When Dylan Lauren first saw her wedding dress, designed by her famous father, Ralph Lauren, she was speechless. “I may not take off the dress after the wedding,” Dylan joked to Oprah Winfrey during a family interview in May. “I told my fiancé I may sleep in it, I may wear it the next day. It’s really beautiful. It’s stunning.” Now we get to see it, too: the August issue of Vogue includes a feature on Dylan and hedge fund manager Paul Arrouet’s June 11 nuptials in Bedford, N.Y., complete with a photo of the dreamy gown. But creating the dress wasn’t so easy for Dylan’s esteemed designer dad. After consulting with wife Ricky, as well as Dylan, Ralph went through “a few drawings” in hopes of pleasing the bride. “Ricky looked at the first drawing and said, ‘Ralph, that’s not Dylan. I think she should have this and should have this,'” Ralph told Winfrey. “Nothing was perfect.” Indeed, the pressure was certainly on. “I had to do something that was better than ever before,” Ralph said. “That’s the only daughter I have. I wanted to just give her something that she’d really treasure, give her something that would be really amazing, and I wanted her to feel fantastic.” It seems that mission was accomplished. But Ralph doesn’t get to rest just yet; he’s currently designing the wedding dress of his daughter-in-law-to-be, FEED founder Lauren Bush. –Kate Hogan

Wow! Stunning dress and beautiful bride! Cannot wait to see the wedding photos! Sweet. I have 2 daughters of my own, and look forward to their weddings someday.

Yes, but his Daughter in Law to be.. Her first name is Lauren. If she takes the last name of Lauren, she’ll be Lauren Lauren. That’s what the other person was talking about.

how can a girl so famous for selling candy be so thin? I guess she only sells it, and doesn’t EAT it….darn willpower!

I never know if it’s proounced, “Lorin” or “Lor-en,” with an accent on the “en.” Lauren Lauren would be cute if they were pronounced differently:)
