Style Rules

Which Bride Are You?

From venue to menu, myriad important decisions come with planning a wedding – none of them more so than the dress. That’s where we come in: we’ve trawled the fashion archives to bring you three iconic bridal muses to inspire style for aisles…  

Grace Kelly - Bridal Dress

The Fairy Tale Bride

She’s been dreaming of this day for as long as she can remember, harbouring starry-eyed fantasies about the gown-equivalent of 'happily ever after': Chantilly lace, gossamer-light chiffons and spectacular silhouettes, embellished to the nines. Once upon a time, she’d have practiced her vows in front of the bathroom mirror. Now, she’s reciting them in real life – and dressing for the occasion.

The Muse: Grace Kelly, Princess of Monaco

Finishing Touches

Amidst such splendour, accessories should play out classically. Think like Grace Kelly ("I favour pearls on screen and in my private life"), and look to timeless jewellery and traditional footwear.

The Perfect Fit

Manolo Blahnik took the work of Italian artist, Giovanni Boldini, as inspiration for his iconic Hangisi heels. The result? A crystal-toed twosome, nothing short of a masterpiece.

Something Blue

Her name is synonymous with haute bijoux – and Annoushka Ducas’ 18-karat white gold Labradorite drop earrings make for a spellbinding marriage of luxury and show-stopping drama.

Bianca Jagger - Which Bride Are You

The Fashion-Forward Bride

Wedded to the art of sophistication – a true style maven, who knows her Prada from her Miu Miu – the fashion-forward bride advocates setting traditions as opposed to following them. Drawn to the streamlined gowns of The Row and Stella McCartney, and slinky jumpsuits via Emilia Wickstead and Roksanda, her inner romantic finds a partner in pragmatism. Opposites attract.

The Muse: Bianca Jagger

Finishing Touches

When Mick Jagger married Bianca Pérez-Mora Macias, it was the latter – wearing a cream Saint Laurent tuxedo – who broke all the rules. The lesson? Nod to tradition, but wear it with a twist. 

Blue Silk Shoes

Something old, something new, something borrowed, something cobalt. Practical and punchy, Balenciaga’s signature Knife mules are for brides who possess the sharpest sense of style. 

Crowning Glory

In place of a veil, David Morris’ subtle Le Jardin tiara is the most beautiful compromise between classic and contemporary – an heirloom investment that befits the significance of the day.

Kate Moss - Which Bride Are You

The Wedding Belle

Ringing the changes (and looking good while they do it), wedding belles are saying a resounding "I don’t!" to one-hit-wonder dresses. Designers Alessandra Rich, Magda Butrym and Amy Powney at Mother of Pearl are the darlings of this new and glamorous guard, creating sass-infused confections – from sequin-dripping slips to luxe lacy minis – that emanate 'bridal beauty' one minute, and 'party-fabulous' the next.

The Muse: Kate Moss, Versace Haute Couture Autumn/Winter 1995/’96

Finishing Touches

Take the sparkle from your ring finger, and sprinkle it here, there and everywhere. More is definitely more, so let your magpie tendencies run riot: you are the bride, after all…

To Have & To Hold

A wedding may be a day for two, but this aptly named Judith Leiber miniaudière is Just For You. Consider it your answer to stowing the essentials, from speech cue-cards to an emergency lipstick.

First-Dance Footwear

Happy marriages are built on solid foundations – that is to say, chic-yet-sturdy platformed sandals à la Jimmy Choo. In porcelain satin, they’ll sweep you off your feet. Metaphorically, of course.
