On the occasion of her 10th wedding anniversary, Victoria wore her pre-wedding Elie Saab gown in a official photo:







Gwyneth Paltrow wore the runway version a few months before Victoria first wore the dress:






Vic wore it better

Very much so.
I love the the picture of Vic with her hair down.
They have a marvelous photographer.

I loved this dress then and I love it now and with her hair down it's even better! Gosh she's a beautiful lady but she hides it with the tight buns and awful fashion choices.

I wish I liked it since it seems unanimously loved here.  I just can’t.  I hate the color and all the whatever - ruffles?  Not that she doesn’t have the body to rock the style, she sure does.  I will say I like her hair down with this dress MUCH more than the style she wore ten years ago.   That diamond arrow thing??   Oh man, I just think “hot mess“ when I see pictures from this event.  Her wedding look the next day made up for it.  😁

My favorite part of the look was that even with the beading, ruffles, and BIG jewelry the first thing you noticed was how happy Vic was.  The second thing was that the fit was on point...something that’s not always the focus when the design is so involved.

I think a new favorite.  It looks like they walked out of a children's fairytale.

I must confess - I was more interested in the Barnacle Geese, and their goslings. Smiley They must be extremely tame.

I keep trying to think when she wore this dress previously, could anyone help me out? When the photos were released I thought it looked familiar but I cant put my finger on how!

That picture of her standing next to the marble column is one of the best pictures of her ever. Perfectly composed, great color palette, gorgeous hair and especially gorgeous smile. And fits into her engagement dress!!

There’s just something about the blue dress that doesn’t work for me.  For the embroidered dress, I don’t think it would work well with a tiara.  The dress is enough on its own and even the little hair piece in the photo is just shy of too much jewelry.  The other two dresses work better with jewelry as their detailing is less pronounced but still more grand enough to be royal.

Queen's Tea, I think you've hit on something there - Vic's dress is not the same as the runway/Paltrow version - and I don't hate Victoria's dress but I prefer the runway version, the one without the additional tulle [or something] at the bottom.  Maybe Victoria asked for the something extra to make a bigger,  sweeping train.

I’ll have to go take another look at the runway version.  The only thing I noticed at a glance was the color seemed to be more beige and it seemed more “filmy” or sort of see-thru around the legs.  But I didn’t notice anything else.  I’m not sure - is the dress all tulle?  Or are there feathers mixed in?  When I zoomed in, I did like all the sparkly bits.  And as I said, she does rock it.  I actually liked Sophia’s engagement dinner dress better and that’s saying something lol!
