Elettra Wiedemann's Wedding and Triathlon Training

Elettra Wiedemann on Her Go-To Summer Look and Big Summer Plans


From hosting the live stream of this year's Met Gala red carpet to making sure New York's fash pack gets their Fashion Week sustenance the eco way, Elettra Wiedemann has been having a very busy year. And as she told us at this week's Coach Carnival in New York City, her Summer is about to get even busier.

"I'm getting married," the model revealed. "Next week, just at City Hall. I'm having a tiny, tiny wedding."

As if nuptial-planning weren't enough, Wiedemann also shared another activity that's sure to be taking up plenty of time — and energy: "I'm training for a triathlon," she explained. "My fiancé and I train together on a triathlon team. I'm not a great runner, and this is my first year on a road bike with my feet clipped in. Navigating New York City traffic with clipped-in feet has been quite scary, and becoming a better runner has been quite challenging. But I'm getting there — slowly!"

So what does Wiedemann keep stocked in her busy Summer arsenal of wardrobe go-tos? "Equipment shirts — I live in Equipment shirts. They're so light and so beautiful and they look elegant but they're not annoying, you know? They don't obstruct your day."

And what about the Summer's most important ensemble, the one she'll wear when she walks down the aisle? "Oh, no, don't ask," she laughed. "I haven't figured it out yet!"

"I got it at a vintage store in SoHo, and it was in the bottom of a barrel. It's one of my favorites," Wiedemann said.
