See the Dress Sophie Hunter Wore to Marry Benedict Cumberbatch

Originally posted on TIME:

Actress and director Sophie Hunter wore a beautiful dress by Valentino to marry Benedict Cumberbatch on Valentine’s Day.

Before the private ceremony on the Isle of Wight, Annie Leibovitz photographed the bride being fitted in her gown for Vogue. The lacy dress was reportedly inspired by William Blake watercolors and featured a high neckline and an empire waist that flattered her baby bump.

The photo was initially posted on Maison Valentino’s Instagram page as well, but now seems to have been taken down.

This cat clearly didn’t get the memo about it being International Day Of Happiness today.

But maybe we shouldn’t blame him – he obviously has a severe case of bitchy resting face.

The frowning feline is fast becoming a hit on Instagram, where he has amassed over 15,000 followers thanks to his menacing but cute expressions.

Named after Albert Einsten, poor Pompous Albert is a rejected show-cat. No wonder he looks a bit p**ed off. The kitty is a Selkirk Rex, a rare cat breed known for its soft tufted and curly fur.

It must be hard to be evil yet adorably fluffy after all.
