Italian fashion designer Valentino on Friday gave some of the few details to emerge so far about supermodel Claudia Schiffer’s Saturday wedding to British film producer Matthew Vaughn. “Dressing Claudia for her wedding is completely different from dressing her as a model. There is so much emotion,” the couturier said in a statement reported by Reuters. He promises that the bride, no stranger to Valentino fashions on the runway, will wear a “classical, almost fairy-tale dress” when she walks down the aisle of Coldham Hall, an Elizabethan mansion in Suffolk, England, where the two, both 31, plan to live. The Associated Press reported that guests at the wedding are expected to include Madonna and her hubby, film director Guy Ritchie, whose movie “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” Vaughn produced. And, like the December 2000 nuptials of that couple at Scotland’s Skibo Castle, this weekend’s wedding plans have been kept under tight wraps by the couple-to-be.
