Will Angelina Jolie Wear a Chanel Wedding Dress?

Drew Barrymore may not be the only celebrity bride to wear Chanel down the aisle this year. With Brad Pitt's new role as the face of Chanel No. 5 (the first male spokesperson in the scent's 90-year history), chances are high that Angelina Jolie will also don a custom wedding gown from the iconic fashion house. Barrymore can't feel too overshadowed, however, as she'll retain the distinction of being a pregnant Chanel bride when she marries Will Kopelman—son of former Chanel exec Arie Kopelman—next month. (Then again, considering the rate of growth in the Jolie-Pitt family, even that may not prove true.)

If indeed Jolie aligns her dress selection to her future husband's endorsement deal, two of Chanel's most recent collections offer an appropriately worldly aesthetic for the international mother of six. Designer Karl Lagerfeld infused his 2012 Pre-Fall collection with the ornate textures and tones of Maharaja India, mixing gilded tweeds with pearlescent silks and draped asymmetry. The Spring 2012 Chanel Couture show never actually picked a destination, as Lagerfeld staged the jet-setting collection in a mocked-up airplane cabin where 150 shades of blue flew by on elongated proportions and embroidered fabrics. See our picks below for the top Jolie-eque looks from these recent Chanel runways:

While a plunging, glittering neckline (left) might appeal to the movie star's sense of dramatic glamour, the high-neck, long-sleeve looks (center; right) seem more in line with Jolie's newfound preference for coverage.

A more conservative approach could also guide Jolie's selection from the Chanel couture collection, where a drop-waist-embellished navy gown (left), a short-sleeve bateau design (center), and side-slit gown with a matching cropped jacket offer the most bridal style.
