Best & Worst Dressed At The 2016 Oscars

For film’s biggest night, Hollywood’s brightest and boldest actresses brought out their best designer duds for a walk on the red carpet. Here are the best and worst looks from Oscar Sunday.

Naomi Watts is stunning in this Armani Privé blue and purple scale patterned strapless dress. The Aussie actress ups her game in a drop-dead gorgeous Bulgari diamond necklace and matching clutch.

Saoirse Ronan may not have won the Oscar, but she sure was a winner on the red carpet. The Brooklyn actress wows in a custom-made Calvin Klein emerald sequin dress and matching Chopard emeralds and diamonds.

Lady Gaga impresses as only SHE can! The singer sticks to her unique roots in this Brandon Maxwell white jumpsuit complete with a sweetheart neckline and full train. Gaga adds over 8 million dollars of Lorraine Schwartz diamonds to complete her flawless look!

Olivia Wilde is another stunner in white; the actress takes the plunge in this plunging Valentino Haute Couture number. Wilde kept her makeup and hair simple and accessorized her look with a statement necklace.

Julianne Moore ditched her go-to Givenchy for this custom Chanel Haute Couture black dress with embroidered straps. Last year’s Oscar winner was mesmerizing thanks to an addition of Chopard diamond earrings and cuff.

It’s so good to see Tina Fey finally end up on a best dressed list! The funny actress stuns in a royal purple Atelier Versace strapless gown and matching statement Bulgari diamonds.

Another red carpet, another sizzling appearance by the one and only Margot Robbie. The beautiful actress is reminiscent of an Oscar statue in her snake skin gold Tom Ford gown with plunging neckline and matching Forever Mark diamonds.

Rachel McAdams hits the mark in her impeccable August Getty Atelier gown! From the train to the open back, and not forgetting her flawless Piaget drop earrings, the Canadian beauty was surely one of the night’s best dressed stars.

Olivia Munn is classy and elegant in her tangerine one-shoulder Stella McCartney gown. She accentuates her look with a matching lip and Forever Mark jewels.

Jennifer Lawrence decided to take a walk on the wild side and step out of her comfort zone in this nude and black lace Dior gown. The actress completed her look with a fresh face and a blunt straight bob.

JLaw

 

I’m undecided about Cate Blanchett‘s gown choice for last night’s awards. The actress’ seafoam green Armani Privé gown has too much going on thanks to the multidimensional appliques all over. At least her breath-taking Tiffany & Co. diamonds saved her!

cate-blanchett

Kate Winslet looks like she went for a dip in the ocean right before the Oscars and then put on the first gown she saw hanging in her closet. Everything about this look is a disaster; from the careless hairdo to the liquid silk lamé custom Ralph Lauren gown, Britain’s English rose could have done so much better than this!

Another red carpet, another disaster for Heidi Klum. The supermodel fails to impress in this over-the-top cleavage baring one shoulder lilac Marchesa number with one too many floral embellishments.

Heidi Klum

 

She may have taken home the Oscar for best actress, but even that can’t save Brie Larson from this Gucci disaster. The actress is a mess in this custom-made royal blue spaghetti strap gown which featured too many out of place skirt details and an oversized silver belt.

Best & Worst Dressed at the 2015 SAG Awards!

It was a night of glitz and glamour as actors honored their fellow actors in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Here are the most memorable gowns from the evening along with those we all really want to forget!

Although this look is nowhere close to her breath-taking sighting 2 weeks ago, Julianne Moore dazzles once again in Givenchy. Although I’m not a fan of the tank top design and the somewhat messy hair, the emerald color is simply stunning and the intricate beading is flawless, and those purple Chopard earrings are not so bad either!

Reese Witherspoon continues her winning red carpet streak and shows up in a custom-made Giorgio Armani white one-sleeved gown. The blond beauty adds major bling thanks to 3.5 million dollars worth of Harry Winston diamonds.

Modern Family’s Julie Bowen makes her return to the red carpet thanks to a flawless design by George Hobeika. The flirty floral patterned design hugs the actress’ frame and compliments it perfectly.

Red carpet darling Naomi Watts wows in an off-the-shoulder navy Balenciaga gown. Once again, the actress flaunts her perfect diamonds from the BVLGARI along with a matching clutch from the Italian brand.

The stunning Khaleesi- also known by her real name, Emilia Clarke walks the carpet with so much sophistication and poise. The uber sexy Brit stuns in a black and navy Donna Karan gown and perfect Cartier jewels.

 

emilia clarke

 

Jennifer Aniston gives Sofia Vergara a run for her money and takes a deep plunge in a vintage Galliano paisley print gown. The “Cake” actress adds her favorite gold body chain and goes for a blow-dry that just works.

 

jen aniston

 

 

 

In turn, newly engaged Sofia Vergara drops jaws in a killer Donna Karan Atelier red corset and flowing train combo. The Modern Family actress kept her hair simple and accessorized with her stunning engagement sparkler.

 

sofia vergara

 

Emma Stone is an absolute winner on the red carpet! She takes a major risk and shows up in a Dior Haute Couture tuxedo jacket dress that is absolutely flawless! The actress keeps her hair and make-up simple and slips into a pair of sexy strappy Louboutins to complete her Best Dressed look.

 

emma stone

 

 

Felicity Jones chose a beautiful Balenciaga design for the SAGs. It’s too bad that she selected a powder pink version of the gown, because the color completely washes her out.

 

felicity jones

 

Claire Danes may not be the train-wreck she was at the Golden Globes, but that doesn’t make her look any better. This Marc Jacobs halter design could have interesting if it weren’t for that busy contrasting belt and stone accents on the sides- yes stone accents!

 

claire danes

 

 

If you’re feeling an intolerable urge to rip-off Julia Roberts‘ weird looking satin-like pelvis? “pockets”, rest assured, you’re not alone. Roberts’ Givenchy jumpsuit’s tailoring is completely off and those black peep-toes look one size too big/worn out!

 

 

julia roberts

 

 

Keira Knightley: still pregnant, still on the worst dressed list. Although the shade of purple of this Erdem gown is amazing against her skin-tone, Knightley once again chooses to hide her baby bump under layers and layers of unnecessary fabric! Impatiently waiting for this once fashion icon and Chanel darling to wow us again!

 

 

keira knightly

 

 

And last but not least, Modern Family’s Ariel Winter brings the teenage cleavage to the SAGs red carpet courtesy of a winter white Zac Posen gown. Mind you, the actress is only 16 years old and although I read somewhere that she has trouble dressing for her body type, this look is too much dress and a whole lot of face paint for someone who is obviously going out on a school night!

Amal

See Amal Alamuddin’s Dress from Last Night’s Golden Globe Awards!

The world went wild when George Clooney got out of his limo at last night’s Golden Globe awards. The A list actor brought along his stunning Lebanese bride, lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

As soon as hot twosome stepped onto the red carpet, media outlets were competing to get the first word from the newly married couple.

 

Amal
Expectations were high since Amal- known for her understated and classy style- wowed fans with several couture gowns throughout her Venice wedding to Clooney a few months back. So, what she did end up wearing to the red carpet event? Amal wore a classic and strapless black custom-made Dior couture gown featuring a statement one shoulder cape. Mrs. Clooney complimented her look with gloves that she sowed herself (seriously!) and a white clutch purse. Personally, I wasn’t a fan of the satin gloves; I’m pretty sure the lawyer would have stunned more if she had dropped them, but it was nice to see her adding a personal touch that looked as if it were inspired by a night at the opera. Her hair- although long and flowing- could have also been wore up in a classic chignon to let the dress do all the talking and showcase her stunning 29 carat Harry Winston earrings. However, it must be said that Mrs. George Clooney looked glamorous, timeless, and blended into the A list crowd for her first post-wedding red carpet!

 

 

amal alamuddin

 

As for George himself, well the actor wore – wait for it- his Armani wedding tux to the Globes: the tux was personally designed by Giorgio Armani and combines a blend of ultra wool and cashmere.

Beauty Essentials your Skin Needs to Survive the Chilly Weather this Week

With temperatures rumored to hit freezing levels this week, you’re all probably reaching for your thermal sweaters, wool trench coats, and furry boots.
However, as the days get shorter and your anticipation to go home, hug your bed, and wish you could hibernate until the storm is over, there’s one element that you should not neglect: your skin.

 

photo (3)

 

The harsh cold is what often contributes to dry skin which in turns rids your skin of its natural glow. To fight this, here are a few beauty essentials that your skin will need to survive:

Your face:
If you normally moisturize your skin once a day, it might be a good idea to double up on your routine and apply your face cream twice (morning and night). A great moisturizer is Clarins’ Daily Energizer Cream which perfectly hydrates, reflects freshness, and provides your skin with a healthy winter glow.

 

clarins face
Your lips:
Your lips have probably been chapped for at least a month now, but harsh temperatures will increase the dryness and may even cause bleeding. Maintain your signature pout by using lip balm every 2-3 hours and patting your lips with a damp cloth throughout the day.

 

 

labello
 

Your hands:
Washing your hands (specifically with very hot water or very cold water) will cause them to dry in the days ahead. Invest in a good hand cream to combat the dryness: Bath and Body Works’ Warm Vanilla Sugar cream will give your skin a creamy feel, Clarins’ Hand and Nail Treatment Cream will soften your hands and strengthen your nails (tried and tested!), while the medicated Glycerodermine is perfect for overnight application. It would also be a good idea to moisturize after every hand wash.

 

hands

Your feet:
You may think that your feet are tucked away in warm socks and furry boots, but all these long hours will take a toll on them. Take off your socks before bedtime and let your toes breathe. You can also apply a designated foot cream-what better treatment for your feet than Scholl’s Foot Therapy- to combat dryness.

 

foot
Your eyes:
Work or university commitments will always require you to look presentable. In this case, water-proof mascara is your best friend. The cold weather coupled with high winds will cause your eyes to tear up; invest in a great waterproof product that won’t have you reaching for the nearest Kleenex. Dior has some of the best beauty products in the market and their waterproof mascara is a makeup essential that you will use until the last stroke.

The 5 Worst Red Carpet Moments of 2014

2014 witnessed some sensational moments for countless Hollywood stars! Others though, weren’t as lucky when it came to walking the red carpet in their designer duds. Here now are the top fashion crimes of 2o14!

While Jennifer Lawrence wowed audience with her winning red carpet streak to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, the actress wasn’t quite as lucky in the first quarter of the year. JLaw arrived at January’s Golden Globe awards  in a white Dior duvet- like white gown. Her look was clearly reminiscent of Ariel in The Little Mermaid and the excessive accessories and the gothic makeup made the whole look more of a disaster.

 

JLAWw

 

 

Although “haters gonna hate”, there’s no reason to give them an obvious reason to Taylor Swift! The “shake it off” singer showed up to the MTV Video Music Awards looking more like a figure skater rather than a country superstar in this Mary Katrantzou mess! Everything was wrong about this look; from the weird letters on her romper to the mismatched heels, this outfit choice is surely “going down in flames”.

 

Taylot-Mary-Katrantzou

 

 

Heidi Klum was probably one of the most successful models in the early 2000s. Nowadays though, the Project Runway host uses her red carpet passes to flaunt her cleavage and thighs at every chance she can get. Take this appearance at the Golden Globes for example: Klum is once again showing off excessive cleavage in a hideous gown by Gucci and her fashion sense clearly chocked on that hideous 90s inspired black and white chocker!

What a disaster it was when Ms. Amber Rose‘s invite to the MTV Video Music Awards got lost in the mail and didn’t make it to her house on time! Lacking any style or class, the model thought it would be appropriate to show up in a micro thong an a string beaded bra that barely covered any bits of her body up.

 

 

amber-rose

 

 

You might think that Amber Rose should be the ultimate winner of worst dressed celebrity, but rest assured that there is one more outfit that is worse than a bra-thong combo; this disaster is by non other than Lena Dunham who showed up to the Emmy’s in a powder pink button down shirt and a full tulle Valli multicolored skirt. Ring the alarm because there really are no words for this crime!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the 2014 SAG Awards

The second stop for awards season happened to be the Screen Actors’ Guild awards. The lavish yet relaxed awards show took place on Saturday in Los Angeles and just like every red carpet, there was mix of gorgeous and hideous, but more on the hideous later ;)

Here are my favorite gowns from the evening!

Jennifer Lawrence

Ok so this look is not my favorite for J Law, but it is a huge improvement from last week’s Dior disaster. Also, because of all the sequins, this dress does not photograph well, but you would like it if you saw it live on TV. In any case, this Dior black strapless gown wins Jennifer some much needed points in the awards season fashion department. She finishes off the look with Jennifer Mayer dangling earrings. Now if only her hair would grow back!

 

Jen Lawrence

 

Anna Gunn

I love everything about this look! The midnight blue Monique Lhuillier gown goes perfectly with Anna’s blond hair and the shimmer is just right. The Breaking Bad actress also pays homage to the show with a custom made “Breaking Bad” clutch that made fans of the series go wild!

 

Anna Gunn

 

 

Lupita Nyong’o

The Kenyan beauty nails it again and looks gorgeous on the red carpet. Following her “fashion moment” at the Globes last week, the 12 Years a Slave actress turns heads in this Gucci turquoise dress. The color is just perfect for her complexion and I’m just obsessed with the neckline!

 

Lupita

 

 

Emilia Clarke

Just when you think Calvin Klein lost his A game in designing red carpet gowns (I’m looking at you Reese Witherspoon), the designer dresses Emilia Clarke in a custom sequin one shoulder gown that is drop dead gorgeous! From the color to the hair to the flawless and understated makeup, I I love everything about Emilia’s look!

 

Emilia Clarke

 

 

Sofia Vergara

No surprise here! The bombshell does it again in a strapless Donna Karan gown and a breath-taking Amrapali diamond and emerald statement necklace. Enough said.

 

Sofia Vergara

 

Amy Adams

Undoubtedly my favorite from this year’s SAGs, Amy Adams is stunning in this Antonio Berardi dress featuring one shoulder cutout detailing. I love the bejeweled waistline and the rest of her Cartier arm candy. Simply beautiful!

Fashion Fails | Worst Dressed at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards

After the good comes the ugly. Drum rolls please for the worst dressed starlets at the 2014 Golden Globe Awards in no particular order (because every single one of these looks was a fashion crime in its own way)

Reese Witherspoon
I like Reese Witherspoon. She’s pretty funny and down to earth. Her fashion sense? Not so much. This teal Calvin Klein dress is a one piece swimsuit disaster waiting to happen. The color, the fit, just everything about this is wrong and makes the actress look bulky on top. The weird hairstyle doesn’t help either.

 

Reese Witherspoon

Drew Barrymore 

While it is a fact that Drew is carrying life inside of her, it looks like life is actually growing on her. Everything is wrong about this Monique Lhuiller dress; from the hemline to the excessive use of these ridiculous petals, this whole look is just a huge catastrophe. I know it’s mean to make fun of a pregnant woman but if Olivia Wilde can look this stunning while pregnant, so can Drew.

 

Drew Barrymoore

Heidi Klum
There was a time when I really loved Heidi Klum. Then she hit 40 and decided that she needed to put her cleavage on full display anytime she went out and there was a chance someone could get a picture of her. The Golden Globes is just an example of this. Ugly dress. Hideous necklace. The ex supermodel can do so much better than this Gucci getup.

 

1731663_ET_Golden_Globes_WJS_17

Sandra Bullock 
Is it mean to think that Sandra looked better in a space suit than she did in this dress? In all honesty this whole Prabal Gurung look isn’t working. Bubble gum pink just doesn’t fit well with a fancy awards show and neither does an unironed dress!

 

Sandra Bullock

Zoe Saldana 


It’s such a shame that such a stunning actress like Zoe just committed red carpet suicide. This Prabal Gurung dress is all kinds of wrong and does nothing to flatter the actress in any way!

 

Zoe Saldana

Jennifer Lawrence 

I hate to bash JLaw because she really is one of the most amazing women in Hollywood, but this white Dior duvet meets The Little Mermaid is a total miss for America’s Sweetheart. The excessive accessories and the gothic makeup make the whole look more of a disaster. However, JLaw photo bombing Taylor Swift was everything on the red carpet! Hoping she’ll bring better fashion this weekend at the SAGs.

 

JLAWw
Tina Fey
It’s times like these when I feel like Tina likes to be a worst dressed list. The actress and co-host of the Golden Globes chose this floral Carolina Herrera gown that’s all kinds of wrong. The pattern is just too much and it looks like her body is drowning somewhere in that skirt! Good thing Tina had a few outfit changes during the telecast and got the chance to redeem herself!

 

Tina Fey

So that’s it from the Golden Globe awards! I’d love to hear who was your very best and worst. Hit me with your comments and don’t forget to tune in next week for the SAG awards!

Spotted | Nicole Kidman Lights Up Cannes!

Looks like Nicole Kidman is finally getting her face back! Yep, seems this Aussie actress is shying away from her previously much loved botox that made her look like a Stepford wife, and I’m loving the results already. Only 48 hours into the Cannes Film Festival and Kidman is undoubtedly the belle of the ball in not one, but four stunning outfits!

For her glamorous arrival in the southern French city, Nicole chose a navy sparkle dress and wrap ankle strap pointed pumps- both by Dior. Kidman dazzled the crowds with her simple straight hair and million dollar smile-yes she can smile again :D

Later in the day, Nicole- who is serving as a judge at this year’s festival- appeared at a photo-op with her fellow judges in a beautiful LBD by Alexander McQueen. The dress featured a seductive low cut neckline and romantic bell sleeves. The actress completed her look with mauve Jimmy Choos- a brand she is sure to be wearing more often since she was just named its new face!

For the screening of The Great Gatsby, Kidman slipped into a floral gown by Dior. She matched her strapless dress with patent pink pumps and had her hair pulled up in a glamorous updo.

Finally, for an event honoring Calvin Klein last night, Nicole wore an S&M inspired leather dress by the label and added Fred Leighton earrings and grey captoe pumps by Jimmy Choo.

Favs | The Great Gatsby: Hunky Actors, Tiffany Sparklers, & A LOT of Prada

After having its release date pushed back several times, The Great Gatsby has finally landed in theaters all over the world. Based on Scott Fitzgerald’s book, the movie tells the story of Nick Carraway (Tobey Maguire) – a mid westerner who moves to New York and is introduced to the lavish world of his neighbor Jay Gatsby, played by (the still very dreamy) Leonardo DiCaprio. Set in 1922, Gatsby is a mysterious party-throwing millionaire who falls for Carraway’s married cousin, Daisy Buchanan, played by Carey Mulligan.

The movie had its world premiere in New York last week, but its long awaited moment came last night when it premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.

Why should fashion lovers care about this movie? Two reasons! One is fancy jewelry, and two is the luxurious designer wardrobe.

Legendary New York based jewelers Tiffany & Co designed flawless pieces for the movie made from platinum, pearls , and diamonds. Tiffany was chosen because its diamonds portrayed the epitome of American glamour during the jazz age and positively defined it in the 20s. The most notable item is the Savoy headpiece (worn by Carey Mulligan throughout the movie) made from freshwater cultured pearls and round brilliant diamonds, weighing in at a whopping 25 carats! Want to own it? Well you can if you’ve got $200,000 to spare by simply clicking  here.

 

Carey Mulligan's Savoy Headpiece made with freshwater pearls and round brilliant diamonds is worth $200,000!

As for the wardrobe, director Baz Lurhman approached Miuccia Prada to design over 40 outfits with the help of the movie’s costume designer Catherine Martin. The pair selected a few classic Prada designs and modified them to fit the 20s. The result was stunning gowns that were featured in most of the Great Gatsby party scenes!

I am beyond excited to watch this movie; aside from the jewels and the glamour, Leonardo DiCaprio’s movies are rarely a disappointment to his fans. The Great Gatsby is now showing at Lebanon’s Grand Cinemas theaters.

Let’s Talk Memorable Celebrity Wedding Gowns on LBC SAT’s “B Beirut”!

It was my pleasure to be a guest on “B Beirut” yesterday night, a lifestyle show that is broadcast live on LBC SAT daily at 7:30PM.

The topic I covered with the show’s very fashionable host Bilal Al Arabi was memorable celebrity wedding dresses. As you all know, wedding season is just around the corner and you beautiful ladies may want to get some inspiration from the gowns your favorite stars wore for their walk down the aisle. Check out the gowns that were showcased on “B Beirut” below!

Kicking it off with Anne Hathaway who wore a stunning custom made Valentino couture gown for her nuptials to Adam Shulman in Big Sur, CA late last year. The Les Miserables star’s gown was inspired by the 20s and even featured a head band that covered her short tresses (thank God!). Additionally, the gown was hand painted on the bottom in pink which added a girly touch to the otherwise very feminine look.

 

Anne Hathaway in Valentino

 

 

The Black Eyed Peas’ frontwoman Fergie wore custom made Dolce & Gabbana for her wedding to Josh Duhamel. The dress featured a fitted corset, tulle train, and a collection of tulle flowers that were knitted on the back with Swarovsky crystals placed in the center. Take a look at that amazing diamond necklace in her hair!

 

Fergie in Dolce and Gabbana

 

 

Gwen Stefani knows a thing or two about being rocker chic! For her wedding to Gavin Rossdale more than 10 years ago, Stefani wore a Couture Dior gown that was white, but featured a hot pink hue towards the hem. Gwen knew how to inject some punk rock into her gown while keeping it classy and is widely credited today as the celebrity who inspired pink wedding gowns!

 

Gwen Stefani in Christian Dior

 

 

Hillary Duff, known to many as Lizzy McGuirre wore a custom made Vera Wang mermaid gown for her wedding to Hockey player Mike Comrie. The petite star looked stunning in this strapless dress that featured loads of ruffles below the knee. Tip! Mermaid gowns look good on almost every body shape; this style adds some height if you need an extra few inches and covers problem areas where you might appear to be fuller.

 

Hillary Duff in Vera Wang

 

One of my favorite celebrity gowns belongs to Jenna Dewan who married the very sexy Channing Tatum in a charming outdoor ceremony. The stunning actress wore a Couture gown by Lebanese American designer Reem Acra that featured a full skirt, beading on the bodice, and whimsical feathers all over. Love it!

 

Jenna Dewan in Reem Acra

 

 

How else would you expect Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake to pose on the cover of People magazine on their wedding day? The beautiful actress slipped into a pink Giambattista Valli couture gown for her Italian wedding to the popular pop star. Biel kept her makeup to a minimum and had her hair in a simple updo , which kept the focus on the dress!

 

Jessica Biel in Giambattista Valli

 

 

British supermodel Kate Moss married Jamie Hince in England in a village like ceremony. The groom wore a blue grey retro suit while the blond bride wore a dress by her friend John Galliano. Moss’ gown was inspired by 20s icon Zelda Fitzgerald and was lightly sequined with sheer panels here and there. The model’s bridal party (including her daughter who served as her maid of honor) were all dressed by her close friend and designer Stella McCartney.

 

Kate Moss in John Galliano

 

 

When Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise got married, it was a match made in tabloid heaven for months to come! Holmes asked Giorgio Armani to create her gown for the big day (as well as Cruise’s tux) who designed this off-the-shoulder beaded dress with a tulle trimmed veil for their big wedding in an Italian castle!

 

Katie Holmes in Armani

 

When Kim Kardashian announced that she was marrying Basketball player Kris Humphries, everyone knew she was going to go all out for her wedding. But no one expected her to wear three custom made gowns- that reportedly cost $75,000- by Vera Wang! For the ceremony, the reality star wore a Cinderella like strapless gown which featured a full skirt. (Check out the diamonds on her forehead!). After, Kim K slipped into a mermaid tulle gown for the reception and later on changed into a champagne colored satin number to cut the cake. Notice how in each look, the reality star wears different jewels and changes her hair and makeup!

Everyone expected Mariah Carey to go all out for her wedding to Nick Cannon a few years ago. However, the diva surprised everyone by wearing a simple Nile Cymlo gown to her big day in the Bahamas. Her dress was reportedly the same color as the island’s sand! It doesn’t stop their though- following the ceremony, guests gathered around the ocean and watched as Mariah’s dress turned pink once she entered the water. Guess Carey did have a surprise up her sleeve!

 

Mariah Carey in Nile Cymlo

 

For her understated wedding to Brian Austin Greene in Hawaii, Megan Fox wore a simple gown made especially for her by Armani Privé. The actress looked beautiful as she walked barefoot in the sand in her sweetheart neckline gown that featured a stunning flowing veil and a 13 foot train- yes 13!

Melania Knauss shocked the world when she appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine one month prior to her wedding in her actual wedding dress! Yes, the former model posed in her John Galliano strapless gown that had a 13-foot train and was made from 300 feet of white duchesse satin, and 1,500 pearls and crystal rhinestones. Guess it pays to marry a billionaire like Donald Trump!

The Legally Blond Reese Witherspoon wore a custom made Monique Lhuiller soft pink gown for her wedding to Jim Toth in her home in Ojai, CA. The classy actress’ gown featured a corset top made of Chantilly lace along with a separated tulle A-line skirt with a silk satin ribbon.

Which designer would you choose to design your wedding gown if your husband-to-be owned Gucci, YSL, and Balenciaga? Well Salma Hayek chose Balenciaga for her Venice wedding to PPR chairman Francois Henri Pinault. The stunning gown featured a silver beaded bodice that highlighted her cleavage (as always) and a full off-white skirt. Stunning!

 

Salma Hayek in Balenciaga

 

 

I LOVE Victoria Beckham, but I think that if she were to get married again, she would pick another gown than the Vera Wang she wore to her wedding to David Beckham over 10 years ago. Nevertheless, Mrs. Beckham is beautiful in this champagne colored satin strapless gown. And check out those apples in her bouquet! Maybe that’s a British thing? ;)

There you have it! A rundown of the most memorable celebrity wedding gowns! Which is your favorite?

Thank you again to the amazing production team and crew at LBC SAT’s B Beirut. Looking forward to next time!
