Paging Jessica Biel: we’ve found your wedding dress.
Tuesday, Romanian design house Andree Salon unveiled a couture wedding gown with a 1.85-mile-long train — a world record-setter. The train took 100 days to create, a spokeswoman for the designer tells the U.K.’s
, and required the meticulous work of 10 seamstresses. It’s made of pricey lace imported from France, plus taffeta sourced from Italy.
To flaunt the gown, Andree Salon hired a 17-year-old model to wear it — and in some photos, dangle the train from atop a hot air balloon over Romania’s capital, Bucharest.
The stunt was sponsored in part by the organizers of Bucharest’s 2012 biannual Wedding Fair. Tell us: Did your wedding gown have a train?
