Chic checked in with Ruben and Isabel Toledo just days before the royal wedding to find out how their own love story came about...

How did you propose to Isabel?
RT:
I don't even remember how I proposed--it's embarrassing! I met this woman when I was 13 and got married to her when I was 24. It was love at first sight. There was no question she was going to be my wife.

What was your wedding like?
RT:
It was so small, teeny-weeny. Just some family in a church, then it started pouring rain. It was really beautiful.

Any standout date moments?
RT:
The best dates are happening now! When we were kids, we worked so much that it didn't feel like a date. Now we get to have grown-up dates like drinking wine at Big Sur.
IT: Take me on a date, honey!
RT: I will... anytime.

It always brightens our day when we see that Valentino was out on the town. The legendary designer and Giancarlo Giammetti attended The Cinema Society screening of Thor in Manhattan last night. Good to see the boys can still enjoy a night out!

If it's the event of a lifetime, you better believe that David and Victoria Beckham are gonna be there. They know everyone! We're keeping our royal wedding coverage at a minimum because we know if you want it, you know where to find it, but Chic must acknowledge the attendance of royalty in our world at the big event. Work that hat, Posh!

Sarah Burton Receives The Royal Approval

Sarah Burton can sleep well tonight. Lagerfeld approves. The designer told France 2 television that he thought Kate Middleton's Alexander McQueen gown was a "gown of very refined detail, much more refined than the one Diana wore." The Kaiser's praise didn't stop there. "Alexander McQueen's dresses are always elegant. It's very pretty and relatively classic, but that goes with the decor, with a little touch of the 1950s that recalls Marilyn Monroe or Queen Elizabeth II's dress. The lace is pretty, especially the embroidered veil and the tiara is not too high, without too heavy a bun. It's ravishing and the length of the train is perfect." Lagerfeld also compared Middleton to a troubled actress who isn't the first person that comes to mind when we think of England's new Duchess. "Kate is a young, modern woman. She's a Lindsay Lohan and she wasn't going to miss her moment." Moving on…He was not as kind to everyone who attended the festivities. Lagerfeld channeled his inner Joan Rivers and tore into one guest at Westminster Abbey who was wearing a coat in a rough fabric that resembled upholstery,  "She's wearing a sofa on her back!'  Ouch.

Even though Fergie's invite to the wedding got, uh, lost in the mail, her daughters Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice certainly made it known that they were there. Oh, darlings!

Last night, Chic popped into the penthouse at Barney's to ogle some seriously stunning gems at the launch of Irene Neuwirth's Diamond Collection, with proceeds benefiting the CFDA's Fashion + Friends for Japan. Busy Phillips and Joanna Newsom were the lovely hosts of the evening, and Phillips giggled on and off with her date for the evening, Michelle Williams. But the best duo of all? Andy Samberg and Neuwirth, former camp buddies! As macaroons made the rounds and the intimate and superswanky crowd - including Harvey Weinstein, Lake Bell, Reed Krakoff, and Richard Chai - tippled champagne in the parfait springtime evening breezes on the veranda, Chic chatted with Samberg and Neuwirth about their campiest memories!

Andy Samberg:
How did you know Irene?
AS:
It was a sleep-away camp, called Skylake Yosemite Summer Camp. The kids definitely liked me. I was the campfire coordinator, which meant I organized the entertainment every evening. I think they were sick of me by the end of each summer. Just like with any comedian, you can't see one person entertaining for too long.

How did you score that gig?
They made that job up for me because I didn't have any other skills. I couldn't teach windsurfing because I didn't know how.

What was Irene like at camp?
We were friends. Irene was the horse wrangler, and I think she used to drape jewels on the horses. Just kidding!

Irene Neuwirth:
So, Andy was the campfire coordinator at Skylake Yosemite Summer Camp. Tell me about your equestrian fiefdom - I'm surprised it wasn't the arts and crafts hut!  
IN:
I taught horseback riding every summer and my title was horse wrangler. I think I also taught archery. Or maybe water skiing, too. I’d been going there since I was nine.

Did you guys ever go back for a reunion?
Yes. It was really fun! I think we just drank a lot and went skinny dipping. It was a blast.
