ICONIC BRIDES FROM PAST TO PRESENT: MELANIA TRUMP



Vogue had a monumental month in January of 2005. The magazine featured a bride on their cover the very first time in the magazines history. The lucky bride is Donald Trump’s beautiful wife, Melania Trump. Melania wore an extravagant gown by John Galliano. The unforgettable gown was decorated with a 13-foot train and a 16-foot veil. Melania asked her fashion advisor Andre Leon Talley, “how do I walk around in this?” Talley responded, “This is a heavy dress, Melania, so eat, drink, and be healthy or you will faint.”

Something Blue...



Blue and white is my absolute favorite color combination. Especially when there is a small blue accent on a crisp white wedding dress. 

Every bride knows that on her wedding day she must have Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed and Something Blue on for good luck. Here are some creative ways to incorporate blue into your wedding day. The various monograms stitched on the inside of the dresses are my favorites!

ICONIC BRIDES FROM PAST TO PRESENT: AUDREY HEPBURN



Audrey Hepburn is one of my absolute favorite actresses and style icons. She was the epitome of elegance and always carried herself with such grace and her wedding was no exception. On September 25, 1954 Audrey married her costar Mel Ferrer after meeting and falling in love on the set of Ondine. She wore an elegant tea-length dress by Balmain with chiffon sleeves and a simple collar.

ICONIC BRIDES FROM PAST TO PRESENT: JENNA BUSH HAGER

Jenna Bush Hager was married at the Bush Family Prairie Chapel Ranch in Crawford, Texas in 2008. With the beautiful Texas Hill Country as a backdrop this wedding looked like the most perfect southern soirée and the elegant embroidery on her short-trained Oscar de la Renta gown was the perfect touch.

ICONIC BRIDES FROM PAST TO PRESENT: KATE MOSS

                    

Kate Moss has been a fashion icon from the runway to the street for over 20 years. However, I have never seen her look more effortlessly beautiful than she did at her wedding to James Hince, the guitarist of the Kills.

The Great Gatsby inspired wedding was featured in the September 2011 issue of Vogue. The whimsical dress designed by John Galliano was a slim fit with sheer sleves and a delicate train. Galliano said that in designing her dress, "She dared me to be John Galliano again."
