Shameless star Emmy Rossum and Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail wed on Saturday in New York City. Rossum wore an embroidered, off-the-shoulder Carolina Herrera dress with a breathtakingly long train. “As soon as I got engaged, I immediately knew that I wanted Mrs. Herrera to make my wedding dress,” the 30-year-old actress told Vogue.
“I went in, and Mrs. Herrera and I talked about silhouettes she’d done for bridal and silhouettes I’d worn before. I knew I’d be getting married at the temple [the Central Synagogue], which is quite grand, and that the reception would be at the Guggenheim, so we knew that it needed to be a dress that could hold up to that,” the actress told Vogue. And they even found a way to pay homage to the reception venue with the dress. “It was Mrs. Herrera’s idea to make it quite modern and fresh, and kind of use the shape of the Guggenheim on the bodice,” Rossum said.
Rossum finished off her nuptial look with understated, classic makeup. “You never want to look back and think, Gosh, why did I dye my hair blonde right before, or do something drastic, or do that statement lip? You really want to just look like yourself — nothing too much,” she said. She wore her locks in a low bun, with a Fred Leighton hairpiece fashioned to her veil. She completed the ensemble with a Roger Vivier bag and Paul Andrew pumps.
Rossum and Esmail met working together on the movie Comet. They got engaged August 2014.
