Dior Reveals The Making Of Song Hye Kyo’s Wedding Dress

And what netizens really thought of the gown.

When Australian model Miranda Kerr wed Snapchat CEO Evan Spiegel in July 2017, she donned a fairytale wedding dress created by Dior Haute Couture.

“I think it’s every girl’s dream to have Dior design her wedding dress,” said Kerr.

South Korean actress Song Hye Kyo was definitely with her on that one.

In one of the most anticipated weddings of the year, when Descendants of the Sun co-stars Song Hye Kyo and Song Joong Ki got hitched, Song walked down the aisle in a Dior Haute Couture wedding dress too.


Haute couture is fashion at its most luxurious. Every seam and every detail, right down to the every single stitch, is executed with the utmost care by highly skilled seamstresses and tailors at the ateliers of famed fashion houses in Europe.

A Dior couture dress, like the one actress Nicole Kidman wore to the Cannes Film Festival this year, can take over 1,000 hours to make. For couture, prices start anywhere from $10,000 for day wear and gowns cost an astronomical sum — we’re talking hundreds of thousands of dollars depending of the intricacy of the dress.

Made in Paris, Song’s dress was designed by the brand’s artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, who also took the actress’ preferences into consideration, along with inspiration from Dior’s Fall/Winter 2017 haute couture collection.  

Here’s a look at the making of the dress, which featured luxury Mikado silk with lace embroidery.



In an Instagram post, Dior also shared an image with the caption, “If you can imagine it, they can make it”. 

We thought the long-sleeved, square-neck gown was a conservative but elegant choice. But on South Korean site Seoul Econ via Nate, netizens thought otherwise.

“The dress she wore at the award ceremony was prettier...but it’s Song Hye Kyo, she looks good in whatever.”


“The dress emphasises her flaws...it’d look better on someone with a longer neck and more feminine shoulders. Still, her face made up for it.”

“For a dress worth so much, I didn’t think it was that pretty.”

“Her dress was below my expectations.”


Whether the public liked her dress or not, we think what's important was that the bride looked impossibly radiant in it — and that makes it a great choice in our book.
