Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell, and More: 17 Spectacular Supermodel Brides On The Runway

Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Naomi Campbell, and More: 17 Spectacular Supermodel Brides On The Runway

Seeing a supermodel own the runway can be a breathtaking experience – let alone a supermodel dressed as a bride. Karl Lagerfeld famously closed his Chanel couture shows with bridal looks, worn by the likes of Claudia Schiffer, Alek Wek and Devon Aoki during his tenure. His successor, Virginie Viard, continued the tradition and cast Jill Kortleve and Vittoria Ceretti as couture brides for autumn/winter 2022 and autumn/winter 2019 respectively.
In the 1990s, Gianni Versace recruited his beloved supers to walk as brides in his finales. Naomi Campbell famously wore a sparkling minidress at the autumn/winter 1997 show and Kate Moss wore a dazzling disco ball dress to close autumn/winter 1995.
As one of the most in-demand models of the moment, Bella Hadid has been a bride several times in recent seasons. The super went viral as a dagger-wielding bride at Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood’s autumn/winter 2020 show, and she wore a purple gown at Versace’s recent spring/summer 2023 showcase.

15 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns From the Fall 2022 Haute Couture Shows

15 Gorgeous Wedding Gowns From the Fall 2022 Haute Couture Shows

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. If you’re currently planning your big day, there’s no way you haven’t already started thinking about all the special elements that will make your wedding day look one to remember. If you’re struggling with zeroing on the perfect bridal gown, however, a great place to look for some inspiration is on the runways of this season’s haute couture showcases.
The Fall 2022 shows had Alexis Mabille, Chanel and Dior making a case for pared-down bridal wear via pastel folk-style embroidery, universally flattering cuts (think mermaid silhouettes, high-low summer-ready hems, and sweet A-line pieces), and easy fabrics. While the strapless wedding-ready maxi at Chanel was topped off with a matching stole and ivory bow on the head, Dior’s models styled their romantic ensembles with barely-there makeup and soft low ponytails.
For the bride who’s up for a sartorial experiment, there was no missing Antonio Grimaldi’s sculpted silhouettes, which brought together unconventional necklines, cut-out detailing, and for accessories, jewels that ran from the top of the head down to the chin for that extra dose of drama. The not-so-basic bridal trend also found itself spotlighted on Rome’s Spanish Steps, where Pierpaolo Piccioli sent out a slinky white gown, complete with thigh-high slit, hidden metallic bustier, and black bows at the Valentino show. Over at Giambattista Valli, another conversation-starter piece was a feather-trimmed, semi-sheer bodycon number that enveloped the model’s shoulders in a larger-than-life snowy white bow.
Love it or hate it, there’s no denying the fact that the one bridal trend that never seems to fade away is the more-is-more gown—and Fall 2022’s haute couture shows serve as proof. At Zuhair Murad’s presentation, a sparkling strapless gown doused in stars closed the show, while Rami Al Ali added a little color to the mix with a blush pink sequined number trimmed with pleated ruffles. Elie Saab’s bride walked the runway in a gold gown complete with matching veil and embellished bouquet, Balenciaga presented an equally dramatic bejeweled gown in shades of ivory and silver, and Dolce & Gabbana replaced traditional veils with a headpiece that’s not for the faint-hearted.
