Is This The Most Extravagant Fashion Wedding Yet?

Ring Those Wedding Bells

A couple of weeks ago, W Magazine contributing fashion editor and super stylist Giovanna Battaglia married Oscar Engelbert in what can only be described as a jaw-dropping wedding ceremony on the island of Capri. With three killer costume changes, from the Alaïa custom-made number she deftly wore to the rehearsal dinner to the striking Alexander McQueen wedding dress that boasted thousands of feathers to a lace Giambattista Valli party dress no less. The ceremony was topped off with flurries of coordinated confetti (naturally) that showered down on rows and rows of impeccably well-dressed wedding guests.
The guest list read like a who’s who of the fashion world, and included everyone from Natasha Poly to Anna Dello Russo, Lauren Santo Domingo, Natalie Massenet and Peter Dundas, to name but a few. Naturally, the event set Instagram alight with #gioandoscar blazing across the most chichi of profiles.

Thursday 9 June, a flurry of the world’s most stylish people arrived on the island of Capri for the couple’s rehearsal dinner. Giovanna opted for a custom-made Alaïa dress that she wore with her favourite go-to shoe brand, Aquazzura.

The chic couple said “I do” on the balcony of the Punta Carena lighthouse on Capri. The bride wore Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen, which came complete with an impressive long train, intricate embroidery and gathered placements of feathers. In a word: perfection.
