Angelina Jolie is Now a Pitt
Walking down the aisle in a gown covered with doodles is not the dream dress most brides would have in mind for their big day. But then most brides are not Hollywood star Angelina Jolie, 39, who wed her longtime partner, actor Brad Pitt, 50, last month. Earlier this week, photos from the secret Brangelina wedding were published in both People and Hello! magazines, ending much speculation over the details of her gown. From the front, it looked like any other traditional white satin gown, but the back was a real surprise. It featured drawings done by the couple's six children - Maddox, 13; Pax, 10; Zahara, nine; Shiloh, eight; and six-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - which were embroidered on the gown and veil. While the creation by Donatella Versace and the Jolie-Pitt brood may have looked like something out of an art-and-craft session, the general consensus was that the doodles added meaning to the occasion. It drew comments like "cute, unique and lovely" from netizens worldwide. Among the drawings of flowers, teddy bears, animals, bikes and aeroplanes were the phrases "Ma famille" (my family in French) and "Buttock Fattock", presumably a made-up word. Some netizens said the groom should have donned the T-shirt he was spotted wearing in July, which had a sketch of him and Jolie done by their youngest daughter Vivienne. In an interview with Hello! magazine, Jolie said: "I wanted the kids to be a part of everything, including the dress, because that's our family. That represents the way we live our life together. The embellishments may have won approval from the public but fashion insiders here are divided on the design of the dress. "Their relationship is quite the reverse of an ordinary couple. They chose to build a family while working through a relationship," adds the freelance writer.
