The best of haute-couture bridal gowns – J’Aton Couture

Holly Valance pulled out all the stops when she worked with designers Jacob Luppino and Anthony Pittorino to create her unique J’Aton Couture wedding gown. The dress was hand embroidered in fine silk and hand dyed in white to silver metallic and deep shades of grey. The full skirt resembling feathers represented Holly’s love of organic textures and had an embroidered flowing vintage-style veil which doubled as a train.



haute-couture bridal gowns – Giorgio Armani

Katie Holmes looked every inch the fairytale princess when she wed Tom Cruise at the Odescalchi Castle in Italy in a couture Armani gown. Her off-the-shoulder ivory silk gown was embellished with Valenciennes lace and Swarovski crystals and her veil was made from crinoline and tulle. The beautiful creation took the Italian designer more than 350 hours to make.

“Katie wanted a simple, elegant dress,” said Armani. “I wanted to make it modern but at the same time complement the sweetness and energy she conveys.”

haute-couture bridal gowns– Vera Wang

Ivanka Trump radiated elegance in her custom-made Vera Wang dress when she wed Jared Bedminster in 2009. The A-Line cut dress had three hand-appliqued layers of lace and was inspired by Grace Kelly. Sleeves were added to make the dress more demure, as her groom Jared is Orthodox Jewish and Ivanka was newly converted.
