Rossano trumps all previous weddings

Orla Healy

BRIDEZILLA Alert: Ivana Trump's April 12 wedding may be her third -- but that doesn't mean the 59-year-old Czech is planning anything less than an over-the-top event to seal her union with toyboy Rossano Rubicondi, an Italian actor who is 24 years her junior.

According to staffers at Donald Trump's ritzy Mar A Largo estate, where the ecumenical ceremony is taking place, the 600-strong guest list includes the likes of Liza Minnelli, Diana Ross and Natalie Cole, as well as a contingent of 25 bridesmaids and 25 groomsmen. Daughter Ivanka will serve as maid of honour, while sons Donald Jr and Eric will give the bride away.

Recipients of the gold-embroidered linen invitation to the event have been warned not to bring cellphones or cameras with them -- probably due to the $250,000 exclusive deal with the photo agency Getty Images.

Male guests are being asked to wear head-to-toe white (yes, P-Diddy-style) while female guests have been requested not to wear the colours pink and yellow -- the dominant colours of Ivana's six dresses for the day -- and instead to stick to "solid pastel long gowns".
