'Oceans Twelve' actor Vincent Cassel and French model Tina Kunakey tie the knot
Tina Kunakey and Vincent Cassel tied the knot in front of friends and family in France and the bride looked ethereal in Vera Wang
21-year-old French model Tina Kunakey and actor Vincent Cassel have tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony this Friday in Bidart, France. They were all smiles and the bride looked ethereal in Vera Wang. The full-length ivory tulle gown hugged her ample bosom and showed off her petite shoulders and delicate collarbones. The bride decided to go with simple diamond drop earrings and dewy makeup and left her curls intact.
The gown, as Vogue revealed, featured a hand draped tulle bodice and a flowy ballgown skirt. Designer Vera Wang said, "When a French film icon weds a ravishing extraordinary beauty, voila! This gown is all about youth, charm, and couture draping with a voluminous ball skirt." Mission accomplished!
Vincent Cassel wasn't far behind either. He channeled the coolness of the French summers and decided to go with a linen suit. A beige linen suit worn over a pleasant lavender shirt, coupled with a pair of white dress shoes gave him a look of effortless chic. His shoes were from Repetto Paris.
This is Cassel's second marriage and Kunakey's first.
The 'Ocean's Twelve' and 'Ocean's Thirteen' star who is 51 years old was previously married to actress Monica Belluci. Cassel had met the Italian actress on the set of their 1996 film 'The Apartment'. They married in 1999 and have two daughters Deva and Léonie. The two called it quits in August 2013.
The bride and groom met in Biarritz for the first time. They were recently featured on the cover of Vanity Fair Italia and in the interview Kunakey said that Cassel wanted to have lunch with her dad soon after they first met.
"I found a kind gesture. My brother was there too. They talked a lot of cinema. When he asked me to marry him, a few months ago, he took me by surprise. We had never talked about it before. I did not answer immediately because I did not expect it".
Kunakey described him as "a gentleman" who paid "full attention" to her and was "a very intelligent person with a great talent, sexy, interesting, fun". As for having kids in the future, she said, "I have not thought about it yet, even if I would like it sooner or later". Cassel also gifted her a Sphynx cat whom Tina named Monsieur. She had wished for one "since I was 15", she said. "Last year, I was in Cuba for work and he sent me the picture of this kitten with the words 'Look who he's waiting for'. I started crying for happiness." Kunakey has walked the runway for fashion powerhouse Gaultier and has been the face of L’Oreal campaigns.
