So, what did you think of the dress? Of course, we're talking about the Armani wedding gown of Katie Holmes - or is that Katie Cruise?
I heard a couple of folks say it didn't have that "wow" factor they were hoping for, but that she did look very pretty. My thoughts? The dress really suited Katie, and I liked the idea that his shirt was made from some of the same fabric. Cute, huh?
I rang up Sanea Sommerfield, co-designer of Miosa Couture wedding gowns on J Street, to get her opinion. She agrees that Katie's personality and look is more classic and elegant than, say, flashy Hollywood glamour.
"The dress portrayed that," Sommerfield says. "Any designer working on a wedding gown has to focus on the woman's personality and not what she, or the groom, wants her to wear - if (the designer) does that, the dress loses its beauty."
She adds that Katie is more "girl next door. She's not so much the starlet type. She's much more understated, and she's young, too (27)."
The images I saw of the happy couple were interesting for another reason. I think Armani didn't want the dress to overwhelm Katie - or Tom. Because of their closeness in height, it also appears as if Katie scrunched down a bit so as not to top her new husband. The pics definitely had sort of a sweet prom feel to them.
But who picked the photo location? It looked like maybe the dungeon of the castle.
As for the wedding guests, we saw a whole lot more of folks like Jennifer Lopez (right) and Victoria Beckham (left), flitting from one event to the other, than we did of TomKat - although we did get a nice peek at them pre-ceremony. Beckham, who reportedly attended the wedding sans her husband (he had soccer practice, natch), and Lopez are both shown either shopping or heading to the airport the day after the nuptials. Gotta make one last stop at Dior in Rome before flying home.
Next burning question: What time did they clear the castle?
Last burning question: Will Tom and Katie honeymoon with the kids?
