"I have been obsessed with the 1974 Bob Mackie dress that was worn by Cher to the Met Gala since the first time I saw it. It is, in my opinion, the most fabulous party dress every made. That dress had just the right amount of outrageousness and sexy, mixed with a dash of showgirl.... the kind of dress for when a girl needs to be the star of the night. And I loved that the original was worn on someone like Cher, who can pull off anything, who is never vulgar and has a very elegant body. It was exactly how I wanted to feel for the evening party of our wedding. I worked closely with the House of Schiaparelli to create a custom made, Haute Couture version inspired by Cher's gown and strove for a version that wouldn't feel like a copy but more like a modern interpretation of it."
