Bride-to-be Angelina Jolie, has reportedly chosen L'Wren Scott to create the dress for her wedding to Brad Pitt.
According to Grazia she requested the U.S. designer, who is best known for her chic and sophisticated red carpet designs, to fashion a custom-made gown for her big day.
‘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 told the magazine.
Speculation: Every choice regarding Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's wedding is sure to cause a media frenzy, but Angelina's dress designer will certainly be the one most fans are interested in
They added: ‘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 actress, 37, has worn L'Wren's eponymous label on numerous occasions.
In 2008 she wore a black dress to the premiere of Brad’s film The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and in 2011 she opted for an unfussy red number for the Moneyball premiere.
Jolie and Pitt, who have three biological children together and three adopted, announced their engagement six months ago. They had been together seven years.
At the time Brad's spokeswoman Cynthia Pett-Dante said: 'It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time.'
Pitt designed the 10-carat diamond engagement ring, which is thought to be worth $250,000, in collaboration with jeweller Robert Procop.

He said: 'Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realised over a year-long collaboration with Robert,' Procop’s team said in a statement.
'He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect.'
Jolie has been married twice before, to Jonny Lee Miller between 1996 and 1999 and then Billy Bob Thornton, from 2000 to 2003.
For her first wedding she famously sported an unconventional ensemble consisting of black rubber trousers and a white T-shirt emblazoned the groom's name written with her own blood.
Brad's marriage to Jennifer Aniston lasted five years before they announced they were divorcing in early 2005 – which came after he had met Jolie on the set of Mr & Mrs Smith.
Brangelina – as they became known – quickly became a Hollywood power couple, with a brood of six children; five-year-old Shiloh and twins Knox and Vivienne, aged three, along with three adopted children Maddox, 10, Pax, eight, and Zahara, seven.
Although no further details of their nuptials, including the date, have emerged, it is thought that they will stage the event at their 35million estate in the South of France.
L'Wren Scott, who has been with Mick Jagger for 10 years, tends to design clothes for tall, slender women like herself, which may be why Jolie feels she 'understands her body'
Former model L'Wren Scott, who has been in a relationship with Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger since 2002, has dressed Jolie many times for red carpet appearances, as well as the likes of Sarah Jessica Parker, Nicole Kidman and Penelope Cruz.
Fitting should also be easy to arrange as L’Wren lives in the house next door to the one Angelina and Brad purchased in Richmond, Surrey, earlier this year.
