She’s the daughter of a count, related to a 16th century canonized saint and is now officially the wife of Pierre Casiraghi of Monaco who just happens to be 7th in line to the Monagesque throne. With blue blood coursing through her veins and a pedigree that not even the most discerning royal watcher can dispute, Beatrice Borromeo has captured the attention not only of her betrothed, but the media’s as well. She herself works as a journalist and TV personality and as such, is often required to be on the scene by making appearances, attending press assignments and presumably networking with her contemporaries. While the attention she has obtained can mostly be attributed to both her career and her link to Casiraghi, she is also known for her impressive clothing style which can be summed up in three words: sophisticated, elegant and slightly eclectic.
The young bride appears to have a penchant for colour and can thus be seen wearing gowns in gold, silver, deep reds, peach as well as jewel tones at thevarious events that she regularly attends. Ultimately she appears to enjoy keeping things fresh and is therefore willing to wear dresses that vary in terms of not only their hue and the designer they are made by,but the overall style of it as well. She opts to wear gowns that were fitted, structured, drapey and everything in between, while ensuring that they are paired with coordinating accessories. Photos of her wearing a panther necklace or holding a crystal clutch purse and dangling diamond earrings attest to that fact as do the hairstyles she chooses to wear which range from a delicate chignon to loose romantic waves and a severe ballerina-style bun. Her style savvy was the most apparent at her wedding, however, where she was able to showcase her ability to choose a gown that was understated yet managed to make statement anyway.
Thus for the ceremony that took place on one of the islands that her family owns, Borromeo opted to choose a dress made by Giorgio Armani which was ethereal yet classic featuring cream lace throughout, ¾ length sleeves and a fitted bodice. Ultimately the bride opted to wear a gown made by one of the world’s most popular designers who is known for creating pieces that are simple yet glamorous, in keeping with her style personality. The photos of the couple’s nuptials were featured in media and it, in addition to the bride’s gown, appear to have received the public’s collective nod of approval. Thus ironically, at a wedding ceremony of two people with royal lineage hailing from the highest social strata, the main lesson that can be learned is that no matter who you are or who you’re about to marry, it’s always best to remain true to yourself.
