Hilary Duff was determined for her wedding dress to have a “clean and simple” structure.
The Younger actress tied the knot with music star Matthew Koma at their Los Angeles, California home on Saturday.
Hilary shared the first image of her stunning Jenny Packham dress on social media on Sunday, and in a video for Vogue.com, explained that she had a very specific vision in mind for her big day.
“I feel really comfortable and I feel it’s everything I dreamed of. The shoulders are so exciting to me. It’s really what I wanted. It has structure but it’s clean and simple. I knew that I wanted something modern,” the 32-year-old shared. “The end result of what we came up with Jenny and my gown is exactly how I wanted him to see me and how (Matthew) would envision what I would look like as a bride – not some big pouffy, beaded thing – it (had to be) very gorgeous but toned down.”
Hilary’s dress was custom-made for her in London. The ensemble was made from a stretch ivory crepe and featured a fishtail skirt, cape-like sleeves as well as 100 buttons on the back.
And the star knew Jenny was the perfect designer for the job when she first began consulting with her longtime stylist Jessica Paster.
“I sat down with my stylist, Jessica Paster, and we went through many designers and looked at their aesthetics, and together we settled on Jenny,” she noted, before Jenny added: “It’s quite a bold look, and more than anything, I wanted her to feel immensely confident in it. It is a very confident look.”
Hilary and Matthew announced their engagement in May after more than two years of dating. They welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Banks Violet Bair, in October 2018. Banks is a sibling for Hilary’s son Luca, seven, from her previous marriage to former professional ice hockey player Mike Comrie.
