T he week we went to press on this issue, the world mourned the death of musician and international pop-culture icon David Bowie. Indeed, the artist's work progressed society's views on everything from gender to fashion to music, but as I reflect on Bowie's legacy, I can't help but think about the love he shared with his supermodel wife, Iman. The two were married nearly 24 years, and their partnership is as famous for its glamour (see Bruce Weber's memorable photographs of the couple for a 1995 issue of Vogue) as it is for their enduring romance. Two days before his death, Iman posted this quote on social media: "Sometimes you will never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory." I found those words poignant and most relevant to this issue — one of two a year we dedicate to weddings. I've heard it a million times from friends and family members: The wedding and reception are fleeting. It isn't until after it's all over that you realize how special certain moments actually were. With that, I hope we have captured the moments and the memories for those whose weddings we've featured this month. Matthew Stafford (famously known as the quarterback for the Detroit Lions, though known around here as the son of our former longtime associate publisher Margaret Stafford) tied the knot with his college sweetheart Kelly Hall in an Atlanta bash that gave whole new meaning to the importance of an after party. We also spotlight the nuptials of two couples — Daniel Branch and Heather Young, Katy Russ and Matt Schoen — with even more photos and details from their to-dos at In the spirit of game changers à la Bowie, we also feature several charities that, through the funds and awareness they raise, have done much for fashion, art, AIDS research and more. While we look back at fall's most megawatt events — from FGI's Night of Stars, co-chaired by our own editor at large Max Trowbridge, to TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art, chaired by the unparalleled philanthropist Nancy Rogers — we also look forward to spring. Topping our list of must- attends is DIFFA Dallas' annual bash, set for Saturday, May 21. The full scoop, including a spotlight on this year's Style Council, is on page 23. To paraphrase Ziggy Stardust, when I think about the coming months, we may not know exactly where we are going, but we promise it won't be boring.

Gold baroque details and geometric latticework combine with an electric mix of cultured pearls, spinels, morganite, moonstone, lapis lazuli, turquoise and diamonds. One ring recalls the playful Roue de Paris: A voluminous gold cage embellished with diamonds suggests the Ferris wheel's iconic cabins. The romance of the arches and tunnels along the Seine is captured in a swoopy collection of bulbous gold bracelets that are underscored with Cartier red — a suggestion that there is always more beneath the surface. Francophiles, this is your jewelry match, whether your variety of chic is quirky like Ines de la Fressange or dainty à la Audrey Tatou. See the collection in person at Cartier's NorthPark Center boutique through Sunday, February 28.
