Blushing bride now has a whole new meaning for Jessica Biel, who wore a rose, haute couture Giambattista Valli wedding gown for her marriage to Justin Timberlake. Posing on the cover of People magazine, Jessica is glowing and poised while Justin jumps for joy (unlike Tom Cruise, we'll let it slide this time, JT).
While run-of-the-mill virginal white is sweet, the flush from the pink silk gown adds to her newly wed radiance, making us wonder if we should all get on board with this rosy trend. Anne Hathaway is already a fan, as she recently tied the knot in a pale pink haute couture Valentino gown.
According to the Giambattista Valli press team, the strapless gown, with its light floral motif and billowing ruffles, was a blend of silk mousseline and silk organza. Jessica incorporated her 'something old' into the veil, which held her heirloom pearls. The whole wedding was a Valli affair, as everyone in the bridal party, including the Mummy-in-laws to be, wore the designer's creations. Furthermore, Jessica wore four separate Giambattista Valli designs to various events leading up to the big day.
Considering Giambattista Valli is known for his romantic, dramatic designs, it seems to have been a match made in marital heaven. The pair have been friends for some time, and before walking down the aisle, Jessica wore many of his designer duds down the red carpet. Sorry Justin, it seems this is one love affair she'll never fall out from!
In an interview with Hello! magazine, which along with People released the first images of the newlyweds, Jessica revealed that the only theme she concentrated on was 'romance, romance, romance. Kind of whimsical and dramatic.' And boy, did Justin deliver on the romance. He told Hello! that as Mrs. Timberlake walked down the aisle, he serenaded her with a song of his own creation: 'I figured if there was something I was going to be able to offer, it would be to sing her down the aisle,' he said. 'Grown men were weeping. Hopefully it's because I didn't sound bad.' Le sigh.
Well, between Justin, Jessica, and Valli, this will be an affair to remember. And as you gush over the thought of Justin's troubadour ways, take a look through our gallery of Jessica's best Giambattista Valli looks.
