I have always thought that wedding dresses of the past with it's many laces, long trains and intricate details are beyond charming. I would have to say that Grace Kelly's tops them all.
Isn't it simply gorgeous?? I love the arm fitting lace sleeves, the empire waist, the tiny row of buttons (so chaste and delicate!) and the beaded juliette head dress. The only thing I would change is the skirt I guess. I personally think it's a little too stiff. The sketch of the dress is superb~ <3
There's been many Grace Kelly inspired wedding dresses, most notably worn by Kate Middleton recently. My sister likes it though I think it's too simple for my taste. The best in my opinion is Nicole Richie's. Frankly, I think I prefer hers to the original. When I first saw the photos I was like 'GASP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!' & swoon. Lol.
No flaws...nothing I would change about the dress! Love the fluffy ball gown! I also love how she could detach the skirt and it instantly becomes a slim fitting dress. Ingenious!
While I was browsing for the photos, I came across a couple of really cool alternative to veils. These would look really good with minimalist wedding dresses.
I want to ditch architecture and study wedding dress designs!
