Over the weekend, Lara Stone married David Walliams in a dream wedding at Claridges Hotel in London, with a glitzy after party at Shoreditch House.
Provoking the jealousy of women everywhere, Lara wore not one, but two, custom Givenchy dresses.
The first, a white lace dress with gold trim for the ceremony, was much more demure than some of our options for her, but still managed to show off her heaving bosom. Later she changed into a metallic gold mini-dress fit for a Glamazon, keeping her hair and make-up natural throughout.
The guest list was full of England’s funniest folks like Russell Brand (sans Katy Perry), but also some of fashion’s finest including, Sir Elton John and sexiest man in history, Tom Ford. But where were the rest of fashion’s insiders who swoon over Ms. Stone?
Noticeably absent were dress designer Ricardo Tisci, Lara lovers Karl Lagerfeld and Miuccia Prada, and any model friends like Heidi Mount or Lily Donaldson. I can’t think of any reason, other than extreme busyness, that would prevent the fashion crowd from attending.
Sure, it’s Resort collection time, but can’t you take one day off to celebrate a wedding? Considering the jet-setting required by the fashion industry, one day is nothing. We would’ve easily skipped work for this party.
The absence of fashion insiders left the attire of the attendees in fashion tragedy territory. (We’re looking at you, Geri Halliwell.)
The wedding reportedly cost £80,000, according to The Daily Mail, which is approximately $115,083. Considering one of Lara’s Givenchy dresses cost £30,000, hitting the £80,000 mark seems easy, especially when the bride and groom drove off in a gorgeous grey 1930s Rolls Royce.
And if the Givenchy, Tom Ford, and Rolls Royce haven’t whet your appetite, Primrose Bakery provided cupcakes for the party: An awesome alternative to a skyscraper cake, and much more fun to eat.
All we have to say is: David Walliams is easily the luckiest man in the world. Congrats to the new couple!
