Wedding Week continues with a look at our favorite most fashionable weddings. And given that it’s royal wedding week, there’s no way we could leave out “the king of couture,” Balenciaga! The couturier dressed his friend and future queen, Doña Fabiola de Mora y Aragón for her fairy tale wedding to Europe’s most eligible bachelor, circa 1960, 30-year-old King Baudouin I of Belgium. Here’s a snippet from the Story Behind the Styles on the royal match: “There are no written accounts of bets being placed on which couturier would design Fabiola’s wedding dress. This is because only one designer was likely ever considered for the job. Cristóbal Balenciaga had three things going for him: He was a friend of the family (he designed the bride-to-be’s first formal ball gown), Spanish and, not unimportantly, one of the top couturiers of the era, right up there alongside Christian Dior and Pierre Balmain. …150 million people tuned into… watch a very nervous Fabiola parade from the palace to the church. The fidgeting bride struggled with her train twice. Once she came close to tears as the yards of tulle caught on a chair during the civil ceremony, but was reassured by the whispers of her new husband.” Read the whole story about the wedding, the Dress and what Balenciaga did next, here.
