Princess Charlene's Fashion

Princess Madeleine's Wedding Gown!

She's married! He's smiled! We are happy, so let's have a look at Princess Madeleine's wedding gown!




As announced by The Palace two days ago, Valentino himself designed the gown for the princess.

The bride stepped in the Royal Chapel in a silk organza gown with ivory Chantilly lace appliqués. As described by the palace, the upper part of the bodice is made of lace, off the shoulder short sleeves and a V  back .The middle part of the bodice is the only lace-less part in the gown as the lace appliqués from the lower part to the end of the gown.


The waist is fitted and from it pleats open up to form a full ball skirt which also has the ivory Chantilly lace appliqués. The end of the skirt features a heavily-appliquéd (dust) ruffle, the back of the skirt has more pleats which form the four-meter train.





Madeleine decided not to wear the heirloom lace veil, instead she wore a new silk organza veil which is "edged with tulle scatted with point d'esprit dots and small Chantilly lace orange blossom", the veil is longer than the four-meter train!


Madeleine wore slingback pumps in "Ivory white organdy with woven point d'esprit dots."




 
With her attire, the princess opted out of most traditions as she wore the Modern Fringe Tiara instead of the Cameo Tiara -Which I sadly put my money on-, the tiara looked different to me in the beginning because it was placed higher than usual and its base was decorated with sprigs of orange blossom.




The tiara secured the veil at its place on Madeleine's low bun which was created by Rick Ljung while the makeup was done by Sara Denman. Sticking to one tradition, Madeleine wore myrtle in her hair (below).




Madeleine held a round-shaped bouquet with all-white flowers.




As for the other jewelry, she wore the same earrings she wore for her sister's wedding, they belong to the Bernadotte collection and the bracelet she wore last night, along with her whopper engagement ring.



Valentino released the sketch of the gown, it looks quite different there at first glance!



I think Princess Madeleine looked very beautiful, but I don't love the dress, don't hate it either! The ruffle thing at the skirt reminds me of Princess Sibilla's wedding gown, designed by Valentino, too, it wasn't good then 19 years ago, and it's not good now. But thankfully, since Madeleine's isn't made of silk satin it's more tolerable! I like that Madeleine mixed traditional with modern and did her own thing, too.



What do you think of Princess Madeleine's wedding gown?

  1. I thought it was very light and airy. A fresh summery look. The look on the groom's face was the only critic that really mattered and he was most definitely overwhelmed so I call that a job well done by all parties involved!

    1. Yes, the gown wasn't too heavy and didn't have many layers, like whipped cream, airy and fluffy!

  2. The gown looked comfortable and light. Princess Charlene had the stiffest looking gown. One had to be a ex-Olympian to drag that wedding gown of hers. I always though that the weight of the gown and heat must have been one of the sources of her look of discomfort. I hated the line in the middle of her Armani gown.

    1. I didn't find Charlene's stiffy, it was rich in details but had a very simple design, Agree that it needs some like Charlene to pull it off, but it was designed for Charlene and I think it's great that he designed something only she could pull off, I think it wasn't so comfortable, though with the long train. I still don't understand why it was seamed in the middle, was weird but not irritating!

  3. I was so happy to read that Mads had chosen Valentino to design her gown. I was not happy to see the left sleeve slip off her shoulder, I can't believe Valentino made that mistake. I've seen video of him fussing and fitting, so why?
    That said I loved the shape, the lace, the lightness and the ruffle. It was so pretty and enhanced by the luscious veil and tiara. I was not disappointed that she didn't wear the cameo, as I am not a fan.
    I understand Chris's smile.

    1. I agree about the poor tailoring. I was not happy to see the left sleeve slip off. I didn't like the lace on top. I seemed too 'average'; something that I can buy at the fabric store. I didn't like the ruffle at the bottom neither.
      I absolutely loved Victoria's dress. I thought that it was more beautiful than the bridal gown. Hence, Victoria should have worn something more subtle.
      Kem, you should be Charlene's stylist. Does she have one, do you know? I still can't believe that anyone would wear a shiny red suit. I'm surprise that Albert would let her wear that.

    2. I think it's not poor tailoring, the neckline is between boat and off the shoulder and with the V back it's kinda hard for the sleeves to stay in their place no matter what he does!
      Victoria's gown and Madeleine's are very different so I guess it's all a matter of tastes when it comes to liking one of them. However, I think Vic's dress is a memorable outfit for a guest while Madd's is not a memorable royal wedding gown.

      Thanks :D, seeing what Charlene wears, I'm pretty sure she does not have a stylist, she wears some pieces like 5 times for engagements in a row like that LBD. A stylist would never do that. But I can be her stylist, she just has to book me a ticket and I can sleep in the princely closet :P We'll have to discuss that suit in another post!
