No celebrity wedding of this generation has broken hearts quite as loudly and across the board as the matrimonial union of Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel. Timberlake, the heart-throb frontman of international phenomenon *NSYNC, and Biel, the definition of The Girl Next-Door: beautiful, smart, talented, and athletic. They’re the kind of couple that, on paper, makes you FURIOUS, but in the wild, they’re extremely cognizant and tone down the PDA for your benefit. Your heart can’t help but defrost a little because they’re soooo dadgum adorable.
After hearing rumors that Biel wore a pink dress for the ceremony, People Magazine has finally confirmed, putting the newlyweds on the cover of their latest issue. A pink wedding dress is a ballsy move, one we haven’t seen since our spirit animal Gwen Stefani tied the knot with Gavin Rossdale. And even though our hearts are still aching, it’s hard to mourn JT being off the market when you’re too busy applauding his wife’s indubitable badassery.
Jessica’s headline-making wedding dress is a custom Giambattista Valli Haute Couture one-off creation. The gown is constructed from silk mousseline and silk organza with an all-over light pink floral and a tasteful dose of ruffles. Her veil was also custom created by Valli and incorporates Biel’s own heirloom pearls. According to People, Jessica walked down the aisle to her husband-to-be playing the guitar and serenading her with a song he wrote specifically for her and that moment. AND he was wearing a Tom Ford tuxedo he helped design!
Back in 2002, Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale in a white-to-HOT-pink ombre custom Christian Dior wedding gown, specially created for the singer-designer by John Galliano. Since then, the memorable nuptial dress has been rendered so iconic that just last year, it was sent to the Victoria and Albert Design Museum in London, rightfully displayed as a work of art. Does Biel’s dress have a similar fate in its cards? Which dress do you like best? Is it even possible to pick a favorite? Let us know in the comments below!
