Brides around the world worry about the same things. Will I find the perfect dress? Should I wear my hair up or down? What colour should I paint my nails?


“Imagine if you were Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie preparing to marry the planet’s sexiest man, Brad Pitt. She knows the world and its wife will be scrutinizing her every choice and every move” says Jessica Brown, Showbiz Editor for the Daily Star. Here, Jess predicts what to expect from the long-awaited ‘Brangelina’ marriage:

The dress

Angelina’s wedding dress will be printed and analysed by every newspaper, magazine, blogger and fashion critic across the globe. The Jolie-Pitt wedding’s set to attract more attention than the marriage of Kate Moss and Kate Middleton, combined. Editors all over the world are already poised with “wonderful” pictures of Jennifer Aniston marrying Brad eight years ago in Los Angeles, which they’ll probably use to compare the two brides. Every girl’s worst nightmare.

So what style of wedding gown will Angelina wear? I think 5ft 8 Angelina will choose a long, flowing silk gown, understated but oozing elegance. Something similar to a few of the silk designs in Jenny Packman’s 2012 bridal collection. So long as she doesn’t recreate her fashion faux pas at this year’s Oscars. Ange will never live down the hilarious ‘leg’ moment in her split-to-the-thigh black velvet Versace gown. But despite the ridicule, Hollywood insiders believe Ange will ask Versace to create her a glamorous, bespoke wedding gown. She’s been wearing Versace dresses for years to prestigious award shows and international film premieres.

The trimmings

I can’t imagine the Tomb Raider star wearing a fussy, layered veil or a long, heavy train. I think she’ll wear her hair down, with sculpted flowing curls and keep her accessories simple but striking. There will definitely not be any My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding netting or puff-ball meringue creations.

One thing I’ve been trying to work out ahead of my wedding is what colour to paint my nails. Is a French manicure too WAG-like these days? Will acrylic nails make me look like an extra on The Only Way Is Essex? Is a bold colour like red too trashy for a wedding? Anglina Jolie isn’t one to play it safe. So there’s a high chance she’ll follow her signature vampish style and go for a deep red. Although, she’s been known as the scarlet woman for long enough.

The beauty plan

My Hollywood contacts say Angelina’s secret wedding weapon is Bee Venom. Bee Venom’s been hailed the holistic answer to Botox with huge celebrity fans including Victoria Beckham, Kylie and Dannii Minogue, Michelle Pfeiffer and even the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton. Manuka Doctor has brought Bee Venom to the high street with a skincare range at Holland & Barrett

I’m also told Angelina is stocking up on Cor’s The Silver Soap to give her skin the perfect Hollywood glow. The posh soap, which includes collagen for anti-aging, is a well kept celebrity secret and loved by Hollywood beauties Rene Zellweger, Sarah Jessica Parker and Nicole Sherzinger.

On the big day Angelina’s make-up artist Bruce Grayson says she will use Eau Thermale Avène’s Thermal Water Spray to get a perfect dewy complexion. Bruce explained he’ll create a radiant sheen by using a make-up sponge sprayed with Avène Thermal Spring Water to blend in concealer.

The wedding diet

On the run up to her big day I’ve been told Angelina is on a mission to get back her curves. While soon-to-be brides worldwide are frantically trying to lose lumps and bumps Ange has enlisted celebrity chef and good friend Jamie Oliver to help her GAIN weight. Insiders say she wants to put on 10 pounds with the help of some hearty, home-cooked meals from Cockney cook Jamie. (I’m told Angelina NEVER cooks, so Brad will be whipping up some old fashioned English pub grub with some tips from Jamie.) Brad apparently hopes Ange will regain her curves and look like she did when they met filming Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005.

The guestlist

There are rumours flying around the showbiz world that Angelina wants to invite her ex husband’s Billy Bob Thornton and Jonny Lee Miller, who she’s still close to. Angelina’s admitted she doesn’t really have any female friends, but it’s likely that Brad will invite his chums George Clooney, Matt Damon, Johnny Depp and Tom Cruise.
