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.
To design Angelina Jolie's wedding gown, the team behind Watters first imagined the type of celebration she and Brad Pitt might host, deciding on "a low key event with close friends and family." From there, it was a matter of filtering Angie's signature style through Watters' take on a relaxed, intimate affair. "We believe she'll want to continue her sexy style but with classic touches such as an illusion neckline and three-quarter-length sleeves," the designers say. "We chose lightweight fabrics so the gown would be soft and romantic." A nod perhaps to one of the biggest trends of the Spring 2013 season, their silk-mousseline design is also trimmed in Chantilly lace along the illusion neck, sleeves, and hem.
