Karlie Kloss was overcome with emotion when she saw her Christian Dior wedding dress for the first time.
The model has shared a special behind-the-scenes video looking back at the making of her custom gown to celebrate her first year of marriage with Joshua Kushner.
“364 days later, the making of my beautiful wedding dress youtube.com/klossy,” she wrote alongside a black-and-white snap of her dress on Instagram.
The long-sleeved, lace gown was designed by Dior’s creative director Maria Grazia Chiuri – with input from Karlie herself – and took more than 700 hours of work to complete.
“When I was a little girl, obviously I always liked the idea of having a fairy tale wedding, but I never imagined I would have the chance,” the 27-year-old said in the video.
The footage shows the intricate process of the dress design, from the initial sketches she received to the first fitting in Paris and the final one in New York.
Karlie and her mother are visibly emotional when they see the gown for the first time in Paris, with the former Victoria’s Secret Angel openly weeping as she finally sees herself in the dress, which was made from delicate lace and had a long train and veil.
The blonde beauty wed Joshua on 18 October last year, and wore two gowns for the intimate celebrations which took place in Upstate New York.
Karlie also revealed that she wore flat shoes for her nuptials, because she wanted to “dance the night away, and I feel most happy in flats”.
Back in June, the couple threw a huge star-studded party in Wyoming to celebrate their marriage, with guests including Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Mila Kunis, Derek Blasberg, and Diane von Furstenberg.
