When actress, model, and heiress Lydia Hearst said “I do” to comedian and television host Chris Hardwick last weekend, she stunned loved ones with a dramatic bridal ensemble. Her unique gown, custom designed by Christian Siriano, featured a pink ombré layered tulle skirt, low back, long illusion sleeves, a sweetheart neckline, and gorgeous beading running the length of the dress, giving the bride a shimmering presence.

The couple, who met in late 2014, hosted a lively event that included many personal touches and various elements that meant something special to both Lydia and Chris. It’s clear that the bride – the great-granddaughter of William Randolph Hearst, the great American publisher and namesake of the famed Hearst Castle in California, and daughter of Patty Hearst –  has a certain effervescent style that transcends current wedding trends in favor of her particular taste. For brides looking to be inspired by Lydia’s wedding-day look, flip through our gallery above to view some hot dress designs fresh off the runway from New York Bridal Fashion Week 2016.
