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.
Leave overdone smokey eyes in 2014, please. Instead, try silvery hues with just a touch of gray on the outer corners for a delicate wing. Gosh Eyeshadow Palettes (RM69.90 at Sasa) are my new fave affordable find. The shimmers are super fine so there’s no fallout, the actual palette size is generous, and the colours blend in like total dream. 10/10 would recommend to anyone!
Keep brows natural by simply filling any sparse areas with NYX Auto Eyebrow Pencil (RM28.20 at Hermo), and give eyeliner a miss. Instead, define eyes with lashings of volumising, waterproof mascara to hold the curl. Lancôme Monsieur Big Waterproof Mascara (available in-stores at Sephora) gives incredibly dramatic lashes.
