Sixties wedding fashion style

Sixties bridal fashion

Few weeks ago, I was wandering among the stalls of a vintage fair, when I was so lucky to find original bridal sewing patterns of the sixties, what a treat and what a step back in time.  The 1960s saw the effects of Mary Quant's miniskirts and the dramatic 60s fashions worn by Twiggy that highlighted the bust, reflecting on bridal style too.
The first iconic wedding gowns of this era which pop up to my mind were short, late in the sixties, Audrey Hepburn, Yoko Ono, Sharon Tate, Cilla Black to name a few.
Audrey Hepburn for her marriage to Andrea Dotti in 1969, worn a simple yet stunning, wedding ensemble created for her by Givenchy, a light pink mohair and cashmere jersey mini dress, high collar, tight long sleeves with ruffle cuffs. A coat of pale pink wool twill, double breasted, above-knee length and a matching kerchief in the same color and material.

Jane Fonda married her first husband, French film director Roger Vadim, on August 14, 1965 in Las vegas wearing a shift dress. As metallic wedding dress are a popular 2019 trend and most definetly and eye-catching option within the 2019 wedding style, who is in in for an originale 1960s gold shift dress to be worn in perfect Barbarella Style.

Only few months ago I saw the movie Legend on the rise and all of the criminal Kray Twins, who terrorized London during the 1960s, I immediately recall the actress Emily Browning wearing simply-chic wedding dress on the movie, curios as I am, I had to find the photo of the real wedding of Frances and Reggie.
