This group had the best use of embroidered details. Amy Poehler's had these great embroidered fringed pockets on her dress by Brian Rennie for Basler. My girl-crush Mindy Kaling wore a gorgeous plus face framing beaded neckline by Georges Chakra. Katrina Bowden had a lovely jeweled waist detail on her gown from Badgley Mischka.
I dubbed this group my bride-alternatives. I'm not saying they look like wedding dresses, but would look great for any bride seeking an unusual, but glam gown for walking down the aisle. Kerry Washington's Marchesa dress had big, appliqued flowers embroidered in an organic pattern. Julia Louis-Dreyfuss's beaded column by Monique Lhuillier made her tiny frame look statuesque. Claire Dane's beaded white dress from Armani Prive was like an icy princess fantasy that was feminine yet modern.
