Tina Turner was iconic. That fact is indisputable. Her wedding dress, however, was pretty controversial. She wore this Giorgio Armani in 2013 when she married her husband, Erwin Bach. Not feeling like conforming to the usual white, Turner opted for a grand piece in black and lime green. Both she and her hubby look extremely pleased.
Turner got away with practically anything, and she looks absolutely amazing despite the numbers she is reaching; however, wearing a Giorgio Armani doesn’t guarantee awesomeness. Tina, you were stunning, and most women in the world would pay to look like you did even when they were younger.
More Questions Than Answers
So many questions can be asked about this picture, and unfortunately, we will not have the answer to most. We promise to do our best. Why is there a beach hat on the bride's head? What kind of bride wants to have something shading her face like that during her big day? Is the ribbon supposed to be there? Why was this photographed?
What was the designer thinking when he put fabric to pencil? The few things we do know, however, are that this is taken from a 1980s catwalk (which explains everything) and it's from a spring and summer collection (don't ask).
Either the designer was feeling extra generous that day, or he got a bit confused measuring the size of the earrings. Or is that her headpiece? What other explanation do you have for what we are looking at? We're a little confused, and we know you are, too.
Is it just we, or has this bride taken it all the way with those two white things on her head? We understand that during the 1980s, fashion trends were different; however, there's different, and there is this! Could it have been the designer's love letter to Princess Leia and her space buns?
“Why do you wear blue?" "It will bring out my blue eyes!” "But a traditional wedding dress should be white, and they will see your beautiful blue eye anyway." "I don't care; I am wearing blue." Said the bride to her mother, who insisted she wear traditional white.
And so ends the story of the young bride, who didn't listen to anyone but herself and wore a blue dress on her wedding day. What happens next? We will have to wait and see. Our guess is she lived happily ever after doing her own thing, living life to the fullest with her one true love.
Do You See Me?
Most brides want to stand out at their weddings, but it looks like this one is all about blending in. She has no reason to be the gorgeous lady in white, and she is all for supporting the troops. Maybe she has a military background; maybe she believes camouflage and matching patterned uniforms and dresses will never go out of style.
So many maybes, and only one thing for sure. We can come to terms with the choice of dress and color this bride chose, but wearing a military uniform on your big day doesn't mean you can't wear a smile, too.
