Jenna Leigh has designed sultry lingerie for some of hottest celebrities on the planet. Celebrities from Kim Kardashian to Kate Upton have been photographed in Jenna Leigh’s stylish lingerie. She has been designing intimates for brides for year and finally it’s HER turn! Jenna was married in November and, as most brides-to be, she searched for the perfect wedding dress. Lucky for her, she knew a fabulous lingerie designer to make sure what she has on underneath was JUST as special! Jenna’s designs feature ultra-chic style and stunning technical details, fused with the contemporary need for comfort and practicality which was perfect for the big day!
Launched in 2009, Jenna Leigh, the eponymous lingerie and intimates brand designed by Jenna Leigh, laces perfect, precise fit with high-fashion attitude, satisfying both daily indulgence and special occasion looks for the girl who doesn’t want to keep her lingerie under wraps. Jenna infuses her collection with the perfect balance of retro and current fashion, capturing that timeless, enviable glamour that only “it girls” possess. It was amazing to get a chance to ask her a few questions for all of the blushing brides out there.
Jenna I wanted to extend a congratulations from us on your pending nuptials. As a top notch designer what gorgeous pieces have you chosen to wear underneath it all for your special day?
I chose the Laos set for my own wedding night. Its a very delicate and feminine silhouette, but offers ample support. The color palette of this set is a beautiful blush, nude and white tone, and it’s made entirely from silk with intricate top-stitching detail. I also love the lace ruffle trim, which adds a romantic element.
Your designs are gorgeous and just have a timeless elegance about them. You said, “Lingerie is the first thing you put on and the last thing you take off, every single day. It sets the foundation for the way you look and feel, inspiring every emotion from confident to coquette.” What must brides keep in mind when choosing lingerie to give their special day that added touch?
Lingerie is part of the brides special day. When a bride gets dressed on their wedding day, they want everything from the inside out to look flawless. the skin, hair, lingerie, dress, shoes, jewels…it all matters! wear something comfortable because you will be in it for many hours. Make sure its something different then your everyday lingerie because you want to get excited to rip off the wedding gown to show there’s still a surprise underneath.
Brides are always searching for the perfect wedding dress, however, do you believe that there are certain pieces that are better suited for certain dress silhouettes?
Strapless – A strapless push up bra
Fitted – A plunge lace bra and thong bottoms will prevent lines from showing in the back area
Low Back – Leave the bra at home or have a seamstress build one into the dress
Halter – A racer back or halter bra
Lightweight fabric (as silk) – A slip over top of your fabulous lingerie. You won’t be able to see lines if it’s light and delicate
I simply adore your Vegas and your Gables collection. The amethyst and pale gray/lilac color pallets are amazing. What inspires you and what can brides and lingerie enthusiasts expect from your upcoming 2012 collection?
Thanks! the lilacs in the Vegas group were inspired from a recent trip I had to Napa Valley where the coloring of the flowers and grapes were mesmerizing to me. In my 2012 collection, we are using soft tones and fantastic laces. The laces are all very soft and feel great against the skin. We brought back rompers and nighties, in addition to new twists on our repeat faves like malawi and goa!
