Well, its happened. We’ve fallen in love again, hard. Because we recently came across the designs of Eliza Jane Howell (actually designer Gill Harvey: the name is an homage to her grandmother) and we’re absolutely, crazily, 100% smitten with these incredible 1920s wedding dresses.
Wow. And hooray! This post is going to be a photo-heavy, vintage perfect, art deco explosion because there are just too many incredible gowns we need to show you. I tried to narrow it down some… but I failed. Sorry! (actually…NO I’M NOT. Please click for larger images, and enjoy!)
Claudette Colbert, perhaps now remembered best for her Academy Award-winning role in 1934’s It Happened One Night, was a prolific and talented actress in both screwball comedies like that Capra classic, and dramas such as Cecil B. DeMille’s Cleopatra.

Working steadily from the 1920s forward, on both stage and screen, Claudette Colbert’s unique features and singular talent helped make her an icon of the era, and one of the embodiments of 1930s Hollywood style.
