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.
