Alizée Thevenet wore her stepmother Carole Middleton’s new wedding dress for her big day

When Alizée Thevenet married James Middleton this summer, she did so in a very special dress, which also served as a loan. The bride walked down the aisle in a dress that actually belonged to her stepmother Carole Middleton, who wore the dress on her wedding day in 1980.

Thevenet explained that not only did she love the dress when she tried it on, but that she wanted to give it new life, rather than buying something new to wear for just one day.

“My borrowed something was actually my dress from my mother-in-law Carole who last wore it 41 years ago on her wedding day in June 1980,” she told Hello! “While talking about dresses with Carole and sharing ideas during the lockdown for inspiration, I tried on her wedding dress and fell in love with it.”

“It suited me perfectly and was exactly what I wanted. It always bothered me that wedding dresses were only worn once, so it was amazing to give a second life to such a beautiful dress. ‘

The dress in question was as casual and understated as the wedding. It was an off-the-shoulder style with beautiful brocade details and a loose fit.

The couple married at Bormes-les-Mimosas town hall on the French Riviera in September, before heading to a beachside reception, where they were surrounded by friends and family. , including James’ two sisters, Pippa and Kate.
