Though Whitney Port is fully immersed in the planning of her spring nuptials to producer Tim Rosenman, the Whitney Eve designer had never tried on a wedding dress until arriving at our Los Angeles studios earlier this month. With racks full of gorgeous gowns at her disposal, Port immediately gravitated toward the unexpected silhouettes, specifically a matching top and skirt set from Tory Burch and a slinky number by Reformation not unlike the Calvin Klein slip dress she originally imagined for herself. “I’m definitely a more modern bride,” Port says. “I don’t feel like weddings need to be by the book.” It’s not surprising; while Port is a classic beauty, her fashion-forward sensibilities point to an unconventional bridal direction, which we love.
The bride-to-be talks to us about the dress of her dreams, wedding planning, and more in our exclusive shoot. Scroll down to see the full story, then head over to Byrdie.com for the inside scoop on her beauty looks.
