Princess Maria Laura of Belgium chooses elegance and a constricted waist with Vivienne Westwood

On Saturday, Princess Maria Laura (34) will give the yes to Willam Isvy (31) in Vivienne Westwood. Typically Westwood, the dress is one with historical references to bustiers and cinched-in waists.

When you say Vivienne Westwood, you may not immediately think of blushing brides. The now 81-year-old designer became world famous when the London Punk and New-wave made many fashion hearts beat faster. However, Princess Maria Laura of Belgium is not the first to choose a dress from the designer for her wedding to Willam Isvy. Numerous stars and influencers preceded her, Miley Cyrus when she gave the yes (albeit for a few months) to Liam Hemsworth, stylist Rachael Rodgers, but Julian Assange (like his bride Stella Moris) also wore a creation of her hand. Westwood is not only punk, but also drama and references to very classically constructed pieces, but in the Westwoods way: more modern, often naughty with the necessary sex appeal. Lots of corsets, lots of pushed up busts.

It was already known that Maria Laura was going to wear a Westwood dress. At around 3 p.m., the bride appeared in the cocotte dress and a dramatic four-meter train at the Cathedral of Saint Michael and Saint Gudula in Brussels. The dress is a classic example of the Westwood wedding collection. The construction of the dress is inspired by silhouettes from around the 18th century. Often with a built-in corset, over which the white fabric is draped.
