Anne Hathaway looked sensational on her wedding to Adam Shulman this past weekend in a couture gown by Valentino.
Now, for fashionistas left disappointed by limited photos from the Big Sur ceremony, the label has release a sketch revealing exactly what the gown looked like.
The illustration reveals that the hem of the gown and veil was tinted a soft pink, a romantic and unexpected touch that, quite literally, turned Ms Hathaway, 29, into a blushing bride.

The bodice of the off-shoulder creation, we can now better see, is very fitted, with the lightest of layers billowing from the hip into a full skirt.
A representative for the label revealed to People.com that the dress was made from 'ivory silk point d’esprit tulle'. The train was 'hand-painted' and 'embroidered with satin flowers'.

The most unusual part of Ms Hathaway's
bridal look, however, was the headpiece – a wide lace ribbon embellished
with crystals and a flower, worn over her close-cropped hair to hold
the Twenties-inspired veil in place.
The gown was designed by Valentino Garavani himself, who stepped down from the label he founded four years ago. The 80-year-old couturier took on the special commission only because Ms Hathaway is a longtime friend who he says is 'like a daughter'.
Ms Hathaway and Mr Shulman wed on Saturday in Big Sur, California, apparently with the help of the same wedding planner who organised Natalie Portman's recent nuptials.
A source told People: 'The wedding was lovely and Anne looked gorgeous… She looked very pretty.'
