Balancing Act

Photography by: Lindsey Shaun Photography

“Fashion has become really fun,” says local fashion stylist Penny Goodwin. This globetrotting trendsetter should know. Since 1969, Goodwin has directed fashion for advertising campaigns, editorial shoots, TV, runway and everything in between. “There’s an edge now that is present and it’s the innate balance—a yin and yang, so to speak—that is the most flattering.” From the runways to street fashion and, yes, into the wedding world, fashion is all about striking the right harmony from head to toe.

“Too much of one thing is too easy, too common,” Goodwin says. For your big day, she recommends testing the waters. “Showcase a piece that no one would guess you’d wear.” What better place to test Goodwin’s theory than at the St. Regis Deer Valley, a venue noted for its unique mix of rustic warmth and uber luxe. Through fit, fabric and cut, color, accessories, hair and makeup, a fashionable marriage of style can live happily ever after.

Modest +  Mysterious

For the Victorian or vixen, a bolero covers up top, yet still bares a racy neckline. Plus if you’re on white-dress overload, metallic gold provides a statement alternative.

Minimal +  Memorable

Jeweled cap sleeves and a sparkling slim belt add just enough volume to an otherwise quiet sheath.

Tease + Tea-length
