Sophie Turner’s Louis Vuitton bridal gown took more than 350 hours to assemble.
The 23-year-old actress – who is a brand ambassador for the luxury French fashion brand – debuted the stunning floor-length wedding dress, which featured a discreet cut-out back, a flower-embroidered tulle and long lace sleeves, during her second nuptials to Joe Jonas in France last weekend, which was in front of their family and friends.
According to WWD, Turner’s dress took over 350 hours to execute and was constructed at Louis Vuitton’s flagship store in the Place Vendome, Paris, and the gown’s intricate details were posted by the label’s artistic director, Nicolas Ghesquiere, on Thursday (04.07.19) who simply captioned the photo of the newlywed: “Absolut beauty @sophiet ”
Sophie’s dress also featured different panels that were embroidered with 50,400 crystal beads and 50,400 white beads, and the star had more than 10 of the fashion houses’s embroiderers on hand to work on the 14 meters of tulle for a total of 1,050 hours.
The ‘Game of Thrones’ star – who first married the ‘Sucker’ hitmaker in a whirlwind ceremony in Las Vegas in May – teamed her dress with a sultry veil that required 48 hours of embroidery and a white draped belt to complete her look.
Joe and the groomswen – which included his two brothers Nick and Kevin – all donned Berluti tuxedos, which were designed by Kris Van Assche.
The couple’s wedding ceremony in Sarrians has been described as a “perfect fairy tale”.
A source said: “Sophie and Joe knew the moment they decided to tie the knot in Vegas that they would do it ‘right’ the second time around. They both are spontaneous and loved their Vegas wedding but there was never a question as to if they would get married ‘properly,’ as they referred to it, later in the year.
“They just needed to plan so they could create a perfect fairy tale, which is what they did. Sophie wanted to have a very traditional, almost royal wedding and never ever considered wearing anything but white. France was the obvious choice for both of them because they felt it’s not only truly beautiful, but also an ideal spot in the summer for everyone to come together.”
