Kate Bock says ‘I Do’ in custom Ralph Lauren
Canadian model Kate Bock wed her basketball star fiancé Kevin Love on Saturday evening at the New York Public Library. Bock’s gown was a custom creation by Ralph Lauren, a brand whom she has modeled for many times during her career. The 34-year-old told Vogue that the show-stopping dress with its bodice, A-line skirt, and circular train was inspired by Grace Kelly, and it took over 1,800 hours to complete the intricate beadwork and embroidery which features over two million hand-placed beads. A 1.5 meter veil completed the look, prompting event planner Marcy Blum to comment: “This veil is going to give me a heart attack…it’s the world’s longest veil—it goes to the outer boroughs!” Congrats!

Step inside Atelier Adler—Jonathan Adler’s new creative studio and flagship in Soho
Jonathan Adler has new digs in NYC—and this latest three-story, 6,000 square foot space is particularly special for the famed interiors brand. For the first time ever, the concept will bring together creation and commerce under one roof as it functions as a pottery studio, design studio, corporate HQ, and a retail store with multiple additional services including design-your-own custom options for rugs, upholstery, and more. Located on West Broadway between Spring and Broome, visitors might even see Adler himself sitting behind the pottery wheel. The location is also particularly significant, as it’s situated close to the New Jersey-native’s first pottery studio where he honed his craft and is near to where the first store opened in 1998 on Broome Street too. With its 30th anniversary coming up next year, it’s a sign of major milestones still to come. “This retail concept is a dream come true for me, and if you had told my twelve-year-old self (or for that matter my forty-two-year-old self), that I would return to Soho with a building on West Broadway as my creative headquarters, I would have thought you were kidding,” Adler said. Plan your visit accordingly!
