On this day in fashion history

In 2005, Melania Knauss, then-fiancée of billionaire Donald Trump, appeared on the February cover of US Vogue wearing her wedding dress. The white satin Christian Dior gown was made from 300 feet of material and embroidered with 1,500 crystal rhinestones and pearls. Estimated to have cost in the region of $100,000, it was thought to be one of the most expensive wedding dresses ever made. Knauss was advised to eat well before the wedding so she was strong enough to wear the dress and had to sit on a bench during the ceremony rather than a chair to cater for its volume.
