A gorgeous wedding dress is practically a given when a fashion guru ties the knot — and Louise Roe was certainly no exception! When the E! television host got married earlier this month in Windsor, England, she stopped us dead in our tracks with her to-die-for wedding dress — a lace, off-the-shoulder Pronovias gown that perfectly fit the feel of her romantic and classic British "I do's." Yes, Roe looked totally effortless in her fabulous wedding dress, however actually creating the couture dress was anything but. In fact, it was apparently the the most complicated dress Pronovias designer Hervé Moreau ever made!
With Bridal Fashion Week in full swing, Roe headed to Pronovias' Spring 2017 runway show over the weekend, where she shared with People magazine her own experience with the luxe line. "I was so specific," Roe said of her very first meeting with Moreau concerning her custom wedding dress. "Then Hervé looked at me and went, 'No.' I was like, 'But I am in fashion! I know what suits my body!'" But Roe was right to trust the expert when it came to her bridal style. "He said, 'No, try this,' and it was perfect," said Roe. "He knew me better than I did."

Although Roe shared that watching the couture designer sketch out her dream dress was "the most special experience of her whole life," even she wasn't immune to that quintessential wedding nightmare of not falling head-over-heels in love with her dress when she slipped it on for her first fitting. "I'm gonna be really honest, I got worried [when I tried it on at first]," the Front Roe author admitted. "And then someone said to me, 'No, no. That's normal bride behavior. Wait until they've done the final nips and tucks.' It's the tweaks that make [a] huge amount of difference." We couldn't agree more!
It ended up taking four trips to Spain — where the Pronovias studio is based — to perfect the dress and get Roe wedding day ready. And obviously Roe's classic lace wedding dress was SO worth the extra effort. "He said it was the most complicated dress he's ever made," Roe said of Moreau. "I was like, 'Well done, me!'" Bravo!
