Fashion Wrap: Predicting Jennifer Aniston's Wedding Style & The Fashion Mag For Millionaires
14th OF August 2012
Jennifer Aniston is, as we're sure everybody in the universe now knows, engaged to Justin Theroux. RESCU engages in a little crystal ball prediction of her wedding fashion...
Jennifer Aniston Engaged - RESCU Guesses Her Wedding Style
It's the news the gossip world's been speculating about for months.
Jennifer Aniston is getting married again!
And while the tabloids explode with gossip about whether her or Angelina Jolie's nuptials will be the more lavish, RESCU is making predictions about her wedding dress style.
Aniston famously favours low-key red carpet choices. Hers is not the sort of style which embraces couture, embroidery, fuss or lace. We're predicting sharp simplicity with a beachy twist.
As for designers? Armani is always good for classic, clean tailoring, and the fashion world would explode with pleasure if she turned up in Valentino red.
However, Aniston has said in interviews that her favourite designer is an unexpected one.
Her designer of choice? Lanvin.
Alber Elbaz isn't famous for producing wedding gowns - but we can't see Aniston doing the traditional Monique L'hullier Hollywood route. Theroux is, after all, famous for his rockabilly, edgy style, and has more tattoos than your average motorbike rider.
Lanvin is having a hell of a year - RESCU has covered all of the celebrations which accompanied 10 years of Alber Elbaz's career as head of the house - and now we imagine he's waiting by the phone for that all-important phone call.
Lanvin's latest collection featured layers and layers of ribbon, long sleeves, chic black velvet and long fishtail gowns - perhaps just a bit ornate for Aniston, but gorgeous nonetheless.
We're not sure she'll turn up in white - she did for her wedding to Brad Pitt, but that's so ten years ago - and are hoping for something subtle and classic, like a silver or a gold.
She's said she's in love with Versace footwear, so we predict a pair of classic stiletto heels - or, perhaps, barefoot.
What do you think Aniston will wear for her trip down the aisle to become Mrs Theroux?

New Fashion Magazine For Millionaires Launches
Du Jour is a fashion magazine with a difference, and the difference is money.
It launches this month with a pedigree to die for: a cover with Christie Turlington shot by Bruce Weber, editors headhunted from Elle and InStyle, and a fashion shoot in American wealthy holiday enclave The Hamptons.
However, its big selling point? The fact that you have to be a millionaire to subscribe.
To pass muster as worthy of receiving the magazine, which exists in both print and digital forms, you can't be a mere pretender. You must have a net worth of $5 million or more, a house worth $1.5 million, and five other measures of extreme wealth.
You'd think this would restrict the readership - but there are more millionaires in the world than ever before, and the rising amounts in countries like China and Brazil will want to get in on the action.
It's a way to get attention - but it's already receiving criticism from the press as too lavish for a recession-hit time.
And the $37,500 Aston Martin bicycle featuring in the pages might not help.
It's also being touted as too broadly public to be exclusive - as brash or nouveau-riche, like wearing one designer head-to-toe. The true exclusive magazines are secretive affairs, specialising in elitist meet-ups and private give-aways.
Du Jour certainly seems set to make a splash.
Would you buy it if you were rich enough to have the chance?
