Darlings, here’s your pretty for the day: Vera Wang’s all-red bridal collection, for whores and jezebels.
Oh, we’re just teasing. Actually we love and support the movement to take the bridal look away from its paternalistic, judgmental, sex-phobic origins of labeling women as more worthy because they haven’t given up the goods yet. It’s an idea whose time has passed and needs to be put to rest permanently. Wear that red, we say. Besides, Vera’s looking at this from a cultural perspective, naming the collection “Mei Meng,” which means “beautiful dreams” in Chinese and references that culture’s own tradition of red as a wedding color.
Of course you know in the end, most of these dresses will be bought and sold in the traditional white.
