Would You Wear Carrie's Wedding Dress from Sex and the City?

By April 7, 2009

Follow me on:

When Carrie Bradshaw chose her wedding dress in the Sex and the City movie, you knew it wouldn't be just any humdrum dress. She wore a fashion forward silk concoction designed by legendary designer and SATC costumer Vivienne Westwood. Though some thought Sarah Jessica Parker didn't quite fill out the top of the dress enough, most agreed that it was an incredible gown, fit for a princess. But until recently, brides who wanted to emulate SJP and Carrie had to travel to Westwood's London boutique and beg her to make them a copy of sorts.

Well, now there's no need for American brides to cross the pond. Three US boutiques have been chosen by Westwood to carry a replica of the gown, including the Charlotte, NC boutique Hayden Olivia. Of course, you'll still have to cough up a measly $15,000. Unfortunately a shorter, cheaper (and in my opinion cuter) version of Carrie's wedding dress was for sale on Net-a-Porter but sold out almost immediately.

What do you think? Worth 15 grand? Or not worth 15 cents?

*sigh* I wish I could even afford the $10,000 version of this dress. Most of the money is going to our venue, the Hotel Boulderado.

I’d never pay more than $500 (okay, maybe $1,000 if it was perfect) for a wedding dress, but it was beautiful. Minus that awful head piece!

I think I would try to find a more reasonably priced, similar version. I wonder how much the costume designer would charge a non-celebrity…I know, wishful thinking!

I’m really surprised! I thought that the dress Carrie chose as her wedding gown was really terrible. It didn’t flatter her at all. Perhaps it would look good on one of the women willing to shell out 15K. Just because the dress has a brand label, it doesn’t gaurantee that you will look good in it.
