Preparing for a wedding can be like living a childhood dream for some women, so the bridal looks showcased throughout the V Magazine 'Cruise to the Alter' editorial is not so far-fetched. As Refinery 29 puts it, "Bridal goes badass Barbie," in the studio photoshoot.

From puffy veils to elaborate curve-hugging gowns and perfectly blonde tresses, the looks are undeniably doll-like. Yet the V Magazine 'Cruise to the Alter' editorial focuses on more than just a resemblance to Barbie. It also hones in on "Resort’s Reinvention of Lace," as stated in the second part of its title. Models Manuela Frey, Soo Joo Park, Maria Loks, Irene Hiemstra, Linn Arviddson, Elisabeth Erm, Frida Aasen and Irina Kravchenko are dressed in Balmain, Lanvin, Michael Kors and vintage Alberta Ferretti.
