Sam showed me a picture in a magazine that she loved,
of Nicole Kidman wearing an evening dress, at a launch of a film.
Sam just happened to be tall and slim like Nicole, however,
I used this photo as a guideline to design a halter neck bias-cut dress.
This slinky style was adapted into a wedding dress by adding a train
and by choosing a silver Chantilly lace over turquoise silk crepe de chine.
The bodice has been beaded in a random design in red, green and purple,
as a contrast to the turquoise.
The colours and shape of the dresses were similar to the celebrity’s photo,
but this dress became Sam’s, rather than being an identical copy of Nicole’s!
“This must be how a celebrity feels. You gave me a larger bust
and enhanced my best features and made me feel fantastic.” Sam
