Kate Bock and Kevin Love Are Married: Behind the Scenes of the Bride’s Latest Wedding Dress Fitting at Ralph Lauren
Model Kate Bock walked down the aisle wearing a custom lace Ralph Lauren dress with a high neck, long sleeves and an open back to marry Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kevin Love at the New York Public Library this evening.
Three days earlier, the Canadian model, who has been a face of Ralph Lauren for many years, was at the brand’s flagship store on 72nd Street and Madison Avenue for her final wedding dress fitting.
Inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding day look, Kate’s dress took over 1,800 hours to make and was covered in more than two million beads that had been placed by hand and embroidered onto the bodice and sleeves as well. than on the trapeze skirt and the circular train. “The team at Ralph Lauren are true experts, and I had so much fun working with them to create something classic, elegant, and a perfect fit with our wedding theme,” Kate said. . “I was inspired by Grace Kelly’s lace dress and we created a modern beaded dress that totally matched my style.” Kate completed her look with a dramatic veil, also from Ralph Lauren, which was 1.5 meters long.
Event planner Marcy Blum was on hand to lend her expertise and provide levity and laughter. “This veil is going to give me a heart attack!” Marcy joked as it was affixed to Kate’s head so everyone could see the full look and the bride could take portraits on the marble stairs. “It’s the longest veil in the world, it goes all the way to the outer boroughs!”
Once the seamstress had made her final adjustments, the discussion turned to where the dress would be stored until time for the ceremony. Marcy was quick to chime in with a quip: “It’s the heaviest dress in the world…it would take a lot of people to steal that dress!” And with that, Kate carefully slipped out of the lace dress and she was put back inside her hanging bag and carried away before the bride could care too much – she was at the gate and on her way to get her license of marriage.
