Check out Charlene Wittstock’s wedding dress from Armani Privé
So today was the day. After their civil marriage ceremony yesterday, Charlene Wittstock married Prince Albert II of Monaco in an open-air religious ceremony in the Palace courtyard. We’ve known for a while that Giorgio Armani would design her dress, but now we know what it looks like.
After wearing a blue suit by Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel for yesterday’s ceremony, today was all out royal wedding wear, as Charlene wore a beautiful Armani Privé dress made of off-white silk, which, according to The Daily Mail, took 2,500 hours to make.
The dress was covered in 40,000 Swarowski crystals and had a silk tulle train that measured 20 metres. The textured off-the-shoulder look created the perfect frame for Charlene’s swimmer’s figure, accentuating not only her broad shoulders but also her tall, lithe figure.
The new princess’ long blonde hair was gathered into a classic low chignon with a slight beehive look, reminiscent of the classic look often sported by her husband’s mother, Grace Kelly.
She also went for a silver headpiece rather than a tiara.
The couple’s rings were made from gold and platinum and were exchanged in front of 850 guests that included members of Europe’s royal families and stars from the fashion world, as well as members of the glamourous Monaco royal family.
Congratulations to the royal couple from all at Zankyou!
