5 Starlets to Inspire a Red Carpet Wedding


Updated on:


Take your wedding from spectacular to red carpet-worthy with a gown that leaves them stunned in their seats.  This year’s award ceremony circuit brought out a bevy of beautiful gowns as Hollywood’s top names showed up in dresses fit for a bride; some of the dresses even came from designer bridal collections.  Fashioned every which way from sleek and modern to eye-popping, there’s a style to suit even the most fickle bridezilla.

Kate Hudson at the 2010 SAG Awards


As simple as this Emilio Pucci sheath dress looks, the actual fit and peek of skin makes this glamorous and chic gown a must for the modern bride.  And don’t worry about it being too modest, there is nothing demure about this curve-hugging, back-baring, non-traditional shock of white.  In a word: magnifique.

Diane Kruger at the 2010 Oscars


Bringing the classic black and white to the party as always, the delicate detailing of this Chanel gown makes a strong statement without being overpowering.  With soft ladylike refinement, the blend of rosettes, pleats, ruffles and ribbons create a very daring fairytale effect that no princess-bridezilla could resist.

Jennifer Carpenter at the 2010 SAG Awards


Short bridal gowns are carving out their place in the wedding world, so this little number in all its fit-for-a-night-on-the-town glory is an excellent choice for the no-fuss, boundary-breaking bride.  It may not be church wedding appropriate, but this Paule Ka mini dress works just about anywhere else.  Turn typical wedding attire on its head by showing a little leg instead of the usual shoulders and back.

Salma Hayek at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival


Become an absolute bombshell knockout in a contoured blush gown.  Gucci takes the cake with this glamorous gown that cinches in all the right places.  Channel your inner vintage vixen with an hourglass dress in a shade of skin tone for that barely there seduction.  Stand tall and start smize-ing (the Tyra Banks equivalent of “smiling with your eyes”).  Own it and be the paparazzi darling at your own affair.

Maggie Gyllenhaal at the 2010 Oscars


Staying true to my non-traditional self I’m bringing in this gorgeous cobalt blue and white gown which some have likened to the famous Starry Night painting by Van Gogh.  Decked in Dries Van Noten, Maggie Gyllenhaal demands attention.  For all the “go our own way” girls, this is more than amazing, it’s perfection.  For true free spirit impact, step down the aisle in a gown that speaks to you immediately regardless of where it falls on the “wedding” scale.
