Blushing brides: Kim Kardashian vs Poppy Delevingne

The only wedding I’ve written about on The Importance of Being Oreo was the royal wedding and that most beautiful Alexander McQueen by Sarah Burton wedding dress.

But I can’t pass the opportunity to speak about the wedding of the year and that bespoke Givency wedding dress.

That’s right, the Kimye wedding. I’m only slightly ashamed to admit I watch The Kardashians, who gives a toss, it’s insane, crazy, mental, and a funny insight into the world’s vainest family. What’s not to love?!

There’d been mounting speculation on the designer Kim Kardashian would pick to make her fifth wedding gown, that privilege was awarded to fashion BFF Ricardo Tisci. The Givenchy designer made up for his Met Gala floral catastrophe with an undeniably exquisite lace confection complete with a cut out back – well it is Kim Kardashian after all…

With all the hoopla over the Kim Kardasian and Kayne West wedding in Florence, another celeb wedding was able to go pretty much under the radar. Although to be fair Poppy Delevingne had already wed her new hubby James Cook in London on May 16th, she had a second wedding in the gorgeous setting of Marrakech with a few of her closest and coolest celeb friends in attendance.

Poppy Delevingne had already stunned in a Chanel creation but managed to go even more hippyish with her second dress by designer and close friend Peter Dundas. The Emilio Pucci creative director fashioned a boho wedding dress for Poppy featuring floral appliques and that seemingly popular tunic style feature which turned into a super huge skirt. The temperatures in Marrakech are currently in their 30s so I’m guessing she had a bit of a sweat on carrying that about!

What I pose to you dear readers. Which dress do you prefer? Kim Kardashian’s Givenchy couture creation, classic with a modern twist? Poppy Delevingne’s first wedding gown, a heavily embellished Chanel dress and her retro side-parted hair or her second boho Pucci dress very much in keeping with the bride’s hippy personality.
