…Because why have one when you can have three?
That’s what Chiara Ferragni said, and her sponsors at Dior were happy to comply.
The Italian beauty, ranked #1 on Forbes as the world’s top fashion influencer, tied the knot last Saturday with Italian super-star rapper, Federico Leonardo “Fedez” Lucia. And in case you missed the astronomical amount of social media coverage, the wedding was, um, INSANE.
To start, friends and family were flown privately on Alitalia flights to Sicily, greeted by life-size mascot versions of the couple upon arrival – so casual. The rehearsal dinner was hosted at historical castle, Noto Bassi di Palazzo Nicolaci, with a fire guest list of 160. On the big day, Chiara and Fedez’s breath-taking ceremony took place at 19th-century palazzo, Dimora delle Balze. SAME.
The Rehearsal Dinner – To kick off the festivities, Chiara wore a custom made dress by Prada that sparkled with her every move. No one could miss the bride-to-be in this number, not to say she’s not already a show-stopper.
The Ceremony – CLASSIC. ELEGANT. AGELESS. Designed by the creative director of Dior herself, Maria Grazia Chiuri, The Blonde Salad wowed guests in this timeless silhouette – and to that, I say well done. Between you and me, Meghan Markle’s dress tried to pull off the same look but just ended up looking like she ordered the zombie bride costume from Party City.
What appeared to be a dress was actually an embroidered bodysuit overlaid by a luxurious, full tulle skirt. As seen in the third picture, the skirt featured an unassuming slit at the front of the fabric’s body, flavoring the modest ensemble with a subtle, youthful spice.
The Post-Wedding Evening Gown – Quick hypothetical question: have you ever dreamed about your husband writing a song about you and then a world-class luxury couture house decides to incorporate the lyrics he wrote about you into a custom-made embroidered gown that you wear on your wedding night?
I can’t say my imagination has soared that high, but now I’m jealous because this ACTUALLY HAPPENED for #TheFerragnez (their wedding hashtag, of course).
That’s right, Chiara’s evening gown was inspired by Maria Grazia’s first collection at Dior, featuring lyrics and symbolic embroidery from the song Fedez wrote about her when he proposed.
The Carnival Mini-Dress – Hi, I understand I’m a plebeian but can I order this for a formal?
Once again, the top half of Chiara’s bodice remained and was matched with a shorter, ballerina-esque skirt of tulle for their carnival-themed after party.
And with that, I’m sold I’m going to need three fabulous dresses on my wedding night. Apologies in advance to my future husband.
