I do! Do you?
Summer is quickly coming to an end and so are many of the thousands of weddings held across the country this season. While you're probably excited to ditch the bad bridesmaid dresses or sign the final bill for the big day it's also fun to look back to see what was hot this summer in terms of matrimonial style. One of the biggest events of the summer: former first daughter Chelsea Clinton's wedding to Marc Mezvinsky. It looked like something out of a princess, fairy tale, happily-ever-after-kind-of-book we used to read as little girls. The gowns, the cake, the romantic vows... oh my! It's enough to make any girl start to daydream about her own big day. While most of us only fantasize about designer gowns, multi-tiered cakes and professionally choreographed first dances the new Mrs. Mezvinsky made it a reality. She glowed in a strapless silk organza gown adorned with a crystal encrusted belt designed by Vera Wang (of course!) as she walked down the isle with close to 500 of her closest friends and family looking on. Her make-up was simple and clean with rosy cheeks and sparkling eyes that really "popped". Her eyes were accentuated with a bronze eye shadow similar to shades found in IT Cosmetics Eyes of Seduction Palette in place of a darker liner followed by a few coats of black mascara. And, if you happened to notice her toned arms you're not alone! We did, too. The bride reportedly achieved the svelte look by sweating it out in grueling 60 to 90 minute spinning classes every day. So cheers to Chelsea and Marc and here's to hoping our prince charming is right around the corner!
