When Kim Kardashian chose family friend Vera Wang to create her custom couture wedding gowns, she knew things would be picture perfect. What she didn’t know, however, was which of the three intricate gowns she would choose to wear for her walk down the aisl Wedding Dress
After months of insisting on the utmost secrecy on all things surrounding her wedding gown, even reportedly forcing Vera Wang’s staff to sign confidentiality agreements and then walking around in public with the designer in a totally inconspicuous outfit so no one could possibly notice them, Kim Kardashian made a surprise announcement: Vera Wang is making her dress! This is unsurprising for all of the above reasons, but also because Wang made Khloe Kardashian’s wedding dress last year, and is arguably the most famous bridal designer in the nation.
For the first dance, Kardashian went with something completely different — the gown that ended up being “my favorite,” she says — a sexier, Georgette mermaid dress with hand-pieced Chantilly lace appliqué on bodice. The skirt had hand-cut organza petals intermixed with Chantilly lace motifs and organza sprig embroidery.
And lastly, when it was time to party, Kardashian made her third and final change of the evening into a bias-cut crepe-back satin gown with v-neck and circle skirt. She accessorized all three looks with custom Lorraine Schwartz jewels.
Wang summed up the experience perfectly: “It was a wonderful process. The fact that she came to me for having a certain classicism mixed with modernity, I feel very honored.”
