Behind Miranda Kerr’s virginal Grace Kelly look to marry Evan Spiegel

When Miranda Kerr married Snapchat founder Evan Spiegel in May, she was 34 years old and a divorced mother of a 6-year-old son with movie idol Orlando Bloom.

But Kerr had another movie icon’s wedding gown in mind when she began working with Chiuri on the design: the famous long-sleeved, high-necked gown Grace Kelly donned when she married Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956.
