As a contributing editor at Vogue, Lauren Davis is privy to the fashion forward styles that will be spotted on catwalks in the upcoming season. When the time arrived for her to say “I do” to Andrés Santo Domingo, however, tradition prevailed over trendiness, and on January 18, 2008 she slipped into a strapless creation designed with a ballgown skirt by Olivier Theskyen for Nina Ricci. Nine bridesmaids, each sporting a silhouette by a different designer, walked down the aisle at iglesia Santo Domingo on the island of Baru (near Cartagena, Colombia) before the bride made her grand entrance. Through the diaphanous fabric of her wedding veil blusher, the bride could see designer and Project Runway judge Nina Garcia, model Karolina Kurkova, Andrea Casiraghi and Harrods heiress Camilla Al Fayed stand in her honor as she made her way toward the groom, who presented her with a wedding band to accompany the Alexandrite-and-diamond engagement ring she has worn since June 2006.
Following the ceremony, Ivanka Trump, who will watch her mother exchange vows with Rossano Rubicondi on April 12, 2008 and Presidential First Daughter Barbara Bush, who will head to Canton, Texas for the May 10, 2008 wedding of her sister Jenna, were among the group of friends and family who walked three blocks to the reception before the newlyweds embarked on a honeymoon excursion to the Philippines, the New York Observer reports.
