During Monday’s memorial service for Gianna and Kobe Bryant, Vanessa Bryant reveals a sweet present given to her by Kobe on Valentine’s Day. It was a notebook, and the actual blue dress Rachel McAdams wore in the movie, The Notebook.
“When I asked him why he chose the blue dress, he said it was because it was the scene when Allie comes back to Noah. We had hoped to grow old together like the movie. We really had an amazing love story,” Vanessa stated.
The Notebook costume designer, Karyn Wagner confirmed the gift and said, “I started bawling. I’m still drying the tears off my face. What a beautiful eulogy. I’m so honored that I was able to contribute in some small way to the history of this amazing man.”
Apparently, Kobe was the “romantic one” in their love story. Talk about the best present EVER!
