Most women’s wedding dresses end up in an attic, or perhaps tucked under a bed — but Gwen Stefani is not your typical bride. The singer and fashion designer tells Elle U.K. that her one-of-a-kind Christian Dior gown, created by embattled designer John Galliano, is heading to a permanent home in the Victoria and Albert Design Museum in London. “I didn’t wanna send it because I was scared it would get ruined. But it’s a work of art, it needed to be seen,” she tells the magazine. Stefani, who married rocker Gavin Rossdale in London in 2002, says Galliano made her wedding day dreams come true. “When I got engaged and someone told me that John said he would make my dress, I was like really?” she recalls. “I said I wanted it to be over the top, but not traditional — I wanted it to be everything. But how do you tell this genius over the phone?” Luckily, the designer listened to her wishes. “He was, like, OK, and sent me these drawings of this unbelievable, perfect dress.” –Kim Peiffer

When my 28 year old daughter first saw this dress 9 years ago, she was amazed … it was the most beautiful dress she had ever seen! To this day, she is still talking about it! A museum is a wonderful way to display this gorgeous one-of-a-kind creation. Amy (my artsy daughter) will be getting married next year, and I pray we can find someone locally to copy this work of art for her special day!
