The secret's out: Homeland star Rupert Friend and Paralympic sprinter Aimee Mullins eloped on May 1. The couple are just beginning to share photos of their sweet ceremony — which took place in a compost shed thanks to some rain — and we can't stop admiring Aimee's bridal look. Though she didn't wear a gown, instead opting for a silk Theyskens dress with cap sleeves and floral appliqué at the neckline, Aimee made quite the statement.
In fact, she played up the shorter hemline of her number with a pair of white leather booties. The finishing touch? A dainty birdcage veil that covered her eyes when she and Rupert exchanged vows, along with a pair of delicate drop earrings. Read on for all the proof you need that when it comes to a wedding dress, an understated style is classy and completely romantic too.
