As verified by People, the wedding dress of Chelsea Clinton was designed by Vera Wang. We’ll post photos of the Vera Wang designed wedding dress as soon as they are available (updated with video and photos):
Surrounded by 400 friends, and her parents Bill and Hillary (who wore Oscar de la Renta), the former first daughter, 30, wed her longtime boyfriend Marc Mezvinsky, 32, in Rhinebeck, N.Y., Saturday. She wore a dress designed by Vera Wang, a family friend, who was also in attendance. Shortly after the ceremony, President Clinton and Secretary Clinton released a statement. “Today, we watched with great pride and overwhelming emotion as Chelsea and Marc wed in a beautiful ceremony at Astor Courts, surrounded by family and their close friends. We could not have asked for a more perfect day to celebrate the beginning of their life together, and we are so happy to welcome Marc into our family. On behalf of the newlyweds, we want to give special thanks to the people of Rhinebeck for welcoming us and to everyone for their well-wishes on this special day.”
Vera Wang has been creating wedding gowns for so many celebrities (Jennifer Lopez, Jessica Simpson and Khloe Kardashian to name a few) and perhaps Clinton wanted the classic, romantic and fairy-tale princess aesthetic that Wang does so well.
Her dramatic veil and the silver-jeweled embroidery that wrapped around the gown defining her dainty waist were very romantic touches and certainly made the gown feel much more special than your average strapless style. And the elegant touches such as her monochromatic ivory bouquet and simple makeup and upswept hair were smart choices as not to interfere with the volume of her dress and veil. Wonderful dress, Vera!
