CAIRO: Victoria’s Secret Angel and cover star Chanel Iman has just got married, but while most brides would be happy with just the one wedding dress designed by Zuhair Murad for their big day, Iman wanted more.

And so the Lebanese designer created not one, but two dresses for the supermodel to wear at her star-studded wedding, held at an iconic hotel in Beverly Hills.

The 27-year-old looked like she had just stepped out of a fairy-tale, donning a romantic tulle gown from the label’s Fall 2018 bridal collection for the ceremony.

The dress had a plunging neckline and an A-line skirt, topped with a silk tulle bolero which added a demure twist. The bride swept her hair up into vintage-inspired waves.

For the reception, the bride changed into another gown from the same collection that also featured bucolic detailing and a plunging neckline.

“I feel very lucky to have gotten married in one of his gorgeous creations,” Iman told Brides magazine.

“I never really envisioned wearing something like that for my wedding, but the moment we put it on, we all loved it. It was so chic and unusual but also felt a little vintage.”

Three months after her engagement, Iman tied the knot with American football star Sterling Shepard, in a star-studded wedding of friends and family, including Chrissy Teigen, Gabrielle Union, Joan Smalls, Shanina Shaik and Jourdan Dun.

In a perfect classic scene, the couple had a garden ceremony before heading indoors to a flowery ballroom reception.
