It was the fairlytale wedding of 2011… Hang on a minute! For Americans perhaps, but over here in Britain who can forget the real fairytale wedding of royals Prince William and Catherine, or Kate as we will forever call her. And as with Kate’s much talked about Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding dress, Vera Wang’s three gowns for US reality TV star Kim Kardashian are now being replicated, despite Kim ending her marriage to Kris after just 72 days.
The 31-year-old socialite married Kris Humphries in August but have already filed for divorce due to ‘irreconcilable differences’. But what about the dresses? Would wearing a Kim-copy mean that your own marriage is doomed from the start? We’re not really superstitious here so we think a marriage – and a relationship for that matter – will last if both persons involved make a genuine effort every day to show their love and support and be willing to work at it, through dark times and good. So wearing a dress which is a copy of soon-to-be divorcee Kim Kardashian has nothing to do with how your own union turn out.
The collections are already being produced and will be on sale in the US from February. Bridal designer extraordinaire – and close friend to the bride, Vera Wang, is said to have been shocked by the news of the marriage ending so quickly. But Vera isn’t too worried about the ‘curse’ as other dresses she has designed for doomed celebrity weddings have proved very popular despite the way those marriages turned out.
