Over two decades ago, Alexander McQueen for Givenchy came up with this design for the 2000 spring-summer collection. We wish we knew what went through their heads at the time, as he must have had a little too much to drink on this specific day. Most importantly, we wonder if any bride in her right mind actually saw that dress and thought to herself, “Yes! That’s the one!”
This shows what happens when the spring-summer mosquitos and other summer bugs meet the dress and help themselves. Maybe they were able to use it as a canopy when they realized nobody was ever going to wear it.
We love Christian Dior. We love almost everything they come up with. After all, it IS one of the world's biggest fashion houses. However, when it comes to wedding dresses, maybe they should refresh their ideas. They can't be winners all the time, it seems. No one can.
We still don't understand the purpose of the skin-colored piece of fabric on the top part. Whatever the intention was, it didn't work. Our guess is that it was meant to be shapewear worn by the bride, which is good and well when the dress is designed to go OVER it. Even Dior needs to have things spelled out for them every once in a while.
The Queen Mother
Brides go with flowers, and flowers go with brides, but what happens when the designer goes a bit over the top and puts too much focus on the flowers and forgets that an actual person needs to be walking around in their dress? This is what happens. Some of the wedding gusts would think that was a little mixup with the flower arranger.
If you ignore the unflattering shoes and focus on the dress's design, you'll see that there were overall some good ideas there. However, when even Claudia Schiffer looks like she's too constricted to breathe, you know this wasn't designed for mortals.
We're not exactly sure what "flavor" of wedding would best suit this dress, but something tells us it belongs to a community somewhere far off the grid. We find it hard to believe that this would be the first choice for any bride.
Between that full-faced head covering and the table-like shape that is probably housing some sort of sacrificial platform (not to mention that embroidery,) this is not a wedding you want to be a part of. However, you do have to admit the work on this dress must have taken ages. This type of construction requires some mad skills.
All Corners of the Globe
Getting married is a momentous occasion that symbolizes the start of a new journey with your life partner; a long, long journey, one for enternity. In fact, if you were to measure your time together, it would be as long as this dress.
That's probably what this bride had in mind when picking out her dress. In order to truly show the lengths of her love for her new groom, she got a train to match. Or was that her veil? Either way, she's going to have a hard time not tripping over it as she walks down the aisle.
