DID they? Didn’t they? As tabloid inches rise around the alleged Ibizan nuptials of Alicia Vikander and Michael Fassbender, we invite you to take a step back from the rumour mill.
Yes, it’s highly likely the duo, who met on the set of 2014’s period drama The Light Between Oceans, did get married. No, they are not the first Hollywood couple to choose to wed in front of their closest friends and family, but have their privacy invaded by hungry paparazzi.
Instead of squinting at photographs of blurry rings that could be wedding bands, we were distracted by Vikander’s low-key holiday style. A white broderie anglaise Zimmermann sun dress and taupe flat sandals hinted at a bridal look, yet Lolita heart-shaped sunglasses acted as playful armour against lurking photographers. The Beach House tote? Every girl needs a canvas bag to stuff sandy accessories in.
The following day Vikander was spotted wearing a blue-and-white floral dress, cream espadrilles and that same well-worn shopper. How refreshing that the star, who we most often see in Louis Vuitton (a brand she is ambassador for) adopts the same policy as us on holiday: scraped-back hair, sunglasses instead of eye make-up, fluid beachwear and the trusty tote that holds one’s entire life in during a week on sandy shores.
