Opening Soon! 03 May to 15 March 2015
There is no excuse not to go to this fabulous exhibition, partly because it's on for quite some time, but also because it features such a huge array of amazing dresses! Highlights include the dip-dyed pink and ivory John Galliano-designed dress worn by Gwen Stefani at her wedding to Gavin Rossdale; and the glorious Vivienne Westwood dress worn by Dita Von Teese for her marriage to Marylin Manson. The exhibition doesn't just feature celebrities but also features historical figures - it spans 1775 to 2014 - and royalty including the Duchess of Cornwall's beautiful dove-grey silk dress designed by Anna Valentine, and worn with a Philip Treacy hat. It also features the cutting edge of the fashion world, including Kate Moss and Dazed and Confused fashion editor Katie Shillingford, who wore an incredible gothic creation by Gareth Pugh - we particularly loved the pink hair, and the bridesmaids wore black - check it out! We're going to this exhibition as soon as we possibly can but if you get there before us, let us know what you think...
Inspiration for 2015 Wedding dress trends
We absolutely love these...
On the back of our last blog about the V&A's forthcoming exhibition on wedding dresses, it suddenly got us thinking about all the amazing iconic wedding outfits that we have seen celebrities wearing over the years. A few of our favourites include Dita Von Teese's amazing purple Vivenne Westwood creation, when she married Marilyn Manson. Made us think of Scarlett O'Hara. Then there is Gwen Stefan's dress by John Galliano for Dior - we love the dip-dyed pink effect. Then there is the famous Yves St Laurent smoking jacket worn by Bianca Jagger, or Audrey Hepburn's sweet tea-length dress designed by Balmain. All of them a sheer joy - click the link to see images of these beautiful brides!
