Top 10 PR Bryant Park Looks: 4, 3, 2
This breathtaking and unique wedding gown was so stunning that it may just have been the look that made the judges’ decision for them. With its body-hugging bodice and tiered, petal-pleated skirt, this dress moved like a dream in person and stunned the crowd into silence at Bryant Park. A modern take on the wedding gown that fools the eye into thinking it’s traditional, it is a perfect summation of Leanne’s aesthetic and skills.
No silent reaction on this one. The crowd erupted into applause when this dress came out and for good reason. It wasn’t just that it was dramatic, it was exuberant and fun and the kind of dress just begging for a martini and a party to go along with it. A dress that fairly screams “urban sophistication.” It’s a very basic gown made memorable by the incredible hand beading and chartreuse belt, with the patented Bennett wit of having the beads arranged in such a way as to give the illusion that they were “reflecting” the color of the belt.
We had a very tough time deciding where on the list this beautiful gown of antique gold lace should have gone. It almost made the number one spot, but in the end we decided on #2, albeit a very close #2. While part of us thinks it could have used some slight editing around the shoulders and neckline, the bottom line is, this was another dress that stunned the crowd into gasps when it came out. We cannot reiterate enough how pictures simply don’t do this dress justice. In person, it not only moves beautifully, but the light picks up the slight metallic sheen better, allowing everyone to see the incredible skill it took to put it together.
