WEDDING ROSES: Lela Rose’s newest alliance allows for some sun and fun. The New York-based designer has teamed up with the St. Regis Bahia Beach Resort to create a capsule collection of wedding gowns. Brides-to-be who plan to wed at the Puerto Rico hotel can choose from three styles that are meant to accent the leafy surroundings — an off-the-shoulder dress with floral detail, a gown with a sheer lace overlay and a fabric skirt and a third option with a hand embroidered bodice and buttons down the back.
Each wedding gown is meant to play up the luxe setting regardless if the nuptials will be exchanged indoors or out. Dresses start at $6,000, though the fee does not include alterations. As for Rose, she won’t get to enjoy the tropical escape until her schedule clears a bit.
