The true cost of love (if you’re a Clinton anyway)…

28 July 2010

Here at Grazia we are ob-sessed with everything about Chelsea Clinton’s forthcoming nuptials. Will she wear Vera Wang or Oscar de la Renta (the bride’s been spotted in both showrooms)? Will Tony Blair be seated next to Steven Spielberg? Questions, questions…

So when we awoke this morning to find an alleged full price list of their celebrations had been leaked (tut, tut) we could not have been more excited.  Any brides-to-be feeling guilty because they’ve just blown a few hundred pounds matching napkins to chair cushions should take a look at the Clinton’s wedding bill and relax…
