Nameless insiders have declared that Jolie will look to Versace for her wedding outfit. The Italian fashion house dressed Jolie in champagne satin for the Golden Globes and in leg-flashing black velvet for the Oscars, making Donatella the bookies’ odds-on favourite to begown Jolie the bride.
For the novelty betters, Paddy Power is also taking wagers on Angelina wearing a leather dress (10/1), being pregnant on the wedding day (5/1) and wearing a vial of Pitt’s blood, as in her 2000 wedding to Billy Bob Thornton (40/1).
Should Jolie choose to go down the designer bridalwear route, she’ll face a wealth of options. We combed through images from Bridal Fashion Week in New York and found several contenders for the royal wedding of the year (Hollywood royalty counts, right?).
Consider, for example, this Jenny Packham gown. The deep v-neck and crossover back detail make it a great-from-any-angle option from one of Jolie’s favourite designers. Jolie also could spring for a more sedate, covered-up Marchesa gown, like this sheath with a very Duchess of Cambridge sweetheart bodice and illusion lace neckline.
Alternatively, Jolie could shun the pure-as-snow implications of wedding white without compromising on the fantasy element of the occasion, by buying into Vera Wang’s all-red wedding vision. We think this deep claret gown is very Lara Croft goes to the ball.
And then there’s Oscar de la Renta, riding to the rescue with a slinky-yet-bridal gown with a full-throttle thigh-high slit.
Which would you choose for Jolie’s walk down the aisle?
