Veils are so well, virginal. Jennifer Behr is the queen of the scene when it comes to hair fashion that takes it up a notch. Veil alternatives with a dash of vintage sensibility create modern solutions for the downtown bride who’s not going to be rocking a lacy white dress any time soon.
Mossy velvets, smoked crystals, pleated French lambskin, spider web lace, and Austrian crystals is hair fashion you can wear long after W-day….
Jennifer Behr creates a range of seductive headpieces – 21st century crowns – each one with its own appeal… crystals set in dark metal and hand-stitched to ethereal silk chiffons, braided ropes, slick patent leathers and tough studs. This season Jennifer artfully incorporates it all to pin back even the unruliest of locks. The collection is made by hand in her studio and within a network of small workshops in Brooklyn and Manhattan. This results in hair accessories carrying the soul of handwork, while remaining thoroughly modern in appearance.
“Jennifer Behr headpieces are every bride: an Anti-Bride, rocker bride, or princess bride. Any bride-to-be finds her dream headgear with Jennifer Behr’s wide array of styles in her rotating seasonal and bridal collections…”

I’ve been a fan of Jennifer Behr, former accessories designer for Frederic Fekkai ever since she put her exquisite hair jewelry on the web. I have worn her handiwork to some of our Anti-Bride and Destination I Do events, such as Operation Aisle Style at the W Hotel. I am an unabashed fan girl, watching her steady rise, and have always been a huge advocate of veil alternatives: hair pieces, jewelry, feathers and hats. Veils can be pretty and quaint, but lack the glam and drama quotient for me.
Jennifer offers a multitude of hair accoutrements in feathers, headbands, combs and tiaras. One particular style setter that can’t be ignored is Lady Gaga. When Jennifer sent me photos of her latest bit of handiwork, the Standing Lace Tiara, festooning The Gaga at the Rainforest Foundation Gala in NYC, I was smitten: it’s glam, with a shot of 40s, theatrical but not too much, modern, timeless and futuristic. It’s kind of Anti-Bride, Bladerunner, and bridal rock star, all rolled up into a stage-worthy, aisle style piece of headgear, what’s not to love?
So before you strap on that veil, let your fingers click their way to a fantasy world of feathers, leathers, and lace and channel the rock star that you are on W-day at Jennifer Behr.
Lady Gaga at the Rainforest Foundation Gala
Only May 13th, Lady Gaga performed with legendary musicians Elton John, Sting and Bruce Springsteen at the 21st Rainforest Foundation Gala at Carnegie Hall. The Rainforest Foundation helps “support indigenous peoples and traditional populations” of the rainforest as they fight to “conserve their land and defend their rights.”During her performance she dressed all in white and finished off her outfit with the Jennifer Behr Standing Lace Tiara.
