Princely Wedding of the Weekend: August 2

The wedding of Pierre Casiraghi and Beatrice Borromeo, part two (a.k.a. the religious wedding, following last weekend's Valentino-clad civil wedding in Monaco), took place on Saturday. The festivities were held at the islands owned by Beatrice's family on Lake Maggiore in northern Italy, and this time, I got precisely the stunning look I've been waiting for.

This is lavish stuff, yes. That's their prerogative. Lucky us, we just get to sit back and enjoy the parade of dresses the bride is bringing. And oh, she's bringing it. Beatrice's impressive display of Italian fashion picked up once more as the bridal couple welcomed their guests the night before the wedding:
This is 110% about the hair + dress combo and she looks like a goddess. Somebody should paint her. Still, this is not the one I was waiting for.

 On Saturday, it was finally time for the religious wedding.
Armani Privé handled the wedding day attire for Beatrice, starting with a lace-covered gown with three-quarter sleeves. A veil was attached in a sort of unusual fashion at the back of her hairdo with some small ornaments along the side. This is traditional (well, from what we can see of it), this is lovely, this is...not the outfit that I will remember from these festivities.

That honor goes to the Armani Privé look for the reception afterward:
Mmmmmm. This is EVERYTHING.
Ahhhhhhhh. I could look at this ALL DAY LONG. MORE CAPS.
This is the look I've been waiting for. Stunning. This one won't be forgotten anytime soon.

There were guests there too, by the way. Familiar royal faces included Crown Prince Haakon and Crown Princess Mette-Marit (in Valentino and Giambattista Valli) with Marius Borg Høiby, plus Prince Félix and Princess Claire of Luxembourg (spotted with Princess Maria-Anunciata of Liechtenstein). And the Monaco bunch, of course - you can catch glimpses of them and other guests in some of the links above.

P.S.: Tidbits coming your way tomorrow!
