fade
I have typically not loved "the fade effect". I tend to think that it looks a little like you waded thru a puddle... BUT, this dress caught my eye. I thought that it could be really pretty for a beach wedding. It's not something I would normally be drawn to, so this sort of surprised me. Although... I did love Gwen Stefani's dress, which had a similar white to pink fade. What do you think of the fade? Ok for the right event? Or just dirty looking?

it's pretty, but it also may be one of those things that you look back at one day and say, "what was i thinking?"

i think it coouuuld be pretty, but the colors are too dark. If it started and ending in a lighter shade, I think it would flow better with the white and look more elegant.

Oh dear :( Maybe it would be better in a different colour? The first thing that popped into my head is that it was unfortunately reminiscent of a used feminine hygiene product. A terrible thought, I know, but now I really can't past it...

The fade effect almost always reminds me of tie-dye (a look that thankfully Rests In Peace). But this dress is pretty for the fade look. But I don't think I would ever wear it. I do love the cut and the floral detail at the bust, however.

I adore Gwen Stefani's dress, but maybe this one would be better as a bridesmaid's dress instead of the wedding gown itself.

I love the cut of the dress and the flower, the fade... not so much.

I second exactly what holly p said! Love the cut and flower, but the fade is a little weird. I don't hate it though.

I am not normally a fade lover either, but I like this dress-with the right wedding designed around it, I think it could be pulled off nicely.

The actual term for this is: ombre'

Maybe in a different color. Although this color is gorgeous, the way in which it is presented... I believe someone else said it... a feminine hygiene product.

i love it. i personally would not wear it but i think on the right bride and body type it could definitely work.. i would love to see it in yellow or a pale blue as well.. i think those would be very pretty!

I typically don't like fade but I love this dress. I wouldn't wear it becuz of Stefani though.

I cringe at the thought of dip-dyed anything...but I love this I would wear it as my wedding dress minus the flower.

it's called ombre, people.

I think its perfect for a beach wedding, something low-key, yet formal. It could even be right for bridesmaids.

Remove the flower, and it's legit.

I agree. I'm also not the biggest fan of the fade dress but this one is striking. It difinatly looks great on this modle with her dark skin and features.
I like

I love it! Not as wedding dress though...but as a nice dress to wear at a chic beach party.

AmyKristen on 1:25 PM

LOVE IT! Love the flower, love the cut, love the color. I wouldn't wear it for my wedding just because I want all white, but I'd wear it for anything else! Adorable!

Someone could really rock it-
take the flower off, though. I totally rocked the black and white striped dress you had on your site from Tracy Reese for my rehearsal. So Gwen Stefani! thank you!
I work in fashion in Soho and love ombres- but I think it can be done better. What if the ombre what broken up in a weave and were less even? This could work for a lot of people- but maybe the color could be more subtle.

Its cool and fun looking but I wouldn't do it, I am a sucker for simplicity.

Jess on 4:35 PM

i know someone who wore this dress in blue for her wedding.

My friend is marrying into an indian family. The traditional indian wedding dress is red. She wants to go with a white dress but with red accents. This might be a neat way to bring the red into her dress.
