We can’t relay on statement ‘until death do us part’ when it comes to celebrity marriages, but what we can notice is that some wedding dresses are timeless, inspiring and fashionable.
When Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III, the wedding was named ‘Wedding of the Century’. Her elegant and high collar wedding gown, designed by Helen Rose, makes us still weak in the knees. Design of the dress was strictly guarded secret and it has never left the fitting room. Only person who had access to design and dress was Helen Rose itself. She worked on a dress for more than 6 weeks. More than a thousand seeds pearls are hand-sewn in a lace to make it truly worth for a princess. Grace Kelly’s wedding dress still amaze brides all around the world including the Kate Middleton, who had a very similar design of wedding gown.
Elizabeth’s dress was designed by Helen Rose and estimated to be worth about $75.000. Taylor divorced just eight months after the wedding, but we will always remember her first wedding dress. Most defining figures of her wedding gown are romantic lace top and sweeping satin skirt.
Lady Diana wore a dress designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel and it was described as dress that will enter in a history and inspire future brides. Her stunning gown, made in ivory silk, incorporated all details that royal wedding dress should have: the finest fabric, lace, bows, jewels and long and stunning train.
That her stunning gown set a standard for upcoming wedding dresses is evidenced by the fact that puffed sleeves and enormous skirt became popular requests.
Audrey Hepburn is considered as a fashion icon and her tea length wedding dress may be considered as one of the reasons for it. Her wedding dress had long sleeves, high neck and circle skirt, but Audrey looked elegant and classy at the same time.
Kate Middleton wore a wedding dress designed by Sarah Burton, creative director of fashion house Alexander McQueen. Design of her dress was a secret until she stepped out of the car on the way to Westminster Abbey. Kate decided to combine traditionally and modernity by choosing high neck which plunged into a deep V-shaped décolletage.
According to tradition, the bride must wear something new, something borrowed and something blue. Kate borrowed a Cartier tiara from the Queen and she had a blue ribbon sewn inside her wedding dress.
