Can you imagine the Vogue wedding treatment these nuptials are going to get, let alone the guest list?

The announcement was made by Peoplemagazine, with confirmation from Vogue and a fleeting glimpse of the ring on Shaffer’s best friend, Vogue accessories director Selby Drummond’s Instagram story.

The couple made their relationship public last year, when Shaffer, who works as a producer on The Late Show With Seth Meyers, attended a screening of Carrozzini’s documentary about his mother, Franca: Chaos & Creation.

Carrozzini, like Shaffer, doesn’t work in the fashion industry. He works as a film director and photographer and has directed music videos for the likes of Beyonce and Nicki Minaj???.

Franca Sozzani, who died last year at the age of 66 from cancer, was good friends with Anna Wintour. In a tribute to Sozzani, who raised her son alone, Wintour wrote on Vogue苏州夜总会招聘:

“Very recently Franca was the subject of a documentary directed by her son, Francesco Carrozzini:Franca: Chaos and Creation. Being the star of a film made by your son can’t have been effortless or easy. During the course of filming, I am told there were some strong disagreements about the direction the movie was taking. Yet the results are both enchanting and insightful. After all, how could it not be, given Francesco is every bit his mother’s son: two intelligent, cultured, charming, don’t-ever-play-by-the-rule-book characters who brought so much of themselves to this movie.

“Francesco perfectly captures her drive and determination, her fearlessness, her beauty, her wild imagination, and her totally original way of fusing social issues with fashion. He always understood that she was no ordinary mother. But then, Franca was also no ordinary friend.”

It sounds like Carrozzini has the Wintour tick of approval, which you might say will come in handy with a mother-in-law whose nickname is “Nuclear Winter”.

It’s also lucky because Shaffer, who appeared in the 2009 Vogue documentary The September Issue and said of her mother’s industry, “It’s a weird world. I would never want to take it too seriously,” appears to be very close to her mother, often sharing sweet snaps of the two on Instagram. Including this most excellent throwback: Happy birthday mom!
