This Is What It Looks Like When a Fashion It Girl Gets Married at Versailles
Fairytale weddings are no longer reserved for royalty. Swimwear designer Leslie Cohen Amon and Ronen Chichportich threw the most extravagant wedding at none other than the Palace of Versailles, Vogue reports.
The bride carefully cultivated a spectacular weekend to match the luxe location of their nuptials. The Parisian locals used their vast connections and a team of fashion's elite to pull off a party to rival those of Marie Antoinette. The weekend-long wedding was planned by fashion show producers of La Mode en Images (which boasts a roster of clients, including Chanel and Louis Vuitton to name a few).
The concept was to show their guests the "best of Paris" in one weekend. Naturally, this included a "Studio 54" dress code and a welcome dinner at Café de Flore the Friday night before the ceremony, followed by dancing at club Le Montana. Saturday evening offered a casual garden party at the Musée Rodin, where guests were free to roam the grounds and take in the art during the private event. This all led up to the main event at the Palace of Versailles on Sunday afternoon.
The dress was designed by fashion designer Giambattista Valli, a "dear friend" of the bride. The result was a short dress to match Amon's rock 'n' roll style complete with glittering 17th century–inspired embroidery with a Swarovski crystal ramage de fleurs d'oranger motif and a long customized silk chiffon train that draped over the bride's silhouette. The look was perfect for dancing the night away with performers Gilbert Montagné (he's described by Vogue as the Ray Charles of France). The party didn't stop until the remaining guests were kicked out of the venue at 4 a.m. due to an early meeting between Vladimir Putin and President Macron scheduled in the Château that morning.
