Lauren Bush on a Mission

High profile weddings seem to be having the biggest moment of any trend this season and the theme continues with the nuptials of first niece Lauren Bush to the first son of Fashion, David Lauren.

 Lauren Bush, who has made a name for herself beyond her political surname for her exceptional, all-American good taste and beauty, is using her notoriety for good with her Feed Foundation.  The company’s mission is simple: create sustainable, eco-friendly and fashionable products that have a built in donation in the price.  Each product has a number so you can directly see where your donation is impacting impoverished and malnourished sections of the world.

This Feed 100 bag costs on $30 and provides 100 school meals for children in Rwanda.
If you can spend a little more, this reversible burlap Feed 2 bag feeds two children for the entire year through the United Nations World Food Programme.  All for just $100.
Store your cosmetics and sunscreen in this Feed Dopp Bag, which costs only $25 and benefits  United Nations World Food Programme’s Purchase for Progress (P4P) initiative, a program established to purchase food from local farmers to feed hungry people in the region.

The wedding, which took place in early September and the Lauren ranch in Colorado, featured quite the guest list toting some of the most influential names  in fashion and politics.  No pictures have been released of the event although the bride, who will be taking the name Lauren Bush Lauren, was said to have worn a custom Ralph Lauren dress.  Ralph Lauren, whose daughter Dylan married earlier this summer, clearly had weddings on the brain as he designed his latest collection, choosing a series of white and silver dresses to close the show.  Based on his latest designs, here are some picks I hope inspired LBL’s gown.

I love the idea of adding color to a wedding dress and this beautiful blush would be perfect for Lauren who is known in addition to her philanthropic efforts, for her style. 

 This metallic and feather blush dress is another winner, more of a party look than a traditional bridal gown, but still chic and timeless.

 I could most see her in this style; simple column gown with minimal accents around the neck which would be super flattering on her frame.

 Sleeves are big of late and to add on a pair like these would be an interesting way to incorporate the trend and still look young and fresh.

This might be a little more appropriate for a second dress, but if this silver stunner doesn’t have a white carpet moment it needs to have a red one.  There has been speculation that the wedding was themed and until we have photos to prove otherwise we will stay tuned for more and close with the October cover of Town & Country featuring the newlyweds.
