Most interesting were the dresses that were accompanied by a photograph of the wearer, and I felt that it was a shame there weren’t more of those.
From the Emmanuel’s (of Princess Diana’s wedding dress fame) was a dress that Liz Hurley wore for an iconic Estee Lauder ad in 1999– the perfect floral full skirted wedding dress.
There was an instantly recognizable dress worn by Princess Diana – I can’t remember who designed it, but here it is and I’m sure you will recognize it.
Some designers had donated their dresses, but I felt they could maybe have chosen other pieces that would have done them more justice. anyway, my daughter found her ideal wedding dress, which she duly photographed for future reference for an as yet completely unknown event.
Anyway here are a selection of my favoutites – go and enjoy it whilst it is on, and after that you have the whole amazing V&a to wander round, though I always find a couple of hours at one go is enough – by then I need a quick whisk round the shop, a coffee fix and some fresh air.
