Failing to opt for an eco-responsible wedding dress, the stars no longer hesitate to recycle it, and it is easy to understand this choice. If for many, the wedding represents a magical moment, absolutely unique, this does not mean that we should relegate our bridal outfit to the back of the closet forever, after having worn it only once, on D-Day. In the era of green fashion and responsible consumption, the wedding dress is given a new life !
A trend brought up to date thanks in particular to Sarah Jessica Parker, in the guise of Carrie Bradshaw. On the images of the second season of And Just Like That – which will be released next month – we saw the main interested party, in her famous Vivienne Westwood wedding dress. Only, this time, the protagonist wears it with a turquoise coat, gloves and other accessories, for a “casual” outing. It was enough to revive the debate. On this subject, the famous costume designer Molly Rogers, declared to our colleagues from the New York Times “ by putting on their wedding dress, women want to relive happy memories of a day when they were queens “.
Queen Camilla sets herself up as a precursor of the movement
It is a fact, each wedding dress mobilizes a lot of time and very often, a considerable budget. Many therefore see it as a ‘waste’ to wear it only once. It is in pursuit of this idea that Queen Camilla recycled one of her Robinson Valentine bridal outfits at Royal Ascot in 2011, seven years after her marriage to King Charles III. By wearing her wedding dress a second time, during an official outing, the queen proves that all you need to do is accessorize this strong piece a little differently to give it a second youth.
Undisputed queen of recycling, Keira Knightley dipped into her closet to dress up on her wedding dayin May 2013. The British actress thus raised without flinching a Rodarte dress already worn at the BAFTA ceremony in 2008, which she continued to put on afterwards. As for Kate Bosworth, she created a buzz at the Met Gala 2018 by arriving in her sumptuous wedding dress Oscar de La Renta. A magical outfit, which she had chosen for her wedding in 2013 with Michael Polish.
A surprising scene, which we were able to relive at the Met Gala 2022 thanks to Emma Stone. The actress of Crazy, Stupid, Love also appeared in her feathered Louis Vuitton wedding dress. An outfit worn two years earlier to marry Dave McCary but which lent itself perfectly to the theme imposed that year: “ Gilded Glamor and White Tie “.
