Chelsea Clinton dazzled the world with her exquisite Vera Wang wedding gown (one of two from the night) at her fairytale wedding in Rhinebeck, NY on Saturday night, and her mother, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, followed her lead and upped the glam ante as well. Not only did she wow at Chelsea’s Friday night rehearsal dinner in a vivid caftan, but she looked exceptional at the wedding itself in a custom fuchsia floral gown by long-time friend Oscar de la Renta. A guest at the wedding said of Hillary’s entrance into the ceremony, “when she walked down the aisle, it took your breath away. She looked stunning–like a princess. She was beaming.” Her radiant smile was not only for her beautiful dress — a friend of the Secretary reported that “she was so thrilled and over the moon about [the dress]” — but also for her role as mother of the bride. Her joy in being with her daughter and mother is evident as the three generations pose for this wedding photo. Another friend of the Clintons explains, “It was so important to Hillary to share her daughter’s day with her own mother. When the three of them are together Hillary isn’t the Secretary or the Senator or the celebrity — she is her mother’s daughter’s and her daughter’s mother.” Read all about Chelsea’s wedding in this week’s copy of PEOPLE, on newsstands tomorrow. –Melissa Liebling-Goldberg; reporting by Sandra Sobieraj Westfall
