One year ago today Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot in a lavish ceremony in Florence, Italy. It was an iconic moment in pop culture (the most anticipated "I Dos" since the royal wedding), on social media (most liked Instagram of all time) and in the fashion world.
Because after months of speculation over every aspect of the bridal gown, the style world uttered a collective "Yaaas!" upon seeing the lace Givenchy gown created by the pair's close friend Riccardo Tisci.
Probably Kim's dreamiest look to date, the custom-made dress featured handmade lace work, sheer paneling and a silk cathedral veil that created a truly swoon-worthy finish. Props to the rapper for not getting weak in the knees when she was walking down the aisle in this ensemble!
So how did this incredible collaboration come to be? Well, it was quite simple really. "In the beginning, I met her because of my respect for Kanye, and then I liked her a lot and we became friends," Tisci told Details. "When they got married, they asked me to dress them. They say, 'You've always been with us. You've been a real friend.'"
Riccardo—who once called Kim the "[Marilyn] Monroe of our age"—also shared that he got a lot of flak over his relationship with the power couple. But thanks to moments like the wedding: "Every designer is dying to dress her now."
But really, when it comes to opinions, the only one that really matters is the bride's. So what did Kim think of her gown?
"I am so excited for how my dress turned out, it is gorgeous. Everything is so perfect. It is probably the most beautiful dress I have seen in my life. It is really a dream come true," she shared on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
And so, this fashion moment lived happily ever after. Just like Kimye.
