Kicking off our countdown- the wedding of Margherita Missoni & Eugenio Amo. The gown was always going to be stunning and stunning it was! Tying in with Margherita’s own personal gyspy inspired style, her gown (which friend Giambattista Valli helped design) featured dramatic sleeves and floral detailing. The ceremony was held in the Italian town of Brunello with the reception on a nearby farm, entertained by a gypsy band and acrobats.

Anne Hathaway & Adam Shulman
