The wedding carriage is parked in front of the Monument to Garibaldi located on Lungarno Vespucci. The elegant location is overlooked by the Villa Favard on the Lungarno and the Palazzo Calcagnini. Marie Lise Gres is the model.
The feature titled “Italy: Fashion with brio” was run in the September issue of Vogue in 1961. This image showcased a “Romantic Wedding dress of Medici splendor.” Photo Duffy © Duffy Archive
