Just how magnificent you ask? Well, there were chartered flights taking friends and family to the rehearsal gala dinner at Noto Bassi di Palazzo Nicolaci in Noto, Southeastern Sicily, #Ferragnez (that’s the official wedding #, obvs) mascots for photo ops, Alberta Ferretti gowns for bridesmaids, a majestic palace where the actual wedding took place, a lit up cave for the wedding dinner, a carousel, a ferris wheel (casual), a filming crew (there’s a documentary in the works because 5-min wedding videos are so 2016) and the bride wore not one, not two, but three custom Dior gowns designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri. Oh, and the #Ferragnez baby, Leo, was also dressed in Dior, naturally.
TLDR; This was the wedding of the ages.
And as much as I want to dismiss it as just another influencer extravaganza, there’s just something very endearing about Chiara. Sponsored goods were marked with #suppliedby to keep things transparent. Also I’m partial to any wedding with a carousel.
Make-up artist Manuele Mameli took on the task of glamming up the bride. Chiara was named a Lancôme muse back in March, so fittingly Manuele used exclusively Lancôme for her big day to create glowing skin, soft silvery eyes and nude lips. It’s a look that feels easy and relaxed, polished but so unabashedly Chiara.
The best part about this look? It’s so versatile that you can rock it to other formal ‘dos! Plus, it’s relatively achievable with affordable options. We’ve thrown in some quality Lancôme splurges too so you can rock it like Chiara. Dior gown optional.
Using a blush that skews towards beige-terracotta helps to both define and add colour to the face without needing additional contouring or bronzing. It looks natural and diffused, without any harsh lines or muddiness. Try Lancôme Blush Subtil in 003 (RM160.38) for a silky finish. The shade will work for a lot of looks too.
With a light hand, tap Catrice Galactic Highlighter Drops (RM28.20 at Guardian) onto cheekbones, brow bones, nose bridge and clavicles if your outfit shows it off. Think subtle, not strobe.
