In 2009 world-renowned Mexican beauty Salma Hayek married her beau, who is a French billionaire and Kering CEO François-Henri Pinault, in her breath-taking wedding gown, which after a decade still takes stands as one of the most expensive gowns in the world.
To this date, this wedding gown’s design is unique and appealing to many soon-to-be brides. So let us dig deep and see what makes Salma Hayek’s wedding gown unique and beautiful.
Wedding Dress Designer
World-renowned designer Nicolas Ghesquière had the privileged of designing the wedding dress for Salma Hayek. At that time, he worked under the label of Balenciaga.
Wedding Dress Price
Salma Hayek’s husband, François-Henri Pinault, is one of the richest people in the world, so it was not a surprise that his wife chose to wear a custom bridal gown that cost a large chunk of change at $434,000.
Wedding Dress at Paris Wedding
42 years old Salma Hayek, and 46 years old Pinault exchange their vows in a small private ceremony in Paris’s sixth arrondissement town hall. This ceremony was only attended by the couple’s close friends and family.
Unfortunately, Salma kept this ceremony low-key, and she didn’t share any pictures of the wedding gown she wore that day.
Wedding Dress at Venice Wedding
Salma had her second wedding at La Fenice, a Venice opera house, with luxury mogul Francois Henri-Pinault.
Her marriage venue was one of the most expensive sites in the floating city, and the wedding arrangements followed the refined and extravagant taste of this newlywed couple.
So, it was obvious that her dress fulfilled the requirements of the extravagant wedding.
While most brides wear white for their wedding attire, she chose an ivory color gown that perfectly complemented her skin tone.
The wedding gown was full-skirt with a highly detailed embellished on its deep V-neck bodice gracefully enhancing her cleavage. The skirt was A-lined that flowed perfectly around her body.
Salma completed her looks with high heels and a long net veil tucked in her high bun. She decided not to wear a tiara as it was not going with her ideal bridal look.
Moreover, Salma chose a nude makeup look with her long ivory gown. For jewelry, she only wore long diamond earrings that kissed her neck with grace.
Like all the traditional brides Salma held a bouquet in her hand as she stood next to her husband. Her bouquet consisted of orchids and stephanotis flowers with small cute crystals to match the detailed work on her bodice.
