Supermodel Claudia Schiffer will wear a "classical, almost fairy-tale dress" by Valentino for her wedding today to British film producer Matthew Vaughn. The haute couture designer had dressed the model in many wedding dresses for catwalks, but this was different, he said: "There is so much emotion. " Schiffer and Vaughn, both 31, upset Suffolk County villagers in eastern England after an ancient pathway near Schiffer's mansion was closed on the eve of the wedding reception in her home, Coldham Hall.

Jennifer and her husband, Jeff, pack the dress - a white-stretched-lace-over-jersey number - on their treks across the globe. When the mood strikes, Jennifer goes into bride mode and puts on her wedding getup so Jeff can photograph her. Jeff has photographed Jennifer in her wedding dress in places ranging from New Zealand to China to Las Vegas and back again. The Medford, N.J., couple compiled these testaments of love - to travel and each other - in a book called One Dress, One Woman, One World . The Salvages, who have been married for three years, lust to wander.

Before Katharine Hepburn was a Hollywood legend, she was a student at Bryn Mawr College, singing vaguely bawdy songs, dancing around the maypole, and, naturally, starring in the class play. She graduated in 1928, became - briefly - the wife of a Main Line socialite, and years later immortalized another local maiden, Radnor heiress Hope Montgomery Scott, in The Philadelphia Story. Hepburn fled suburbia for stage and screen, but an exhibition and auction of her estate beginning tomorrow at Sotheby's preserve that era and the rest of her life, which ended last June at age 96. Visitors can see and purchase a lock of Hepburn's baby hair, her Bryn Mawr trigonometry exams and notes on Wagner, her wedding dress, and a diamond-and-sapphire pin that Howard Hughes gave her. The pin, which Sotheby's estimates will sell for $15,000 to $20,000 when the sale is held June 10 and 11, is a rare bit of glamour in the life of a woman whose furniture, clothing and jewelry exuded Connecticut Yankee, not Hollywood star.

It is not too late to buy a wedding gown for a traditional June wedding, but most of the customers in bridal shops at this time of year are planning a fall wedding. Women are encouraged to start shopping for their gowns six months before the wedding, because delivery can take as long as four months. That doesn't mean spur-of-the-moment formal weddings are impossible. There are stores that will dress the bride and attendants in a couple of weeks, and at least one will outfit a bride in a day. But they'd better wear size 8, 10 or 12, because that's what the stores usually have in stock to use as samples.

Made-to-order wedding dresses, like babies, are usually conceived months before they arrive. But the first time Carolina Herrera heard she would create Marla Maples' wedding dress was Dec. 11. Herrera, the women's clothing designer whose client list flows with some of the world's bluest blood - from Princess Margaret to Jacqueline Onassis - knew she would have to work swiftly. "I often start on a wedding dress six months early," she said during an interview at her office this week.

How I loved my lavender maternity dress. I bought it when I was 22 years old, newly pregnant, and breathless to let the world know. The fabric was nubby, and the cut was what the fashion mavens called "trapeze. " I couldn't wait to wear it. Why did I keep that lavender maternity dress long after there would be no more babies in my life? Because of an emotional pull that's easier felt than explained. Because certain clothes in a woman's life reach way beyond reason, all the way to love.

Today's older, more free-spirited bride is mixing old-school glamour with millennial individuality to create a new genre of wedding dresses that often are captured on smartphones, but look as though they emerged from a black-and-white still. "These gowns are a reflection of a woman's personal style," said Nicole Sewall, comanaging director of BHLDN, a Philadelphia-based online wedding-dress boutique that's part of the Urban Outfitters retail family.

Hey, why not? Handel's 40-minute cantata Apollo e Dafne rubbed shoulders on a double bill with Peter Maxwell Davies' extended mad scene, Miss Donnithorne's Maggot, at Curtis Opera Theatre over the weekend in the sort of high-concept pairing that promised no consensus audience reaction. First came Handel, in one of the longer cantatas of his pre-London maturity (1710) about the failed courtship between Apollo and Dafne, ending in a way that only mythology can - Dafne turns herself into a tree and Apollo waters it with his tears.

WHEN a "beautiful socialite-turned-amateur porn star-turned-reality- TV entrepreneur" weds, as Kim Kardashian will do today, attention must be paid. The Kimmy and New Jersey Net Kris Humphries nuptials will take place, as these things often do, under great secrecy with details kept under wraps, the better to justify that big payday from People magazine ($500,000, some say) for a pictorial in next week's issue and the E! network's plans for a two-part wedding special on Oct. 9-10.

DEAR ABBY: Would you please explain to me why today's brides still take formal bridal portraits? To me, the "W-E" in "wedding" signifies a bride and groom sharing equally in earning a living, raising children and performing household functions. Shouldn't a wedding portrait be of the two people together? - Shirley in Houston DEAR SHIRLEY: Superstition may have something to do with it. It's supposed to be bad luck for the groom to see the bride's dress before the wedding, which is when the bridal portrait is usually taken.

When brides spend countless hours finding - and then fitting into - the perfect wedding dress, it's no wonder they eventually have that pricey number professionally cleaned and packed away for future family heirloom status. But more women are taking a decidedly different approach to preservation: trashing the dress, and documenting it.
