Daily Dapper: Pride Week Diet

No carbs, gurls! That’s all I keep hearing in my head as we get closer to Pride Weekend here in New York City. Sure, I’ve dieted before but truth be told I’ve become a sort of lazy ass in that department. I also will not get all head on anorexic on you nor will I discover what the other end of a toothbrush is really used for. No, I’ll go with the absolutely ridiculous diet thought up by none other than Karl Lagerfeld.

Madonna Defends Adele Over Designer's Personal Attack

Karl Lagerfeld is known for flashy Chanel designs that have been seen on the runway and in several stores.  But now it is his mouth’s flashy comments that are getting him noticed,  in trouble and offending no other than the Material Girl.  The Huffington Post is reporting that Madonna is totally flabbergasted and disgusted over comments Lagerfeld made about Grammy Award winning songstress Adele in early February, calling her “a little too fat.”

Princely Wedding in Monaco, this year's second Royal Wedding and summer fashion show!

Monaco, one of the smallest countries in the world, famous tax heaven and playground of the rich and famous, is living a frenzy of 48 hours of continuous celebrations to honour the wedding of its ruler, H.S.H. Prince Albert II to South African former competitive swimmer Charlene Wittstock (now H.S.H. Princess Charlene).

The civil ceremony, which lased under 20 minutes and was a very private one, was held yesterday at the Throne Hall of the Princely Palace. The marriage register of the newly-weds was signed with a gold pen with precious stones adorned with their monogram, specially created for the occasion and gifted to the couple by Montblanc.

After the ceremony Mademoiselle Wittstock became Her Serene Highness The Princess of Monaco. The newlyweds saluted the crowds outside the Palace after the ceremony from the balcony of the Salon des Glaces. They were later joined by the Monegasque Princely family as well as the bride’s family. The party later joined the people at the Palace Square.

For the occasion H.S.H. wore a powder-blue, lace-trimmed corset, chiffon pleated palazzo trousers trimmed with lace and a classic powder blue jacket adorned with tiny silver and pearl buttons, speculated by French media to be a creation of the Swiss house of Akris, H.S.H.’s favourite. “It’s a collaboration between me and Karl Lagerfeld,” se told Vogue. “We wanted something to match the color of my eyes. It is my creation and I’m proud of it. It’s feminine and keeps with tradition yet has a little twist that reflects my personal style. I thought it was a nice change to go for trousers instead of a skirt, especially since I’m an athlete and have always kept my clothes clean and simple.” Her hair, deconstructed chignon (now her trademark) was made by Stephan Alban and her make-up by Pablo Ardizzone.

Unfortunately the press didn’t only speculate about the bride’s dress, or the guest lists or the menues, but they also said Charlene was calling the wedding off and had ran away to her native South Africa! About that she told Vogue: “It is a shame that those rumors came at such a bad time, but I think they were timed to sabotage such a happy occasion. They are categorical lies. I won’t dignify them with any response other than to say that the photographs of me and Albert in love and getting married will speak louder than any vicious gossip and empty rumors.”

 

The religious ceremony, perhaps of greater importance (in the Catholic Principality) will take place TODAY at 17:00 hrs CET (11am ET). While the civil ceremony was attended only by close friends and family as well as a few selected representatives of the Monegasque government, the French President and South African dignitaries, the religious act will see a guest list that consists of reigning and non-reigning royalty, other heads of state and government, ambassadors to Monaco from various countries, businessmen, entertainers, fashion designers, models, and sportspersons; amongst them will be Karl Lagerfeld (close friend of the family), Giorgio Armani (who designed the bride’s dress, one of the highlights of the event and until now a secret otherwise), Inès de La Fressange, Roberto Cavalli, Naomi Campbell, Dame Shirley Bassey (prominent resident of Monaco), Mel Gibson, Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.

-Of course, we are to expect a summer fashion show like no other, and we will bring you all the details!

Unlike every other royal wedding the religious ceremony will not be held in a Cathedral but in the Palace courtyard, with the Palace gates open, so that up to 3,500 visitors can follow the ceremony in the Palace Square . The service will be conducted by the Archbishop of Monaco, Bernard Barsi. Just as it was done for the weddings of T.R.H. Princess Victoria of Sweden and Prince William of the United KIngdom, the ceremony will be broadcasted live on giant screen throughout the Principality and online for the world to see.

Watch the ceremony LIVE starting at 11am at the official YouTube channel.
