Although both of them haven't been seen publicly since deciding to get married, Bee Shaffer was spotted wearing an engagement ring in an Instagram Story image shared by a Vogue editor and her friend Shelby Drummond and even mentioned her husband-to-be in the caption.
Despite being the children of two prominent fashion icons in the business, both of them had managed to keep their relationship in private, with rumors that both of them were together first popping up last October in 2016 when Bee attended a screening for 34-year-old Francesco's movie.
The documentary film was all about Francesco's mother Franca, who died shortly after in December of 2016.
It is likely that the couple had met at long before the screening, given that their parents were friends and involved in similar jobs, and it has been reported that Bee and Francesco began dating long before their relationship became public knowledge.
Sadly, Franca Sozzani passed away from a long-term illness in December of 2016, and according to the wiki, the current Vogue editor-in-chief Anna penned a touching letter in her honor. Wintour wrote at the time:
“That’s one thing that Franca taught me about friendship: Sometimes, you really have to earn it. In private, Franca was warm, clever, funny, and someone who could give the Sphinx a run for its money when it comes to keeping a confidence.She was also the hardest-working person I have known, and with an envy-inducing ease with multitasking. She made everything she worked on appear effortless, regardless of whether it was an event for several hundred; a whirlwind trip to Africa to support the continent’s emerging designers; or the creation of yet another newsworthy, provocative, and utterly spellbinding issue of Italian Vogue.”
Congratulations to both of them!
