Seeing a supermodel own the runway can be a breathtaking experience – let alone a supermodel dressed as a bride. Karl Lagerfeld famously closed his Chanel couture shows with bridal looks, worn by the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Alek Wek and Devon Aoki during his tenure. His successor, Virginie Viard, continued the tradition and cast Jill Kortleve and Vittoria Ceretti as couture brides for autumn/winter 2022 and autumn/winter 2019 respectively.
In the 1990s, Gianni Versace recruited his beloved supers to walk as brides in his finales. Naomi Campbell famously wore a sparkling minidress at the autumn/winter 1997 show and Kate Moss wore a dazzling disco ball dress to close autumn/winter 1995.
As one of the most in-demand models of the moment, Bella Hadid has been a bride several times in recent seasons. The super went viral as a dagger-wielding bride at Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood’s autumn/winter 2020 show, and she wore a purple gown at Versace’s recent spring/summer 2023 showcase.
