See Miranda Kerr’s Grace Kelly–Inspired Dior Couture Wedding Dress
After much anticipation (OK, two months), we finally have an official peek at the gown Miranda Kerr wore for her super-secret nuptials to Evan Spiegel. And it's as luxe as we expected.
Unsurprisingly, the model's big day was captured for posterity by Vogue. The glossy sent photographer Patrick Demarchelier to Los Angeles to shoot Kerr in her custom Dior Haute Couture gown alongside its designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri, at home. "I think it's every girl's dream to have Dior design her wedding dress," the bride told Vogue. “I thought, If [Chiuri]’s up for it, I'm up for it."
Kerr first met with the Dior team back in the fall. The main inspiration for the couture gown—a long-sleeved satin dress with lily appliqués down the skirt—was the dress Grace Kelly wore to her 1956 nuptials to Prince Rainier III of Monaco. (See below.)
"I've had a lot of fun with fashion, and I used to be more wild, free, bohemian," Kerr told the magazine. "But in this period of my life, my style is more pulled back. My greatest sources of inspiration have always been Grace, Audrey Hepburn, and my grandmother, who at 80 has an effortless chic: a nice pant, a white blouse, a scarf, a little heel."
"She wanted something like a fairy tale," Chiuri said of Kerr's original concept for the gown—the designer's first wedding style for Dior since joining the house last year. "She gave me this idea, to make a dress that was emotional and simple at the same time." The groom and ring bearer—Kerr's six-year-old son, Flynn—were also decked in Dior for the occasion. The designer created a shorter, reception-ready frock for the model to change into after the ceremony, according to Vogue—though we've yet to get a peek at that second look.
Kerr shared the Demarchelier-lensed images on her Instagram, thanking Chiuri and the Dior team "for creating my dream wedding dress" and noting that it was "such a magical day."
