Andrea Thatcher, our US editor at Shiny Style, has been ruminating on the designer predictions on what President’s daughter Jenna Bush will be wearing to her forthcoming wedding…
While twin sister Barbara is considered the more fashionable Presidential daughter, all eyes will be on Jenna Bush when she weds Henry Hager this spring. We’re still hoping for a white house wedding, but since that seems unlikely we’ll settle for a chic designer gown.
Barbara has connections to Proenza Schouler and Lela Rose, while First Lady Laura Bush can call in heavy hitters like Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera.
What do the experts suggest for Jenna? “I would want Jenna to make the statement, and not just be about the gown itself,” Lela Rose told WWD. Rose suggested strapless sheath with a little volume on the bottom.
Arnold Scaasi thought what would best complement Jenna would be a simple and classic silk satin organza dress. If she plans to wear a train, he told WWD it should be a detachable one that “could be taken off after the ceremony and she could dance the night away. They’re young and peppy. Why shouldn’t they be able to dance around?”
