I heard November Rain by Guns N’ Roses in the car today and I was thinking about how much I loved the video when it came out back in 1992. Stephanie Seymour was so gorgeous and she rocked that Carmela Sutera gown! I remember I wanted to wear that gown one day when I got married.
Here is the video:
A few fun facts about the video – the church (smaller one where Slash is playing outside) was constructed just for the video for only $150,000. And those shots of Slash? Shot from helicopters swooping around him. That Carmela Sutera gown for Steph: $8000. The symphony orchestra: $25,000. The specially constructed coffin: $8,000. This video is currently the 9th most expensive video – the budget for it was $1.5 million!
And since it is really all about the dress, a still shot of Stephanie Seymour looking fabulous:
One of Carmela Sutera’s models wearing the gown (but I like Steph’s since it is much, much shorter!):
