Mermaid wedding gowns - lovely to look at but hard to move around in on the dance floor. Unless you find one that flares out above the knee and is sometimes called "fit and flair." Galia Lahav is a Russian born designer you may already be familiar with if you were crazy about the dance costumes on season seven of "Dancing With The Stars." My big Irish heart belongs to The Empress Collection, an ethereal series of fit and flair gowns made with luxurious Italian silk fabrics and intricate French lace. This classic collection reflects both drama and comfort, and the silhouettes are sleek, slimming and sensual.
