Eva Amurri: My Wedding Gown Is 'Very Me'
She’s already found “the one” in fiancé Kyle Martino, but it wasn’t until just recently that bride-to-be Eva Amurri found the other “one” — her wedding dress.
After trying on “a ton of dresses” in what she called a “weird, long process,” the actress settled on a gown by designer Lela Rose. “It’s not a princess dress,” Amurri, daughter of Susan Sarandon, told PEOPLE at the Lela Rose fashion show at New York’s Lincoln Center Saturday. “That’s all I’m saying. It’s very me. I felt like it was already hanging in my closet.”
Amurri (pictured in Lincoln Center’s Mercedes-Benz Star Lounge) perused dozens of designer dresses, but “they didn’t feel like me. I just felt like my head was stuck on a different girl’s body.” After finding the Lela Rose dress online, she went for a fitting and after a few changes, fell in love. “I tried it on and it was over,” she shared. Rose also designed Sarandon’s mother-of-the-bride dress, as well as looks for the bridesmaids.
Revealing that her wedding day is “right around the corner,” Amurri said she can’t wait to be married. “It’s been a long engagement … we took the year to get married,” she said. “Now it’s getting closer, I feel great. I can’t wait.”
