Chrissy Teigen shared an highly-anticipated photo of her wedding gown on her Instagram account yesterday, and we must say she looked nothing short of gorgeous!
The new Mrs. John Legend proved that bigger is better in a glamorous way with her ivory Vera Wang dress. The stunning strapless number was just one of three gowns she wore by the celebrity designer on her big day.
“The ceremony gown was an ivory strapless open back, V-neck ballgown with lifted tulle skirt and tiered flange, hand-cut petal embroidered detail,” Wang revealed in a statement. “The reception gown was an ivory strapless mermaid gown with micro pleated bodice and sheared organza full skirt.”
She added that the after-party gown “was a crimson strapless mermaid gown with hand-draped bodice and inverted flange skirt with embroidered crystal wheat detail.”
“Every time I went in [to Vera Wang] for a fitting, I couldn’t stop getting one,” the 27-year-old bride said during an interview with E! News. “It’s just too pretty.”
