Spanish Chantilly Lace Mantilla Wedding Veils

Movie actress Grace Kelly will remain one of the most famous brides of all time. Her marriage to Prince Rainier III in Monaco in 1956 is still remembered to this day. Academy Award-winning designer Helen Rose created Kelly's gown and was constructed by the MGM wardrobe department as Helen Rose had also created previous costumes for Kelly in a number of her movies. In style and detail the dress was a bell-shaped skirt of ivory peau de soie supported by three petticoats. The dress featured a high-necked bodice of Brussels lace which was re-embroidered so the seams of the lace would be invisible. Her gown featured a delicate rose point lace, which is a type of nineteenth-century Brussels needle lace which featured elaborate floral motifs. This lace formed the bodice and appeared seamless as the lace motifs were detached from their original location and pieced together to follow the shaping of the dress. The lace of her gown, as well as her prayer book, shoes and cap were also accented with seed pearls.

The circular silk net veil was designed so that her face could be seen, instead of the typical veils which are gathered in the front. The veil was decorated with appliqued lace motifs including two tiny love birds. Her crown-like lace headpiece framed her face, while her veil was simply draped over her head giving. Grace Kelly's wedding ensemble is simple but exquisitely detailed. Recently, Bride Ivanka Trump followed after the classic looks of Grace Kelly, wearing a high neck lace gown, with a soft 40's style waved hair. Her look was simply elegant. Some of the prettiest veils today are the vintage Chantilly lace mantilla veils.  You can find some mantilla veils which are blushers, and others which are shawls.  They are designed to have no bunches in the overall look, which gives a sophistication, as well as an old fashioned Spanish elegance.
