We can’t help but be captivated by Reem Acra’s fall 2011 “Picture Perfect” collection—another of our favorites from the recent New York bridal market. Inspired by “the leading ladies of iconic films … their strength of character stays with me,” as the designer told Weddings in Houston, speaking to us for an exclusive profile piece you’ll find in the upcoming January issue, Acra has created a filmography of bridal fashion with this collection.

Gowns include the deliriously romantic “Breakfast at Tiffanys,” with its contemporary fitted bodice and softly layered skirt, and the modern-mermaid-silhouetted “Pretty Woman,” featuring an exquisite halter neck and equally exquisite embroidery—a signature of Acra’s. Check out both gowns, on left and right above. We love how the designer accessorized models with cropped lace veils, some featuring oddly whimsical (but somehow sexy) animal ears. Along with sheer gloves and the palest-of-pink ribbon belts, the overall effect was mysterious and magical, and very, very beautiful.
