Fashion heir Margherita Missoni married her long-time love, racing driver Eugenio Amos, in a romantic church ceremony in the quiet Italian town of Brunello over the weekend. The 29-year-old wore two versions of the breathtaking gown—traditional white for the ceremony and blush pink for the reception.
The newly married Missoni collaborated with close friend Giambattista Valli in creating the gowns. “The dress was made by the women who saw me growing up, following my precise directions and with Giamba’s couture counseling,” said Missoni via Twitter. The asymmetrical ethereal frocks were created using Missoni silk and organza. The design evoked an otherworldly kind of romance with its long ruched tulle sleeves, and stunning embroideries and flower appliqués.
The blushing bride wore her hair up with a silver veil during the ceremony, but let it down for the party. Missoni also changed into a floral headpiece for the effervescent after-church celebrations held in the grounds of her mother’s home. Guests, including Mario Testino, Carine Roitfeld, Franca Sozzani and Anna Dello Russo, partied with the newlyweds in the venue “made magical by illuminated bales of hay and by Romany-painted caravans housing,” wrote Suzy Menkes of the elegant party in The New York Times.
The colorful setup of the countryside venue truly evoked the spirit of Missoni as guests dined around low tables adorned with chevron-printed tablecloths and cushions. Even the dinnerware was as vibrant as the prints of the Missoni fashion house.
