Iconic Wedding Dresses : Mia Farrow

To carry on our weekly iconic dresses feature, let’s take a look at Mia Farrow’s sweet two-piece suit she wore during her wedding to Frank Sinatra.

American actress and model Mia Farrow married Frank Sinatra on July 19th, 1966. He was 50 at the time, and she was just 21. The unlikely couple had met two years previously on the set of Sinatra’s film ‘Von Ryan’s Express’.

Never one to blindly follow convention, Mia chose to wear a two-piece crisp white suit to go with her short pixie hairstyle, and looked the epitome of ’60s mod on her wedding day. Mia’s short hair perfectly complemented her delicate features, and her pale cleancut suit looked effortlessly sweet and chic.

Although this was her first marriage, it was Sinatra’s third, and the couple famously married in a whirlwind 15 minutes at The Sands Hotel in Las Vegas.

Sadly, this was to be a short-lived marriage

Just two years after their wedding, Sinatra served Mia with divorce papers on the set of her film ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ in front of the entire cast and crew, after she had refused to appear in his film ‘The Detective’. The divorce was finalised the same year.

Mia Farrow subsequently went on to marry musician André Previn and then screenwriter Woody Allen, but unfortunately both these marriages also ended in divorce.
