What They Wore

Page 2 of 9


Kate Spade

December 16, 1995, New York City


Overall Look and Feel:
Simple, very personal, and a hell of a lot of fun! So simple that I did everything myself-like ironing the hand towels in the bathroom and arranging the flowers.

The Dress:
I wore a black mohair-and-sequined Isaac Mizrahi baby-doll dress with a big black bow for the ceremony, and for the reception I wore a full silver skirt and gauzy silver twinset, all by Cynthia Rowley.

Memorable Dress Moment:
We had votive candles lining the staircase, and as I was coming down from the roof, one of them caught my skirt on fire. I discreetly put out the flames, ran upstairs, and pinned the skirt so you couldn't tell. It seems it's the one thing everyone always brings up to this day!
