Designer : Carolina Herrera
This particular gown was inspired by the painting by Franz Xavier Winterhalter, an artist often commissioned by royalty in the 1800’s.
This strapless dress is made of tulle, which has been hand painted, hand embroidered and beaded. Herrera used stones in many shapes and sizes – round, teardrop, oval and rectangular cut stones, tiny cut beads, chalk sequins and mother of pearl palettes are intricately dispersed throughout the design.
Silhouette : Ball Gown
Neckline : Strapless
Hemline : Floor-Length
I wore this dress for my wedding day on august 2011 and took it out from the Carolina Herrera's Bridal Store in july.. (not even a month from the wedding!!) you cant even notice that it was worn. (and only once!) it is in perfectly new conditions.
