Hayley Paige : Wedding Gowns Designers Sketch for Jennifer Aniston and Angelina Jolie
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.”
