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.
"Angelina has all the right ingredients to be the muse for any couturier," notes Angel Sanchez, a designer who often dresses celebrities (Eva Longoria and Taylor Swift among them) for red carpet appearances. "Her imposing beauty, charisma, and Old Hollywood-glam look make for the perfect combination." For his Spring 2013 collection, Sanchez conjured a glossy, futuristic romance, which carries through to this long-sleeve, high-slit gown he imagined for Angelina's wedding day. The illusion neckline and sleeves feature hand embroidery over silk tulle, while a gazar skirt adds body and grandeur to the gown. "Angelina can carry a true couture gown effortlessly," says the designer. "That alone is inspiring."
