Elle King Explains How She Knew Her Wedding Dress Was the One After Appearing on Say Yes to the Dress

 

Our favorite pop rocker is officially getting married in style! Elle King stopped by famed NYC bridal salon Kleinfeld last July to appear on a special episode of Say Yes to the cocktail dresses. Naturally, she brought quite the posse with her: her mother, London King; cousin and bridesmaid Hannah; and bestie Andrew Bevan, who is a former Teen Vogue editor (and who will also be officiating her wedding), according to People. The "Ex's and Oh's" star got engaged to boyfriend Andrew "Fergie" Ferguson back in February last year while sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge, so obviously it was time she got dress shopping!

"People take months to find their wedding gown, their dress, and I knew that I wanted to try on a few styles—because I didn't know! So if you want the best, you go to the best," King told People in an interview. "I booked my appointment at Kleinfeld because once I set the date, my mom was like, 'You better get the appointment at Kleinfeld!' So I made the appointment, and I sent out the screenshot to all the women I know, and before I knew it, they were like, 'Do you wanna be on the show?' And I was like, 'Yeah!'"

The singer got right down to business when it was time for her bridal appointment, telling Randy and the other consultants the type of style she preferred. "Boho chic does sum up that kind of feel because I want to accentuate certain parts of my body and hide other parts of my body," she said on the show. Keeping this in mind, it's no wonder that her preferred silhouette was an A-line.

Randy chose a wide variety of options for the artist, from "poofy princess and traditional ball gown to glitzy mermaid and whimsical sheath," according to People. But all of these gowns paled in comparison to the one King described as "special" from the first second she laid eyes on it. "I tried on maybe six or seven gowns, but none of them mattered," she told the news site. "I saw it peeking out when [Randy] cleared away some dresses, and before it even hit my shoulders—it was like at my waist—I just knew. I have chills thinking about it. My mom was like, 'Baby, that's it.' I burst into ugly tears, and then we went out, and I said yes to the cheap cocktail dresses  came back in, and my mom ugly-cried, so I knew it was truly the One."

You can check out the not-yet-aired episode on March 4 to find out which gown she chose, or you can take a sneak peek of the episode here. The suspense is killing us!

Leaked audio advises liberals to ‘dress like conservatives’

 

You know someone’s hit a nerve when those attending GOP town halls start carrying signs reading, “Unpaid Protester,” and listing their ZIP codes to prove they are, indeed, constituents. Why do that, unless of course there were mounting suspicion that the overflow crowds at nearly every Republican town hall were organized and bussed in.

Not that they’re necessarily lying; as we’ve said before, being part of an organized protest doesn’t always entail getting paid — if the public is willing to organize under and abide by the instructions in the Indivisible Town Hall Reference Guide for free, all the better.

The Daily Caller on Monday reported on leaked audio revealing activists with anti-Trump group Indivisible helping coordinate an effort to manufacture a hostile environment at Sen. Bill Cassidy’s town hall in Louisiana Friday:

The audio, obtained by local radio station KPEL, reveals a coordinated effort to create the public impression that Cassidy’s support for Trump is unpopular with his constituents.

The activists split up into an “inside team” — tasked with occupying “as many seats as we can” and an “outside team,” whose job was to “give [the media] the coverage they want” before joining the others inside. Activists were instructed to cocktail dresses like conservatives and leave at home “any signifier that you’re a liberal” in order to blend in with constituents.

KPEL identified James Proctor, one voice heard on the recording, as the leader of Indivisible Acadiana, “a local branch of the national Indivisible organization, which has organized hostile Republican town halls all around the country.”

Indivisible describes itself as a group of former congressional staffers, and they’ve teamed up with other insiders like Robert Reich and his Inequality Media.

Deepa Reddy, the designer who curates clothes for women as old as 80

 

A shopping sojourn with Deepa Reddy was something her aunts really looked forward to. Nobody (sometimes not even they themselves) were as keen as Deepa was to find the right fit, the perfect motif, and the accessories to go with those motifs whenever they had to buy clothes for weddings and such. It was hard work and satisfaction was a rare guest.

But inspiration certainly turned up. “Here I was ever willing to go on shopping expeditions and look for the right clothes for my mother and aunts...but finding the right clothes was easier said than done,” says Deepa. That’s when she began to mull about “starting something herself” to cater to the designer needs of women of all ages. That ‘something’ turned out to be Open Trunk, a multi-designer online portal for women’s clothing, which Deepa started a few months ago.

Designer wear for all ages

Open Trunk, like the name suggests, is a ‘pitaara’ of textiles and designs. The portal, in a first of sorts, is providing a platform for over 40 designers from all over India to showcase their collections on one platform. Also, the designers have the space to launch portal-exclusive lines that will cater to women of all ages, with a special focus on those over 50 years.

"Our collections reflect the changing style trends among older women. It no longer means that once you hit 45 or 50, you have to stick to your home or step out only in heavy kanjeevarams, though there is nothing wrong in those," says Deepa. At Open Trunk, there are kanjeevarams too, apart from other seven yards silks; but there are also several variations such as the 'jacket over saree', long silk tunics, kurtas in rich colours like ochre, mustard and 'rani pink' with traditional mango motifs and Indo-western cut and style.

Ethnic weaves, handloom sarees, and kurtas are also a big part of the collection as are blouses, midi-cheap prom dresses, salwars, and the ubiquitous waistcoat. Happily enough, the website offers ‘style help’ for its customers who might be wary of designer stuff or might be trying it out for the first time. "Since we cater to all ages, our aim is to make it easy for the customers – we offer them suggestions according to their body shape and the kind of occasion they are looking to buy for," says Deepa. She has also got real women to model the collections and this certainly gives the whole enterprise a feeling of authenticity.

So what do older women look for? "Women are on the move; they are strong, they are individualistic and that is exactly what they want their clothes to reflect," believes Deepa. Hence, fabrics such as organza and georgette often make an appearance. These cool fabrics with their light, breezy texture translate into easy, contemporary wear. "Pair them with a light jadav earring and that's all you need to look elegant for an evening out," she says.

Older women are looking to wear salwars that do not hang on them; sarees that do not make them look like they are at a wedding – they are looking to experiment with Indo-western wear such as long tunics, jackets, and midi-prom dresses cheap but not many have recognised or understood their need, believes Deepa. She believes the USP of the portal, apart from its appeal to the older generation, lies in its combination of easy access and exclusivity. "You get to choose from collections by over 40 designers and yet each piece is handpicked and has no replica. We customise, of course, if the customer is looking for a particular size, but otherwise, we do not mass produce," she says.
