Anja Rubik gets married!
Onto happier news, last weekend supermodel Anja Rubik married her model boyfriend in an intimate ceremony in Mallorca. Her dress was designed by Peter Dundas of Pucci.

Dylan Lauren’s stunning wedding dress.
I’m sorry but the two Kates (Moss and The Duchess) cannot compete with Dylan Lauren’s fairytale wedding dress, which was designed by her father Ralph Lauren. The dress is handmade duchesse-satin and silk tulle with a tiered nine-foot train. For me, this is the ultimate wedding dress, it’s beautifully fitted and shows off her figure but also has the wow factor without straying into meringue territory. Perfection.
Carine Roitfeld’s styling V, inspired by Elizabeth Taylor.

Who’s that girl?
Read and then re-read this sentance: It’s Katie Holmes. Yes Joey from Dawson’s Creek. Yes, Mrs Tom Cruise. Yes, Suri’s mother. What a transformation, bravo Vogue Spain. Looking forward to seeing more from this 9-page editorial which features beaucoup de Louis Vuitton.
