Well, not really.
But ever since news of her engagement to Justin Theroux broke in August, gossip mags have openly speculated about every detail of the wedding process – from Justin’s romantic proposal to their star-studded engagement party, from wedding day guest list to possible wedding date and location.
So it’s only fair that I should speculate on her wedding dress.
Apparently Victoria Beckham, Carolina Herrera, and Valentino are all in the running to design it. And while I’m sure they will create a completely new design, I’ve picked my favorites from each designer’s collections that most embody Jennifer Aniston’s unique style.
Jennifer has worn Valentino on the red carpet more times than I can count, but here are five of my favorites…
Valentino does not currently have a bridal line – which didn’t stop him from designing Anne Hathaway’s pink stunner this fall – but these are a couple each from a bridal line he designed for Pronovias in 2010 and his spring 2012 line. While I would be surprised to see Jen wearing florals down the aisle, I can definitely see her wearing a classic, flowy Valentino frock on her wedding day.
Carolina Herrera is a little more challenging because I can’t find any photos of Jen wearing CH on the red carpet. But the Carolina Herrera bridal collection effortless fuses classic elegance with modern trends – an ideal designer for Jennifer Aniston.
Though I doubt she’d actually choose to wear black on her wedding day, I can easily imagine Jen redesigning this first bridal gown with pink accents instead, as has become quite the fashion trend lately. With just a simple color switch, this dress could showcase Jen’s “girl next door” image and highlight her fashion forward style.
Speaking of which, I would also not be surprised to see Jennifer Aniston wearing a suit on her wedding day. She certainly hasn’t shied away from wearing suits accented with feminine details on the red carpet! This Carolina Herrera suit has both soft romantic touches and strong, careful lines – much like our resilient bride to be.
Of course peplum is everywhere these days, including on Jennifer Aniston. This dress would show off her pilates-toned shoulders and California sun-kissed skin, and still look completely different from the beaded halter gown she wore for her wedding to Brad Pitt.
While we don’t have photos of Jennifer Aniston actually wearing a Victoria Beckham design, we know she admires the budding fashion designer. And, perhaps more importantly, it is rumored that Angie turned down Victoria, choosing instead to wear Versace for her wedding to Jen’s famous ex. Mrs. Beckham was reportedly crushed by the future Mrs. Pitt’s decision, and it didn’t take her long to “switch teams”. Ah, the drama never ends…
In any case, here are a few of my favorite Victoria Beckham designs that could be adapted for Jen’s wedding.
Certainly the first dress is not exactly “wedding” material, but I love that take on a halter neck, and I think it’s one that would flatter Jen, especially combined with a soft tulle skirt. The next dress was love at first sight of cap sleeve. I’ve seen more and more bridal gowns featuring cap sleeves – it’s a classic look and universally flattering, perfect for Jennifer’s wedding gown.
If not for her wedding, I could definitely see Jen rocking this one-shoulder gown on the red carpet. All that’s missing is a nice slit on the leg for ease of movement as well as an opportunity to show off her gorgeous legs. Finally, if the rumor mill’s musings happen to be true and Jennifer Aniston is looking for an elegant strapless gown with simple lines, Victoria Beckham has proven she can do that well too.
Of the three designers, Victoria Beckham is definitely the wild card. But you know what they say about a woman scorned…
What do you think? Will Jennifer Aniston pick Valentino, Carolina Herrera, or Victoria Beckham? Or, someone else altogether?
