After dressing tens of thousands of brides in the last 41 years, Yolanda Cellucci will close her one-stop bridal and ready-to-wear boutique, salon, spa and cafe in Waltham, Mass., next month.
Known for her all-white ensembles and elongated eyelashes, Cellucci, who has been dubbed the “Sultan of Sequins,” has favored the old-school approach to retail, making a point of calling her customers by name and dressing generations of family members. But with her 75th birthday a few months away, she said: “It’s been a long time coming. I’ve never been ready to do this and frankly I never will be. I get here at five to six every morning, and my trips to New York are frequent,” she said. “But my children said to me, ‘You need to give yourself some time and to give us some time.’”
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
