Miranda Kerr, who announced her engagement to Evan Spiegel in July of 2016, recently wed the Snapchat co-founder in an intimate ceremony of approximately 45 people, sources say. The couple, who had the world thinking they'd wed earlier this summer, decided to keep their much-anticipated nuptials intimate–hosting close family and friends at their Los Angeles home for a backyard vow exchange.
The bride wore Dior. Dior Haute Couture to be exact, created for her by the house's new designer, Maria Grazia Chiuri, the first woman to helm the brand in its almost 70-year history. Although Kerr and Grazia Chiuri had never met prior to her gown's design meetings, Kerr noted on her Instagram that Dior was ideal for her "dream wedding dress," a look that clearly took more notes from royals throughout history than it did Dior's recent runways.
Grace Kelly's Helen Rose look for her 1956 wedding to Prince Rainier of Monaco was the obvious inspiration for Kerr's wedding day look. Kerr's gown was almost an exact replica, but with some updates. Kelly's featured a mandarin collared mock neckline, while Kerr opted for a more athletic crew neck; Kelly's was all-lace, while Kerr opted for a heavier silk, with flowers scattered throughout her train.
Both gowns featured a multitude of covered buttons and were undeniably conservative, capping the look off with a traditional veil complete with a feminine, floral crown that felt more apropos for a coronation than Coachella, despite Kerr's ceremony's proximity to Palm Springs (and Dior's recent Cruise 2018 runway, which was inspired by desert dressing). Spiegel and Kerr's son Flynn, whom she shares with Orlando Bloom, reportedly donned Dior morning suits for the occasion as well.
Kerr often taps '50s style icons like Audrey Hepburn for inspiration when dressing for events and the red carpet but a second wedding (Kerr married Orlando Bloom in July of 2010), held at home rather than in a religious setting, offers a bride certain fashion liberties.
Kerr could have opted for
On her Instagram, Kerr notes that the day was "magical." The posts on Kerr's handle are apparently the only ones we'll see from the day–as apparently all forms of social media, even Snapchat, were banned from the couple's celebrations.
Congratulations to the happy couple!
