WEDDING CHOICE: Beatrice Borromeo opted for a pale pink Valentino gown to marry her longtime beau Pierre Casiraghi on Saturday at the Prince’s Palace in Monaco. The long pink-and-gold lace silk chiffon Valentino Haute Couture cape dress, designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, was an adaptation of a look from the spring 2015 collection and was created specifically for the civil ceremony.
Casiraghi is the son of the late Italian entrepreneur Stefano Casiraghi and Princess Caroline of Hanover, daughter of the late Prince Rainier and Princess Grace of Monaco. Borromeo, a former model and a journalist, is the daughter of Carlo Ferdinando Borromeo and Paola Marzotto.
Fiat chairman John Elkann and his wife Lavinia Borromeo, sister of the bride, were among the guests, as well as the bride’s grandmother Marta Marzotto. Beatrice’s other sisters, Matilde and Isabella, attended with their respective husbands, Antonio von Furstenberg and Ugo Brachetti Peretti. Casiraghi’s siblings, Charlotte and Andrea, were also present, together with their respective partner and spouse, Gad Elmaleh and Tatiana Santo Domingo.
According to reports, a religious ceremony is expected to take place Aug. 1 in Italy, on the Lake Maggiore, on one of the islands owned by the Borromeo family.
