To celebrate Jennifer Aniston's engagement to Justin Theroux, Brides asked some of the biggest names in bridal design to sketch wedding dresses befitting everyone's favorite 'Friend.'
Like many women in Hollywood, Jennifer Aniston presents us with an oft dichotomous public image—that of the heartwarming, goofy gal and the Tinsel Town movie star. "I wanted to play up both sides of Jennifer's personality," says designer Kelly Faetanini of her fantasy wedding gown, "the effortless, casual girl-next-door Jen and the sexy glamour girl Jen we see on the red carpet." To arrive at an aesthetic based in both sides, Faetanini created a beaded bias-cut charmeuse slip with a v-neckline and soft tulle cascades at the hem to add bit of texture. Explains the designer: "I started with a classic, no-fuss silhouette to accentuate Jennifer's striking figure and then added a hint of sparkle."
