For October's cover shoot, we had our sights set on creating a classic bridal look. Mikaella's strapless mermaid dress with a ruffled skirt and a flower sash had just enough oomph that we kept the accessories understated (diamond stud earrings from Tiffany & Co. and a clear gemstone-and-diamond necklace by Anzie). We topped it all off with a simple Jennifer Leigh waterfall veil. To add a bold pop of color, Zeze Flowers created a gorgeous bouquet of peonies, roses, and hydrangeas.
If you're loving this look, you're in luck! This gown and others featured throughout the October issue will be sold at hugely discounted prices as part of our White Hot Hope campaign. Proceeds will be donated to Operation Smile and Dress for Success. Go to whitehothope.com/buy to shop for a cause, starting October 1!
