Miranda Kerr’s wedding dress is a beautiful representation of how a wedding dress can be stunning and modest at the same time. Inspired by the classic beauty of the Princess of Monaco, Grace Kelly’s wedding dress back in 1956, Miranda’s dress designed by Dior is pure elegance in its graceful lines, modesty and timeless appeal.

A refreshing change from the popular culture of baring all, Miranda’s wedding dress is stunningly simple and modest with a high neck, long sleeves and flared skirt. Appliqué work on the skirt with flowers or lilies of the valley adds a touch of the fairy tale. The long, white veil and floral headband add to the simple beauty of the dress and is the very essence of a classic bridal look.
Here is a look back at the dress that was the inspiration; Princess Grace of Monaco’s iconic wedding dress. The picture is from Vogue and shows Princess Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco back on their wedding day in 1956. Princess Grace’s dress was created by Academy Award–winning costume designer Helen Rose and took 30 seamstresses three weeks to make, using 300 yards of antique Belgian lace and 150 yards of taffeta, tulle, and silk.
Even today the tiny kingdom of Monaco draws tourists who admire Grace Kelly. Her mystique and glamour lives on in this tiny rather over developed city-state on the French Riviera.
The Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton too channeled a similar style in her own wedding dress in 2011.
Here is hoping that the young generation realizes apart from the inner beauty of character, beauty also lies in modesty and not in over exposing as many of today’s hyped celebrities seem to think.
