The wife of British Prime Minister Boris Johnson Carrie Symonds chose for the wedding ceremony a festive outfit for 45 euros, writes WWD.
Symonds chose a dress by Greek designer Christos Kostarellos with a floral pattern. Such an outfit costs a decent amount of money and she decided to abandon the purchase in favor of renting for the day. In the end, the wedding dress cost Symonds 45 euros. She rented it on the My Wardrobe HQ portal.
However, not all netizens appreciated Symonds's choice. The controversy was caused by a photo of the couple, which was taken after the official ceremony in Westminster Cathedral. Unlike his wife, the prime minister preferred a more formal style of dress and posed in a white shirt, dark trousers, and patent leather shoes. Simonds dress seemed ridiculous to many, too loose, and also resembled a nightgown.
The couple's secret wedding ceremony took place on May 29 at Westminster Cathedral, the main Catholic church in England and Wales. Johnson became the first prime minister in 199 years to marry in office. A total of 30 guests attended the celebration, and it was led by Daniel Humphries, who christened the couple's son last year. After the official part of the ceremony, the wedding reception was held in the garden at 10 Downing Street.
Earlier, Princess Diana's children showed off her wedding dress for the first time in 25 years. They provided it for the temporary exhibition Royal Style In The Making. It is noted that an ivory silk dress with lantern sleeves, bows, and lace trim will be the main part of the exhibition. It is complemented by the longest train in the history of royal outfits: its length is 25 feet or 7.6 meters.
