So we know that Benedict Cumberbatch and Sophie Hunter got married on Valentine’s Day this year (altogether now, aww…) but we haven’t had a chance to take a look at what Hunter wore to her romantic wedding, until now.
The cat’s now out of the bag as Valentino posted a picture of Hunter during her dress fitting on their Instagram account, with the caption: “Beautiful Sophie Hunter with Creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli prepping her couture dress for her March wedding to Benedict Cumberbatch. #magicmoment#sophiehunter#benedictcumberbatch photographed by #AnnieLeibovitz for @voguemagazine”
From the picture, we must say that the metallic silver creation looks divine on Hunter and does well to accentuate her body even as she was in the second trimester of her pregnancy — we hardly noticed a bump! The “high-waisted medieval gown with high neck and long sleeves made with a stiff metallic lace in light silver embroidered with motifs of vines and pomegranates” was the result of a three-hour brainstorm session with the designers. The wedding dress also came with its matching silk velvet cape in case of gloomy weather.
Sophie Hunter joins other actresses including Anne Hathaway and Elizabeth Taylor, who both opted for Valentino wedding dresses on their big day.
