Lionel Messi's Mum Accused Of Trying To Upstage Barca's Star Bride At Their Wedding

Lionel Messi's mother has been accused of trying to upstage her daughter-in-law after turning up to the couple's wedding wearing an almost identical white dress.
The Barcelona football star and his childhood sweetheart Antonella Roccuzzo tied the knot on Friday at a star-studded event in their hometown, Rosario in Argentina's Santa Fe province.

But there were shocked gasps after the civil ceremony when Celia arrived with husband Jorge on the red carpet wearing a silver white lace gown which was strikingly similar to that of the bride.

It is already considered a lack of respect in Argentina for any other guest or family member at a wedding to wear white except for the bride.

The wedding preparations had been dogged with rumours of a long-standing rift between Messi's mother Celia Cuccittini and Antonella's side of the family.

Argentinian media had reported that the Messis had booked an entire floor of the City Center Rosario hotel complex, with Antonella's family occupying another floor, because the two families are not on speaking terms.

Before the wedding, the designer chosen by mother Celia and her daughter Sol for their dresses, had told Argentina's infobae website that the mother's dress would be 'dark'.

Designer, Claudio Cosano, who travelled to Rosario to help the women get ready, said they would be "very luxurious dresses, couture. I can assure you that they will be dark and with the Cosan style impregnated in them."

But when she appeared Celia was wearing a long clear-cut white gown with embroidered stones and boat neckline, and a lace hem which touched the floor, just like her new daughter-in-law's wedding dress.

For many in Argentina, the choice of dress was an attempt to compete with the woman who, according to reports, she never wanted to marry her famous son.
