When trying to picture your dream wedding gown it is hard not to recall some legendary film scenes such as the one from “Sex and the City” when Carrie Bradshaw waited for Mr Big in her Vivienne Westwood dress. Sadly, it didn’t go down too well, but the dress was a showstopper. Inspired by film festival in Cannes this week we decided to pick our five favourite movie wedding dresses:
1. Audrey Hepburn, one of the greatest style icons of all times, initiated the tea length wedding gown trend when she wore that fabulous princess-like dress designed by Givenchy in the film “Funny Face” in 1957. It had a tight bodice and a full skirt with tulle overlay, while the veil was fastened with a big white bow. This outfit matches her personal style and she even wore a similar dress at her own wedding when she married Mel Ferrer.
2. The wedding gown Vivienne Leigh wore in the cult movie “Gone with the Wind” was designed by Walter Plunkett and featured huge puffed sleeves and a full skirt. It was embellished with satin leaf appliqués and accessorised with a long veil, white satin gloves and a pearl necklace.
3. Carrie Bradshaw’s dress from the "Sex and The City" movie created by Vivienne Westwood was very extravagant with a dramatic neckline and a big puffed skirt. Details included a blue feather attached to the veil and strong evening make-up gave it even more edge.
4. Our favourite dress from “Bride Wars” was the one worn by Kate Hudson. This dreamy gown was designed by Vera Wang and had a dropped waist, huge tulle skirt, embroidered bodice and a purple ribbon tied around the waist.
5. We waited forever to see the wedding of Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) in “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1”, and it didn’t disappoint! Chic and simple, Bella Swan wore a custom-designed Carolina Herrera gown which featured an open back with lace detailing.
6. The elegant and regal wedding gown designed by Gary Jones for Princess Mia in the movie “The Princess Diaries 2” is simply stunning. The off-the-shoulder long lace sleeves are perfect for a very traditional style wedding.
7. Delicate white gown Kirsten Dunst wore in Lars Von Trier’s film “Melancholia” was inspired by Shakespeare’s Ophelia and designed by Manon Rasmussen. This fluttery dress features fabulous tulle draping and a delightful flower belt, while dramatic veil has a delicate lace edge.
