Anne Hathaway may have played a princess for 2001's The Princess Diaries, but that was nothing compared to her fairy-tale nuptials. When she wed Adam Shulman last weekend, it was in a custom design created by legendary couturier Valentino Garavani, who retired from his eponymous label four years ago. As even the sketch above shows, the strapless gown was breathtaking: painstakingly crafted from ivory silk and d'esprit tulle by seamstresses in Valentino's Rome atelier. The train was hand-painted with shades of pink and embroidered with satin flowers. A 1920s-inspired veil topped off the look, which featured a large flower covered in crystal beads. "Anne is like a daughter to him," the label told in a statement. We can only imagine—a look like this is a labor of love.
