Kristen Stewart made fashion history when she and Robert Pattinson got engaged in January 2019. The “Never Been Kissed” starlet previously walked down the aisle in a stunning white dress, which became one of the most iconic wedding dresses in Hollywood history. Now, with just over a month to go before their wedding day, the designer is paying homage to the happiest day of their lives with an elegant yet timeless look for the big day.
As for their engagement and wedding details, the couple will tie the knot at St Barts on November 27. The destination has a special meaning for Stewart, who grew up spending part of her holidays there. She and Pattinson will exchange vows at the St John the Baptist Anglican Church. The wedding cake will be designed with an engagement ring pattern featuring the couple’s names in block letters. A reception will be held at the Four Seasons Hotel in New York City.
A Classic Look
With just one look, Stewart undresses back to her base layer while still keeping her classy ensemble, a timeless combination of a classic dress and a classy coat or jacket. The designer Dior is credited with coining the phrase “nude versus burgundy” when referring to the former Olympic champion’s favorite hue versus that of her engagement ring. She turned to the designer for her wedding dress, which is made up of a burgundy sheath with a high-waisted option.
On the subject of wedding rings, Stewart has stated that she is a “pretty traditional” girl when it comes to choosing a mate. “I always think that you have to be smart with your choice and not pick someone just because they have a nice smile. You should go for someone who makes you laugh, who you feel comfortable with and who you think will be a good husband,” she said. “I would love to have a vintage engagement ring, maybe from the ’50s or ’60s. Something that has been passed down through the generations. Something that will remind us of what is important in life.”
A Modern Twist
Pattinson has also cited family and friends’ weddings as a key influence on his style. “I love looking at other people’s weddings because of the vibes you get from them. I love how personal they are,” he said. “When I walk down the aisle I want to feel like it’s a celebration of my personality and a reflection of who I am as a person.”
One of the most prominent designers inspired by the English actor’s style is Gucci, who crafted a black dress with golden embellishments that recall the actor’s beloved horse, Apres-Solo. Meanwhile, Miu Miu presented the first collection of her ready-to-wear label for Hanae Mori Estate Sale, which pays homage to the British fashion house’s most famous garment, the party dress. A photo of the Oscar-nominated actress in the design has garnered over 12.3 million views on social media platforms like Instagram.
A Bit Of A Retro Look
While we’re on the subject of fashion influences, it would be remiss not to mention the immense impact that the retro styles have had on today’s hottest celebrities. In fact, many of today’s leading ladies are inspired by the iconic fashion from a more glamorous era.
From Joan Collins’ classic black-and-white dress to Grace Kelly’s iconic red-carpet moment, retro styles have never been more popular. And it’s not hard to see why. With the right accessories, a woman can totally reinvent the way she looks, and it doesn’t require a significant change to feel like you’ve gone back in time. A little black dress, red cami, and matching handbag can make a massive difference. It’s quite an outfit, and it won’t hurt if you add a little bling here and there.
So, if you’re looking to incorporate some of the styles that made these two such notable figures, you can totally pull it off. Just make sure that you’re feeling confident enough to shine and that you know how to use all the right accessories. And don’t forget – a red dress on a woman can be the physical manifestation of courage, while a black dress can be a testament to her spiritual fortitude.
