Today we live in the memory of those brides who made history, and whose garments we never forget (at least, I have saved their pictures as authentic relics). I invite you to take a walk through the past. Do you come with me ?
What was once the favorite designer of Jackie Kennedy, Oleg Cassini, gave life to the wedding dress of Gene Tierney, his wife -it could not be otherwise-. And he did it with yards and yards of lace that pronounced her curvaceous figure. Their hasty wedding in Las Vegas, forced Gene to wear it for the first time five years after their marriage, on the movie “The Razor’s Edge .”
Then came the time of Jackie Kennedy, who surprisingly opted for Ann Lowe to design a 50s style dress with boat neckline, bare shoulders and princess cut; for which 50 kilos of ivory silk taffeta were needed. Almost nothing!
The explosive Marilyn Monroe opted for a traditional white wedding dress and veil in her third marriage, something nobody expected after her second wedding, where she dressed in a coffee-colored suit with ermine collar, pencil skirt and peep toes.
Who do not remember a candid Audrey Hepburn dressed in Balmain with lantern sleeves, claudine collar, sash with back loop that marked her small waist and midi skirt with volume. Totally Audrey! In her second marriage, Audrey chose a simple candy pink dress designed by her friend Hubert de Givenchy. The handkerchief to match the dress completed the look.
The American Queen of Monaco, Grace Kelly, trust Helen Rose the most important dress of her life: a fitted long sleeve design, made of French lace with small buttons, ranging from the sash to mao collar, and a silk skirt with tulip silhouette. To attach the veil, she took a cap decorated with diamonds and pearls. A unique dress that, 56 years later, remains one of the most copied in history.
