Over the past weekend Angelina Jolie, accompanied by her long time love Brad Pitt, appeared at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art wearing an elegant 16 carat designer engagement ring. Both the press and their children have long waited for the announcement of a wedding to come.
And though no date is yet set, Angelina's classic style is sure to mark a return to what stylists regard as “quiet luxury weddings”. The hallmark of such events is a subtle elegance, an understated style that separates the long established elite from the merely newly arrived.
Wedding silver, at such events, isn’t rented or purchased because the family has long had theirs.
There is no need for a flash or flare wedding gown that says, “Look, we’ve socially made it!” QL families have already arrived.
So look for bridal themes to be quietly chic this spring as Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt set the season’s wedding styles.
Restrained elegance will be the trend and, so hopefully will be the charity work done by the couple.
Mature sophistication should always include an awareness of others, especially those not blessed with such a wealth of opportunity and choices.
