‘My best friend was an actress’: Alyssa Milano reveals the inspiration behind her wedding
Alyssas Milano, one of the most iconic faces of the wedding industry, says she was inspired by her best friend, actress Anna Faris, to create her wedding dress.
Milano spoke to Elle about her relationship with her best-known friend, the role of an actress and the emotional rollercoaster of being a married woman in Hollywood.
Alyssaa Milano: How did you get started in the industry?
Alysssa Milano’s career started off with a job at a wedding photographer.
It was a part of my early twenties and I was just going to be an extra.
But then I was cast in The Wedding Singer and then The Wedding Portrait and it was such an exciting time in my life.
The first few times, I felt like I was falling apart.
It didn’t really happen for the first couple of years, but I really felt like, I have to do this, so I thought, ‘OK, I’ve got to try it.’
And it was really exciting.
A couple of months later, I was on a plane going from Sydney to London and I got a call from Anna and she said, ‘Oh, you’ve got a wedding in London to shoot?’
And I said, yeah, I’m shooting this wedding for her.
We started working on a couple of pieces.
One was this lovely dress that Anna made for me.
It’s a very feminine dress and it had this amazing detail on the bodice, it was so romantic.
It had a little gold ribbon on it.
It made me feel so special and so happy and so fulfilled, but it also was really fun and very romantic.
Anna Fariss: How do you look in the dress?
Alesa Milan: I’m wearing a lot of makeup, which is what you do when you’re shooting weddings, so you wear a lot more makeup than I would.
And then I had to work out my hair, too.
I had a very strong preference to have short hair, and I really wanted to wear it straight and I wanted to make sure it was very short and I knew that Anna was very tall, so we made sure that my hair was really short.
And the thing is, Anna is very tall and I don’t have any kind of height.
And so it was the perfect match.
So, it’s a really beautiful wedding dress and I’m so happy that it has turned out well.

Her father was a teacher and her mother was a mother-of-three.
Anna grew up in Melbourne, NSW, but spent a lot and was at school at the Royal Australian and Women’s Hospital.
She was an excellent student and got her A-levels, and was in the Royal Melbourne College of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences before going to university.
Anna was working as a professional photographer and she started to take more interest in weddings when she met Anna Farisse.
She also began to be involved in the modelling industry, modelling for companies like Alesis, Kate Moss, Chanel, Marc Jacobs and other major brands.
Anna’s best friend Anna Farisa was also a model and was also in the wedding photography business.
Alesia Milano was born on February 28, 1989 in Sydney, Australia.
She is of English, French, Italian, German and Russian heritage.
She lives in Brisbane, Australia, with her husband Alex and their daughter Alyssana.
She has two daughters.
Alya Milana: Anna was born to my grandmother, a very traditional Irish Catholic woman.
She came from a family that really valued tradition and I think she was very proud of the fact that she had two daughters who were going to go to university, and she wanted them to be part of that.
Anna went to school at Royal Melbourne and she went to university in Melbourne.
And my grandfather was the head of the family, so my father is very proud to say that he was a member of the royal family.
So Anna was a very young girl, she was only two years old, so it’s not really been a big part of her life.
A lot of my friends in the studio and I were always like, ‘Where is Anna?
Where is Anna?’
Anna Milana was born a Catholic and was taught in the Catholic church.
She married Alex Faris in 1998, and they have three children.
