As we’re all well aware, the world’s hottest couple, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, tied the knot in a secret ceremony in France last weekend. While details were slow at first, the end of last week revealed a range of fascinating tidbits regarding their nuptials. That included, of course, the dress ("very traditional, but very Angie"), the accessories ("a small gold locket with a photo of her mom inside it") and the guest list (no more than "22 relatives and close friends"). But at long last, we’re finally getting some photos of the affair.
This week’s issue of People (in partnership with Hello! magazine internationally) offers an exclusive look at the "Jolie-Pitt family wedding album," including Angelina’s oh-so-stunning Atelier Versace gown. And it wasn’t just any dress: according to a statement from the label (accompanied by the below sketch), "Donatella Versace designed Angelina Jolie a custom silk satin Atelier Versace gown gathered at the bust with an elongated train detailed with embroidered drawings of her children. These drawings were also reproduced on her silk veil. She accessorized with white Versace silk satin pumps."
People reports that master tailor at Atelier Versace Luigi Massi "sewed dozens of designs from her children’s drawings into the dress and veil." Hello!’s cover image of the gown, below, offers an even better glimpse of the children’s artwork. As for Pitt’s get-up, he reportedly wore a suit from his closet, with a tie borrowed from one of his sons because he forgot to pack his. (Aw!)
"It was important to us that the day was relaxed and full of laughter," the couple told People. "It was such a special day to share with our children and a very happy time for our family."
This issue, out tomorrow, September 3, is going to sell like hotcakes.
