New bride Angelina Jolie once told Marie Claire magazine that: “Artists raise their children differently.” Maybe this is true for artists with big bucks, where ‘differently’ is often synonymous with ‘expensive.’ But beyond the fact that it sounds more than slightly pretentious when anyone calls themselves an ‘artist’ (it’s like calling yourself a rebel) there’s no denying that Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie got their artistic kids involved in their wedding on 8/23.
When American royalty marries-and let’s face it Hollywood celebs are indeed American royalty-it is big news…even if the American royalty marries in France, like Brad and Angelina did. But beyond the big news about the day, and the pictures from it, what seems to have hit the net is how involved Brangelina’s kids actually were in the ceremony.
Beyond ten-year-old Pax baking the cake (as Jolie said “all eight of us are getting married,”) she might indeed be rearing her kids differently than the everyday mom’s and dad’s when one considers her Luigi Massi tailored dress came complete with a veil covered with the couples’ many kids’ drawings.
“Vivienne, Knox and, indeed, all six of our children are such wonderful artists,” the 39 year old daughter of Jon Voight said. “And what better place to reflect their creative talents than my gown.”
Jolie’s veil and train sported motorbikes, Eiffel Towers, “mouse-like creatures” and other artwork rendered by the kids. The words “buttock fattock” were also embroidered on the back of the dress, just about where one’s buttock fattock would be.
Fashion statement or question? New trend for wedding dresses of the future? A celebrated couples’ overindulgence of their kids? A slap in the face to wedding couture the fashion world will never recover from? Who truly knows. All that is true for now is that the world is talking about Brad and Angelina’s wedding, and their kids once again.
