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

Your maiden name is just your father’s name, so what’s the point?

My dear Read Before You Type, you might want to take your own advice. The “Lauren Lauren” refers to the fact that Ralph Lauren’s son is marrying a woman whose first name is Lauren. That would make her name Lauren Lauren. Read the article.

Personally….I loved the gown until I got down to all that “stuff” at the bottom. I understand why it was done but, for me, it takes away from the simple eligence of the gown and the bride. She is beautiful and should not have allowed anything to detract from the beauty of the main portion of the gown in its symplicity and her natural beauty.

The gown is beyond beautiful, It is breathtaking.

I love the ruffles on the mermaid skirt… what I do not like on any garment is the strap plus a dropped cap sleeve… one or the other but not both….

Stunning dress, beautiful bride. Congratulations, Dylan….and, Dad, well done!

I watched the Lauren family’s interview w/Oprah & was so impressed. They’re an ultra-rich bunch but weren’t snobby or anything…a very down-to-earth and close-knit family. Best wishes to Dylan!


The dress…and Dylan are just gorgeous.

Appears his daughter-in-law will be Lauren Lauren.

My sister-in-law is Kelly Kelly. She married my brother, John Kelly.
