Ivy Getty Wedding Ceremony
According to Vogue, heiress Ivy Getty wore a stunning four-layer garment made entirely of broken mirrors to her wedding ceremony on Thursday.
Ivy Getty, the 26-year-old great-granddaughter of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, who was once Vanity Fair’s wealthiest man, married photographer Tobias Engel at San Francisco’s City Hall.
According to Vogue, the high-profile wedding had Anya Taylor-Joy as maid of honour and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officiating the ceremony. Getty wore two custom-designed gowns by John Galliano for Maison Margiela: a mirrored gown for the ceremony and a pink tulle gown with an aquamarine choker for the reception.
Galliano told Alexandra Macon of Vogue that the original wedding gown featured four layers: a full corset suited to Getty’s skin tone, two layers of tulle dresses, and a final layer of mirror fragments.
“A large portion of the garment is made of genuine mirror, but because she must walk in it, we developed a substance that evokes genuine mirror but weighs significantly less,” Galliano explained, adding that “the fragments are connected with wire, much like jewellery.”
Getty congratulated Galliano and Maison Margiela on Monday in an Instagram post, writing, “for creating the two most stunning wedding gowns I have ever set eyes on.”
“I am very appreciative to have been able to see the love, true creative worth, and care that you put into creating all of my gowns and wedding party gowns,” she wrote. Galliano partnered with Louboutin to create two pairs of heels to match her bridal gowns, according to Getty.
Getty told Vogue that she was inspired to commission Galliano to make the designs by her grandmother, who died in 2020.
“My grandmother was usually dressed in John Galliano,” she explained. “Following the death of my grandma — who was more like a mother to me — I felt this connection to John. I knew I wanted him to design my wedding gown.”
According to Vogue, her wedding design for the event included additional tributes to Getty’s grandmother, her father, John Gilbert Getty, who died in 2020, and Galliano himself. Galliano embroidered walnuts onto Getty’s veil, a reference to the matriarch’s upbringing on a walnut farm, and her sapphire engagement ring is encircled by diamonds from her grandmother.
Getty said that her veil was also embroidered with guitars in honour of her musician father and elephants in honour of Galliano.
“I was kidding with John, and he told me I could put anything on the veil—’even dancing elephants’! I knew immediately that I had to incorporate dancing elephants on my veil as a tribute to John “Getty said to Vogue. “My veil encapsulates the people and events that brought me here.”
