The extraordinary wedding dresses
Every woman wants to look special on her wedding day, and every bride has her own choice of the wedding dress. Here are some extraordinary wedding dresses that become inspiration for many brides.
In her second marriage, Reese wore pink wedding dress of Monique Lhuillier design. The dress consisted of lace corset, ribbon, and tulle skirt A-line model. Reese looked more beautiful with classic Jimmy Choo sandal platforms on her feet.
Carolyn Bassette Kennedy
If many brides choose super long wedding veils, Carolyn preferred to choose a simple straight silk dress from her best friend, Narcisco Rodriguez. She combined the dress with white gloves, red lips and simple hair bun. Simplicity is perfection.
Lady Diana’s wedding dress was like a wedding dress in the fairy tale. A fairy tale wedding dress with detail puffed sleeves, lace neckline, and extra long wedding dress tail, about 762 cm! There were 10.000 pearls pinned on that silk taffeta dress, with the lace design of Elizabeth and David Emanuel. In addition, Lady Diana also wore over 8 meters veil.
Dita Von Teese
This burlesque star chose purple wedding dress of Vivienne Westwood when she married the rock star Marilyn Manson. Dita combined the dress with a matching hat and lipstick. Maybe it wasn’t a common choice of wedding dress, but the purple color looked fantastic on her skin.
This wedding dress was one of the most widely imitated by brides because its design was classic and timeless. This Helen Rose gown design, the wardrobe designer of MGM, was pretty minimalist but made from special materials, such as Valenciennes rose point lace, 25 yards silk taffeta, and 98 yards of veil that’s embroidered with the details of bird designs and thousands of beautiful pearls.
Who could forget Gwen Stefanie’s wedding dress accented with pink dye by John Galliano for Christian Dior. The dress didn’t have complicated lace detail, but the silhouette was amazing. This dress now can be seen at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.
Lauren Davis Santo Domingo
When she was married to billionaire from Columbia, Andrés Santo Domingo, Lauren asked her good friend, Olivier Theyskens of Nina Ricci, to make a spectacular wedding gown. Her dress was made of 60 meters of jacquard silk with peony flower details, sewn one by one in the entire dress. At the blessing in church, Lauren was wearing a long robe with detail vintage lace, silver embroidery and feathers. This dress took 1200 hours plus 800 hours for the embroidery details.
Melania Knauss Trump
This latest Mrs. Trump was wearing haute couture wedding dress of Christian Dior’s collection cost U.S. $ 100,000. The dress was decorated with 1.500 white colored crystals, sewn one by one by hand, and also pearls. It has 395 cm tail with 500 cm veil, so don’t be surprised if the weight of this dress more than 25 kg. For the first dance, Melania wore a simpler gown by Vera Wang.
Victoria ‘Plum’ Sykes
Plum actually wanted avant garde wedding dress but McQueen precisely made a very chic and traditional gown for her. Plum said that McQueen never made a pattern for the gown; he just draped the material on Plum’s body and used marker to make some marks. As a result, corseted dress with a train that’s wrinkled using original techniques from the Victorian era, the body part was sprinkled with rose petals of silk that were made by hand. Really impressive!
Sarah Jessica Parker
Maybe because she wanted to look different from other brides, or indeed wanted to wear fashion’s most iconic Little Black Dress, Sarah Jessica Parker wore a black dress with spaghetti stripe top and ball gown skirt. The silhouette was similar to common wedding gowns, but wearing black to your wedding is not a good idea. SJP also regretted her choice and preferred to wear the proper white wedding gown for her wedding anniversary.
