The Dubai-based designer proves you don’t need to wear white to make an elegant statement on the big day.
He’s long been established as a designer to the stars, but Michael Cinco is also a doyen of bridalwear.
However his latest masterpiece has given new inspiration for brides around the world thanks to its subtly soft colour palette.
The spectacular wedding of @victoria_belo and @dochayden at the PARIS OPERA is probably the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen…and I’m so proud and happy to be part of it… @sayed5inco @emirateswoman @harpersbazaararabia @belobeauty @cristallebelo @scarletsnowbelo_ @wedluxe @lovinghautecouture @asiancouturefederation @thecatwalkitalia @couturissimo @vogueparis #couture #wedding #bride #akhoandmyBELOved #PARIS #ParisOpera #BeloBride #Dubai #MyDubai #MadeinDubai #MichaelCinco
Cinco dreamt up a blush-pink gown for dermatologist and TV personality Dr Victoria Belo, who tied the knot at the iconic Paris Opera last week.
With a three-metre train crafted from French lace (particularly fitting given the venue), the number also featured elaborate baroque embroidery for added drama.
The couture creation was also dusted in both transparent and rose opal Swarovski crystals, for extra glitz.
The Filipina star, who wed long-term partner Hayden Kho, also sported a cathedral-length veil for the ceremony, which fell theatrically over steps leading to the altar.
“The spectacular and extravagant wedding of Victoria Belo and Hayden Kho is probably the most beautiful wedding I’ve ever seen,” Cinco, who’s originally from the Philippines, captioned an image of the newlyweds.
“I’m so proud and happy to be part of it.”
Belo herself also thanked the designer just days after the nuptials, telling Cinco the gown was “everything I imagined, hoped for, and more”.
The designer has been on a real bridal roll in recent weeks. Need proof? Just check out these wondrous gowns:

Of course, with such star power comes a weighty price tag, with Cinco’s wedding dresses rumoured to cost in the tens of thousands of dirhams.
So for now, we’ll just be dreaming about wearing one…
