“Yes, I do” but in style: the ten most iconic wedding dresses ever

“Yes, I do” but in style: the ten most iconic wedding dresses ever

I remember the grueling fitting of a friend, in the process of choose the white dress for the fateful day: hours and hours for the choice of the model, lunch breaks largely skipped to accommodate lace, to decide whether train yes or train noto sew here and unstitch there.

The wedding dress remains the dream of many, with that intrinsic charm that transcends epochs and styles, that something of a fairytale that disturbs the detachment of even the most cynical. If you are about to take the plunge (or, as in my case, you are the friend to whom the insidious style tips touch), a look at the celeb weddings. Clear; we probably wouldn’t have the same budget as actresses, models, crowned heads and first ladies, but at least we could get inspiration. There is a lot of material: by whom he chose the simplest wedding dress in the world (Carolyn Bessette)to those who just did not give up the comfort of dancers (Keira Knightley)passing through those who ventured abysmal necklines (Bianca Jagger) even on the most important day of all. Short journey among the beauties in white (but also in pale pink) enter the legend, aka the most iconic wedding dresses always worn by celebs.

Guessing who made Audrey Hepburn’s second wedding dress isn’t hard. For her marriage to the Italian psychiatrist Andrea Dotti, the American actress preferred soft pink to her white and Hubert de Givenchy, friend and costume designer of her most famous characters, satisfied her. In the short dress with a funnel neck there was everything: the sophisticated and carefree style of Hepburn, the spirit of the Sixties that shortened and synthesized the volumes. A wedding lesson that made history.

One could certainly not expect from her a very banal corolla overflowing with tulle. Faithful to her style even on her wedding day, Kate Moss had her friend John Galliano (who, moreover, took advantage of the moment as a stylistic redemption following a not exactly rosy period) tailor a dress that slipped into evident recall of the years Winds. Her veil was worn like a low hat, secured to the sides of the head by two flowers, while her dress was a play of vintage transparencies studded with a myriad of silver sequins. A little boho, a little rock, definitely alternative. In short, to Kate.

In its own way, one of the most copied white dresses of recent years was also alternative: the one created by Sarah Burton for Kate and William’s royal wedding was a majestic interweaving of ancient savoir-faire and contemporaneity. In satin and silk gazar, she had a doubled lace bodice, sewn using a technique called “Carrickmacross”, an ancient art, dated 1820. Even the skirt, draped in Cluny lace, was a clear Victorian reference to which it counterbalanced the modernity of the bustier which, while veiling shoulders and arms, opened vertigo on the décolleté. Real but perfectly up to date.

What a couple! Beautiful and unlucky, the style of Carolyn Bessette and John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr remains iconic even today. She, not surprisingly in advertising for Calvin Klein, was the emblem of nineties minimalism, he, first a lawyer then a journalist, went around New York in a suit and a baseball cap worn backwards. They would expect a wedding in grandeur and instead invite 40 people to the remote island of Cumberland, Georgia. For the occasion, Carolyn calls a friend not well known at the time to report: Narciso Rodriguez. For the future Mrs. Kennedy, the designer created the white dress par excellence symbol of effortless chic: a silk slip dress without frills, without frills, of a beauty elevated to the second.

Like a modern Cinderella, Keira Knightley went to the altar with the shrewd attitude of someone who doesn’t care about the solemnity of the big day. Banned from high heels and intrusive trains, the English actress wore a pair of powder-colored ballet flats that perfectly matched the strapless dress and pleated skirt. Despite the speculations that pointed to Knightley as a recycler of an old Rodarte outfit (which then, what harm would it be?), The whole ensemble was signed Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. To shelter from the sun of Provence (wedding location), dark Ray-Bans and go.

Photo that deserves mention almost only for a Keith Richards sitting behind the bride and groom who, apparently very bored, smokes a cigarette in complete tranquility. But we are not here for this and Mrs. Jagger’s white suit contributed a lot to the most rock wedding ever (in addition to the legendary guitarist of the Rolling Stones). Signed by Yves Saint Laurent, he had a lapel that left little to the imagination. Dress adverse to any form of wedding traditionalism as well as its accessories: very wide-brimmed hat and floral bracelet. Other years, other music.

The two in one. For the London wedding (yes, she did two, one also in Morocco) with James Cook, the model and socialite Poppy Delevigne went to the savings. It’s a joke, of course, because the dress – all embroidered with flowers and impalpable tulle – was a Chanel Haute Couture creation. Why waste time making a reception dress when you can just take off the skirt and stay in a sheath dress?

Couple that needs no introduction. The former Fluxus, as well as the most famous conceptual artist in history Yoko Ono, marries her John in white socks and sneakers. The wide-brimmed hat on her long black hair made her the epitome of the hippy bride. Here, no famous designers, no ultra-chic dresses for the reception. Only the Rock of Gibraltar as a backdrop for the newlyweds who hold the marriage certificate in their hands like any other lottery ticket.

If instead of the vintage car, you arrive at the wedding by bike, well then the dress must fit. This must have been the thought of Solange Knowles who in 2014 she darted through the streets of New Orleans in an immaculate jumpsuit by Stephane Rolland. Unconventional bridal look with a sexy touch ensured by a plunging neckline.

It closes with the most cited wedding dress ever (it even has a dedicated Wikipedia page). Made by MGM costume designer Helene Rose, Grace Kelly’s wedding dress for her nuptials to Prince Rainier III of Monaco was a true masterpiece of couture. A jubilation of pearls and lace that gave way to a conspicuous number of bridal copycats (back up, from Kate Middleton for example). But none have been like Grace anymore: discreet, elegant and refined. The bride of brides, always and forever.
