Considering the international scope of Angelina Jolie's approach to motherhood, one can easily imagine the actress representing her children's various cultures in the details of her wedding gown-or, at least, that was Hayley Paige's thinking. "Her presence will revolve around a promise for the future in recognition of her diverse family and her ability to positively influence others on a global scale," says Paige, who designs her own line as well as the Jim Hjelm Blush collection. "This look embodies worldly influence by incorporating the different weaving, beading, and embroidery techniques from the five regions of her children: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Namibia, France, and Vietnam." The embroidered lace and silk georgette gown is defined by an embellished caplet that removes to reveal an elegant open back.

See how nine designers-including Lela Rose, Watters, and Angel Sanchez-interpreted Jolie's style into wedding-day looks fit for Hollywood royalty.
