Tory Burch Marries Pierre-Yves Roussel in an Intimate Ceremony at Her Antigua Estate
Tory Burch has tied the knot! The American fashion designer and society fixture reportedly married Pierre-Yves Roussel, special advisor to the LVMH group, in Antigua on Saturday, December 1.
The ultra-secret ceremony took place at the restored estate of the late Bunny Mellon, which Burch owns. Mellon was a confidante of Jackie Kennedy and said to be the one woman Jackie wanted to impress.
While a spokeswoman for the designer told the New York Post that the wedding would be a private and intimate event with no press coverage, various notable guests subtly Instagrammed the occasion. Attendees included celebrity makeup artist Gucci Westman, designer Tabitha Simmons, fashion entrepreneur Lauren Santo Domingo, Jessica Seinfeld, Wendi Deng Murdoch, Fabiola Beracasa Beckman, French gallerist Victoire de Pourtales, Proenza Schouler's Jack McCollough and Lazaro Hernandez, model Jessica Hart, and Derek Blasberg.
The Post also speculated that Dennis Basso, Michael Kors, and socialites Gigi Mortimer, Renee Rockefeller, and Jamie Tisch all jetted out to the remote locale for the affair. Beracasa Beckman shared what appeared to be fireworks from the reception.
Burch and Roussel announced their engagement in January 2016 and the bride-to-be showed off her serious sparkler of an engagement ring in a series of Instagram posts.
The bride was previously married to venture capitalist Chris Burch, with whom she shares three sons, and has dated Lance Armstrong and Lyor Cohen. Roussel also has three children from his first marriage.
Clearly, the Burch-Roussel nuptials were a fashionable affair, the start of what will no doubt be a very chic marriage.
