Angelina Jolie has reportedly chosen L’Wren Scott to create the dress for her wedding to Brad Pitt.
According to Grazia magazine, Angelina Jolie requested L’Wren Scott, who is best known for her chic and sophisticated red carpet designs, to fashion a custom-made gown for her wedding.
“She’s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn’t important to her… Of all the people she’s met with she feels L’Wren is the one that understands her body the most,” a source told the magazine.
The source added: “Angelina wanted someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns. L’Wren is famed for designing clothes to suit taller, thin women like herself.”
Angelina Jolie, 37, has worn L’Wren Scott’s eponymous label on numerous occasions.
In 2008 Angelina Jolie wore a black dress to the premiere of Brad Pitt’s film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and in 2011 she opted for an unfussy red number for the Moneyball premiere.
Angelina Jolie has been married twice before, to Jonny Lee Miller between 1996 and 1999 and then Billy Bob Thornton, from 2000 to 2003.
For her first wedding Angelina Jolie famously sported an unconventional ensemble consisting of black rubber trousers and a white T-shirt emblazoned the groom’s name written with her own blood.
Brad Pitt’s marriage to Jennifer Aniston lasted five years before they announced they were divorcing in early 2005 – which came after he had met Angelina Jolie on the set of Mr. & Mrs. Smith.
Brangelina – as they became known – quickly became a Hollywood power couple, with a brood of six children; five-year-old Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, aged 3, along with three adopted children Maddox, 10, Pax, 8, and Zahara, 7.
Although no further details of their nuptials, including the date, have emerged, it is thought that they will stage the event at their house in the South of France.
Former model L’Wren Scott, who has been in a relationship with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger since 2002, has dressed Angelina Jolie many times for red carpet appearances, as well as the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz.
Fitting should also be easy to arrange as L’Wren lives in the house next door to the one Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt purchased in Richmond, Surrey, earlier this year.
