You’ve already swooned over the side view of Kim Kardashian‘s custom Givenchy wedding gown, complete with immense full veil and sheer-inset side cutouts. And we can now confirm that the dress looked as gorgeous going as coming, thanks to the stunning rear view of the full gown posted by pal (and Givenchy designer) Riccardo Tisci.
The designer — a longtime friend of the couple — posted the highly stylized photo to his Instagram, captioning it “Final friends fitting #biggestday #kimandkanye #love #paris #couturesalon @kimkardashian @givenchyofficial.” The back view gives a real sense of the drama of the gown, from the open back, inset with illusion netting and belted, to the full train, to the incredibly dramatic silk veil with a romantic lace edge. Tisci can be spotted on the edge of the photo, supervising the final fitting. (Kris Jenner posted the color version, which was nice of her!)
Tisci also posted a snapshot with the bride on her big day (below) that showed off the pearl-edged collar of her high-necked dress design — though later in the night, Kardashian did change into a low-necked dress design, also edged in pearls and gems, for a full night of dancing. And after seeing that truly dramatic train, we can see why the mini might have been necessary.
Thoughts on the gown? Do you love the rear view?
