The high expectations were more than exceeded by the stunning handmade duchesse satin, silk tulle, georgette embroidered dress with a tiered train that Dylan Lauren wore on her wedding to hedge fund manager Paul Arrouet.
The gown was created in consultation with Ralph Lauren’s former protégée and Grande Dame of bridal wear Vera Wang. It was kept under close guard at Ralph Lauren’s New York premises prior to the wedding.
Speaking on the Oprah Winfrey show recently, Mr Lauren admitted that the gown’s creation was an emotional experience, saying “I had to do something that was better than ever before. When you do something for your family or your daughter, I mean it’s the only daughter I have – beautiful girl.”
Speaking of the dress created for her by her father, Dylan commented: “It’s really beautiful. I know that every bit of his energy and heart went into making sure that I liked it.”
Other details have also been emerging about the wedding, including the bridesmaids’ dresses being designed in the colour of Dylan’s confectionery company.
