Brangelina's Big Day
With Brad Pitt going on record to say he and Angelina Jolie's wedding will happen “soon,” the world’s newest pastime is speculating over every detail of the genetically blessed pair’s big day. Here are a few of our prenuptial predictions...
What will Angie wear?
If there's one thing you can expect when it comes to Angelina Jolie and fashion, it's that you never know what to expect. Her history of wild styles extends to the marital arena — she married first husband Johnny Lee Miller in black leather pants and a white shirt, and the shirt bore his name inscribed in her own blood.
But being with Brad has seemed to temper her over-the-top style antics, and these days she's more likely to opt for ensembles with edge by top designers. The word on the street is that the actress has commissioned L'Wren Scott to create a custom dress... perhaps something similar to the structured, black peplum piece from the designer's Tea Time Collection?
Or will she go for a dramatic Atelier Versace gown with corseted top and full skirt, complete with a generous slit up the side? She clearly favors the fashion house, as she wore its designs to this year's Golden Globes and Oscars (and we all know how she loves to show some leg!).
We could also see her rocking a sweet Grecian-style number by one of her most frequented designers as of late, Jenny Packham.
Will Brad go dapper or down-to-earth?
The truth of the matter is that Brad could put a paper bag on his head and cover his body in ketchup and still look — dare we go there? — delicious. Over the years, he has proven just how versatile his good looks are, sexily sporting everything from metrosexual scarves and blush-hued suits to casual khakis and an unkempt button-up. And, in recent times, his most consistent accessory has been his scruffy facial hair. So what's the good word, Brad? Will you actually break out the razor for your big day? We're sure Angie would appreciate a smooth face to kiss. However, since you seem so attached to your signature scruffage and it is, in fact, Movember, we suggest you ditch your standard subtle goatee and go for something a bit bolder... a handlebar 'stache, a Fu Manchu 'stache or an "octo-beard" are all charismatic contenders.
Whether he goes with longer locks and facial hair or freshly shaven and a shorter do, we're thinking he'll choose to wear one of these three styles from his past red carpet appearances: a classic black suit and tie ensemble, a sophisticated white tux/black bowtie combo, or a more casual colored suit — with or without a tie.
Where will they tie the knot?
Trying to pinpoint the locale this jet-setting couple will settle on for their wedding day is a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack. On any given day, they're loading up their halfway-to-Duggar-size brood and heading off to an entirely different continent. Their kids hail from several countries, and the famously flighty family has homes all over the world.
Many believe the big Jolie-Pitt union will go down in the pastoral village of Correns in the south of France, where the family owns a secluded chateau. However, that almost seems too easy: Would the unconventional pair really exchange vows exactly where everyone thinks they will? Perhaps their Greek vacation earlier this year was, in fact, a scouting expedition! The family was seen dining in Halkidiki in northern Greece before heading to Santorini, where they reportedly divulged to other travelers how much they adore the area.
If they really want to throw the media for a loop, though, we think they should get married stateside. Nobody is expecting the globetrotters to get hitched here! Their home in New Orleans could prove the perfect venue, as more and more celebs are heading south to say "I do." (Just ask Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds.)
