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

Denny … Who made you the expert on what Vera Wang is tired of and what Chelsea should be daring about? You have no clue about what the two of the them should think or do. Why didn’t you go to the wedding? Oh, I know. You were too busy being a know-it-all! Ha Ha.

Chelsea looks utterly elegant. I love the belt and gathered tulle on the skirt. I’m so happy for her and her new husband!

I have one thing to say about any negative comments … YOU ARE INSENSITIVE, LOW-CLASS TWITS! You should be nice.
