Supermodel Miranda Kerr and CEO and Co-Founder of Snapchat Evan Spiegel have tied the knot in a low-key celebration. The two settled for an intimate affair at which there were only about 45 guests in a ceremony held in May in the backyard of their Brentwood home in Los Angeles.
The 34-year-old kept her wedding details under wraps until only recently, when she finally revealed a few teaser photos of her exclusive shoot taken by prominent photographer Patrick Demarchelier, which will appear in American Vogue’s August 2017 issue. Miranda wore a custom Dior Haute Couture gown, which was exclusively designed by Dior’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri.
“I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress,” Kerr told Vogue. “I thought if she’s up for it, I’m up for it.” And voila! Chiuri was up for it. The two met in Paris to discuss the bridal dress design, which mainly featured long sleeves and high neck. “A dress that fully covers you creates a sense of purity and mystery,” says the former Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Known for her free-spirited, bohemian lifestyle, the Australian supermodel opted for a more “pulled back” style when it came to her wedding gown. Kerr stated that her greatest sources of inspiration have always been the stars of the yesteryear: Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn, along with her grandmother, who, at 80, has an effortless chic style: nice pants, a white blouse, a scarf, and a little heel.
The Dior custom-made wedding dress was made of purest lines in silk mikado sprinkled with lily-of-the-valley embroideries. During her wedding day, Kerr looked absolutely regal and magnificent as the blushing bride. According to Chiuri, Kerr desired something like a fairy-tale dress that embodied emotion and simplicity at the same time. As such, her dream wedding gown was constructed beautifully in a custom-made Dior appliquéd satin dress, which was inspired by the iconic gown worn by actress Grace Kelly during her wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956. Completing the modest look, Kerr also donned a traditional veil with a pearl-encrusted headpiece designed by British milliner Stephen Jones.
Spiegel himself was spotted in a navy-blue three-piece suit also by Dior with a lily-of-the-valley boutonniere that complemented his new wife’s stunning gown. The new bride walked down the aisle to Arvo Pärt’s “Spiegel im Spiegel”—a fitting tribute to their upcoming life as man and wife. Meanwhile, Kerr’s 6-year-old son Flynn, from her previous marriage to actor Orlando Bloom, served as the adorable ring bearer, joining his mother and stepfather for their first dance.
What a beautiful and elegant way to start a new chapter of your life, don’t you think? Congratulations Mr and Mrs Spiegel!
