With Lady Gaga now officially engaged to Taylor Kinney following his Valentine’s Day proposal, WWD has now invited as many as 36 top designers to come up with sketches for what they envision will be the superstar’s show-stopping wedding dress. From absolutely outrageous to understated pieces that place emphasis on elegance and romance, the array of dresses available to Lady Gaga will definitely be the subject of any woman’s envy.
While Lady Gaga has yet to make up her mind on what dress she will be wearing, she has declared that her dress will be “all about my man”. Well, knowing Lady Gaga’s impeccable style, we’re sure the results would be great whichever dress she picks.
Check out some of our favourite sketches below! To view all the sketches, head over to Gaga Media. (All photos taken from Gaga Media.)
We’re loving how Karl Lagerfeld has thoughtfully come up with two different styles for the fashion chameleon — a Victorian-esque dramatic white gown for a media bash wedding, and a gender-bending suit (definitely fashion-forward!) for a very private wedding. This silver Alexander Wang for Balenciaga piece may seem a tad understated for Lady Gaga but exudes a sense of low-key elegance and extravagance. The asymmetrical train adds some interest and movement to the look. The blue and golden palette from this Bibhu Mohapatra creation screams chic winter wedding to us and is one of our favourite sketches in the lot. We’re loving how the voluminous skirt with slits promises to be a show-stopper when the bride walks, and we’re loving how the designer has injected details such as asymmetrical sleeves to cater to Lady Gaga’s adventurous taste, while keeping the entire look elegant.
We’re intrigued by how this Dennis Bao creation manages to appear covered up and exposed at the same time. The designer has cleverly played with volume and fabric transparencies in this look which channels stately and edgy all at once. This Atelier DKNY dress, with its dramatic layered pleated skirt and gold accents, screams superstar wedding when we look at it. Apart from the dress, we also love the styling with a cathedral veil and come-hither eyes. Compared to the other pieces, this Misha Nonoo piece channels an easy and almost casual vibe. However, we love the innovation pairing of a bandeau tube with a halter-neck wedding dress, and of course, the absolutely dramatic wide-brimmed hat which is a brilliant play on proportions. As they all say, less is more. It is easy to see why Monique Lhuillier is one of the most popular bridal designers around with this dress. Featuring a glorious trumpet cut, luxurious beadwork and a dramatic pleated skirt, this dress is glamorous while keeping true to the essence of what a wedding is about: romance.
