As we're sure you've seen by now, Ivanka Trump wore a Vera Wang dress with short lace sleeves for her wedding to Jared Kushner. The groom wore Brioni. Today, Cathy Horyn writes about a conversation with Vera Wang regarding her work with Ivanka to design the dress.
According to Wang, Ivanka liked the gown Grace Kelly wore to marry Prince Rainer of Monaco (which was made by the MGM costume designer) and asked for something that looked as regal and was covered in lace. Wang welcomed the opportunity to design a dress that wasn't "naked and very Hollywood" and used three layers of different kinds of lace, each pieced together by hand, to make the dress.
Horyn believes this might mark the beginning of a trend for more demurely dressed brides.
"Nothing would make me happier," said Wang. "I've been doing strapless dresses for 15 years. It's tiring."
Well, I personally followed the strapless trend when I got married nine years ago. But, I think a trend of alternative necklines would be refreshing.
What do you think? Do you think brides should follow the "regal" look of Grace Kelly and cover up a bit? Or, is a strapless just as classic?
