Carolyn Bessette wore a bias-cut silk crepe wedding dress complete with opera-length gloves at her September 1996 wedding to John F. Kennedy Jr. at Georgia’s First American Baptist Church. She asked close friend Narciso Rodriguez to create a minimalist look that ultimately launched his career, but (fun fact) the couple’s planners used fashion designer Nicole Miller’s name instead as a ruse to keep their wedding under wraps. And it worked! Check out of favorite look-a-likes above.
