For her second bridal collection, Alberta Ferretti looked to the red carpet for inspiration. The Forever Bridal Collection contains 13 gowns, all named after starlets past and present. There’s something for just about any bride, whether you’re the dramatic Scarlett [Johansson], the elegant Claudia [Schiffer] or the sexy Michelle [Pfeiffer]. The collection, Ferretti says, marks a return to detail and tailoring. Each gown takes between 30 and 80 hours to create, a testament to the high-end fabric choices, beading and draping. There are also options for less-traditional brides, including the short Mia dress and the bohemian-inspired Nicole. AlbertaFerretti.com.
