Lena Dunham may have planned her wedding in a month, but she hasn’t skimped on her wardrobe.
The ‘Girls’ actress, 35, married musician Luis Felber earlier this month in a colorful London wedding at Soho’s Union Club, wearing a total of three dresses personalized by a close friend and fashion designer Christopher Kane, as documented by Vogue.
Dunham started the day with Sleeper’s green feather pajama pants ($ 290 with the matching shirt) to prepare for walking down the aisle. Meanwhile, the bridesmaids including Taylor Swift and Tommy Dorfman had their hair and makeup done in blue floral looks from The Vampire’s Wife before donning their metallic Christopher Kane dresses.
Dunham’s wedding decor and wardrobe was heavily inspired by iconic ’60s nuptials, including Sharon Tate’s wedding to Roman Polanski, Patty Boyd’s union with George Harrison and Yoko Ono, and the wedding of John Lennon, as well as June Carter Cash and Priscilla Presley’s looks for their big days.
The long-sleeved mini A-line she wore to the ceremony – along with her hair, makeup and bow veil – gathered all the references.
“Christopher said to me, ‘You look like you’re at a first communion or a Madame Alexander doll’, which I both liked too! Dunham spoke to Vogue about the final look.
She accessorized with white tights, Miu Miu stilettos, and an “L” pin in her hair, which was a giveaway.
Not to be outdone, the groom wore a custom blue suede suit designed by Emily Bode.
Dunham’s second look was a long satin dress with a high neck, slit sleeves and a ‘wild jewel detail that Christopher did a few collections ago that creates a frame around your torso. It’s both very opulent and very strange, ”she told the outlet. The star completed this look with a crown from Dolecka Bridal.
The third dress was a surprise from Kane that made the bride cry on her last fitting. “He painted our portrait on our wedding invitation with those glittery eyes and lips, and stuck it to the front of this gorgeous white silk A-line dress,” Dunham said.
“It was so beautiful and fun to wear, and so good for dancing because it was like a giant, chic tent.”
With such a unique wedding aesthetic, the rings were naturally also one of a kind. While Felber offered a Peruvian Inca ring from the early 1700s that belonged to his grandmother, Dunham designed his wedding rings with “a bouquet of multicolored sapphires”, inspired by Paloma Picasso’s work for Tiffany & Co.
Dunham wears her engagement ring on her pinky finger, as changing the size of the delicate antiquity was not an option; Felber’s wedding ring, meanwhile, fits more comfortably on his pinky finger while he’s playing guitar.
Page Six was the first to report the couple were dating in early June; Dunham herself confirmed the relationship a few days later, calling herself “the luckiest”.
