Gardenias are the
perfect bloom to add
texture and romance
to a room decorated in
off-white. Clear accents
and crystals will add
a layer of decadence
This beautiful bronze palette adds light
to the cheekbones, while classic black liquid
eyeliner channels Audrey Hepburn. I'd pair them
with red lipstick from Chanel and a fancy chignon.
For a vintage vibe, a live
band is a necessity. First
dance: Louis Armstrong's
"It's a Wonderful World."
And to end the night,
"At Last" by Etta James.
When I think of The Ritz-Carlton,
I think luxury and fantasy. This
dress escapes the traditional and
feels more exciting and unique.

LEGENDARY DRESS DESIGNER
INES DI SANTO PUTS HER SPIN ON
THE PERFECT AUTUMNAL CELEBRATION
Who better to imagine an ultra-glamorous wedding than a
couture gown designer? Inspired by Toronto in the fall, Ines Di Santo
shares her dream Ritz-Carlton celebration.
I love The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto in the fall.
The grand staircase is especially inspiring. It's
the perfect venue for my Audrey-Hepburnmeets-Ines-Di-Santo fantasy wedding!
El Coco Palm d'Or - Bacardi Gold and
coconut water - would be my signature
cocktail. I'd serve it as they do at the hotel's
DEQ lounge, with fresh coconut - and paired
with a one-of-a-kind, custom dinner. I'd want
to wow my guests and make it memorable.

No jewelry is more iconically glamorous.
