Dress for $1 million: wedding images of Victoria Swarovski, Pippa Middleton, Anastasia Shubskaya and others

    The wedding season is in full swing: while some girls are searching for "the same" dresses, others have already become wifes. We tell who did this on a special scale and opened the hit parade of the brightest brides of this summer 2017.

    Victoria Swarovski's Michael Cinco Wedding Dress

    Among the most high-profile events of this summer is already the wedding of the heiress of the Swarovski Empire - Victoria. At the end of June, she said "yes" to her fiancé Werner Mürts, whom she dated for seven years. On the occasion of the long-awaited celebration, the 23-year-old bride ordered a dress from designer of the United Arab Emirates Michael Sinco, known for the works for Lady Gaga, Beyonce and Jay Lo. He sewed for the girl a magnificent dress with a transparent top and a six-meter train, adorned with 500 thousand Swarovski crystals. Victoria paid almost 1 million dollars for the skillful work, but this amount, apparently, was not enough to pay for the functionality and ease of the outfit. Dress weighed almost 46 kilograms and did not let her relax for a second - although  this was not noticeable by the happy face of the bride.

    Ally Hilfiger in the Tommy Hilfiger dress 

    The daughter of the designer Tommy Hilfiger, 32-year-old Ally, did not marry with such pomp: a modest dress made of silk and tulle was created by her father, who took into account all the wishes of Ally and instead of the veil supplemented the image with a translucent cape with a hood. Hilfiger decorated her with floral embroidery and blue ornamentation, reminiscent of Gzhel painting, and for the groom of her daughter - Steve Hash - made a monophonic suit of white linen.

    Russian actress Svetlana Ustinova in the dress by Maison Bohemique

    For a closed but very large-scale wedding with film producer Ilya Stewart, actress Svetlana Ustinova chose Maison Bohemique, a classic Hollywood version with open shoulders and a satin skirt. The ceremony itself was sustained in the style of the film La La Lend and was directed by Andrei Fomin in the pavilion of Mosfilm. He decorated the stage for registration with cardboard skyscrapers and stars, purple sky over the scene, and the bride herself went out to the groom for the Oscar-winning soundtrack "City of Stars".

    Pippa Middleton in the Giles Deacon dress

    The designer of the wedding dress of the sister of the Duchess of Cambridge was a matter for speculation from the very beginning of the affair of Pippa with James Matthews. As options were the author of the wedding attire of Kate Middleton - Sarah Burton (Alexander McQueen) and David Emmanuel (Emanuel), who was responsible for the wedding image of Princess Diana. However, the girl did not go on the occasion of the traditions and ordered a dress from Giles Deacon, who dresses American models and actresses of the rank of Gwyneth Paltrow. For Middleton, the designer created a laconic outfit with short sleeves (as opposed to royal etiquette), a "cordial" neckline on the back and a collar-stand. Giles manually decorated it with small pearls. It was the pearl that became the part that connected all the elements of Pippa's image: besides dress, it was present on jewelry, a diadem, bride's shoes from Manolo Blanik and a veil made by the British Stephen Johns.

    Antonella Roccuzzo (the bride of Lionel Messi) in the Rosa Clara dress 

    In the choice of the author of a wedding dress, the bride of Lionel Messi was as patriotic as the sisters of Middleton. Antonella Roccuzzo made an exclusive order from the team of the Spanish brand Rosa Clara, who worked on the image of the future wife of the football player 200 hours. As a result, we got an outfit with a deep V-neck and an open back, along which the embroidery from the guipure stretched. It is interesting that the dress was made on a mid-19th century machine from the old French lace and beads, and was escorted to the place of the wedding by two armed guards. 

    Lolita Osmanova (daughter of businessman Eldar Osmanov) in the Zuhair Murad dress 

    On the first day of July, the wedding of the children of Russian oligarchs - Lolita Osmanova and Gaspard Avdolyan took place at the Dolby Theater, where the Oscar ceremony takes place every year. The celebration, according to modest estimates of the press, costed about $ 10 million: the cost estimate includes a banquet for 600 people, fees for leading Ksenia Sobchak and Andrei Malakhov, the performance of Lady Gaga and Jason Derulo, as well as an individual dress from Zuhair Murad. Especially for a rich bride the designer from Lebanon sewed an outfit that is not in any collection of the brand: with open shoulders, shimmering in the light of the soffits skirt and gigant train, in which Lolita was not able moving freely, but which made her look like an oriental princess. On the girl's head was a bandage of precious stones and a veil with embroidery repeating the texture of the dress.

    The second day of the wedding: Anastasia Shubskaya in Galia Lahav dress

    A hockey player Alexander Ovechkin and Anastasia Shubskaya married a year ago, but celebrated the event only this summer. The daughter of actress Vera Glagoleva had a lot of time to choose a worthy outfit, but she did not manage to stop at one. For two days of celebrating, Anastasia changed four wedding looks: from a conservative dress-bustier with lace and floral ornaments, the bride switched to more frank models with cuts on her chest and waist, in which it was more comfortable to sing, dance and take photos with guests.
