Us Magazine reports that the sultry model wore a total of three Vera Wang dresses for her special day. Teigen wore an ivory strapless open back V-neck ball gown for the ceremony, and an ivory strapless mermaid gown for the reception. She then changed into a crimson strapless mermaid gown that had an inverted flange skirt adorned with crystal embroidery.
E! Online posted pictures of the sophisticated ceremony and Teigen’s flawless gown. In deciding what kind of dress to choose, Teigen said she didn’t “want anything too satiny, shiny or crazy. I'm not going to be that ball gown girl at all. I don't want to shock the guy coming down the aisle. I just want to be myself."
Teigen also revealed to E!’s Fashion Police that she would be going commando underneath her gorgeous gown. She didn’t want anything between her and her wedding dress. About the ceremony Teigen said, “I'll tell you this—the ceremony will be short." Overall Legend and Teigen had a glamorous wedding. Congratulations to the newlyweds.
