Azzedine Alaïa for the Piazzetta
“For the welcome dinner on Capri, Italy, we took over the piazzetta in the center of town. I figured I should start the wedding weekend with an ‘A’—as in Azzedine Alaïa. It was the first time he made something custom for me! We were inspired by classic Italian straw parasols, so both the shape of the dress and the sleeves resemble an umbrella. Azzedine wove this amazing white straw onto his signature knit fabric. I added white coral De Simone Fratelli earrings and an orchid in my hair—and, ecco!, an effortlessly polished, festive look.”
