During her five-year marriage to Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston sported a swirly engagement ring the size of a baby’s fist. So, how big is the sparkler currently weighing down her finger, courtesy of newly minted fiancé Justin Theroux? Life & Style says the actor-writer-director presented Jen with a “huge emerald-cut diamond” with tapered baguettes dotting the sides. The ring is estimated to be a knuckle-crunching eight carats and is, gushes one source, “beautiful.” “She was so happy and said she loves the ring,” enthuses an insider. “I think she was overwhelmed and overjoyed by the size and beauty of it!” Theroux surprised (and presumably temporarily blinded) Aniston with the rock during a quiet dinner at Manhattan eatery Blue Hill on Aug. 10, his 41st birthday, reports People.The two had jetted to New York on a private plane from North Carolina, where the actress has been shooting “We’re the Millers,” and as they sat side by side over a quiet meal, Theroux popped the question. “Jen cried,” a source tells Us Weekly. “The proposal was simple. He was surprised she said yes, but he is so happy.”
Like many fans, I adore Jennifer, have watched her movies, and love the fact that she really seems like “the girl next door”, just funnier. So when I read that Jennifer is tying the knot for the second time, my creative mind started to think up all kinds of ideas and designs. But one question stuck with me, after the dust settled,
What would a down-to-earth, comedian that has everything, ex to one of the world’s MOST gorgeous man,( I am still jealous, and they have been divorced for some years!),wear to her second wedding.
One word came to mind- FUN
I mean, look at Jennifer’s body of work in the past 10 years, she is a risk taker, but most of these roles are comical roles. Now it would not take a rocket scientist to understand that when you are at the zenith of Hollywood stardom, you can ‘pick and choose’ your projects, and she keeps picking roles that make us laugh and think. Keeping that in mind, I thought
Every woman will tell you, even if she has been divorced 1000 times, each new marriage is like the first, that moment at the altar, she feels like this is her first time, and has the jitters to prove it. So I settled on a fleshy,light pink, almost flesh-tone. (it’s not white, and pink is toooooooo cliche’-ish, I would want jennifer to settle into her “new skin”, at least that was my thinking). I saw a dress that was designed by a noted bridal designer earlier this week, (who shall remain nameless), and it looked as if Princesses Diana was expected to be resurrected and RE-marry that horrid tampon of a man,Prince Charles once again. When designing ANYTHING for ANYONE you must be able to empathize with what your client will want, NOT what YOU want. I wanted to design a dress that had the personality of the Jennifer.
Fun, Versatile, and Carefree came to mind
I created a detachable gown skirt, revealing a cocktail dress. Fabrications satin and chiffon are to be used, with each fabrication cut and fashioned for different textures. The top is low-cut,and flattering with thin self fabric straps, and the skirt of the gown is a detachable,layered and ruched,draped chiffon with raw edges to give an edgy worn, but very beautiful look. The cocktail dress is short, flirty and sexy, made to look just like the main skirt, this time both silk ruched jersey and chiffon. The cocktail ensemble is one piece,made to allow Jennifer to dance the night away with her new husband. I can imagine in my minds eye, after a the main ceremony is over, and after a few dirty martinis, Jennifer would simply strip the gown skirt away, revealing the cocktail dress underneath, to the amazement and laughter of everybody at the reception. ( remember the dance sequence in “Along Came Polly”?) The looks are a pretty ,versatile and uncomplicated just like the bride, and most of all FUN for a woman that has a gift for making us laugh,even if it is at ourselves.
Mazel tov Jennifer and Justin, I hope this union leads to much joy and laughter:)
