First Look: Charlene Wittstock's wedding dress.

Charlene Wittstock and Prince Albert II of Monaco.
Princess Charlene of Monaco walked down the aisle last Saturday in a beautiful Giorgio Armani Privé wedding dress. The gown was made of off-white silk duchesse satin. It had a long train and a crossover detail on the front and back of the train, which formed a second "à l’andrienne" train. Also on the front of the dress: floral embroidery crafted with countless Swarovski crystals and mother of pearl teardrops in white and gold hues. The wedding look was completed by an off-white silk tulle veil, that required 20 metres of fabric and over a 100 hours to create. The designer, who also dressed Charlene's father and brothers, said of the dress "The idea was to go for a completely modern look, without any obvious sense of nostalgia or revivalism. I felt this was appropriate given that there would inevitably be comparisons with Princess Grace, and though such comparisons are of course a sign of admiration, each person has their own individual and unique style, and style is an expression of the times."
