The new celebrity engagements, upcoming nuptials and recent splits have us gasping, so, we take a look back at wedding gowns that have made their mark. Hollywood’s wedding gowns are among the world’s prettiest and most memorable. For some serious bi day inspiration, here are the brides and the dresses that have left an indelible mark on our fashion memories and continue to inspire brides-to-be.
NO. 1: CIARA
R&B singer Ciara married her NFL player fiancé Russell Wilson August 2016 in a fairytale wedding ceremony in the beautiful Peckforton Castle in Cheshire, United Kingdom. The singer wore a custom-made Roberto Cavalli gown. Designed exclusively by Cavalli’s creative director Peter Dundas, the corset front dress is framed by its sheer lace bell sleeves. It’s a very romantic silhouette with a little bit of a boho twist – exactly the kind of thing that has become Dundas’ signature.
NO. 2: KEYSHIA KA’OIR
October this year, rapper Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka’oir, celebrated their love with an ultra-lavish, celebrity-studded wedding at The Four Seasons in Miami, broadcast live on BET. The wedding, which cost an estimated $1.7 million spared no expense. Her “bouquet” was instead of an arrangement of large square, round and teardrop cut crystals organized in a floral pattern, while her dress–a custom Youself Alijasmi Bridal piece–was hand encrusted and embroidered with hundreds of thousands of tiny crystals to match her diamond headpiece, blinding bouquet and $500,000 25-carat diamond engagement ring.
NO. 3: GABRIELLE UNION
Gabrielle looked absolutely breathtaking, the Hollywood actress wore one of two gowns for her special day, which were both custom-made, and created by designer Dennis Basso for Kleinfeld Bridal. Her strapless dress featured a sweetheart neckline and a beautifully draped bodice, which gave way to a full ballgown skirt, which accentuated her tiny waist. She stayed true to the romantic theme as she wore her hair up in soft waves, keeping the focus on her beautiful gown and her bare shoulders, as she rocked dewy makeup
NO. 4: ENIKO HART
In early 2016, Eniko Parrish married comedian Kevin Hart in a romantic Californian ceremony and dazzled their 200 guests in two stunning Vera Wang gowns. For the ceremony, she wore a dress with an intricate lace bodice and figure-hugging, multi-layered skirt. Switching things up for the reception, Eniko changed into this gorgeous long sleeved sheer number, which Vera Wang says had a “sumptuous hand placed French Chantilly lace appliqué artfully contoured along the whole gown“.
NO. 5: SOLANGE
November 2014 saw music superstar Solange Knowles tie the knot with her video director fiance Alan Ferguson in a breathtaking New Orleans wedding. Solange sported a stunning Humberto Leon for Kenzo floor-length gown with an attached cape.
