NEW YORK — A museum
show, a movie and a television
series have inspired new trends
in bridal fashions for 1983.
Gowns echoing costumes in
the Metropolitan Museum’s cur
rent “Belle Epoque” exhibition
from the Edwardian era (1890-
1914), “Chariots of Fire” and
“Brideshead Revisited” (1920s
and 1930s) are making mild in
roads into the popularity of the
full-skirted, tight-waisted tradi
tional wedding dress and the
“Princess Di” look, bridal
fashion experts say.
Whether or not the new looks
will have staying power remains
to be seen. At least one manufac
turer, Wally Wallace of New
York, says the Lady Di look is
dying after two seasons and the
Belle Epoque (Beautiful Epoch)
look is a flash in the pan.
“It’s a trend only for those
who hope it will be,” Wallace
said. “It’s not for the bride. She

As a Navy pilot
or flight officer, your
desk can be a sophis
ticated combination
of supersonic jet air
craft and advanced electronic equipment.
But you can handle it. Because Navy
flight training gives you the navigation,
aerodynamics and other technical
know-how you need.
In return, Navy aviation demands
something of you as an officer:
Your path to leadership starts with
officer training that’s among the most
demanding in the military. It’s intensive
leadership and professional schooling
combined with rigorous Navy flight
training. And it’s all geared to prepare
you and other college ,
graduates for the
unique challenge of
Navy aviation. The
program is tough but

No company can give you this kind of
leadership responsibility this fast. And
nothing beats the sheer excitement of
Navy flying.
The salary is exciting, too. Right
away, you’ll earn about $18,300 a year.
That’s better than the average corpora
tion will pay you just out of college.
And with regular Navy promotions and
other pay increases, your annual
salary will soar to $31,100 after four
years. That’s on top of a full package
of benefits and privileges.

wants a strictly traditional gown,
the old-fashioned look that has
been so strong since the 1960s.”
Another manufacturer, Lee
Fein, president of Bridal Cou
ture, sees the Belle Epoque as a
strong influence in upcoming
fall collections. He cited the Met
museum’s show as “the source.”
Fein said this was evidence of
the swiftness of the fashion
world to seize on a fresh styling.
The show, organized by fashion
czarina Diana Vreeland, has
been open only since December
Betty Deall, executive desig
ner for Bridal Originals in St.
Louis, says the Belle Epoque
look has already raised the neck
lines of many summer gowns
halfway up the neck, created a
bustle effect at the back of the
skirt and inspired fuller cathed
ral trains as long as five feet.
“It’s a beautiful feminine look
with lots of ruffles and a return
to crisp fabrics such as taffeta
and slipper satin,” said Miss
Deall. “It’s more important than
the dropped waist, unadorned
‘Chariots’ and ‘Brideshead’ look
with emphasis on the bateau
neckline. We’re seeing a glim
mer of the 1920s look but it’s
only been taken up by high
fashion houses and the gowns
tend to be very expensive.”
To Barbara Tober, editor of
Bride’s magazine, the blouson,
flapperish look of the ’20s is not
traditional enough for the taste
of most brides.
“It’s a minimal part of the
market,” she said. “But the Belle
Epoque look with its high neck
line, flounced sleeves and skirt
line, and the peplum or bustle
effect with a longer train has
much more impact.
“Even the lavender spectrum,
a favorite of the period, has lie-
come the most popular color for
bridesmaids’ gowns.”
The importance of lace to
Belle Epoque fashions was
noted by Suzy Taylor,]

Record number of couples
take big gamble in Vegas
United Press International
LAS VEGAS — While the re
cession has many gambling re
sorts singing the blues, couples
are coming to Las Vegas in re
cord numbers to try the biggest
gamble of all — marriage.
Last year was a banner year
for weddings in Las Vegas, says
Clark County clerk Loretta
Bowman. A total of 57,702 mar
riage licenses was issued by the
county in 1982, up from 56,510
in 1981 and eclipsing the pre
vious record of 57.14/ in 1980.
County officials say the peak
w'edding periods are early sum
