Fashion Royalty Weds In Capri
Giovanna Battaglia, arguably one of the most important personalities in fashion today, weds Swedish realtor Oscar Englebert. Turning the island of Capri into a three day festival, the fashion crowd descended on the Italian beachfront for some serious celebrations.
Thursday night, the rehearsal dinner saw Giovanna dressed in a white feather dress by Alaia. Family and friends were treated to a night of good old fashioned fun at the Piazza Umberto. The casual affair boasted a photo booth mimicking a newsstand. An ode to Gio’s career in the publishing world.
The seaside nuptials were on Friday. The couple #gioandoscar made their vows against the idyllic backdrop of the Punta Carena lighthouse. The bride dressed in a custom Alexander McQueen gown with embellished bodice and statement train also adorned with feathers was a vision of sophistication.
Her partner in crime Anna Dello Russo, editor-at-large of Vogue Japan served as bridesmaid, with her accessories designer sister Sara Battaglia.
And the festivities are set to continue today, Saturday with a ‘celebration of exaggeration’ the only dress-code, ‘bring your dancing shoes.’
