Nicky Hilton, Jennifer Aniston, Mila Kunis to Ashton Kutcher, Johnny Depp and Cameron Diaz all married this year.
Images of the normally photogenic celebs are not floated online or in magazines. Thankfully, famous socialite Nicky Hilton gave fans a glimpse of her amazing gown: an ivory guipure gown made by the House of Valentino has set the bar for the year.
What Is Guipure?
Guipure is a luscious and thick style of lace. It looks more like tightly knotted embroidery but the technique to produce it is still very much like bobbin lace.
With traditional lace, the use of flowers and leaves are generally the focus of the artwork. When guipure is made, the design often moves towards abstract patterns and shapes, which in turn gives it a modern finish.
A beautiful example of Guipure is here on this knee length gown by Oscar de la Renta.
