As a potential peek at things to come, we asked some of our favorite designers to dream up fantasy gowns for Angelina Jolie's megastar nuptials.
Alfred Angelo designer Michael Shettel chose to focus on the hallmarks of Angelina Jolie's red-carpet style in dreaming up a fantasy wedding gown for the star. "Angelina has a classic, yet minimalist style," Shettel notes. "Never one to be overly designed, she chooses to highlight her figure in something body hugging and dramatic." The designer stayed true to such a silhouette with this re-embroidered lace, natural-waist mermaid gown, adding just a dose of Hollywood glamour with delicate crystal beading. "She also likes to keep the flash of skin limited to one particular area, such as a dramatic side slit skirt, or a daring open back," says Shettel, who opted for a dramatic back and sheer sleeves. "I wanted to create something that would be classically beautiful and remain true to her personal style."
