All the must-know fashion news for brides

Flower girl
Fresh, intoxicatingly sweet and vibrant, Jo Malone’s new scent, Wild Bluebell, will fill the air with romance on your wedding day. Pretty and whimsical, the essence of an English summer bluebell is tinged with lily of the valley, jasmine, white amber and musk for a hint of wickedness. Either burn the candle in your dressing room to relax you as you get ready or soften your skin with the delicate moisturising cream. Heavenly… From Dhs505 (Dhs255 for 30ml), available at Jo Malone, Mall of the Emirates.

Fountain of youth
There is skin, and there is Clarins skin – a skin that goes beyond extreme sensoriality. The new ‘White Plus HP’ range promises to reduce and refine those pesky pigments as soon as they appear. There’s a gentle brightening exfoliator, a brightening peel and a whitening repairing night cream that work together to ensure a flawless complexion - just what you need for that glow of wedded bliss. From Dhs128.

Straighten it out
Personally, we’ve forgotten the dark days of frizzy hair, of hours spent labouring with a hairdryer and brush in the quest for sleek locks. That was before ghd, possibly the world’s most effective ceramic-plated straighteners, came to save us. Their new Iconic Eras of Style limited edition collection repackages this classic to suit a number of different runway looks from 50’s glamour to 70’s boho chic and 80’s new wave. Each package comes with a Gold Classic styler, clutch bag, sectioning clip and step by step guide. From Dhs1,150 at Harvey Nichols.

Absolutely flawless
Foundation should always appear like a second skin, especially on your wedding day. Guerlain’s Lingerie de Peau does exactly that, creating an imperceptible, invisible and illuminating base, as delicately sheer as your bridal negligée. Using Bio-Fusion micro-mesh, the foundation binds to your skin and reflects your complexion, giving you a gorgeous all-day glow. From Dhs255.
