Fashion Gal Maureen Tokeson-Martin hits the runway for the latest designs of St. Pucchi!
Rani Totman, designer of St. Pucchi, incorporates sparkling jewels, delicate laces, classic bustles and feminine silhouettes to complete a fantasy look for every bride.

Rani has found that whether a bride is a celebrity or not, her wedding day is her day to live her dream. She advises women to follow their heart when they shop for a wedding dress.
Rani is not a stranger to the world of celebrity brides. She designed the wedding dress worn by Lisa Kudrow during the last season of Friends. Rani also designed a wedding dress for actress Tara Reid.
So what tips does Rani have for this seasonΓÇÖs flock of celebrity brides like Katie Perry and Hilary Duff? For Katie, who kissed Russell Brand and liked it, Rani envisions something a little cheeky to match KatieΓÇÖs sassy style, such as a gown with sequins and feathers. The look is fitted, edgy and definitely camera ready.
For Hilary, Rani suggested she opt for a strapless ball gown with a cathedral train, in an embossed fabric with a touch of lightness to give a ΓÇ£float on airΓÇ¥ feeling. Accessories should include heavy chunky jewelry.
For the second-time bride who has ΓÇ£been there and done whiteΓÇ¥ Rani suggests opting for color. Look for gowns in lilac, ecru and even metallics.
Ultimately, your wedding day is all about you and following your heart to bring your fantasy to life. ItΓÇÖs the day that you are the star and all eyes are on you.
After viewing the St. Pucchi collection, we can see that it will ring true to every woman, whether she is the girl next door or the celebrity on the red carpet.
