Iconic Weddings: Walk the Aisle with the Look and Confidence of These Stunning Brides
Your highly awaited wedding day is one of the most special events in your life, one occasion you want to be memorable and elegant. With the myriad of iconic weddings that have taken place on and off film sets, coming up the theme can be daunting. Why not make it easier with a glimpse on how famous personalities had their moments walking down the aisle?
Here are some memorable and talked about weddings:
SATC Carrie-Big Wedding
If there is one character in the famous television series SATC that most women wanted to emulate, it is Carrie Bradshaw, portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker. She was the one who put Manolo Blahnik shoes off the rack and on the map. This is why the Carrie and Big Wedding was a big event in the series. At first, Carrie was supposed to wear a vintage suit but when she was asked by Vogue for a photo shoot wearing different gowns, she fell for a Vivienne Westwood dress, the champagne silk satin bustier floor-sweeping wedding gown. Unfortunately, Mr. Big left Carrie at the altar. When the cocktail version of the dress came out, women did not hesitate to pay $9,875.
Kate and William
Who would forget the Royal Wedding that took place in 2011 between Prince William and Catherine Middleton? Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen designed the bridal dress, with satin material with overlaid lace bodice with machine-made lace. A Cartier scroll tiara made in 1936 secured the veil in place. Kate’s hair stylist created a tiny plait in the middle of the backcombed hair to keep the tiara from falling. That day, she was a blushing bride. And even if she was the one who did her own makeup, she never did so without training from an expert makeup artist.
Kate Moss and Jamie Hince
When the model tied the knot with The Kills frontman Jamie Hince, she wore a bespoke wedding gown studded with rhinestone by John Galliano. She had a vintage-looking veil to cover her loose wavy hair. The groom, on the other hand, opted for an Yves Saint Laurent double-vested suit. Kate was a Boho bride, with smoky lash lines and the slept-in look. Charlotte Tilbury did her makeup and that of Poppy Delevingne and Amal Clooney.
Christine Bleakly and Frank Lampard
When telly star Christine Bleakly walked the aisle to marry footballer Frank Lampard barely a month ago, she wore a show-stopping embroidered wedding dress with lace sleeves. The couple got married at St. Paul’s Church in London four years after their engagement. Her chic do and bronzed makeup complemented her white gown while she stunned onlookers with a slightly stronger eye makeup that looked great on her swarthy skin.
