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

The photo of Chelsea and Marc under the flower-bedecked arbor, looking deeply and radiantly at each other, is exquisite — pure joy on Chelsea’s face. Thank you for sharing your special day, Chelsea and Marc. God bless.

Wow, Chelsea grew up to be a unique and stunning woman. Her facial expression and light in her eyes speak volumes. She looks happy and is a vision in her wedding dress. The dress is not over done or too simple, looks just right. Wish her the best.

I wonder how many Habitat for Humanity hovels could have been built with what that wedding cost. Hypocrites.
