It was just a few months ago that Olivia was in Paris, and now during this downtime, we're looking back at the magical shoots created there—reminding us that beauty's in the little details. This still from our couture editorial, shot near the Arc de Triomphe, played off the city's sculptural setting where an embellished Aspinal of London bag took center stage. Distinctive and eye-catching, the Crystal Star Clutch hones in on marrying past and present in a streamlined silhouette. Juxtaposing the grandiose nature of Giambattista Valli's Haute Couture dress, the clutch was used to celebrate the refined whimsy of the shoot. Olivia shares, "Bags are often overlooked, and this look shows that brides and non-brides can bring bits of joy into every day with accessories that have a hint of retro charm."

The English label took their cues from vintage perfume bottles and opulent chandeliers. This Hollywood Regency style mashup benefited from a modern dusting of Swarovski crystals and pearls for a sparkling finish. "The acrylic casing reminds me of the vintage styles favored during the '30s and '40s," she says, "while the leather chain strap means anyone can go hands-free and dance the night away."

Built for today, the clutch's distinctive shape fits everything from an iPhone to makeup. "I didn't carry anything with me on our wedding day—thanks to my amazing mom for holding onto essentials," Olivia remembers, "But if I were to do it over again, Aspinal of London's Crystal Star clutch is the ideal bridal punctuation."
