Jessica’s Simpson’s Wedding Dress — Carolina Herrera Speaks Out:
Jess got to meet with Carolina and actually design her own wedding gown with her — wow, that is every girl’s dream!
The two ladies shared the inspiration for the gorgeous gown in a behind-the-scenes vid from People, when Herrera points to an inspiration board and tells Simpson that she was inspired by a classic painting, Empress Elisabeth “Sissi” of Austria, by Franz Zaver Winterhalter.
“It reminds me of the way I want you to look. You told me before you wanted to be very regal. I thought this is fantastic for the whole idea,” Herrera said.
Simpson was obviously taken back and flattered as she replied: “I love that you’re inspired by a painting, it makes me feel special.” Wow, what an amazing experience for Jessica!
