Chelsea Clinton used the Clinton Foundation’s resources “for her wedding”, an aide to former US President Bill Clinton wrote in 2012, according to emails released by WikiLeaks.
They appear to show that Doug Band emailed John Podesta, chairman of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign, urging him to “speak to her and end this”.
She’s the heir to the glittering Swarovski gemstone empire so, naturally, Victoria Swarovski’s wedding was a dazzling affair.
The 23-year-old, who is also a famous singer in Austria, married her childhood sweetheart and property investment boyfriend, Werner Mürz, over the weekend in Trieste, Italy, in a show-stopping three-day bash.
The crystal heiress stunned in a 46kg custom-made gown that she designed herself with the help of Dubai-based designer, Michael Cinco, whose celebrity clients include Beyoncé, Jennifer Lopez, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. The gown reportedly cost over £700,000 and came embellished with 500,000 Swarovski crystals, paillete and laser-cut flowers.
She offset her stunning tulle and lace designer dress, which came with an eight-metre veil and train, with Jimmy Choo heels.
The couple, who met in 2010, said their vows in the Cathedral of San Giusto in front of 250 of their closest friends and family – and stretched the festivities over three days in the Italian sun.

President Trump interrupted his golf weekend to surprise a bride and groom who tied the knot at his club.
The wedding was thrown at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster Township in New Jersey.
Trump’s been a fixture at the club over the years and has marketed wedding crashing in his brochures, saying, “If he (Trump) is on-site for your big day, he will likely stop in & congratulate the happy couple. He may take some photos with you, but we ask you and your guests to be respectful of his time and privacy”
A guest at the wedding told the Washington Post Trump’s visit was a whirlwind that lasted just a few minutes.
‘It was very brief. He waved to everyone. Everyone obviously got very excited, got out of their chairs and came to take pictures,’ Sean Burke told the Post.
‘The bride came running out and he gave her a big hug and a kiss so she was just ecstatic. And then the groom found out, too… No one knew it was going to happen.’
