  • Miranda Kerr

    Inspired by the “iconic” gown worn by Grace Kelly at her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco, the Victoria's Secret Angel's Haute Couture Dior gown for her wedding to Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in LA was designed by Dior creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Appliquéd with lilies of the valley, Kerr’s satin dress was altogether a demure design: “A dress that fully covers you creates a sense of purity and mystery,” she said, referencing the high neckline and full-length sleeves of her Dior bridal gown. “I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian. But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back." Speaking of the design, Chiuri said: “She wanted something like a fairy tale, and she gave me this idea, to make a dress that was emotional and simple at the same time.”

Deacon pulled off an elegant dress that felt stately but not staid, classy but not stiflingly conventional. Constructed entirely of lace with a tulle-filled alternative train, it was teamed with a Stephen Jones pearl-studded veil, a Maidenhair Fern tiara and Manolo Blahnik shoes.

But it's so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that's going into the dress!" Of creating the gown, Galliano said, "She dared me to be John Galliano again. I couldn't pick up a pencil. It's been my creative rehab".

  • Princess Charlene of Monaco

    When Charlene Wittstock, former Olympic swimmer, became Her Serene Highness Princess Charlene of Monaco she wore a bespoke gown by Giorgio Armani. "The idea was to go for a completely modern look, without an obvious sense of nostalgia or revivalism," Armani exclusively told Vogue. "I felt this was appropriate given that there would inevitably be comparisons with Princess Grace, and though such comparisons are of course a sign of admiration, each person has their own individual and unique style, and style is an expression of the times." The dress took 2,500 hours to create, including 700 hours for the embroidery alone, and featured 40,000 Swarovski crystals, 20,000 mother of pearl teardrops and 30,000 stones in gold shades. The dress was made up of 50 metres of duchesse silk, and 80 metres of silk organza - and even the veil was a work of art, encompassing 20 metres of silk tulle taking 100 hours to embroider.
