For the cover, Shelley wore a sleeveless empire cut bridal gown with a chapel train topped with a sheer organza coat that closed under the chest with a bow and had puffed bishop sleeves ending in ruffles and decorated with guipure lace on the high neck, the sleeve ends and edges of the coat. It was by Bridal originals. Stockings by Christian Dior and shoes by Newton Elkins completed her look. A headpiece by Lounette and a flower basket by Max Schling finished her look. And with her signature smile, Shelley looked like one happy bride.
