Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker exchanged vows over the weekend in a lavish ceremony in Portofino, Italy, and, true to Kardashian form, her fashion — a lingerie-inspired corset dress paired with a dramatic veil, both designed by Dolce & Gabbana — made headlines.
The designers shared on Instagram that her veil was hand-embroidered using a cross-stitch technique to create the oversized Virgin Mary and the words “family loyalty respect,” a nod to her husband's tattoos. Floral lace appliques, inspired by Portofino flowers, trimmed the edges.
While the outfit is usually what plays centerstage, Kourtney shows just how much weight accessories can carry, and how a single statement piece can elevate an entire outfit.
