Valentino to design Anne Hathaway’s wedding dress

Couture bridal gown in the works for lucky Les Miserables star

ELLE cover star Anne Hathaway is on a roll: starring role in the film version of Les Mis which opens in December; engaged to fellow actor Adam Shulman; and now the recipient of a one-off wedding dress personally created for her by Valentino.

It would be fair to say that the designer is a fan: ‘She's a very good friend of mine,’ Valentino told E! News. ‘She's like my daughter!’
Then, with characteristic understatement, he added: ‘She's sensational. She's fantastic. She's a girl that… She deserves what she has in this life. [That] means she's already a great star. But she's going to be a great, great, great, great thousand times great star. She has all the qualities.’

Though now retired from the label which bears his name, Valentino still creates designs for selected projects, including the New York City Ballet last week and now an extra-special bridal gown for Anne. According to rumours, the rest of the wedding has yet to be arranged, or even scheduled – although with a Valentino dress made to measure by the great man himself, what more is there to worry about, really?
