The Dior dress Miranda Kerr wore when she married Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in May will go on display at the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne later this month.
The wedding dress is a last-minute inclusion in the NGV’s exhibit The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture which runs from 27 August until 7 November.
Miranda’s custom gown was created by artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri – the first woman to lead the House of Dior in its 69-year history. It’s said to have been inspired by Grace Kelly, and featured a high neck, long sleeves and lily-of-the-valley embellishments that were individually hand sewn.
She topped off her dress with a custom pearl headpiece designed by Dior’s resident milliner Stephen Jones. He’s also restoring and creating more than 160 headpieces as part of the NGV exhibit.
“Honestly, I couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful wedding dress,” Miranda told Vogue. “When I was young, my grandmother told me, ‘Miranda, men are very visual. It’s important to look good.’ I was like, ‘OK, Nan.'”
Miranda and Evan tied the knot at their $16 million Brentwood home over the Memorial Day weekend in the US in May, in an intimate ceremony reported to have been attended by less than 50 guests with no bridal party.
