Viktor and Rolf's Spring 2012 collection's last piece was this seamy little number. How does it strike you?
Because it's never been done before, Chinese bride Li Kuo wore a 110-pound wedding dress with a 520-meter-long (1,700 feet) train to her wedding in Beijing. She chose the number 520 because the numbers 5-2-0 are pronounced the same as "I love you" in the local dialect.
Might be just me, but seeing these long wedding trains always calls to mind a yard freshly toilet-papered by the neighborhood kids. Which is just about the least romantic thing in existence...
