Jasmine Tookes’ wedding fashion: the supermodel married Snapchat exec Juan David Borrero in an extravagant lace gown inspired by Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco
Supermodel Jasmine Tookes tied the knot over Labour Day weekend, on September 4.
Tookes married Snapchat executive Juan David Borrero in Quito, Ecuador, as Borrero is the son of the vice-president of Ecuador.
“I wanted him to make my dress from the moment I walked in his first couture show,” Tookes told Vogue.
As Tookes shared on her Instagram story, she drew inspiration for her wedding dress look from Grace Kelly.
Her wedding dress was designed by Helen Rose. The bodice had long sleeves and a high neckline that were all covered in delicate lace. The lace bodice flowed into a simple skirt with a dramatic train.
The dress, which had 368 metres (400 yards) of ivory faille and silk net, cost US$65,200 at the time, which would be over US$620,000 today.
Like Kelly’s gown, Tookes’ wedding dress had a lace bodice with a high neckline and long sleeves.
The gown clearly looked like Kelly’s. Murad designed the top of the bodice to be sheer, bringing modernity to the lace design, and it had a keyhole back.
Like Kelly, Tookes wore a large skirt with an oversized bow on the back. However, her skirt was removable, so she could have a sleeker look at the reception.
“I sent him my inspiration, and he drew up the most beautiful and timeless dress that I have ever seen,” Tookes told Vogue of how Murad’s design turned out.
The removable skirt’s train was 4.5 metres (15 feet long).
Tookes paired the timeless look with a lace-trimmed veil, which was even longer than her train.
Photos showed Tookes in both the larger skirt and the formfitting lace skirt that she wore underneath.
“Still can’t believe I’m living in a real life fairy tale with you,” Tookes captioned a photo of the wedding dedicated to Borrero on Instagram.
