Rose

11. Marc Bouwer

12. Oscar de la Renta

I think I like Vera Wang's the best. It kind of reminds me of the dress that Christian and Chris designed together for the "On Garde" challenge on Project Runway. Take away that giant shoulder eruption she is fighting against, and it looks pretty dang similar. And I like it.

Which is your favorite?

Colin happened to be sitting next to me when I opened this, so he likes the Carlos Miele the best. "It looks like a flowery tornado." I think I like the Amsale best of all, or the good, old-fashioned look of the Arnold Scaasi. But really, I prefer the designs from the blog you posted the other day: Stephanie James Couture.

Flowery Tornado is a perfect description of that dress. I liked the Scaasi too, it's so classic that she would never be criticized for wearing it 50 years from now.
