Taylor Swift and Tommy Dorfman Redefine a Typical Bridesmaid Dress at Lena Dunham's Wedding
When Lena Dunham married musician Luis Felber at Soho's Union Club in London, she wore three custom Christopher Kane gowns and enlisted the Scottish designer to create bridesmaid dresses, too. It was important for Lena to have her closest pals in attendance at the 60-person reception, which was detailed exclusively to Vogue and photographed by Jonny Ruff. Taylor Swift, Tommy Dorfman, actor Myha'la Herrold, and more family and friends assembled as the bridal party, forgoing those classic, silk "getting ready" robes for beautiful floral dresses from The Vampire's Wife, which they'd then swap for the silver Christopher Kane midis that are nothing short of extraordinary.
Taylor's own design came with a gemstone waistband and shoulder straps, and Tommy's was a high-neck halter silhouette. The metallic pleated lamé fabric is signature for the Christopher Kane brand (as you'll see ahead), and made for quite the party look when teamed with glitter pumps. "With the bridesmaid dresses, we were doing a kind of Swinging Sixties, silver pleated, go-go girl energy, but one of my bridesmaids put it best when she said she felt like 'a beautiful cupcake wrapper,'" Dunham said.
Dorfman helped pull together some favors for the crew, including a Susan Alexandra pearl beaded butterfly bag, just to tap into the y2k accessory trend. Everyone wore their own choice of jewelry, like multiple playful rings and barrettes. While we didn't expect Dunham to go the conventional route when it came to planning her nuptials, we have to say we're most delightfully surprised by the bridesmaid outfits and their stylish trimmings.
