It feels almost impossible not to acknowledge one of the most highly anticipated events of the summer -- the wedding of Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, which took place last evening at Astor Courts in Rhinebeck, New York.
The bride chose a frothy, confection of a gown by Vera Wang, featuring "a diagonally draped bodice, ballgown skirt made out of raw edged laser-cut swirling silk organza, and a train in silk tulle." A crystal-encrusted belt, also by Vera Wang, defined the waist. Jewelry was kept simple with understated earrings and a bracelet. A long tulle veil and simple bouquet of white flowers completed the classic bridal look.
Various news sources reported Chelsea Clinton visiting both Vera Wang and Oscar de la Renta earlier this week. The latter, it seems, was for the radiant mother-of-the-bride, who wore a wine colored Oscar de la Renta gown for the wedding.
Congratulations to the newlyweds!
