Sketches of Anne Hathaway's Wedding Dress Released: All About Her Custom Valentino Gown
More details have emerged about Anne Hathaway's Valentino wedding gown for her Big Sur nuptials to Scott Shulman -- and how the dreamy dress came to be.
Though Hathaway's good friend, Valentino Garazani, recently retired, passing the designing reigns for his namesake line over to Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, the famed Italian couturier designed Hathaway's gown himself.
A true labor of love, Valentino's vision for his good friend's dress was first brought to life in recently-revealed sketches of the gown before seamstresses at the designer's couture atelier in Rome got to work bringing the custom creation to life.
The sketch reveals more details of the romantic gown that can't be seen from the pictures taken of Hathaway in her gown on her wedding day -- including one that surprised us...
Though she tends to keep it classic on the red carpet, the train of Hathaway's ethereal gown was infused with a subtle touch of pink.
According to a rep for Valentino, the off-the-shoulders stunner was made of ivory silk point d'espirit tulle and featured a pink hand-painted train embroidered with satin flowers that perfectly fit with the romantic style Hathaway favors for the red carpet.
The dress was such a showstopper that the actress hardly accessorized, skipping jewelry, but covering her short pixie cut with a '20s-inspired headpieces that featured lace ribbon and a large flower encrusted with crystal beading that sparkled in the sunlight.
