There was a Royal Wedding yesterday!
Prince Felix of Luxembourg wed his German girlfriend Claire Lademacher in a civil ceremony in Königstein (near Frankfurt). Guests included the groom’s parents–Grand Duke Henri and Grand Duchess Maria Teresa–along with his elder brother, the heir to the Grand Ducal throne, Prince Guillaume.
But onto the important stuff: Lademacher wore a white silk dress with a peplum and knee-length hemline. There also appeared to be some interesting structure in the shoulders. She didn’t accessorize much beyond that–just some very bright gemstone earrings. Here’s the full look:
Here’s a back view:
While our hatred of peplums is very well documented, we don’t really have a problem with this look. Maybe it’s the hemline that keeps things fresh? Or that the belt is an elegant touch (for once)?
Later this week, the couple will wed in a religious ceremony that sounds way more like a royal wedding: 350 guests will see them “joined” at the Sainte Marie-Madeleine de Saint-Maximin-la-Sainte-Baume basilica in the South of France, which is a really long name for a thing! After that, the bride will be whisked off to “a secret location” for the honeymoon.
And one last thing… here are her embellished heels:
