Following in the tradition of other star brides like Carrie Underwood, Chelsea Clinton had not only one, but two gorgeous wedding dresses from designer (and wedding guest) Vera Wang! The bride swapped out her strapless ivory gown with a swirling ballgown skirt of laser cut organza that she walked down in the aisle for a tulle Grecian-inspired gown with a black ribbon belt and a criss-cross back for the reception. No word on whether her bridesmaids changed out of their own Vera Wang strapless lavender chiffon gowns with plum bows for the party portion of the night. Wang was thrilled to have been a part of the wedding, saying in a release that “It was an honor and a privilege to dress Chelsea on her wedding day.” –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

Let’s face it, those of you who say she is pretty need prescription glasses. Pretty she is not. This is a horse face!!! Rather reminds me of Camilla. Poor thing. Hope she has a good personality and we know she has money.

She looks beautiful. I have to agree with another poster thought that says the former President does not look well at all. The comments being made that he was forced to lose weight by his daughter…..that sounds questionable. If so, why didn’t she insist that her mother lose weight?

Bill looks too thin, is he sick?

Okay, it is a beautiful dress but this all seems a bit hypocritical to me. The Dems are the ones saying how broke we are and then the largest profiled dems in the nation right now decided that it’s okay to spend millions on a wedding…..limosine liberals at their best.

Best of Luck to the couple…

WHOA! Bill looks better with a little more meat on his bones! He is way to thin!

That dress is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! I think it’s just a bad picture of Mr. Clinton. I saw him on TV, filmed the day before the wedding, and he looked wonderful!

queenie – and you have the name of a dog. I won’t say you LOOK like a dog. Dogs are prettier than you.

Just one day prior, wearing the jeans and black shirt, Bill Clinton looked totally healthy and relaxed. Yet, one day later, wearing dressy clothes, and at a very emotional time, he did not look well. He looked gaunt. Only 24 hours had passed. This was attributable to the emotionality and attire.

The way Chelsea smiled, and the look in her husband’s eyes, made her look more beautiful than beautiful.

Years ago, on the Left Bank in Paris, I met one of her teachers. She was not allowed to talk about Cheslea, but did say that she was a wonderful child. She has evolved into a wonderful young woman.

And, why wouldn’t wealthy, educated, prominent people go “all out” for the wedding of their only child? This is not a girl who will change husbands every 90 days like some celebrities do. Should they have made this in a gymasium and served hero sandwiches? Get real.

This is a lovely, educated, refined, and deeply intelligent, young woman, daughter of a former president. She loves, and is loved by her parents. Her gown, her smile, and Mark’s eyes were truly lovely. She was given opportunities and did not squander them. All the mean-spirted people should keep their thoughts to themselves.
