Freaky or Fabulous? Dita Von Teese's Purple Vivienne Westwood Wedding Dress

Freaky or Fabulous? Dita Von Teese's Purple Vivienne Westwood Wedding Dress

Sadly (or perhaps not so sadly), the marriage between burlesque bombshell Dita Von Teese and Marilyn Manson ended, but the photos of her fabulous wedding gown have remained. Phew! Though I probably wouldn't dare to wear such an over-the-top Vivienne Westwood gown for my big day, everything about it matches Dita's unique style. It's certainly not white, has more taffeta than one person can handle, and to call it poofy would be an understatement. Still, it's fabulous beyond belief. What's your verdict — freaky or fabulous?

Well, my wedding dress was made of black velvet, black lace and burgundy brocade, so even if I didn't like her dress, I wouldn't have any place saying she shouldn't wear it :D As it happens, though, I absolutely LOVE it - what a GORGEOUS dress!!

I agree. It's definitely a combination. Freaking fabulous. I love that it is iridescent. I wouldn't chose it for my wedding, but it's pretty sweet.
