Angelina Jolie has reportedly chosen designer L'Wren Scott to create a custom wedding gown for her nuptials to Brad Pitt, and the claim has fueled speculation that the pair may have set a date for their big day.
The American fashion designer was reportedly chosen for her signature red carpet gowns and Jolie, who was allegedly bombarded with offers from other eager designers, believes that Scott best understands her physique.
"She's been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn't important to her ... Of all the people she's met with she feels L'Wren is the one that understands her body the most," a source reportedly told Grazia magazine.
"Angelina wanted someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns. L'Wren is famed for designing clothes to suit taller, thin women like herself," the source went on.
Jolie and Pitt, who have been together for seven years, confirmed their engagement in April and the wedding dress report has fueled growing suspicions that the couple is planning to wed in the near future.
It was previously claimed the pair, who shares six children, had begun construction on what appeared to be a large white reception hall. It is being built behind a chapel on their $60 million dollar southern France estate.
"It's a place that they all absolutely adore. With the vineyards and the gorgeous wide-open spaces, they will really be able to create a dream wedding, right on their own property," a source previously told OK! magazine about the couple's French property.
The wedding, which will mark Jolie's third marriage and Pitt's second, is reportedly scheduled to be a small, low-key event inside their 35-bedroom French Château Miraval. Guests allegedly include Pitt's parents Bill and Jane and renowned jeweler Robert Procop, the man who made Jolie's engagement ring.
The couple has not yet officially confirmed a wedding date.
