Miranda Kerr's wedding dress inspired by Grace Kelly
Supermodel Miranda Kerr's wedding day look was inspired by actress-turned-royal Grace Kelly.
Kerr wed Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in May (17) and walked down the aisle in a gown similar to the one Kelly wore when she married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956.
The former Victoria’s Secret Angel stunned in a custom-made long-sleeved dress created by Dior's artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri and a floral headpiece crafted by milliner Stephen Jones.
Photos of the 34-year-old's special day were shared on Vogue.com on Sunday (16Jul17).
"Honestly, I couldn't have imagined a more beautiful wedding dress," Kerr told the publication. "When I was young, my grandmother told me, 'Miranda, men are very visual. It's important to look good.' I was like, 'OK, Nan.'
“I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress. I thought, If she’s (Chiuri) up for it, I’m up for it.
“I’ve had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian. But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back. My greatest sources of inspiration have always been Grace, Audrey Hepburn, and my grandmother, who at 80 has an effortless chic: a nice pant, a white blouse, a scarf, a little heel.”
The brunette beauty's special day was held in the backyard of the Brentwood, California mansion she shares with Spiegel. The intimate ceremony was attended by less than 50 guests, including six-year-old Flynn, Kerr’s son with her ex-husband Orlando Bloom.
Famed fashion photographer Patrick Demarchelier snapped the newly married couple for their Vogue spread and Chiuri, who joined Dior as the label’s first-ever female creative director a year ago, spoke to the fashion glossy about how the dress design came about.
“She (Miranda) wanted something like a fairy tale,” she recalled. “And she gave me this idea, to make a dress that was emotional and simple at the same time.”
