Amy Oselkin, Celebrity Style Expert 2010 proved to be the perfect year for Hollywood brides to get hitched. From classic ball gowns to Grecian-inspired dresses, Hilary Duff, Katy Perry, Carrie Underwood, Alicia Keys and Chelsea Clinton represented all the hottest wedding dress trends of the moment.
Hilary Duff: Get it Right with Ruching
The Hollywood starlet said she “felt like a princess” in her blush tulle and organza mermaid Vera Wang gown at her wedding to hockey player Mike Comrie on August 15th. A body-conscious silhouette with ruching, like this David’s Bridal stunner, is perfect for brides, like Hilary, who want to highlight their figures and avoid getting swallowed up by something too poofy.
Katy Perry: Go Gray
As expected, Katy Perry didn’t follow the traditional route when it came to her wedding dress. She donned a dove gray Elie Saab Couture gown when she wed Russell Brand on October 23rd. Let’s face it, white doesn’t always work with everyone’s skin tone, so a pale pink or a light gray gown might be just right for your complexion.
Alicia Keys: Grecian Goddess
Vera Wang was the designer of choice for Alicia Keys, who wore a Grecian-inspired one-shoulder look to marry Swizz Beatz on July 31st. The draping accented her growing baby bump, while the silk georgette fabric meshed with the beach atmosphere of their Corsica island wedding. Follow Alicia’s lead and find a dress that suits your body type, as well as your wedding location.
Carrie Underwood: Two is Better Than One
One wedding dress wasn’t enough for Carrie Underwood,
who tied the knot with hockey player Mike Fisher on July 10th. For the ceremony, she chose a Chantilly lace and organza Monique Lhuillier gown, which she described as “girlie.” Then for the reception Carrie switched to a cocktail dress by the designer because she wanted to get her “boogie on.” If your budget allows for two wedding dresses, but all means, go for it!
Chelsea Clinton: Alluring A-Line
Every bride should look and feel her most beautiful on her wedding day and Chelsea Clinton definitely did. For her July 31st wedding to Marc Mezvinsky, she chose a Vera Wang strapless gown with a silver beaded belt and laser-cut organza and tulle skirt. The shimmer around her waist highlighted her petite frame, while the full skirt created a princess feel. When it comes to finding a universally flattering silhouette, keep in mind that an A-line dress, like this Oleg Cassini gown, will always do the trick.
