GRANDIOSE GOWNS

Do you know Angelababy?

It seems that she is a Chinese star who wore a Dior wedding dress.

No one knows how much the Chinese superstar spent on her custom designer gown at her extravagant 2015 wedding to actor Huang XiaomingDo the math, as they say– 115 feet of ivory satin organza, 165 feet of tulle, nearly 100 hand-cut rose bouquets of Chantilly lace, not to mention the 10-foot train.  By the way, it took five months to create. One can assume that a massive chunk of the $31-million wedding budget was spent on bridalwear. Shame that the traditional Chinese costumes and rituals are being forsaken by wealthy Chinese. Many now go to Crete and Santorini for weddings and honeymoons (with their relatives in tow). Imagine a remake of my big fat Greek in Mandarin?

Another star’s wedding once fascinated the world. However it falls much lower on the price list. Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding to Monaco’s Prince Rainier III exemplified Hollywood and royalty. MGM costume designer Helen Rose made the American princess’ dress from 100 yards of silk and 25 yards of taffeta. At the time it cost around $10,000, but today, the price tag would be closer to $85,000

  • P.S. SUGGESTION: New Bridal List: something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue plus garment insurance against stain, loss or theft.
