As a great movies fan, I enjoyed preparing a gallery of weddings and brides that most impressed me on the big screen, what more than a film can give you unique and moving experience, make you smile, and cry, just like in one of the most important days in the life of each of us. Some dresses are truly wonderful, timeless icons. My favorite, definitely, the one designed by Givenchy and worn by Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. A super-modern tea length wedding dress, it’s one of the earliest short wedding dresses, a real innovation for the ’50s, it reminds the Tutu of a ballet dancer. Today, as then simply, minimal, elegant and glamorous. Others unlikely, excessive make me smile or remind me as we were.
