Now here’s something you couldn’t get from those blurry, overhead, creepy zoom-lensed paparazzi shots of Anne Hathaway’s weekend nuptials: Her custom-made Valentino wedding gown was actually pink!
Well, partially pink, anyway. A rep for Valentino told People that the ivory silk point d’esprit tulle dress had a train embroidered with satin flowers and was hand-painted pink. Valentino himself (who retired from him namesake brand nearly five years ago) designed Hathaway’s gown, which was then whipped up in Rome at the house’s couture atelier.
Of course, Hathaway isn’t the first celeb bride to choose a pink dress for her wedding day–that honor goes to Gwen Stefani, who wore a hot pink-dipped Dior show-stopper to marry Gavin Rossdale a decade ago. Both dresses are total stunners, and Anne’s floaty version in particular is making us rethink our future fantasy wedding dress (which we may or may not have already saved to our desktop). We can’t wait to see her non-blurry, non-overhead, non-creepy zoom-lensed wedding pics.
Do you prefer the subtlety of Anne’s pink gown, or Gwen’s bold rockstar version?
