Russian designer Rasida Lakoba has become a favorite destination for formal eveningwear that strikes a distinctly fresh and fun note. A case in point? Resort's bold hues (from orchid pink to zesty lime), exposed corsetry, and voluminous balloon sleeves—it's exactly what to wear when the dress code calls for "creative black tie."
Editor's Note: In-the-know brides often seek out the designer's white dresses for modern wedding or after-party looks. Find several options here, from sleek to sexy.
