"The couple are an absolutely glamorous couple. They are very fashionable, they're beautiful, they make you dream and for this reason we are all here, even of we do not know if it's true about the wedding."

Rumours continued to circulate on the shores of Lake Como on Saturday about the much-speculated wedding of Hollywood glamour couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie - however the main thing missing was the alleged bride and groom themselves.
Still, officials held out hope that the couple would give a Hollywood ending to the weekend and show up to tie the knot in this Lake Como retreat.
Cernobbio Mayor Simona Saladini said she had been told Saturday to remain on standby for possible official functions into the evening.
She said that police in the Lake Como area had been placed on alert and that a private security firm had increased security around George Clooney's nearby villa.
Speculation about an impending wedding at the lake was rife last year, but quickly fizzled after Clooney denied his friends were scheduled to marry at his villa.
The neoclassical villa, which had been home to the late Italian aristocrat and movie director Luchino Visconti, had been mentioned as one of the
possible sites for the wedding.
It is now owned by the municipality and the province of Como, and the mayor's spokesman happily spent Saturday morning showing journalists around the place.
However, there was no evidence of any pending nuptials at the lakefront estate; the only action under way was the installation of a new bathroom.
Another possible location for the wedding was Cernobbio's famous luxury resort, Villa D'Este, which often hosts stars and international conventions.
But all was quiet there Saturday and officials repeated previous claims they knew nothing of a possible wedding.
Hotel spokeswoman Antonella Chiesa said Pitt's and Jolie's agents had contacted the hotel a few months ago "but then we don't know what happened. It ended in nothing."
Residents seized the opportunity to have some fun, causing a mad stampede of laughing journalists as two men dressed up as the famous couple arrived on the main drag by the lake, calling each other "Brad" and "Angelina" and kissing passionately for the crowd.
The fracas also attracted people from nearby towns, including a Clooney lookalike who displayed a photo in his wallet of himself posing with the famous actor.
To make his point, he recalled how Sylvester Stallone once found it strange that the locals didn't ask him for an autograph.
"He was angry because he walked from here to there and no one stopped him," Sitta said with a grin, as he reminisced about the episode about five
years ago at his lakefront Holmes Lido restaurant.
The locals, he explained patiently, simply aren't interested in the stars.
In the nearby town of Laglio, where Clooney keeps his Villa Oleandra, Mayor Giuseppe Mantero played down rumours of any possible nuptials, saying long-term construction projects on the estate made any wedding there virtually impossible.
Publicists for Clooney sand Pitt have declined to comment on the rumours.
Jolie, who starred alongside Pitt in "Mr. and Mrs. Smith," is expecting a child this summer.
