Karl Lagerfeld’s wedding dress for Chanel Couture was daring and innovative not only because of it’s relaxed silhouette and semi-transparent hi-tech fabric, but also because he matched it with luxurious running shoes embellished with Massaro jewels that allegedly cost around $ 4000. He left us wondering if the boundary between couture and ready-to-wear became to blurry and irrelevant.
And while Lagerfeld combined evening glamour with urbanwear, Jean Paul Gaultier transformed a wedding gown into a butterfly-shaped bodysuit and a bride into a pin-up star dressed up in white lace, feathers and fishnet tights.
Giambattista Valli was subversive in his own way and while making super luxurious and colorful floor-length red carpet gowns adorned with flowers, his wedding dress was a 1960-s inspired mini cocktail dress with flower-shaped crystal embellishments and a pink bow.
Inspired by avant-garde art Raf Simons created a futuristic, asymmetrical wedding dress for Dior. It is strapless and embellished with white flowers and crystals, and the silk it is made from is so lightweight that it literally floats around the body.
Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad created big flamboyant dresses covered in hundreds of beautiful hand-stitched floral appliques, Donatella Versace designed a tight and revealing sexy gown adorned with pearls and crystals and Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccoli made a simple but adorable wedding dress from luxurious white lace.
