  It took me a good five minutes to recognize the blonde model sitting in makeup artist Tom Pecheux's chair backstage at Balmain. I moved closer to get a better look, still confused as Pecheux expertly buffed on concealer and tapped on lipstick and highlighter. It wasn't until the model stood up, looked in the mirror, and exclaimed, "Oh, my God, I'm blonde!" that I realized I had been staring at Kendall Jenner. No, Kendall isn't adopting her younger sister's penchant for wigs. It was all part of Balmain designer Olivier Rousteing's plan for his fall show. "Olivier wanted a surprise on the runway, so we're making some of the blonde models into brunettes and some of the brunettes into blondes," said hairstylist Sam McKnight, who used lace front wigs to achieve the fakeout. That meant Kendall went blonde and Gigi Hadid went brunette, as if the two besties swapped looks for a few hours (Jenner called it the #KenGi swap on Instagram), while other recognizable blondes, like Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Devon Windsor, and Lindsey Wixson, went dark and Alessandra Ambrosio swapped her brown hair for a warm golden hue. The anomaly in the group was Karlie Kloss, who went from dark blonde to nearly platinum. "We initially put the dark wig on her and it looked too heavy," explained McKnight, "so the twist was to go for a bleached-blonde shade." It's hard not to think that Rousteing's "surprise" for the show was just as much about social media as it was about the runway. The wigs were practically made for Snapping and selfies, the models enjoying a few hours to show off a new (and temporary) look. Even the makeup seemed to have been planned with Instagram in mind, Pecheux adding soft contours, lots of highlights, mascara, and a pinkish-nude lipstick dabbed on both the lips and eyelids, all of which defined the models' features in a pretty yet subtle ways. And if you don't believe me, just scroll through your Instagram feed and hop on Snapchat for a few moments. The proof is in the postshow selfies.

Stunning wedding gowns and dresses from film and history speak of Love, Desire & Riches

Mulligan donned the pale pink tulle and lace extravaganza as Daisy alongside DiCaprio’s mysterious Jay Gatsby in the 2013 film adaptation of the F Scott Fitzgerald book.

It’s one of the key attractions in the Love, Desire & Riches exhibition opening at Old Government House in Parramatta on Friday.

The tuxedo worn by Joel Edgerton as her husband Tom is also on display.

Other iconic movie dresses include the diamante-studded lace dress and voluminous veil worn by Toni Collette in Muriel’s Wedding and Nicole Kidman’s red satin gown from Moulin Rogue.

There’s also Gillian Anderson’s Miss Havisham costume from the TV series Great Expectations.

Curator Lindie Ward said the exhibition was inspired by a similar exhibition held by the Victorian National Trust with some extra additions such as the Great Gatsby dress on loan from the movie studio in the US.

Ms Ward said weddings played a prominent role in popular culture.

“What we were looking at is not only wedding dresses as such but the whole area of weddings and how it appeals to the imagination,” she said.

“And how people look to weddings as a key rite of passage in their lives and that’s why you see so many in films.”

But the collection is about more than just Hollywood glamour and movie magic.

It also takes visitors on a journey of marriage through the ages with wedding dresses spanning more than 200 years.

The oldest dress in the collection dates back to the early 1800s and was worn by a Mary Taylor on her wedding day in Birmingham, England.

Made of cotton muslin, the empire-style dress is embroidered with small sprigs and was brought to Australia by her great grandson in 1901.

Western Sydney region­al manager for the National Trust NSW Roxanne Fea said this dress was very simple but her favourite in the collection.

“It’s such a fragile thing that has been kept in such good condition” she said.

“It’s a garment made with loving hands from more than 200 years ago. You can’t replicate that experience.”

The exhibition also features wedding dresses by iconic designers including Collette Dinnigan, Mariana Hardwick and Carla Zampatti.

Ms Fea said weddings were symbolic, not just of love, but social status, cultural background and ­increas­ing­ly about ­inclusiveness.

“It’s really important for us to be celebrating the history of weddings because that story is still being written,” she said.

Love, Desire & Riches: The Fashion Of Weddings is at Old Government House from Friday, July 10, to Sunday, November 1.

Stuff's wedding of the week

It was a matchmaking effort that truly struck gold. Tom popped the question knelt on a carpet of rose petals and the wedding was just as picturesque, with an emotional reveal on the big day that sparked lots of tears.

But we'll let Ingrid fill you in on all the romantic details . . .

How did you meet? Tom and I were introduced in June 2010 by our wonderful friends Kellie and Brendan, who are now engaged themselves. Tom and Brendan have been friends since high school and Kellie and I became friends in our first year at university.

They had not been dating long when they decided to hook up their friends – It was a success (eventually)! Brendan was Tom's best man and Kellie was my bridesmaid. It was very special to have them both by our sides on our big day.

Tell us about the proposal: It was incredible. Tom proposed in April 2013, when we were one year into a two-year stint of long distance due to work commitments. I was on my way to Wellington to see him for the weekend.

Tom had filled our apartment with tealight candles and the floor was covered in rose petals. When I walked in the door Tom got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Through my tears of happiness I said yes!

Location of wedding: Our wedding was held in Hawke's Bay. We were married in St Martin's, the chapel of my secondary school, Iona College. We then had a marquee on the front lawn of my family home just south of Havelock North.

Describe your wedding day: Words don't do our wedding justice. It was a truly beautiful day with so many personal touches. It was described as a wedding of simplicity and elegance. We were floating on cloud nine from the beginning and we still are. I had dreamed of my wedding day from the age of 5, and it was everything I had ever wished for and more.

                                                                                                            Tom and Ingrid.

The dress: My dress was beautiful. The very talented Robyn Bastin from Hawke's Bay made it, along with the dresses of the bridesmaids and my mum. Robyn had made my ball dress at high school and it was lovely to have her make my elegant wedding dress too. I also wore my mum's veil which was very special.

The flowers: We had my favourite – sunflowers. Belinda from Flowerlands did our flowers and we just loved them. The bridal party bouquets, large reception arrangements and buttonholes were all beautiful and perfectly arranged.

Highlight of the wedding: That's a tough question! The whole day was truly a highlight. I would have to say though that being surrounded by so many friends and family members was incredible. The day oozed love and happiness and it was such a wonderful feeling.

Our wedding day was also the end of our long-distance relationship, as I had found a job in Wellington and was 'coming home'. Knowing that we didn't have to say goodbye at the end of the day meant a lot.

Was there any drama? Thankfully there was none. However there were a couple of very special friends that unfortunately couldn't make it due to terminal illness which was very sad. We were sure to mention them and toast them though, which made them feel included in our day.

The honeymoon: Tom and I were off on our OE with our good friends, followed by settling in London for two years, so we decided to go on a wee mini-moon.

We borrowed a friend's campervan and headed north. We made it right up to Cape Reinga and explored the top of the North Island. It is beautiful up there and was so nice to spend the week together and then return home to Wellington!

Your photographer and favourite photo? Our photographer was Michelle Fey for Eva Bradley Photography. I had followed her work for years, so when my turn came to ask her to photograph my wedding I was very excited.

Michelle is so talented and made us all feel at ease and comfortable. We are so incredibly happy with all of our photos.

My favourite shot would be of Tom on the morning of the wedding reading the card I had written for him. It told him that I had found a job in Wellington and was coming home with him. He got a bit emotional! It's a shot I will treasure forever but have been told by my proud hubby not to share online!
