It’s wedding season, as the paparazzi remind us daily. Maybe you’ve heard somewhere that Chelsea Clinton recently married her longtime beau, Mark Mezvinsky? It may not be the wedding of the century, but coverage of the wedding will certainly influence wedding trends this year.
Chelsea’s ornate Vera Wang strapless gown, with a sleek lined bodice, elegantly accentuated by cascading waves of laser-cut silk on the skirt and train will probably lead to a big revival of strapless full-skirt silhouettes that are flattering on almost everyone.
Chelsea’s jewelry is also is setting the trends for wedding-day jewelry. In particular, her diamond flower drop earrings are a lovely look, especially for brides who are considering an updo. Her diamond tennis bracelet is a classic look that is perfect for your wedding day and every other day for the rest of your life. (And a fabulous gift idea for the bride’s parents, even if they don’t travel with secret service agents.)
No doubt Chelsea’s engagement ring would also set the style for sparklers, maybe even more than Carrie’s ring from Sex and the City, which has caused a surge in black diamond engagement ring sales this summer. There’s just one problem: so far, no pictures are available that clearly show the design of Chelsea’s ring. Is it a three or four carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring? You tell me: the only photos are pretty blurry.
Chelsea’s wedding band is another story. The Platinum Guild recently announced that Chelsea wed with a platinum band with vintage detailing. This Tacori band is said to be “similar.” Does this mean the engagement ring is platinum with vintage-inspired details? Unless you have can just say “enhance” and make those blurry images suddenly come into focus like they do in the movies, we’ll have to wait for new photos from those paparazzi to say for sure.
