We usually see models in wedding dresses when they walk on runways, but strangely, not when they walk down the aisle! Brides-to-be can learn a lot of stylish techniques from fashion models. For example, what dress to choose for a summer wedding, or how to create an outfit with an elegant dress and bold sneakers. Below is everything about fashion solutions famous models have chosen for their weddings.
Ines de la Fressange
French style icon Ines de la Fressange married entrepreneur Luigi D'Urso in March 1990. For the ceremony, which took place in the Provincial municipality of Tarascon, the bride chose a short white straight-cut dress and a loose cream jacket. She mixed the elegant Yves Saint Laurent outfit with stylish details: a bright hat with a veil, white gloves, a gold bracelet, and stud earrings. Her sophisticated look is utterly timeless. It's still fashionable now!
Transparent lace dresses are one of the hottest trends of 2022. Victoria's Secret angel Shanina Sheik had a premonition of this trend back in 2018 when she married DJ Gregory Andrews. The wedding took place in the spring in the Bahamas, on the island of Eleuthera, which is owned by Lenny Kravitz, the groom's cousin. Before the altar, the Australian model appeared in a lace maxi dress with bare shoulders by Ralph and Russo and Aquazarra shoes. The neck was adorned with a massive Lorraine Schwartz necklace. As Shanina Shayk said later in one of the interviews, she wanted to look "simple and elegant". It's hard to call the outfit "simple," but the bride undoubtedly hit the 'elegant' mark.
American top model Erin Wasson and French restaurateur Bart Tassi tied the knot in July 2018. The ceremony took place at the Austin Baptist Church. As a girl who likes to stand out from the crowd, the bride chose a daring Vivienne Westwood intricate cut dress with hand-painted organza ruffles for her wedding. Later, the model told American Vogue magazine, "Vivienne Westwood is punk rock, so it was kind of not even a question. It really just resonated and felt very correct. I knew that it was going to be really unexpected—but yet, even with some of the more formal dresses that she does, there’s just something so perfectly off. She really understands a woman’s body, and I knew this was going to be a dress that was going to allow me to feel very much me."
Hailey and Justin Bieber registered their marriage back in 2018, but they took their time organizing the celebration. The official ceremony with guests took place only a year later, on September 30, 2019, at the Montage Palmetto Bluff Hotel in South Carolina. The wedding was private. There were no paparazzi and guests were not allowed to post photos on social media. Fortunately, Hailey published a few pictures on her Instagram.
The bride appeared in several dresses that won the fans' hearts. She chose the Vivienne Westwood mini dress for the rehearsal dinner. It was complemented with a silver necklace and shoes with organza bows. After the official ceremony, Hailey appeared in the long satin Vera Wang dress and white sneakers (brides who are afraid to wear heels on the wedding day take note). But the cherry on the cake was the Off-White floor-length lace gown with a long hem. The gown, designed by the famous Virgil Ablo, was completed with a veil embroidered with the phrase "Till death do us part". By the way, it became a real trend later on.
Italian model Vittoria Ceretti and DJ Matteo Milleri were among the very few people who dared to get married during the pandemic. The celebration took place on June 1, 2020, in Ibiza. It was an intimate ceremony, but that fact did not stop it from being atmospheric and stylish. The bride wore the Jacquemus gown, which was perfect for a summer wedding. See for yourself: the warm milky hue, the flowing fabric, and the thin straps are in perfect harmony with the seascape and the olive groves in the background.
