The Blonde Salad is now a wife. One of the world’s top fashion bloggers Chiara Ferragni married Italian rapper Federico Leonardo Lucia (Fedez) this weekend in an extravagant, Instagram-worthy wedding in Sicily, and the multiple-day event included a range of high-fashion creations, including several devoted to the nuptials alone.
For her rehearsal dinner, Ferragni wore a custom, glittery white dress by Prada featuring a gold embroidered plunging neckline. The gown itself was a gift from the Italian fashion house helmed by Miuccia Prada, the granddaughter of the founder of the label.
On her actual wedding day looks, Ferragni worked lovely alongside Maria Grazia Chiuri, the creative director of Dior, to step out in two gowns. For the ceremony, Ferragni chose a sweeping ballgown featuring a lace, sheer, embroidered bodice. “Yes I do, forever,” she wrote on Instagram alongside a full-length shot of her gown at the ceremony site.
She elaborated further on the partnership in an email to W Magazine. “Maria Grazia and I have supported each other for a very long time now, and I wanted her to be part of one of the most memorable days in my life,” Ferragni shared. “She is such an inspiration for me, and I wanted to celebrate our bond too.”
The design process took six months total. “The first time Maria Grazia and I talked, I decided to let her follow her instinct and leave her free to represent my life in these two dresses,” she continued to W. “I didn’t have a clear picture in my mind, but I know the feeling that I wanted to wear it. I wanted something classic and timeless, to celebrate not only my wedding but love. I like to say that ‘I love to love.'”
Ferragni swapped into a second dress for her reception—another custom Dior Haute Couture gown featuring sentimental embroideries and symbols from when Fedez (whom she affectionately refers to as “Fede”) proposed. The engagement featured a song the rapper created himself, and those lyrics came to life with appliqués on her gown. “Thank you @dior for creating the dresses of my dreams and these wonderful gifts,” she wrote.
Ferragni’s shoes were also a custom Dior design, with an adorable message written on the strap circling her ankle. It read, “J’Adior Chiara.”
“The entire set is even better than what I expected,” she explained. “I love the wedding corset and taking pictures in it while getting ready, and the skirt and the veil made it all magical. The details were the final touch: my shoes had ‘J’Adior Chiara’ written on the strap around the ankle. The gown was absolutely stunning, from the body in the same color of my skin to my huge skirt with images of a little lion; Maria Grazia herself redesigned the lion to have a little one to represent my baby, Leone. The most precious detail was the lyrics from ‘Favorisca i Sentimenti,’ the song that Federico wrote for me. I was so happy to see his face when he saw me wearing it for the first time, it was a surprise for him too. After the dinner I changed into a miniskirt, to be more free and ready to dance and have fun at the Ferragnez amusement park and the concert. The wedding theme was Italy’s heritage and Coachella party vibes, and both my dresses celebrated these moments.”
The couple share one adorable baby son named Leone.
Along with high fashion, the couple’s wedding included fireworks and a ferris wheel. Check out all of the photos below.
