The bow adorned couture gown in “heavy silk cady” was all about clean lines and timeless elegance. She upped the ante with bold accessories— oversized Celine sunglasses and the brand’s Soir T-bar sandals with strass Triomphe in black. Her hair was styled in loose waves, because why not add a bit of cool-girl charm to the mix? Celine Triomphe XL 01 sunglasses completed the look.

Alexa kept the rest simple with sleek, straight hair and Boucheron jewellery (when your dress is this fabulous, you don’t need much else.)
