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

Barbara says “To (sic) bad she looks like a British frump” What a sweeping statement and an extraordinary comment to make of someone celebrating their wedding day. I can only assume that Barbara has the same aversion to the British as she has to Chelsea – obviously she has met many British and frowns upon our penchant for polyester and of course has met Chelsea herself! The dress is beautiful and Chelsea looks gorgeous – she has never set out to be a hollywood starlet and looks understated and happy.
