Peplum wedding dresses have emerged as a full-on trend for Spring 2013, and this month's cover look, a silk-taffeta trumpet Amsale gown with floral embroidery and a peplum, reminds us why. The popular silhouette is playful yet modern, just like our September cover girl, who wears a Tia Mazza cathedral-length veil and diamond 18-karat-white-gold ear clips by Van Cleef & Arpels. Rosy blush, black mascara and glossy lips—all by Dior—complement her gently pulled-back hairstyle. A bouquet of dahlias, amnesia roses, scabiosa, sweet peas and clematises designed by Amy Merrick complete the look. Photographed on location at New York City's American Irish Historical Society, September's cover calls to mind all the anticipation and sheer joy that comes with throwing a wedding.
