Angelina Jolie FINALLY gave us a glimpse at her bespoke wedding dress designed by Donatella Versace under the brand's Atelier label after covering both the front pages of People and Hello magazines respectively, and boy was it worth the wait...
At long last we were able to see Angelina in all of her bridal glory. And, while we have to admit her choice of frock is nothing like what we had envisioned, the fact that it was adorned by drawings and doodles made by her six children - Maddox, 13, Pax, 10, Zahara, 9, Shiloh, 8, Vivienne, 6 and Knox, 6 - gave Ange's bridal look an unexpected and very touching twist.
As the newly released initial sketches of Angelina's wedding dress, which she wore to tie the knot with her partner of 10 years, Brad Pitt, these illustrations were no afterthought.
It seems that Donatella worked with Ange's brood from the get go and that the fun and playful drawings were always going to be an integral part of her bridal look. How adorable is that?
As for the groom, 50-year-old Brad didn't fork out for a new suit for his big day but opted to don a tux and trouser set from his existing repertoire. However, he too had to look to his kids for some, ahem, help just before the service as it has also been revealed he had to borrow a tie from one of their sons after forgetting to pack one of his own. Oh Brad, what are you like?
In an official statement from Versace HQ, the brand gushed: 'Versace is honoured to announce that on August 23rd 2014, Angelina Jolie chose to wear a stunning Atelier Versace creation designed by Donatella Versace in occasion of her marriage to Brad Pitt. For the special occasion Donatella Versace envisioned for Angelina Jolie a one of a kind custom-made Atelier Versace look: she was perfect in a white silk-satin Atelier Versace gown gathered at the bust with elongated train, detailed with the embroidered drawings of her children that got reproduced also on the silk veil. She accessorised her stunning creation wearing a pair of white Versace silk satin pumps.' Excited, much?
After all, it's not everyday that you get to create a wedding dress this creative for one of the world's biggest stars, is it? Good job, Donatella...
