Third Time Lucky

Drew Barrymore became a wife for the third time last week as she tied the knot with art dealer Will Kopelman in northern California.

Barrymore and Kopelman, who have been together for 18 months, announced their engagement in January and Barrymore is pregnant with their first child, rumoured to be a girl.

The actress, 37, wanted a ‘tasteful and timeless’ gown for her wedding day, and her new father-in-law, a former CEO of fashion house Chanel, was happy to help out.

Karl Lagerfeld was personally involved in the design and manufacture of Drew’s muslin and organza Chanel gown, embellished with embroidered flowers, feathers and a black satin belt. Barrymore also sported vintage Chanel jewellery.

Good grief – I don’t care if the dress was designed by Karl Lagerfield – it’s hideously ugly. What was she thinking? What was he thinking?

“The day was perfect,” the actress told People magazine, who ran exclusive pictures from the happy day. “Everyone we love and care about was there. It was fun and meaningful as we could ever have hoped.”

Guests included Drew’s best friend Cameron Diaz, a pregnant Reese Witherspoon and her husband Jim Toth, Busy Phillips, and Jimmy Fallon.

Barrymore was married to a Welsh bar owner for six weeks at the age of 19, and had a short-lived marriage to Canadian comedian Tom Green in 2001. She has had relationships with actors Justin Long, Luke Wilson and Jamie Walters, director Spike Jonze and The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti.

    A wedding is meant to be a pledge of lifelong love and loyalty before friends and family, a statement to the community that you are together and not to be divided. It is not a fashion show and certainly not a forum for getting attention or seducing guests or strangers viewing the photos. That her father-in-law was involved in the dress design in some way is significant, and I am supposing that she to some extent wanted to be open to ideas. Anyone with resources can get a custom strapless or plunging gown made to draw attention to the shoulders or bosom or perhaps the bare back. But, a more mature woman will have the focus be on her face and appear not as a seductress but as a serious yet joyful adult making a serious commitment. I applaud Drew for this choice of style. It is at the same time tasteful, elegant, heirloom quality, well designed and fitted, and appropriate. Why should every celebrity compete for the most extreme styles on their private family days?
