A new finding by fashion experts Karen Millen reveals that online interest in mini wedding dresses more than doubled the average volume in May after Sofia Richie’s wedding and bridal looks were worn by celebrities at the Met Gala, reflecting an unprecedented spike in searches as the mini bridal looks worn inspired brides-to-be for their big day. At one of the biggest celebrity weddings of the year, Sofia Richie wore a bespoke 1990s Chanel minidress for her reception inspired by a 1993 design worn by Claudia Schiffer. Bridal wear was a key trend at this year’s Met Gala, worn by many celebrities on the red carpet for this year’s theme: Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty. Online searches for ‘white dress’ shot up by 163 percent, rising to a five-year high, as white gowns trended this year. Chanel was one of the main labels to appear on celebrities this year. Dua Lipa wore a Chanel 1992 tweed wedding gown. Gisele Bündchen wore a vintage Chanel wedding dress and feathered cape, her first Met Gala appearance since divorcing Tom Brady.
