We have a running joke at Vogue. Writing about how presidential campaign buttons are a fashion statement? Doing an article on the styling mistakes brides often make? The time Carrie and Miranda tried on those hideous dresses could work well. Rounding up nautical looks just in time for Fleet Week?

Vera Wang Wedding Dress- Celebrity weddings
Vivienne Westwood has celebrated the year anniversary of that famous Sex and the City wedding dress by creating a series of ready-to-wear pieces inspired by the look. The film saw Carrie Bradshaw swap an understated vintage skirt suit for a show-stopping voluminous gown by Westwood. The Cloud dress was first seen in the brand's Gold Label collection and was re-designed by the designer specifically for the character. The corset top was created in gold-backed ivory silk-satin duchess and the skirt from metres of ivory silk Radzimir taffeta, creating an exaggerated silhouette, nipped-in waist and a pointed sculptural bust. The brand has since launched the Wilma cocktail dress in three different styles and the Wilma corset, all made using the Wilma cutting system that Westwood used to create the original look.

It's been 10 years since the Sex and the City movie was released, but you're not alone if you're still not over the rollercoaster ride of emotions caused by spoiler alert Mr. Big abandoning Carrie Bradshaw outside their lavish wedding at the New York Public Library before finally re-proposing and marrying her in a much less over-the-top ceremony at city hall. Vivienne Westwood , apparently, is right there with you, as she has put the gorgeous gown Carrie wore on her ill-fated trip to the library on display at the brand's New York City flagship location in honor of the film's year anniversary. According to a post on the official Vivienne Westwood Instagram account, the dress, "arguably the most revered wedding gown in fashion history," will be on display until June 3. The post includes three pictures: one of Sarah Jessica Parker wearing the Cloud gown in character as Carrie Bradshaw, a sketch of the gown done by Westwood herself, and a shot of the dress being modeled on the runway ahead of its film debut.
