Brides magazine asked designers to imagine wedding gowns for the two rivals ,that are supposed to hit the altar soon.While Angelina favors dramatic gowns with thigh-high slits or eye-catching necklines, Jen favors classic silhouettes and simple streamlined details.
“Neither Angelina Jolie nor Jennifer Aniston has yet to reveal what she’ll be wearing down the aisle. While we are earnestly rooting for both sides, we can’t resist a little friendly competition in the form of a big white dress. Here, fantasy looks for each bride-to-be as imagined by our favorite wedding-gown designers.” – brides.com
The team at Watters sketched a silk-mousseline design trimmed in Chantilly lace for Angelina Jolie based on their vision of her marrying Pitt in a low-key wedding among close friends and family. “We believe she’ll want to continue her sexy style, but with classic touches such as an illusion neckline and three-quarter-length sleeves,” the designers say of the sketch at left. “We chose lightweight fabrics so the gown would be soft and romantic.”
For Aniston’s wedding day, the Watters team imagined her and Justin Theroux saying I do “on the beach, somewhere warm like Mexico or the Caribbean.” Fittingly, they drew up a floaty V-neck chiffon gown with a flyaway skirt with different layers of cascading chiffon. Light beading at the edges is meant to play up her legs, which the actress bares at nearly every red-carpet turn. “Jennifer has a very sophisticated and daring style,” notes the design team. “She is very adventurous with necklines and fabrics but likes to show off her very toned and tan body.”
Alfred Angelo :
The key to Jolie’s classic, minimalist style, according to Alfred Angelo designer Michael Shettel, is subtlety. “She likes to keep the flash of skin limited to one particular area, such as a dramatic side-slit skirt or a daring open back,” says Shettel, who opted for a dramatic back and sheer sleeves on this re-embroidered-lace mermaid gown with a natural waist shown at left. The body-hugging design also has just a dose of Hollywood glamour with delicate crystal beading.
Shettel chose this bias-cut lace gown from his Modern Vintage collection for Aniston. “Body-skimming silhouettes and soft colors play off her skin tone while highlighting her amazing body,” he says. The charmeuse underslip and elegant lace panels accent V-neck and cap sleeves, making a look fit for an intimate outdoor wedding.
Hayley Paige :
Jolie and Pitt’s nuptials are as much about solidifying their family unit as they are about becoming husband and wife. With that in mind, Hayley Paige designed a dress for Jolie that celebrates the actress’s six children (at left). “This look embodies worldly influence by incorporating the different weaving, beading, and embroidery techniques from the five regions of her children: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, France, and Vietnam,” says Paige. The embroidered-lace-and-silk-georgette gown features an embellished capelet that removes to reveal an elegant open back—a fittingly dramatic, feminine style for the globe-trotting mama.
Paige found it easy to design a dress that flattered Aniston’s enviable beach-babe body. This ivory bias-cut charmeuse gown is an appropriately California-chic choice for the “effortless, understated, and so unbelievably cool” star. The designer gravitated toward a slinky 1930s-style silhouette that she enhanced with subtle Chantilly-lace details and sweeping godets around the skirt. “Jennifer stuns in the most simplistic and refined of silhouettes,” Paige says. “She’s a classic beauty.”
Theia creative director Don O’Neill chose family, rather than Hollywood glamour, as his inspiration for Jolie’s wedding gown (at left). “I envisioned Angelina as a wholesome, sophisticated vision of the bride that her children imagine her to be, not her sexy red-carpet signature style,” he says. His fantasy design features a long-sleeve silhouette of French Chantilly lace over a corseted sweetheart bodice in silk mousseline and organza with a tulle-appliqué hem. “The dramatic silk-tulle veil is trimmed with lace to add mystery and allure,” the designer adds. Wouldn’t you love it if your mother had this dress to pass down?
O’Neill used the haircut heard ’round the world—Aniston’s “Rachel” style from the second season of Friends—as inspiration for this one-of-a-kind wedding dress. “Jennifer has a wonderful relaxed style, which is created by her signature haircut,” explains O’Neill. “I felt the sporty look of a backless halter dress paired with the romance of a mermaid skirt would be perfect.” The French Chantilly-lace gown achieves a textural look with re-embroidered silk thread and microbeading over a nude silk-georgette lining. The skirt’s mixture of gazar, tulle, and organza creates “an ethereal cloud to accentuate Jennifer’s beautiful figure.”
Who better to dream up wedding-day couture for these A-list brides-to-be than red-carpet darling Reem Acra? The designer to the stars channeled Jolie’s oozing sex appeal into her design for the future Mrs. Brad Pitt (at left). “I am inspired by her classic elegance and effortless sex appeal. She is deliberate about her fashion choices, and that sophisticated confidence makes for the perfect modern bride,” the designer says. The sketch shows an ivory double-faced silk-crepe gown with a center-cinched bodice, an off-the-shoulder neckline, and a flared skirt—the kind of figure-hugging silhouette that evokes the star’s steamier roles.
For the classic-chic Aniston, Acra whipped up a strapless wedding gown embroidered with pearls and flowers, along with a silk-organza cape for a contemporary take on the traditional veil. It’s easy to imagine Aniston walking down the aisle in a strapless, modern-meets-classic gown that echoes our (countless) favorite dresses of hers.
