As reported by UsMagazine.com, it looks like Kim Kardashian’s grandiose wedding to former Toronto Raptor Kris Humphries is about to get bigger. Although the details surrounding the celebration are hush hush, Kim did reveal that Vera Wang herself was going to create her gown. It comes as no surprise though, as Kim posted the following comment on her blog , “I am so excited to reveal that Vera Wang is my wedding dress designer. Vera has been a close family friend for a long time and we had talked about this moment for years, so when it came to picking my wedding dress designer she was the first person I thought of. No one designs gowns the way she does! I know that Vera can make my dream come true and create the most perfect gown for my special day.”
As we all know, Vera’s gowns range from pretty princess styles to stunning fitted gowns, but, knowing Kim’s style, there’s no doubt in our mind that her wedding day dress will be ultra-gorgeous, glamorous and very sexy. Like the Duchess of Cambridge, all we can do is speculate. In the meantime, why not take a look at other celebrity brides who also chose Vera for their special day? There’s tons! Honourable mentions go to Alicia Keys, Victoria Beckham, Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Aniston, Alyssa Milano, Avril Lavigne, Jessica Simpson. But, of all the leading ladies these three really hit the mark for us:
Looking every bit like an old-fashioned princess, Ivanka chose a gown similar to Vera’s Esther gown–an elegant creation covered in chantilly lace topped with a sheer tulle elbow-length sleeve. We loved that Ivanka went with a classic lace fabric. But our fave part was the chic transparent top–a beautiful alternative to a traditional shrug.
Not one to shy from the spotlight, we were wowed by Hilary’s decision to don a strapless mermaid sweetheart gown–very glam and stunning. “Hilary wanted ‘mermaid’. The dress was embellished by hand. That was full-on Hollywood couture glamour,” Vera explains. For those of you looking for a similar style, Vera’s Gemma dress is the exact cut with a more embellished train covered in glizty beading.
Walking down the aisle in a romantic ruffled gown, Chelsea was the epitome of a picture perfect bride. For a touch of glam, we loved that she wrapped her waist with a sparkly belt. For a similar look, try Vera’s Diana gown–a strapless sweetheart with a swirly frothy draped skirt.
