4 Bespoke Bridal Looks from Urban Retreat
Are you ready to be wooed by stars of the screen, sirens and styles ready to grace Old Hollywood? Urban Retreat at Harrods are ready to sweep any bride-to-be off their glass slippered feet, with the hair and makeup that dreams are made of. GfB were treated to a peak at 4 uniquely styled bridal looks, magically created by advanced stylist Rosie Hunter, artistic director Tracey Gallagher and make-up artist Kimon Ioannis Lekkas. So, take a breath and get ready to be wowed by these bespoke looks, which take inspiration from vintage style icons and promise a perfect finish…
1. Breakfast at Tiffany’s
Go all Holly Golightly, circa Audrey Hepburn starring in Breakfast at Tiffany’s with its stylish vision of an elegant New York in the 1960s. This look takes Audrey’s signature up-do, spun into a top knot for the modern bride. A gorgeous take on the classic, this styling hints at the romance of dreamily window shopping down a boutique street, relaxing in a cocktail bar and iconically wearing a tiara to breakfast. You’ll be sure to dazzle with this inspired reworking of a fashionista favourite. The Urban Retreat team are experts at subtlety – with the make up for this look pared down, with a focus on natural beauty. We adore how they’ve achieved a youthful, dewy complexion by using just a touch of product, fresh-cheeked and wedding ready.
2. Grace Kelly
There’s no denying that Grace Kelly was the beauty of her age, turning from screen starlet to princess in the blink of an eye. This arresting look takes inspiration from her impeccable taste, styling and timeless elegance – promising a look that is both polished and feminine for your wedding day. Become a femme fatale with a slick, amped up chignon and glamorous hair accessory for just the right amount of intrigue… Moving an arched brow down to the face, don’t be afraid of just a little drama with a stunning just-bitten red lip, winged eye liner and fluttering lashes ready to bat. Urban Retreat have drawn on Sophia Loren and Marilyn Monroe for charm, polish and flawless skin. This look is bound to inspire confidence in any bride who’s ready to wow!
Ideal for a formal occasion, the french twist takes its cues from tradition, but, an exciting spin has been added to the classic by way of height and a low bun straight from the swinging 60s. You’ll be on top of your day with the polish of a sophisticated, graceful finish, which is distinguished by a modern, sleek feel to the styling of the look. Keeping it slick, the make up ups the glamour with a bronze dusted eye and dark lashes. When it comes to going all big-eyes, amplified lashes will make them truly pop! A pale peach lip give a nod to the 60s Twiggy-esque Mod and the overall effect is striking!
4. Old Hollywood
Finally, make waves with a deep-side parting, high-gloss and old-school, oscar worthy glamour. These vintage waves are perfectly polished for a pristine look taken straight from the Hollywood hills. The red carpet has been rolled out by a statement hair piece that’s ready to mark the occasion, glittering with all the dazzle you’d expect from a star-struck princess. Exude glamour with the radiance from within, brought out by just a hint of that coveted golden glow. Paired with soft, fluttery lashes, there’s no denying that this picture-perfect styling will make you the talk of the town!
