These gowns prove that unembellished can be as striking and enigmatically eye catching as the most beautifully ornate gown. Didn't anyone ever tell you how rich and complex vanilla can actually be?
If this taffeta Alfred Angelo gown had existed when I got married, it might very well have been one of my top contenders. It has everything you could ask for: a flattering v-neckline, full rouched modified mermaid silhouette, sleeveless in style, and finished with a corseted back. And that's it! Nothing extra required because this gown is strong enough to stand on its own with no embellishment.

Here is another Alfred Angelo gown that is an ice cream dream. A strapless sweetheart neckline on a slim princess seamed bodice with waistband, and a full satin ball skirt. No lace or rouching, just clean lines everywhere.

Another great and minimalist gown, this Amsale is so clean it hurts. The amazing double scoop neckline is silky smooth, as is the gentle A-line skirt silhouette with a waist band that works amazingly well at cinching. It really doesn't need anything else.
