Carolina Herrera debuts her first bridal pant suit

Carolina Herrera gives Spring 2013 brides options.

The designer debuted her collection with her first ever bridal pant suit.

SOUNDBITE: Carolina Herrera, designer, saying:

"The first look of the show is a pant suit which I have never done before for a bride. But I think it's fun because it's totally different from what you're expecting for a bride to wear."

Inspired by a recent trip to a Cecil Beaton exhibit, Herrera called the line glamorous.

SOUNDBITE: Carolina Herrera, designer, saying:

"I have been a great admirer of Cecil Beaton all my life. I think he was the most amazing photographer and also he had so much glamour, and that's all about his photographer. Unbelievable. So they had an exhibition here in New York and another one in London. And I have all his books, of course. So the inspiration for this collection is more or less those beautiful portraits."

Dresses ranged from silky satins to strapless ball gowns, with detailed embroidery adding extra touches to some looks.

The veteran designer says bridal has never been about trends, saying each bride should be true to their personal style.

SOUNDBITE: Carolina Herrera, designer, saying:

"I think they should be sure what they want to wear. It's not what they are told to wear because they are the ones who have to feel well and they have to look radiant, and they have to feel confident."

And a detail not seen, but heard is Herrera's classic signature blue bow stitched into every waistband of each dress, which is next to a stitching of the bride's initials.
