Lily Collins shares photos of her divine wedding gown

See the breathtaking Ralph Lauren wedding dress in full.

The Emily In Paris star and now-husband, director Charlie McDowell were married last weekend at a Hot Springs retreat in Colorado, in a beautiful outdoor venue, and now Collins has shared photos from the day.

In her initial post, the actress shared an image of the kissing couple against a rustic wooden altar, presumably moments after the ceremony.

Collins confirmed the news of her nuptials on Instagram, sharing a series of photos of the pair from the wedding. And the dress was truly something.


For her “fairytale” ceremony, the 32-year-old wore an elegant long-sleeved, high-neck lace gown by Ralph Lauren, while the groom looked dapper in a retro velvet tuxedo. A hooded lace cape and cascading train in place of a traditional veil gave the gown an ethereal edge.

Her hair was swept back in an intricate chignon, while her makeup consisted of bold eyes, and a subtle, natural lip.


It’s one of the few bridal looks Ralph Lauren has created, with another famous one including Priyanka Chopra’s sheer, embellished gown.

“It’s my ultimate dream combination of Western Americana and British Victorian,” Collins said of her gown. “Carefully handcrafted over nearly 200 hours, every detail was perfect — from the Calais-Caudry lace to the Swarovski-beaded micro flowers and silk organza petals.”

“It’s the most beautiful, memorable gown I will ever wear and I couldn’t have imagined it any other way…”What started as a fairytale, is now my forever reality. I’ll never be able to properly describe how otherworldly this past weekend was, but magical is a pretty good place to start,” she wrote.

Collins has been dating McDowell since 2019, with the pair getting engaged in September 2020 after McDowell proposed while on a hike in New Mexico.
