True or False? I’m more excited to see Anne Hathaway in her wedding gown (date TBD) than I was to see her seven costume changes at the 2011 Academy Awards.
That would be an unequivocal True! (Glad you hold the same sentiment).
The closest we’ve ever come to seeing Hathaway in a bridal gown was for her acting role in “Bride Wars,” when she wore this stunning Vera Wang one-shoulder mermaid-cut creation. So the news that her long-time beau Adam Shulman proposed made my inner fashionista jump for matrimonial joy.
Hathaway never disappoints; she is a style maven on and off the screen. What will she decide to wear when she trades in the red carpet for an aisle?
We’ve gathered jaw-dropping sketches from six bridal designers who each have their own ideas. Now it’s up to you to vote on which one she should wear!
Claire Pettibone, Angel Rivera, Anne Barge
1. Claire Pettibone dreams up a form-fitting dress with her signature vintage, playful and bohemian flair. “The sweetheart neckline and capped sleeve highlight the décolleté,” Pettibone says. She envisions using embroidered tulle, silk charmeuse, silver guipure lace and silk ribbons on Hathaway’s design.
2. Angel Rivera drew inspiration from “the modern day princess.” Anne will surely look regal in this intricate design featuring waist-tie detail.
3. Romance, softness, royalty and love were the key words designer Anne Barge kept in mind while sketching for Hathaway. Can the actress pull off long sleeves a la Kate Middleton? Imagine lots of lace and three-dimensional embroidery.
Ines Di Santo, Junko Yoshioka, Christina Makowsky
4. I bet this embellished number will really get fiancé Adam Shulman’s tongue wagging! Ines DiSanto’s sketch oozes glamour. Notice the layered train, which helps make each angle of the dress truly unique.
5. Mermaid-style looked great on Hathaway in “Bride Wars,” so why not take it into real life? Junko Yoshioka creates a fashion-forward look with an asymmetrically draped and layered bodice, silver bead accents, a dramatic ruffled back, and a full train.
6. Christina Makowsky opted for an empire waist gown to emphasize Hathaway’s tall frame. She hoped to deliver an “elegant, opulent, and chic gown” – and that she did. Add a vintage crystal belt for extra sparkle and the actress is set to say, “I Do”!
So much tulle, so many choices!
