It’s all matrimonial this weekend*. Chelsea ended up wearing a strapless silk organza gown with a draped tulle bodice and an embellished belt by Vera Wang as seen in the photo above. Burberry creative director Christopher Bailey designed Marc Mezvinsky’s tuxedo as well as ties for the groomsmen and former president Bill Clinton. Secretary of State and mother-of-the-bride Hillary Clinton wore Oscar de la Renta.
*Our favourite Simpson got married today, too.
Rumoured to be wed to Marc Mezvinsky on July 31st, Chelsea Clinton has been seen visiting both Oscar de la Renta and Vera Wang in recent days which has caused much speculation over her official dress designer. My guess is for the de la Renta corner – considering the understated and almost political beauty of his dresses. Vera is the ultra-nuptial designer, but seems a little too daring for what you will see below, is a very HUGE affair.
