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."
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.
