A host of bridal gown styles star in new shows on Broadway, television and movies

Kristin Chenoweth as Lily Garland in “On the Twentieth Century”

Designer: William Ivey Long

The look: Vintage glamour in curve-kissing crepe-backed satin in arctic white with a dramatic plunging neckline, thin straps and a train.

Dress drama: “Kristin wears 4 1/2-inch heels for the wedding, her highest of the show,” says Long. Her art-deco tiara is studded with tiny diamonds and pearls.

The bride says: “I love the dress that William Ivey Long designed for the end of the show, which gets all of about 3 minutes of stage time,” says Chenoweth, “which is a shame, because it is truly a couture gown. I could wear this dress in any color on the red carpet.

“It skims the body perfectly, it has a deep back and it’s a 1930’s feel,” she adds. “The white sheer gloves that go all the way up past my elbow were made by the same place that makes all of the Queen’s gloves. And there is the traditional, humongous veil which is about as big as me.

“Jennifer Garner was at the show the other night, and she was like ‘I want that dress’ — for me, that says it all.”

Stylist says: “Nothing is more timeless — and yes, sexy — like a white silk sheath,” says Amanda Elser, fashion and beauty editor at The Knot wedding website. “And ever since Amal (Clooney) wore white gloves on the red carpet, we have a hunch they’ll be making a bridal comeback.”
