One needn’t consult the United Nations Statistics Division to realize that marriage rates just ain’t what they used to be. Still, there is something to be said for matrimony and its associated wardrobe. Although Billy Idol eulogized the white wedding back in 1982 perhaps better than anyone has since, this has not stopped Vogue Paris from taking a stab at in its May 2017 issue in a story by Inez & Vinoodh starring amongst others Grace Elizabeth. A white wedding at first glance might seem narrow in scope, but in fact bounds with possibilities as Grace so amply demonstrates. Whether le smoking or a long robe, lace or tulle, there is virtue to be found in just about any cut or material. To that end, Grace (pictured) wears a cotton crochet knit dress by Dior, which is complemented with full volume hair by Malcolm Edwards. The look is anything but staid and yet at the same time communicates a certain adventurous elegance. Grace for her part makes an ideal bride, the likes of which would certainly not depress global marriage rates any further than they already have.
