Vera Wang on *Bride Wars

Costume designer Karen Patch worked closely with Vera Wang to design two Vera Wang custom wedding gowns for Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway in Bride Wars. Kate’s dress was in fact based on a gown from Vera Wang’s 2009 collection but with a few changes including, “different fabric and more layers of bobbinette. It was so big she could barely fit going down the aisle.” (Read the interview here)

Anne Hathaway’s dress was supposed to be passed down from her mother, so there had to be a sense of nostalgia in the design. There is speculation that Anne’s dress was based on a gown from Vera Wang’s fall 2005 collection.

And since I am a hopeless romantic, I could not help but drift into la la land as I saw these editorial photographs on Vera Wang’s site. Just beautiful…

The gowns are gorgeous and I love "Bride Wars" (it was more funny than I thought it would be).

I do prefer Anne Hathaway's dress to Kate Hudson's. It's very elegant and chic.

lovely! I think I'd choose Anne's dress from the two but basically anything from Vera Wang would be a dream! :)

Love both dresses!! But yeah I prefer Anne's dress..More elegant, vintage, and not really princess-y..I just did my dress fitting last month, and thanks God it turns out as I wanted to be :) I'm feeling the jitters already :)
