Stardust

Stardust1This WedLuxe fashion editorial from our new  Summer/Fall 2015 “Literary Love” issue will leave you starry-eyed! The editorial was inspired by Neil Gaiman’s novel Stardust, specifically the character Yvaine — a fallen star from the land of Faerie. The piece of fantasy fiction follows Yvaine on a magical journey from her initial fall, up to her eventual marriage to her true love, Tristran. With gowns that sparkle and shine paired with blue accents and glittering accessories evoking the sky, these fairytale looks are the perfect inspiration for stylish, luxe brides with a love for all things celestial.

The months of June and July filled our Instagram feed with society weddings taking place in far flung destinations, from St. Tropez to Normandy and beyond! Filled with breathtaking florals, couture designer gowns, and multi-day celebrations, these are just a few of the society weddings that have inspired us this summer.

Nicky Hilton

Nicky Hilton's custom high-neck Valentino gown had the internet abuzz earlier this month. She and James Rothschild married at Kensington Palace in London. The bride wore three pairs of custom Louboutin heels throughout the day, and changed into a short, sparkly mini-dress for the reception.

This Glitterati Style file from our new “Literary Love” issue was inspired by the great epic love of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Many accounts have been written about the couple's history, including Helen Rappaport’s “A Magnificent Obsession” that draws on letters and diaries to document the pair’s deep devotion to one another. With Rappaport’s text in mind, each detail of this shoot was designed to reflect the grandeur and scale of the royal couple’s love. We fell for the opulent tablescape that features giant candelabras and floral displays composed with hundreds and hundreds of roses. The cakes and exquisite desserts also had us loving this editorial, especially the seven-tier masterpiece at the end of the post that is truly fit for royalty.
