Monday's Muse: Lauren Santo Domingo

New York socialite and Vogue contributing editor Lauren Santo Domingo (nee Davis), has a flawless style which I have admired for sometime. Her look is pure effortless glamour, something that translated into her star-studded wedding in Columbia last year.

Olivier Theyskens, artisitic director of Nina Ricci and long time friend of Lauren's designed the ceremony gown as well as the feathered reception gown.

Designer Olivier Theyskens attends to the detail.

Just some of the extensive coverage from Vogue magazine. Lauren is reportedly one of Anna Wintor's favourites.

The train of the ceremony dress is elaborately embroided.

The bridesmaids wore dresses of their choice in different colours, each from different designers.

Lauren changed into stunning feathered gown for the reception. The bottom of the gown was then detached to create a feathered minidress for the after-party.

Lauren reportedly gave her bridesmaids free reign with their dresses, hair and make-up. She offered her opinions but basically told them "We aren't 21 anymore. You know what works best for you so go with that".
I find this so refreshing and the result was bridesmaids looks natural and glamourous and were probably confident and comfortable knowing they looked great.
