And the bride wore… Valentino!
Just over a month after she tied the knot with producer Brad Falchuk in a low-key Hamptons ceremony, Gwyneth Paltrow has given us an insight into her wedding day – including a first look at her fairytale bridal gown.
Posted on Goop’s website (where else?!), photos show the actress and wellness entrepreneur wearing a wedding dress designed by Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli featuring classic capped sleeves, a fitted bodice and layers of semi-transparent white lace in a Swiss dot and floral pattern – oh, and a veil to rival Meghan Markle’s. As the Goop write-up so superlatively puts it: it was “a dress that defies adjectives,” styled by Gwyneth’s close friend and long-term stylist Elizabeth Saltzman. As for the husband? A Tom Ford suit, no less. Gwyneth kept her hair and makeup pared-back, wearing her hair down in ever-so-subtle waves.
According to Paltrow’s site, the nuptials took place on a “bright fall day […] sunny and cool with a crispness in the air” – or, as the piece goes on to say, “‘the gods complied on GP’s wedding day.” After all who are they to argue with Gwynnie?
Though the #Faltrow wedding was previously rumoured to have a huge guest list, Goop reveals that just 70 of the couples closest friends and family headed out to Amagansett in the Hamptons to mark the occasion, kicking things off with an alfresco rehearsal dinner hosted by Jessica and Jerry Seinfeld. Of course, Gwyneth’s closest friends and family included Cameron Diaz, Rob Lowe, her godfather Steven Spielberg, and her Iron Man co-star Robert Downey Jr.
