Following the royal brides (Kate, Zara and Charlene), the rock royalty brides (Kate, Lily), the film royalty brides(Reese), we now await the reality tv royalty bride, the very beautiful Kim Kardashian. Kim is plighting her troth on Saturday to her beau, New Jersey Nets star Kris Humphries. And who else would America’s top reality tv star choose to  create her dress but the true queen of bridal couture Vera Wang?

Kim is one of the most beautiful women on TV at the moment, and there is no doubt she will make a stunning bride. But what sort of dress will she plump for? Could we look for clues in the dresses that Vera has created for other celebrity brides, including sister Khloe? Will Kim plump for a full skirt, or a fishtail skirt that would totally accentuate those curves. Vera is known for strapless designs, she used these in the dresses she designed for Victoria Beckham, Jessica Simpson, Alyssa Milano and Chelsea Clinton amongst others, so maybe Kim Will plump for this style.

So, Kim could go down what could be seen as the traditional Vera Wang route in a strapless dress with a  full skirt. But wedding dresses in 2011 have seen a move towards vintage styles that ark back to our marital past. Kate Middleton‘s dress was an echo of the dresses worn by Princess Margaret and Grace Kelly, whilst Lily Allen and Kate Moss looked to the 1920s for inspiration, particularly for their veils. Full,  lace sleeves are also becoming popular as they add princess elegance to the occasion. Vera Wang has been known to channel that particular kind of elegance, just look at the beautiful dresses she designed for Ivanka Trump and Jennifer Lopez.

I would love to see Kim step away from the traditional Ver Wang mode and wear something elegant. Fashion Police star Guilliana Rancic says that she likes to see Kim dressed like a ‘hoochie’, but I think it would be wonderful if Kim stepped outside her image for her big day.

For fashionista’s who fancy throwing on their glad rags and enjoying a cocktail as they shop, the Sex and the City 2 night at the Bank bar and grill in Cannock will be just the ticket. The first Sex and the City Night held in September was a great success, raising almost £1,700 to help disabled children. The follow-up event proves to have an even greater lure, with fragrances from the likes of Vera Wang, accessories, dresses, bags and shoes all on other. Items from D&G, DKNY, Roberto Cavalli and many high-end high street branches will be on offer. There are also half priced cocktails, and nibbles for those who build up an appetite when they shop, giving the night a party atmosphere.

The manager of the Bank Bar and Grill Alistair Payne say;-

“The first Sex and the City event was so successful and so many people were enthusiastic about it that we knew they’d want another event – so we’ve decided to put one on in December. This event – Sex and the City 2 – will have the same ‘girlie night’ format as the last event and there’ll be a chance to shop, have a drink, enjoy a bite to eat and socialise all at the same time. A fantastic combination that we hope will raise even more funds than the first event.”

NEWLIFE CEO Sheila Brown says;-

“I think everyone will agree that this was a great night and we’re so pleased that The Bank Bar and Lounge and Alastair Payne have decided to re-run the event. The amount they raised was a fantastic achievement and we are very grateful to everyone involved. We are expecting the next event to help us raise even more money to help disabled children.”
