Watch out San Francisco, there's a new hostess in town. Model Maggie Rizer moved to our foggy city last Fall and she's already making the fashion rounds. We caught up with her at Derek Blasberg's book party recently and talked about her wedding to real estate developer Alex Mehran. We got the juicy details about the dress, designer, and accessories. Her nuptials are taking place September 18 in Lake Placid, we can't wait to see pics, but in the meantime . . .
The wedding dress — was it easy to find or was it a struggle?
I had everything else planned first, and finally the wedding dress was the last thing. I was kind of freaking out because in my mind I’ve worn all the most amazing dresses in the world and I didn’t think I was going to find something that lived up to those, something I was going to be excited about. That was my problem, I wanted to be really excited and I couldn’t get excited about any of them because I was like “Yeah, it’s a dress.”
Who’s the designer?
Oscar de la Renta. I’m really excited about it, so it worked out.
What does it look like?
It’s classic, strapless, very fitted here [points to the waist], and then goes out and goes long. I have a cathedral veil, it’s cool.
