Between the royal wedding, the spate of summer brides (Kate Moss, Lily Aldridge and Sofia Coppola, we salute you) and our editor’s well-blogged vows, the fantasy gowns were coming your way at an intense rate for most of 2011. But we know: it’s been awhile since we’ve had the excuse to share dreamy wedding photos on ELLEuk.com.
Here to top up your bridal quotient is Caroline Trentini. The model beloved by US Vogue married photographer Fabio Bartelt in their home country of Brazil over the weekend, in a couture-like creation by Theory designer Theyskens.
What with the sweetheart bodice, full skirt and long, lace sleeves, it’s difficult to escape comparisons to the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding gown. Trentini’s dress is lower-cut and the lace is more delicate than Catherine’s. Both brides wore jaw-dropping (yet tasteful) diamonds and ear-to-ear smiles, too. Which look do you prefer?
