In any wedding, the bridal gown is definitely one of the event’s highlights. Yesterday, Multimedia Star Toni Gonzaga surprised everyone when she appeared wearing a simple mermaid-cut dress devoid of jewels and sparkly add-ons expected of a celebrity bride.  Netizens had varying opinions on her look. Some find it classy, elegant, and representative of the bride’s personality while others think that a more elaborate ball gown similar to ones she uses during hosting stints would have been more fitting.

To those who loved the gown, we’re giving you a closer look at this specific design in American designer Vera Wang’s line.  Toni’s dress falls under the 2011 Classic Bridal collection and according to Wedding Republic, the original price of the Gemma dress is US$8,000. Based on online reports, a dress of similar design was worn by Hollywood actress Hilary Duff.

We loved how Toni or her stylist (hehe) opted to have the bow at the back instead of in front like in the product shot.
