She explained to UK’s Telegraph, “It’s now got red wine spilled down the front because the last time I wore it my friend knocked my arm and now it’s everywhere. I didn’t quite realize the extent of it until I got home. It’s quite impressively splattered. But, hey, a good night is a good night and when a dress has had its time, maybe it’s had its time. I’m pretty sure I can get it out but, if I can’t, I’m happy with the memory of a good night and the story of how the dress got destroyed.” She also revealed why she went with a previously worn dress for her big day as opposed to rip something fresh from the runway saying, “I’d worn the dress lots. It was my something old. And I liked not making a big deal about it. I just wanted to be in something I had had a great time in, something I would have a great time in again.”
