While a lot of speculations are doing the rounds about who will design the wedding gown for the British royal bride to be, Kate Middlleton, we know who will design the wedding gown for another royal wedding, that of Monaco. Prince Albert’s fiancée, Charlene Wittstock will be wearing an Armani gown for her special day. The 76 year old courtier made the announcement after his men’s fashion show in Milan on Sunday. “Yes, I want to declare, I will make the wedding dress.”
Wittstock is friends with Armani and has been to his shows in Italy for the past two years. Considering the friendship and her consistent admiration for his designs, it was considered quite obvious that he would design the wedding gown. She even wore his design to Monaco’s Rose Ball Gala, and at Monaco’s National Day this November 24. The wedding is in July but the designer has not made it know what the design is going to be like. Well that isn’t such a bad move, considering the bride would most probably wouldn’t want people to start commenting on her dress before she even wears it.
Whatever be the design, it will surely be compared to her late mother-in-law, Grace Kelley’s iconic wedding dress, which she wore in 1956. The gown had been a gift from the MGM studio and had been designed by studio wardrobe costumer Helen Rose and as we all know has become a part of history due to its grandeur and beauty.
