Margherita Missoni Is Engaged! What Will She Wear On Her Wedding Day?
After news that Demi Moore is divorcing husband-of-six-years Ashton Kutcher, we bring you a bit of cheer: Margherita Missoni is getting hitched! WWD reports that the youngest daughter of the Missoni clan plans to wed racing driver Eugenio Amos next spring near the Italian town of Sumirago, which houses the company’s headquarters. Naturally, this begs the question, WHAT will she wear?
As heiress and muse of the Italian House, MM has become a shining ambassador for the brand. She can oft be found on the red carpet showcasing the mark of Missoni – aka: zig-zaggy patterns and bright prints – courtesy of her mother’s creations. She’s an avid fan of floor-sweepers too, whether they’re covered in feminine feathers, florals, ruffles or lace, as she proved at this year’s Met Gala when she sported an ombre knit dress from the Autumn / Winter 2011 collection [centre]. All this will make dressing for her wedding day an absolute doddle.
Just like Beyonce whose mother made her wedding dress, odds are on Marg’s mum as the designer of The Dress. In fact, Angela Missoni’s entire A/W ’11 collection was bride-appropriate, packed with floaty full-length gowns in pretty pastel colours. ‘It’s a fairy tale,’ said Margherita before the show, so will they make her the fairy tale bride?
More inspiration lies in Missoni’s Spring / Summer 2010 collection [above]. We can totally see Mini Missoni wearing these delicate layers covered in a smattering of paillettes with a string of pearls. OR, considering she recently created M Missoni for OrphanAid Africa, a capsule collection of ready-to-wear and accessories, perhaps the bride-to-be will DIY her own creation?
Either way, we’re predicting a streamlined gown with a sweeping skirt, a touch of colour and air of boho nonchalance. Will it feature knitted zig-zags? Only time will tell…
