The months of speculation on whom Chelsea Clinton would choose to design her wedding dress are finally over — and it’s Vera Wang! The bride walked down the aisle on Saturday night in a strapless silk organza gown with a draped tulle bodice and an embellished belt designed by Wang, a Clinton family friend. The star-loved designer, a guest at the wedding in Rhinebeck, N.Y. this weekend, describes the bride as having “radiated joy, youth and happiness.” Wang also designed the bridesmaids’ dresses. Another good friend of the couples’, Burberry Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey, designed groom Marc Mezvinsky’s tuxedo as well as ties for the groomsmen and the father of the bride, former President Bill Clinton. As for the mother of the bride, who was the picture of glamour at the previous night’s rehearsal dinner, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton chose a gown designed by her go-to designer and long-time friend Oscar de la Renta. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; reporting by Sharon Cotliar

Apologys Chelsea, I like so many uttered unkind thoughts of you when early photos of you were distributed during your awkward teen years. You’ve obviously blossomed into a beautiful young lady, with an intellect to match. Congrats and sincere best wishes to you both.

Wedding dresses all tend to look alike these days. Strapless with an embellished belt or whatever you call them. Chelsea, unfortunately, inherited the looks of President Clinton’s late mother; same eyes, nose and mouth. That said, she looks pretty nice on her wedding day.


You both look a pic of happeness
good to both and may life journey
be a safe one for you both
