Camila Alves wed her longtime beau, Matthew McConaughey, in Texas last week, and now we have all the details on what she wore for her walk down the aisle! Alves asked family friend and fellow Brazilian Ducarmo Castelo Branco, 78, to design her embellished lace gown, which was handmade in the bride’s native country by eight seamstresses. “Ducarmo has been making wedding dresses for her entire life,” Alves, told People. “I guess you can say she has been planning this design for over 20 years.”
Upping the sparkle, she topped off the dress with a diamond Neil Lane headpiece and 10-carat earrings, featuring pear-shaped center diamonds, before slipping into Stuart Weitzman heels.
