Inspired by marriage in 15th- and 16th- century Italy, we reinvent the Renaissance bride

Reenacting Paris Bordon’s 1550 creation, Venus and Mars are crowned by Victory, as Cupid adds a bit of cheek. Summoning her own muse, Vera Wang, designed an ivory taffeta gown with a split-front skirt and an Empire waist with embroidered velvet petals. Earrings, Siman Tu. Bracelets, Isaac Manevitz for Ben-Amun. Maid’s gown, Jim Hjelm Occasions. His jacket and trousers, Dior Homme. His ring, Chrome Hearts.
