Versace again but minus the safety pins

London, July 20 (PTI): British actress and supermodel Liz Hurley will dress up in a Versace-designed red sari for her wedding with Indian millionaire Arun Nayar in Mumbai in February.

Liz will have two weddings. She will exchange vows with Nayar in Mumbai before heading home to do it all over again.

The 36-year-old star wants her friend Donatella Versace to create a sari in red, the traditional wedding colour in India, as well as a white dress for her February nuptials, The Mail on Sunday reported today.

A friend close to the actress said: “Arun made it clear that Liz would have to marry him in Mumbai to keep his family happy before any marriage in England. Liz loved India when she went out there. She said her Indian wedding dress is going to be something very unusual.”

The former Estee Lauder model shot to fame in 1994 when she attended a movie premiere in a black Versace creation pulled together by safety pins.

The outfit was quickly dubbed “that dress” and cemented Liz’s status as a style icon. But she has asked for more conservative designs for her wedding.

Arun’s Italian wife Valentina Pedroni is said to have agreed to a divorce settlement.
