StyleFile # 38: Bride of the Silver Screen

Do you have a special movie and wish you could put a touch of it in your wedding? I came across this recent wedding layout of models wearing assorted hats and for fun I matched them to some favorite movies.

Based on a popular book, Zorro came out at least twice in movies. The poster above is from the silent film “The Mark of Zorro” with Douglas Fairbanks. Hiding her secret identity in a black mask is the bride wearing a gown by Enzoani.

Who can dance like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers in their movie “Top Hat?” Here the bride wears a black top hat and dress by Vera Wang in tribute to the dancing duo!

My son Curtis is discovering the joy of Charlie Chaplin in several of his silent movies including “Gold Rush.” If you haven’t yet seen one of Chaplin’s films, I encourage you to check them out at your local library. And to add a touch of Chaplin to a wedding gown by Stewart Parvin– a black bowler hat!

None of Elvis Presley‘s movies like “Blue Hawaii” are really Oscar-worthy, but if you love his campy music, it doesn’t matter! The bride wears a headband with a large tropical-inspired silk flower from Sylvia Fletcher and a dress by Lisa Gong.

We are all familiar with Charlton Heston‘s Moses in the film “Ten Commandments,” but not many have seen him in “The Greatest Show On Earth“- a story of circus performers. Jimmy Stewart plays a surprising role. A bride takes center ring in this dress from Pronovias.

Now considered one of the best western movies ever made- “The Searchers” is a gripping story of a man’s quest for revenge. When I first saw it, I was awed by John Wayne‘s portrayal. I think you will be too. An Indian head dress is a surprising addition to this bridal dress by Rosa Clara.

  1. Oh, this is so cool! The Zorro mask is so romantic looking.
    I wish I could say that I’m adventurous enough to wear a cowboy hat or something like that to my wedding…. but I’m not. But for the day-after photography?? Possibly.
