Celebaby: Angelina Jolie's Wedding Dress Features Her Kids' Drawings
Oh sweet mercy, have you SEEN Angelina Jolie's wedding dress?
According to the New York Daily News, the first images of Brad and Angelina's exclusive ceremony in southern France "show the 39-year-old actress in her full-length dress with drawings from her children sewn into the gown" while her groom "wore a suit from his closet and borrowed a tie from his son because he forgot one".
The wedding pics feature exclusively on the covers of People magazine and Hello! magazine.
The New York Daily News site reports:
"Jolie’s plain white floor-length antique lace and silk dress and veil featured an unorthodox twist, with drawings by their six children sewed into the gown by Atelier Versace master tailor Luigi Massi."
"'Luigi is like family to me and I couldn't imagine anyone else making this dress,' Jolie told People. 'He knows and cares for the children and it was great fun putting it together.'"
Personally I think the dress and veil (it looks as though it's the veil that features most of the drawings) are both utterly fantastic, but opinion seems divided among people who care about such things. I've heard critics say it looks like the Jolie-Pitt kids accidentally scribbled on it so that the etchings then had to be incorporated into the design - but c'mon, like she couldn't afford to start over again with a new dress if that had happened - while others reckon a wedding dress is not the place to show off about the fact that your children are the centre of your world. Harsh, in my view.
What do you think? And could you conceive of letting your kids be centre stage when it comes to something as sacred as your wedding wardrobe? Will this start a new trend?
