How Danish It Girl Emma Leth Pulled Off Jacquemus’s Massive Hat at Her Wedding
How do Jacquemus’s infamous massive straw hats translate to real life? Look to Danish It girl and model Emma Leth. This past weekend, Leth, who has been the face of local Copenhagen labels like Sophie Bille Brahe and was also tapped for Balenciaga’s Fall 2017 campaign, walked down the aisle to say her vows to artist Tal Rosenzweig. (Fun fact: The two met while they were both alone at the movie theater watching the Rolling Stones documentary Cocksucker Blues.) Leth wore the head-turning—as well as head-obscuring—hat in a look that quickly made the re-’gram rounds on Instagram. For context, the floppy, chicly absurdist straw topper looks as if it is the size of a bald eagle’s wingspan, or maybe a small bush. Her reason for choosing the showstopping, viral accessory is equal parts sweet and charming. “Getting married is a deeply private thing that you do in front of a lot of people,” she says. “This is why I needed a hat that combined the feeling of hiding and sharing generosity at the same time.”
While the hat was certainly an outré accessory, the rest of Leth’s look had its subtle quirks, as well. Leth wore a vintage lace dress sans a slip that revealed a pair of optic-white Baserange underwear. “The dress was made nearly hundred years ago and there’s a coin hanging inside near the chest,” she says, “and I like the fact that somebody spent long winter nights creating the beautiful lace.” The rest of her accessories hit close to home: There were earrings by Copenhagen jeweler Irene Griegst and heels by Balenciaga. And while the hat was certainly a wild style moment, her Arje Griegst wedding ring is something that she can say “I do” to every day.
