Soft, fresh, and effortlessly gorgeous—that's how we approached our September cover shoot, starring Marchesa's stunning sheath with flowing lace sleeves, an exposed back, and a dramatic fit-and-flare skirt. Delicate diamond earrings from Kwiat, a sweet Van Cleef & Arpels bow cuff, and a Tiffany & Co. ring added touches of sparkle. A real gardenia pinned into the simple chignon was the only hair accessory needed to complete this naturally beautiful look.
