In case you’re wondering, the Vicky P’s wedding dress is not actually named after the character from The Jungle Book. That would be too simple. It’s actually named after the character Vicky Price from the Netflix original movie, The OA. You may also know her from the TV series, The Handmaid’s Tale. (Incidentally, John Noble is the costume designer for both series. Therefore, you might be seeing a lot of his work in the near future.)
While it’s not exactly a family vacation for Kate and Meghan, they are both going to be wearing their designer daughter’s wedding wedding dress. And when we say wedding dress, we mean it. This is not just a bridesmaid’s dress. This is the guest list wedding dress. (Yes, those guests will also be wearing masks. So you might see a bit of a ghost theme here. Which is fitting, considering the season. But more on that later.)
If you wonder what made the Vicky P’s wedding dress so special, it’s the fact that it was custom made for the movie. Not only that, but it’s one of a kind. (A wedding dress like this has never been made for sale.)
So, what is the difference between a custom made and a normal wedding dress? Let’s take a look.
When people hear the word “custom”, they think of clothes and jackets and suits. But wedding dresses are exactly what we are talking about. (Although, to be honest, nobody wears jackets and suits at weddings anymore. It’s more of a statement now.)
A custom made wedding dress is one that is specifically tailored to the wedding guest and bridesmaids. (Yes, the knot is optional. But it’s always considered a wedding signature movement.) In addition, the guests will be wearing masks. So, we could say that this is a special kind of wedding dress.
It’s always a pleasure to make a guest welcome. But it’s an even more special pleasure to make a guest feel like they are special. Especially when they are wearing your design. So, when you make a guest welcome, you make a friend for life. (Besides, it’s not just a guest. It’s a family heirloom. So this is a very personal wedding dress.)
One of A Kind
As we mentioned earlier, this is not just a special wedding dress because it’s custom made. But it’s also one of a kind. (There are no others like it. Ever.)
It’s not actually made from a single garment. Instead, it is made up of three separate garments, which are then sewn together. (This is more than likely due to time constraints. Otherwise, it is impossible to make such a complicated garment.)
The first garment is a base layer with arm holes. It is white with a light blue bodice. (Yes, the fabric is purely visual. But it’s a very cool and refreshing sight to look at a wedding dress and not even bother about the idea of wedding shoes.)
The next garment is a chemise with embroidery on the front and back of the torso. (This particular chemise is white with dark and light blue trimming.)
The last piece is a belt that holds up the dress. It is dark blue with a light blue buckle. (You might remember this particular belt from the James Bond film, Dr. No.)
So, there you have it. A summary of what makes this dress special. First off, it’s a wedding dress, specifically made for the movie. (Yes, we are looking at you, Beyonce.) Second off, it’s one of a kind. There is no other wedding dress like it. (That’s a fact.) And lastly, it’s comfortable. (Or not. That is the question. So, let’s find out what comforts these guests most about this wedding dress.)
