Help us name this Celia Grace gown!
Are there any women in history or present day you are completely inspired by? If so, share their name and why they inspire you to possibly name this beautiful gown.
Celia Grace has just released its 2015 collection and they’ve asked us for help in naming one of their stunning new styles.
Last year we helped them name this short style dress, which ended up being named “Lucille” after Lucille Ball.
Read on to find out what the naming criteria is for the pretty gown below and how you can help name it!
Celia Grace connects women around the world so they can help each other – women in the US and Europe help seamstresses in India and Cambodia earn respect and a living wage so they can better themselves, their families, and their communities. Celia Grace seamstresses help brides have even more beautiful, joyful, and meaningful weddings.
By naming each dress after an inspiring woman, Celia Grace continues this cycle of building positive connections between women around the world. Last year’s dress names in include Amelia (Earhart, pilot), Rachel (Carson, environmentalist), Susan (B. Anthony, abolitionist), Eleanor (Roosevelt, humanitarian), Rosa (Parks, civil rights activist), Eileen (Collins, astronaut), and Marie (Curie, scientist).
The 2015 collection features fine silks and vintage-inspired laces, illusion necklines, keyhole backs and a few dresses that convert from long to short and two organically-dyed pink dresses.
What we need to do is brainstorm as many inspiring women as possible after whom this dress can be named. Public figures (past or present) are best but all suggestions are welcome.
The dress we are naming is just lovely, it’s vintage-inspired winding floral lace delicately floats over sumptuous, body hugging silk crepe. With cap sleeves and a wide open back this gown is both classic and dramatic. The overlapping v-neck and empire waist adorned with stunning beading create a flattering, feminine fit close to the body and softly flaring into a flute skirt. Made with ivory embroidered tulle and silk crepe.
There are so many women in history and modern day that this naming game should be no problem, and at the very least we can have a whole lot of fun with it.
Once again, I’ll start it off. I would name this dress Angelina, after Angelina Jolie. Now, say what you want about Jolie, her acting skills, her life choices, etc., but this woman knows how to turn something bad into something good.
For a long time she was misunderstood and, for good reason, she was disliked by a lot of people. But she kept on trudging promoting humanitarian causes and working with refugees as a Special Envoy and Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
I personally did not like her for a long time because of the choices she made in her personal life. But for her many selfless acts and continued pursuit of turning bad into good, she’s made me see her in a different light. Therefore I love the idea of naming this dress after her.
Now, your turn. Who would you name this dress after, and why?
