ANGELINA JOLIE and Brad Pitt may have confirmed that they married last weekend in France ( all the details here) but pictures of the famously private couple have unsurprisingly not been forthcoming, meaning that we have not yet seen the bride’s (long-awaited, much-speculated-about) dress. So what do we know from the accounts currently emerging?
A friend who attended the wedding revealed that the dress was “very traditional, but very Angie. It was comfortable but plain, white floor-length antique lace and silk.” The actress also “definitely wore something that once belonged to [her late mother] Marcheline Bertrand: a small gold locket with a photo of her mother inside it.” She also wore a veil, the source said, and when “Brad lifted it, he gasped because she looked so stunning.”
Acting as ring bearers, flower girls and as her escorts down the aisle, Jolie and Pitt’s six children were also traditionally attired: “The boys all wore tiny matching cream linen suits which were just like Brad’s, while the girls had each chosen a dress to match their own individual style and they had them specially made.”
Most sensible money – thanks to dozens, if not hundreds of red carpet appearances through the years – is on Versace, if in fact the dress, which was said to be antique lace, did not belong to her late mother.
But Jolie is also a fan of British couture label Ralph & Russo. Famed for creating jaw-dropping wedding gowns for royalty the world over, the label has created several pieces for Jolie in the past – although its designer, Tamara Ralph, is almost as well-known for her polite discretion as she is for her design talents, so it is unlikely we will ever know more than that.
