There are a lot of iconic wedding dress moments. From Mia Farrow’s ’60s style suit when she married Frank Sinatra to Gwen Stefani’s white and pink dip-dyed Dior gown, celebrity brides have spanned the style spectrum. But of all the memorable bridal moments, Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy in her bias-cut silk Narciso Rodriguez gown is my absolute favorite. (JFK Jr. on her arm didn’t hurt, either.)
Nothing says princess like a strapless dress with a tulle ball skirt. But for someone who was marrying into American royalty, a simple silk gown was the perfect choice. Paired with elbow-length gloves and a hand-rolled tulle veil, she bridged the gap between modern and traditional, perfect for the woman crowned by many as the Queen of Camelot.
The height of wedding season is June, so we are right in the calm before the storm. Take a little style inspiration from one of the most unforgettable moments in celebrity weddings. Sometimes the best ideas come from the women who have already paved the way down the aisle.
So on this Throwback Thursday, enjoy a little bridal eye candy and shop the Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy inspired wedding look above. See you at the altar!
