4 Of Our Favorite Bridal Designers Sketch What Kim Kardashian's Dress Will Look Like
August 12, 2011
After accessory designer Colette Malouf sketched what she thinks Kim Kardashian’s wedding hair should be exclusively for us, we sort of got sketch fever. Having designers envision what they think celebrity (or royal!) brides will wear is like the anticipation before Christmas morning: you don’t know what you’re getting, but you know it’s going to be awesome.
Now, Ines Di Santo (above) and 4 other premier gown designers have done just that! Ines created a Silk Satin Organza gown with ifferent size Swarovski crystals embroidered throughout the bodice. The inspiration for Ines was, “to create something very luxe that represents Kim’s style and sets her apart from every other bride. To dress a curvy body such as Kim’s it is all about accentuating the waist. The beading accentuates her waist because it’s concentrated at waistline. The gown also features a detachable train.”
Anne gave Kim’s dress has an elongated mermaid bodice with ivory French Alencon lace heavily embellishment and 3-dimensional organza petals and beading. The dress also features a pearl silk organza skirt, triple-tiered scalloped lace appliqué hem and chapel. “My inspiration was over-the-top romantic drama. The lace was the romance and the drama was the silhouette and three dimensional beading and embroidery,” Anne says.
Claire used silk charmeuse with hand-beaded tulle and ribbon roses, as well as silk ribbon flowers, Swarovski crystals and pearl accents. The gown has a sweetheart neckline and mermaid silhouette, with a full sweeping train. “Love your curves, and accent your waist!” Claire advises Kim, and hourglass girls everywhere. “Try to keep the lines of your gown long and lean (rather than breaking it up say, with a belt) I think this gives an elegance to the curves. The ribcage is usually one of our slimmest areas, so if you have a full bust & hips, you can choose a gown fitted through the high waist to really give an hourglass look. I love to bring focus up to the neckline and face, so why not show a (tasteful) amount of décolleté?!”
“I tried to be true to Kim’s style, which tends to be more sexy and dramatic, but also take into consideration that for her wedding day she may surprise us all,” Jennifer says. “The gown I designed for Kim has a structured bodice and trumpet style skirt that flaunt her fabulous curves. The neckline and bodice are simple so she can add her own jewelry, and the skirt has soft feminine draping with a dramatic billowing train to appeal to her usual sensational gown choices. I added clear crystal beads throughout for some sparkle.”
