Leave it to a street style star to kick off wedding season with nupitals so chic, we'll probably still be talking about them by the end of the summer. On June 10, Giovanna Battaglia, Italian stylist and our personal WardrobeGoals, headed to Capri with her Swedish sweetheart realtor Oscar Englebert to tie knot, inviting the A-list fashion-set to the seaside locale to witness their “I do's” — which featured a fittingly-dramatic wedding dress for Battaglia, a confetti pop, a seven-tiered wedding cake, breathtaking views, and endless lavish details.This wedding dress alone is enough to make us lose our minds, but couple in that stunning Capri seaside setting and it's a wonder we're still standing. According to Vogue, the wedding weekend began with a rehearsal dinner at Piazza Umberto I — a.k.a. the most fashionable town square in the world! The bride donned a custom Alaia dress with a tiered feather ankle-length skirt and big bell sleeves. Gorgeous (duh), but that fabulous frock was nothing compared to her big day dress.Battaglia walked down the aisle — the oceanfront lawn of Punta Carena lighthouse — in a wow-worthy Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen wedding gown, featuring a notched and epically embellished bodice and a major train. Could you just?!When Battaglia and Englebert were declared officially hitched and shared their first wedded kiss, the confetti started flying and the party really got going.

Meanwhile, Battaglia slipped into yet another luxe look for the “I do” festivities — a short embroidered number with a dramatic cape and matching thigh-high boots.We don't think we could take much more chicness, but the weekend is still young!

A spokesperson for Alexander McQueen replied to the lawsuit by telling CNBC, “We are utterly baffled by this legal claim. Christine Kendall first approached us at Alexander McQueen almost four years ago, when we were clear with her that any suggestion Sarah Burton's design of the royal wedding dress was copied from her designs was nonsense. Sarah Burton never saw any of Ms. Kendall's designs or sketches and did not know of Ms. Kendall before Ms. Kendall got in touch with us — some 13 months after the wedding. We do not know why Ms. Kendall has raised this again, but there are no ifs, buts or maybes here: this claim is ridiculous.”

There are few dresses in recent memory — perhaps in history — as famous as Kate Middleton's custom Alexander McQueen wedding gown by Creative Director Sarah Burton. Now, five years later, another designer has filed a lawsuit claiming the design was a knockoff of one of her own.

Chances are, if you're anything like us, you still remember waking up (or staying up) at the wee hours of the morning to absorb every single detail of the royal wedding. Obviously the bridal detail that stuck out the most was Sarah Burton's custom-made wedding dress from the Alexander McQueen label that perfectly transitioned regular civilian Kate Middleton to her Duchess of Cambridge status. Even still, the gown is influencing bridal fashion all over the world. We're beginning to see more long, lace sleeves head down the runway, and models sporting gowns with more “ladylike” simple lines.

Sadly, actress Tyler and Royston Langdon have since divorced but when they made their union official in 2003, the bride did so in McQueen. The couple, who have a son together, wed on a Caribbean island in secret but held a party a month later at Pastis in Manhattan for which Tyler chose a simple, empire line gown with delicate chiffon sleeves.

“Miss Middleton was most interested to see your work and very much appreciated you taking the trouble to write,” the letter said. But according to a spokesperson for the Duchess of Cambridge, her royal highness had never even seen the wedding dress sketches.

Christine Kendall, a Hertfordsdshire-based bridal designer, has filed a claim against the fashion brand at the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court in London. In it, the designer says she presented the Duchess of Cambridge with her sketches before the Royal wedding, which she believes served as inspiration for Burton's final product. Kendall is careful to make clear that this lawsuit doesn't involve Kate Middleton, with her solicitor telling the International Business Times, “This claim is not against the duchess and there is no allegation of wrongdoing against the palace.” (For their part, a spokesperson for the Royal family says Middleton herself never saw the sketches, either.)
