Blake Lively’s wedding dress designer speaks out

Marchesa designer Georgina Chapman opens up on creating Blake Lively's wedding dress

Last month we told you how Blake Lively married Ryan Reynolds wearing a Marchesa wedding dress, and now designer Georgina Chapman has spoken out about the actress’ involvement in creating the gown for her big day.

The Gossip Girl star wed the heart-throb Canadian actor in a hush-hush ceremony in South Carolina in September, walking down the aisle in a bespoke couture bridal gown featuring a hand-draped silk tulle bodice, decorated with intricate crystal and rose gold embroidery.

Marchesa co-designer Georgina, who founded the fashion label with fellow Brit Keren Craig, has now revealed that Lively was very hands-on during the design process.

Speaking at a party in New York to celebrate the launch of Marchesa’s collaboration with the NFL, she told Us Weekly: ‘We’re friends. It was wonderful to spend time with her. Blake has such an innate style.’

She added: ‘I’ve worked with her so many times and know her so well. [She] has a very clean sense of fashion…she was very involved.’

Blake, who also wore heels by her close shoe designer friend Christian Louboutin, and Ryan, who wore a Burberry suit, wed at the Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens in an intimate ceremony in front of close family and friends.

The couple began dating last year, after meeting on the set of 2012 film, the Green Lantern.

Now, if only they’d let us take a peek and release a wedding photo… here’s hoping!
