Angelina has a world of designers at her fingertips, but who will be the lucky one she wears down the aisle? Here are some of our top picks.
Here Comes the Bride
News of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s engagement has stirred up our high-fashion bridal fantasies. Will the actress go for a soft vintage look or bring on the glitz with a flashy beaded gown? From Elie Saab to Zac Posen, we’ve rounded up the best dress choices for the big day.
Elie Saab Couture
Elie Saab’s couture collections make fairy tale magic. Every handcrafted piece that sweeps the runway is worthy of a Jolie/Pitt wedding—and that’s no statement we take lightly around here. Seriously, just take a glimpse at one of Saab’s lines and try not to find a dress you wouldn’t kill to wear to wear to your dream wedding.
We are loving every minute of the design world’s current Art Deco fascination. Can’t you picture Angie dripping in beads like a modern day Zelda Fitzgerald in this J. Mendel beauty? Le sigh.
Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti
There’s something so spine-tinglingly sweet about this Philosophy dress—maybe it’s the sheer gauzy sleeves, the gored skirt or those tiny cloth-covered buttons. We can see the future Mrs. Brad Pitt loving an uncomplicated vintage style like this one.
Giambattista Valli Couture
Leave it to Angelina to work black into her bridal color scheme. This Giambattista Valli couture gown brings a modern twist to that draped Grecian effect she loves by adding a metallic bowed belt and a sliver of contrast fabric.
All right, so odds are the actress won’t be wearing fur down the aisle, but as you can see, Reem Acra has mastered the art of luxurious elegance. This delicately pleated corset gown is right up Angelina’s alley.
Chado Ralph Rucci
A minimalist at heart, there’s always a chance Angelina will walk down the aisle in something so basic it’s brilliant. This subtly beaded Chado Ralph Rucci number would fit that bill precisely.
Riccardo Tisci’s Fall 2011 couture collection for Givenchy consisted solely of 10 pieces, each impeccably hand beaded to convey his theme of “purity, lightness, fragility.” And really, what more could you ask from a wedding dress?
Zac Posen’s signature mermaid silhouette beckons back to Old Hollywood glamour, making it sublime wedding fodder for a bride of Angelina’s stature. This structured champagne gown would look brilliant on the actress, especially if paired with a birdcage veil and diamond choker.
Marchesa has a way of conjuring up visions of extravagantly stylish weddings. This Pride & Prejudice dress makes us want to run through a field of daisies on a windy day—no groom required. Perhaps Angelina will share our fondness for its feminine charms.
Oscar de la Renta
If Angelina wants the shine without the froufrou, Oscar de la Renta’s pleated metallic dress could be her answer. This gown would make for an unorthodox walk down the aisle, but it would be simply exquisite with a jeweled hairpiece in a side-swept ‘do.
Elie Saab Couture
It was impossible for us to pick only one of Saab’s dresses as a possibility for the epic wedding. This crystallized column dress from the designer’s most recent couture presentation would lend the actress a touch of splendor while she recites her vows.
British designer Erdem is a master of lace and romance, but not in the traditional wedding dress sense. This negligee-inspired silk ivory gown from his spring line would be stunning on Angelina’s porcelain complexion—especially if she painted her famous lips a bold red like this runway model.
Chado Ralph Rucci
Chado Ralph Rucci’s Spring 2012 line was full of futuristic designs for the modern minimalist. This tiered bead-saturated number with a sporty neckline is decadent yet restrained in a very Jolie way.
L’Wren Scott’s creamy satin Fall 2012 gown has the perfect amount of shine for a tasteful wedding gown. We love the homage to ’30s slip dresses with its bias cut and floor-sweeping train, something Angie is sure to love.
Zac Posen offers another stellar option for the bride-to-be with this saucy silver number. The elbow-length split sleeves add to the drama of the figure-hugging design.
