Victoria Beckham's Wedding Dress Is Still Relevant 20 Years Later — Here's Why
Some of the absolute best wedding inspiration can be drawn from celebrity brides who said their "I dos" in decades past. Considering the '90s are back in a big way right now, it's only fitting to look toward the decade for not only your day-to-day dressing needs, but also for some vintage-inspired bridal looks. Victoria Beckham's wedding dress quickly became a defining style moment of the '90s, and it's bound to make for a memorable piece in 2019, too.
The 1999 nuptials of Posh and Becks (as the couple was known at the time) easily takes the cake for the dreamiest, most beautiful wedding of the decade. Sure, the fact that it took place in a castle, specifically, the Luttrellstown Castle located in the outskirts of Dublin in Clonsilla, certainly helps it secure a top spot. And when combined with the Robin Hood theme the couple chose for their decor, Beck's crisp white suit, and Posh's over-the-top ballgown and tiara, it becomes nearly impossible to rival with.
Beckahm chose to walk down the aisle of the Luttrellstown Castle in a now-iconic, champagne-colored Vera Wang ballgown that, 20 years later, is still hanging in her closet — and for a very special reason. The designer's '90s wedding dress featured a strapless, super-fitted bodice, a sculpted neckline, and a long, voluminous skirt that extended into a 20-foot-long train. It was certainly something.
Though the gown she chose for her nuptials seems nothing like what Beckham would wear today (she prefers a much more minimalist dressing approach nowadays), she wasn't ready to part ways with it yet, once revealing that she hopes to pass it down to her daughter, Harper Beckham.
Beckham's beauty look deserves mention, too, even though it was inherently simple, a decision she likely made because her gown was already so statement-making on its own.
The designer went the natural route, opting for barely there eye makeup, with just a touch of silver in the inner corners, and a subtle swipe of a soft-pink gloss on her lips. As for her hair? Back in the '90s, Beckham still rocked her signature, choppy pixie cut, styling it piece-y and spiked for the ceremony. The final touch, of course, was an 18-karat gold tiara that truly made her look like royalty.
