As the future bride of one of Britain’s favourite actors, all eyes have been Sophie Hunter and her epic red carpet wardrobe of late. With her blossoming pregnancy and her fiancee’s Oscar nomination, life in the spotlight has certainly amped up a gear for the gorgeous brunette.
Speculation of what she will be wearing at both the Oscars and, of course, at her wedding has been one of the most pondered fashion questions since Amal married George Clooney last September. And yesterday, it looked as if Sophie would be leaning towards Valentino to design her gown.
Attending the couture spring/summer 2015 show in Paris yesterday, Sophie had the hottest ticket in town and was on the arm of Anna Wintour – the ultimate woman in the business to be giving you style tips for your big day. Making her very first fashion show appearance on the front row, while sat next to the editor of American Vogue no less, it certainly seemed as if Sophie was giving us a little clue into what she would be wearing on her big day.
The stunning couture collection was full of epic lace gowns which were totally in keeping with Sophie’s demure yet fashion-forward style. Plumping mostly for floral Erdem dresses on the red carpet but also making a splash in brown leather Emilia Wickstead in December, Sophie has shown us that she doesn’t just stick to one formula and is certainly open to other designers.
Whether Sophie will wear Valentino for her wedding, we will have to wait and see. The gorgeous couple are apparently due to marry before she gives birth this summer so we won’t have to wait TOO long. Before that though will be her appearance at the Oscars where Cumberbatch is nominated for Best Actor – Sophie will no doubt make a striking appearance in whatever she chooses to wear and we really, really hope to see that little baby bump!
