Swedish supermodel, Elsa Hosk captivated audiences as she graced the runway in a spectacular bridal gown by famed British label, Ralph & Russo at their Spring Summer 2019 collection Haute Couture show in Paris.
Australian design duo, Tamara Ralph and Michael Russo established the Ralph & Russo label in 2007, specializing in high fashion haute couture creations, ready-to-wear clothes, luxury goods, and fashion accessories. Headquartered in London, the label has gained a steady stream of high profile clientele from A-list celebrities to royalty from the likes of Angelina Jolie to the Duchess of Sussex, the former Meghan Markle.
The 54-piece collection included some bridal-worthy pieces from sexy white jumpsuits with crystalized cutouts to an exuberantly feathery asymmetric dress, fully beaded with clear crystals.
The “piece the resistance” of the collection was the finale bridal gown worn by Victoria’s Secret Angel, Elsa Hosk.
Gracefully maneuvering the curved runway, Elsa Hosk carried her off-white silk gazar gown with elegance and ease. The Ralph & Russo finale gown is always a highlight on the couture fashion week calendar and this year was no different by showcasing a low cut, off-the-shoulder gown with a hint of cleavage, an elaborate train; embellished with crystal stones, xilions (a patented faceting cut by Swarovski known for its high brilliance and intense light reflection) and tonal silk floss adorned with metal work.
Elsa looked even more ethereal with her subtle winged eyes, beautiful glowing skin, and a neat bridal bun. She wore a shimmering floral crown gathered on top of her head over a delicate floor-sweeping veil looking every inch, a princess bride.
