Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Engaged: Let The Wedding Dress Predictions Begin!

So it seems bridal fever has finally reached Brangelina Towers – yippee! As Grazia Daily reported on Friday, Brad Pitt has popped the question, proposing to Angelina Jolie with a mega rock that he co-designed with jeweler pal Robert Procop. What a gent he is.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie Are Getting Married: Let The Wedding Dress Predictions Begin!

The news has, naturally, got us Graziettes hyperventilating with excitement. Okay, so a date hasn't been set yet and Brad and Ange are more likely to get hitched on a deserted Tibetan mountain than in front of the world’s media a la Kim Kardashian but! This hasn’t stopped us from picturing THE perfect wedding dress (what? who's getting carried away?). Besides, chances are People magazine will bag at least one shot of the Big Brangelina Day – with the bazillion dollar fee going to a suitable charity, of course. So, based on her recent red carpet outings, let's indulge our whims with a look at what Mrs-Pitt-to-be MIGHT wear for her nupitals...

Angelina Jolie Versace wedding dress Angelina Jolie Versace wedding dress

VERSACE

For her biggest all-eyes-on-me moments, Angelina turns to the va-va-voom of Versace. Donatella is the lady behind the magnificent white and red gown that the actress wore to this year’s Golden Globes as well as that black right-leg-popping number for the Oscars, so will she be creating that all-important bridal gown too? We can totes see Ange going Grecian in a drapey dress like the one that graced the Spring Summer 2012 catwalk (above left) - but possibly without the sparkly starfish. Admittedly, Versace’s signature curve-huggers with plunging necklines and thigh-high slits are more suited to the red carpet than the wedding aisle, but we’re sure Donatella could rustle up a minimal version with a gorgeously fitted bodice.

ELIE SAAB

For prettiness with a touch of oomph, Angelina need look no further than the master of feminine frocks, Elie Saab. The actress has already embraced Saab-ian red carpet power – most recently wearing a floaty greige number for the Palm Springs Festival – so we’d love to see her opting for a slim-fitting evening-esque wedding dress like the above left design with slight sparkle to match her bling ring. And considering Disney Princess poufiness has never been Jolie’s cuppa tea, may we suggest the dreamy-yet-understated gown that Arizona Muse showcased on the designer’s Couture catwalk (above right). That mint green hue would work wonderfully with her dark tresses AND it'd make a nice alternative to the customary bridal fare, dontcha think? Because although we’re not expecting vials of blood this time, Angie isn’t the type to go conventional.

ALEXANDER MCQUEEN

...And yet we can’t help but dream of McQueen. For starters, Brad and Angelina are the Hollywood version of our Royal couple and evidence suggests Angelina wants to be Kate Middleton*. Yup, not only has Ange copy-catted those luscious tumbling curls but she’s taken to wearing ladylike lace, sophisticated shifts and near-identical Jenny Packham gowns just like our DoC – wouldn’t it be a treat to see her copying the Duchess’ aisle style too? Kate’s Alexander McQueen dress of Royal Wedding day was classic and romantic with a lace bodice, pleated satin skirt and 9 foot train so although La Jolie may not go QUITE as dramatic or traditional, who better than Sarah Burton to create another highly-anticipated and truly sumptuous bridal gown? One thing’s for sure: Ms Burton knows how to keep schtum.

JENNY PACKHAM

Speaking of Angelina’s affinity for Jenny Packham, the Brit frock-maker would be an excellent choice. Not only did Ange look divine in the designer’s slinky black gown at this year’s SAG Awards but Packham’s bridal wear offers up more than enough elegant options. Take the beauties above, if you will, which come from JP's latest Spring Summer 2012 collection. While the slinky satin number (left) is oh-so-Jolie, the embellished chiffon dress with an empire waist and demure sheer sleeves (right) would be ideal for a ceremony at the couple’s ginormous Chateau in France, non?

    2015 Chevrolet Trax small SUV rolls back to America

    For the past two years, car shoppers from Acapulco to Winnipeg could wander into their Chevy dealers and kick the tires on a city-sized sport utility vehicle named the Trax — and about 90,000 have done so. Today, Chevy revealed the version of the Trax it will bring to the United States, for those less well-heeled buyers who want the shape of an SUV without the window sticker they usually carry.

    Ford Transit Skyliner concept revives the ultra-luxury van

    “Once you do stand-up, you don’t want to go back.” No, we’re not talking about comedy, but rather an emerging trend in luxury transport that’s bringing us ever taller, more capacious, more pimpdillyicious limousines. The quote came from a Ford designer, Tim Stoehr, predicting an increase in interest in limos based on big vans like the new Transit. Of course, these are nothing new; up-fitters have taken quite kindly to the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and apparently Ford is chomping at the bit to get in on the action, too. So Ford enlisted the help of the largest Ford dealer in the world, Galpin Auto Sports in Van Nuys, Calif., to help design and build its first super-lux Transit concept, dubbed the Skyliner.

    Amazon to release smartphone later this year: report

    Amazon is preparing to release a smartphone in the second half of 2014, thrusting itself into a market already crowded with Apple and Samsung models, The Wall Street Journal reported. The company aims to announce its new product by the end of June and ship to customers by the end of September in time for the holidays, the Journal said in a Friday report, citing unnamed people briefed on the matter. Amazon, it said, hopes to differentiate its phone from other models with a screen that displays hologram-like three-dimensional images, which can be viewed without special glasses. Earlier this month the retailer unveiled a new media streaming device, Amazon Fire TV, which it touted as simplifying the experience of watching video online.

    One dead as S. Korea ferry with 476 passengers sinks

    South Korea's coastguard said Wednesday one person had been killed as it struggled to rescue 476 people -- mostly high school students -- aboard a ferry that ran aground and sank off the southern coast. "The ferry is almost completely submerged," Lee said, adding that a detachment of South Korean Navy SEALS were taking part in the rescue. Of the 450 passengers on board the ferry bound for the southern resort island of Jeju, 325 were students from a high school in Ansan, south of Seoul. The 6,825-tonne ferry, which had sailed out of the western port of Incheon on Tuesday evening, ran into trouble some 20 kilometres (13 miles) off the island of Byungpoong.
