See Dylan Lauren's Wedding Dress — Designed by Dad!

When Dylan Lauren first saw her wedding dress, designed by her famous father, Ralph Lauren, she was speechless. “I may not take off the dress after the wedding,” Dylan joked to Oprah Winfrey during a family interview in May. “I told my fiancé I may sleep in it, I may wear it the next day. It’s really beautiful. It’s stunning.” Now we get to see it, too: the August issue of Vogue includes a feature on Dylan and hedge fund manager Paul Arrouet’s June 11 nuptials in Bedford, N.Y., complete with a photo of the dreamy gown. But creating the dress wasn’t so easy for Dylan’s esteemed designer dad. After consulting with wife Ricky, as well as Dylan, Ralph went through “a few drawings” in hopes of pleasing the bride. “Ricky looked at the first drawing and said, ‘Ralph, that’s not Dylan. I think she should have this and should have this,'” Ralph told Winfrey. “Nothing was perfect.” Indeed, the pressure was certainly on. “I had to do something that was better than ever before,” Ralph said. “That’s the only daughter I have. I wanted to just give her something that she’d really treasure, give her something that would be really amazing, and I wanted her to feel fantastic.” It seems that mission was accomplished. But Ralph doesn’t get to rest just yet; he’s currently designing the wedding dress of his daughter-in-law-to-be, FEED founder Lauren Bush. –Kate Hogan

When your dad is a famous designer, the dress better be damn stunning. Isn’t that expected?! As if she’d go with somebody else designing the dress. it’s hard to tell from this photo but simple classic lines are what Ralph Lauren is known for. As long as the bride was happy, that’s all that matters.

It looks very uncomfortable. Just fabric twisted around her. I use to do that with my Barbie dolls.

Read before you type on

Just so people understand — Ralph Lauren’s daughters name is Dylan and her Mom’s name is Ricky. Your comments therefore make no sense.

Yes, the dress is absolutely beautiful and very elegant.

Read before you type on

Ralph Lauren’s DAUGHTER got married and her name is Dylan. He designed the dress for her. Ricky is her Mom. More traditionally those are male names but if you read correctly you’ll see that they’re both girls. Before typing a rude or silly comment perhaps you should learn how to read first.
