Anne Hathaway's unique Valentino wedding gown

Continuing from the topic of wedding veil, Hollywood A-lister Anne Hathaway also said "I Do" in a secret sunset wedding at the scenic coast of Big Sur, California on 29 Sept 2012. The 29-year-old actress tied the knot with actor/jewellery design Adam Shulman.

The Dark Knight Rises star who recently chopped off her hair for the Les Misérables movie, sported a super-short pixie cut and didn't wear any extensions for her wedding. A lot of women probably imagine long flowing locks pinned into a meticulously braided updo (not that there's anything wrong with that) underneath a sheer veil, but Anne just proved that short hair on your wedding day can be just as beautiful.

 Her romantic off the shoulder dress that had a delicate lace trim was a vintage inspired dress personally designed for the bride by couture designer Valentino Garavani. The bridal gown featured intricate lace and embroidery and was paired with a dramatic floor-length veil and vintage-inspired headpiece

Anne also reported wearing minimal jewellery which is quite an interesting choice, given her husband is a jewellery designer and co-designed her engagement ring.

However, not all of the people agree — especially on the matter of the headpiece.“looks like she had a serious head injury… hope she’s okay,” joked Twitter user danielleNhale. “I like the dress, but the head piece and bridal veil are awful,” added @SummerMarisa.

While there were other criticisms of the headpiece over on, the dress received pretty positive reviews. “Beautiful gown and it’s NOT STRAPLESS! Yay,” wrote SavedByGrace. Aliciad2649 agreed. “I LOVE the headpiece and the dress is classic. Anne’s a lady, through and through.”

Personally, I think with the face like Anne's, she can easily pull off any looks, including this one. That veil and headband combo complimented the pixie cut perfectly.

As usual, dirt and dress doesn't play well together (unless you are going for a "trash-the-dress" photo), so get a helper to manage the dress and veil. It is usually the job of the bridesmaid, but husbands, you can start your new life on the right foot by learning from Adam.

Anne's wedding comes as a bit of a surprise as she previously insisted the wedding would not take place until 2013 because of her work commitments. She told Hello magazine recently:
"We're getting married, probably sometime next year-ish. Not this year, it’s too big with two films coming out."
