When Victoria Beckham got married in 1999 to David Beckham, she walked down the aisle in a very captivating Vera Wang champagne-colored ball gown.
Wang is known to go above and beyond to make sure her brides get the perfectly-tailored gown on their wedding day! In an interview with People magazine, the designer explained how it required so many flights across the Atlantic and back to fit the dress accurately.
The International Dress Travels
The fashion expert has designed wedding gowns for various famous celebs like Ariana Grande, and Kim Kardashian. And just like every other celebrity, she made sure Victoria Beckham also got an ideal fit, so she flew the gown back and forth four times on the Concorde.
Wang mentioned that Mister Pearl creates traditional corsets to accommodate the slimmest of waists, and it would take around 45 minutes to lace it up properly!
The Travel Troupe
It wasn’t just the dress that crossed continents, Beckham and Wang did so too. Wang traveled to London to fit the corset on Victoria Beckham, while Victoria flew to New York City twice for fitting appointments.
Because Victoria got pregnant, the wedding got postponed. And after a year and a half, the dress project resumed, and the bride got married in a beautifully curated Vera Wang wedding gown. Wang even said that this was why she called Victoria and David’s event a truly transatlantic wedding.
