7 of the Best Supermodel Wedding Dresses of All Time
Now you can turn your wedding into your own private catwalk with inspiration from these seven spectacular supermodel wedding dresses.
Two months after Coco Rocha married James Conran in a chateau in France, she finally tweeted a full-length photo of her wedding dress. Designed by her friend Zac Posen, the bespoke gown featured dramatic cuts of organza, tulle, and silk-crepe. It was classic and simple from the waist up but ended in an ultra-flared mermaid skirt with a tulle overlay. Gorgeous, and totally worth the wait!
Leave it to Kate Moss to pull off one of the most coveted couture looks. Her gown, created by controversial designer John Galliano, was a beautiful bias-cut slip dress with a 1920s and 30s vibe. The bodice was sheer and simple with an illusion neckline, while the skirt was an intricate web of gold beading, embroidering, and over 270,000 sequins. Kate kept up the vintage look by wearing a 1920s style cap veil with floral embroidery—another John Galliano creation.
Supermodel Lindsay Ellingson, who wed just a week before fellow Angel Behati Prinsloo, wore an ethereal dress by French designer Sophie Theallet. The stunning pure white gown had a plunging neckline and a romantic draped back with bow details. Lindsay kept the look simple with a classic chignon updo, small heart-shaped earrings, and a sparkly bracelet. Oh, and of course a huge smile! Her wedding to longtime love Sean Clayton was “the best day of her life.”
When Behati tied the knot to Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine, she wore a custom-made Marchesa dress inspired by the A/W 2011 collection. The bride is rumored to have spent 4 months working on the dress, which featured hand-embroidered blush silk with a tulle skirt, a sleek silhouette, thin spaghetti straps, and a low back. (Behati herself described it as “bohemian, very beachy, very me.”) To cap off the look, she wore a floor-length white silk tulle veil and custom-made white suede Louboutins.
The 20-minute ceremony took place at Flora Farms in Los Cabos, Mexico and was officiated by none other than Jonah Hill, Levine’s long-time best friend.
Swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen chose not one, but three Vera Wang gowns for her nuptials to John Legend. For the ceremony, she wore a strapless ivory ball gown with a cutout back and a full princess skirt. Her reception dress was also white and strapless but had a slimmer fit and a mermaid bottom with a small train. Chrissy changed yet again for the after party, and this time she went all out with a crimson mermaid gown with a skirt resembling rose petals.
Chrissy admits she couldn’t help but get carried away with bridal gowns. Every time she went in for a fitting, she came out with another dress!
Cindy Crawford doesn’t need a lot to look good. Case in point: Her 1998 nuptials to former model Rande Gerber. She wore a barely-there John Galliano slip dress for her barefoot beach wedding, and her only accessories were her long, tanned legs and her tousled brown locks. It was light, beautiful, and oh-so Cindy.
In case you haven’t noticed, models love to hire their designer friends to help them create the dress of their dreams, and Polish model Anja Rubik is no exception. For her wedding to fellow model Sasha Knezevic, she enlisted good pal Peter Dundas, a top Pucci designer. The dress he created was short at the front with a long train in the back and was topped off by a long veil. It was so unforgettable that it was included in London’s 2013 Iconic Wedding Dress Exhibition, alongside the wedding dresses of other top celebrities including Coco Rocha, Joan Collins, Portia de Rossi, and Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie.
