Monaco's Royal Wedding

Staff Writer

The world was on wedding watch again over the weekend, as Prince Albert of Monaco wed his commoner fiancée Charlene Wittstock of South Africa. An Olympic swimmer, Charlene dazzled in a gorgeous ivory satin Giorgio Armani Prive gown, complete 40,000 Swarovski crystals. Her train added quite the drama to the dress, maybe to divert the supposed "runaway bride" drama from before the wedding? Prince Albert was her perfect complement in his white military suit, and guests and royals from around the world watched as the pair exchanged their Cartier wedding rings. Tres chic!
