Patricia’s striking sister Carolina Herrera Jr. also dressed by her mother, was the bride’s only attendant and looked like a Greek goddess in a long column of iridescent pale blue-gray chiffon with a gathered tunic tied with brown velvet ribbons. Carolina Sr. dressed herself in burgundy chiffon under a floor-length burgundy velvet coat with a sable collar and cuffs. She dressed her two adorable grandchildren, Oriana, 5, and her brother, Axel Calicchio, 3, who preceeded the bride down the aisle in blue satin printed with tiny flowers, little slippers to match and white gloves, and blue velvet trousers and a beige ruffled shirt, respectively, of course.
She also designed the dress of the lovely mother of the groom, a chic cognac satin coat dress with tiny buttons running down the front.
But more of all this next week — the brilliant reception after the wedding and, naturally, the gorgeous guests.
