We’re living in a generation of time-obsessed nomenclature: “instant download,” “Instagram,” “Uber Rush” and “direct-to-consumer fashion;” but what about something that can stand the test of time? Something that goes against our flippant “hit-it-and-quit-it” attitudes of today and can just as easily resonate with our grandparents as it does us and, later, our children?  Isn’t that wherein modern nobility lies? One look at New York designer and recent CITIPHILE Elizabeth Kennedy’s eponymous collection and you may be convinced. At once Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lauren Santo Domingo, the designs radiate that kind of jaw-dropping elegance that makes you stop, stare and, at the very least, recognize the overwhelming beauty. Of course, most women– regardless of generation– crave this at least once in their lives which brings us to the designer’s myriad of milky gowns perfect for “I Do’s.” There are form-fitting and beaded for the glamorous, A-line for the traditionalist and cascading metallic separates for the contemporary, all of which impress in their own right. Newly arrived on Moda Operandi, the below two designs immediately stole our hearts. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but Kennedy’s dresses seem to beg for only one: “Wow.”
