The fashion crowd took a break from Men’s Fashion Week this past Saturday to see the ultracool Margherita Missoni marry her longtime beau Eugenie Amos in Brunello, Italy. The wedding was attended by fashion heavyweights like Suzy Menkes, Franca Sozzani and Stefano Tonchi (according to WWD) and, judging by Vogue Italia’s snaps of the decor, lots of Missoni. Though, oddly, the bride’s creamy, voluminous gown was designed not by a Missoni but by Giambattista Valli (who attended) and was made with Missoni silk and organza.
She topped that off with braided hair, a veil and a bejeweled tiara. The look, with all its accoutrements, was a tad over the top–yet somehow Missoni totally pulled it off. Still, her gown reminded us of like, every Disney princess dress ever (especially Ariel’s in The Little Mermaid), Robin Wright as Princess Buttercup in The Princess Bride, and mostly of Jennifer Connelly in that ball gown in Labyrinth (we know it wasn’t technically a wedding dress, but it totally could have been).
Missoni’s gown was obviously much more tasteful and we think she looked super pretty and happy. And sidenote: The Missoni bridesmaid dresses were everything. If I’m ever a bridesmaid I really hope I get to wear a pink crop top.
