6 Stone Fox Celebrity Brides
The tulle, the wild ringlets, the glittery crystals, the classic chignon, the smoky eyes, the rosy flower girls and heaps of languid wildflowers galore…. swoon! From dip-dyed gowns to barely there bikinis, celebrity wedding fashion rarely disappoints. Check out six of some of our Stone Fox faves.
After dating for six years, Gavin Rossdale popped the question on New Year’s Eve. The service was held at St. Paul's Covent Garden in London. The gown was hand-painted pink silk-faille by John Galliano for Dior and lipstick was matching magenta! The veil was long, lace and totally traditional. In typical celebrity fashion, Gwen arrived an hour late to the ceremony.
Carolyn Bessette Kennedy
The ceremony took place by candlelight on a remote Georgia island in a tiny wooden chapel. The altar was a simple wooden stand and the cross was made of two sticks held together by strings. Pre-wedding, Bessette worked closely with then-unknown designer Narciso Rodriguez on creating her perf bias-cut silk gown (which subsequently dress launched his career.) Each fitting lasted three hours; the dress was valued at 40k. Her low chignon was adorned with Jackie O's clip and she held her bouquet of lilies with long silk gloves. Her shoes were Manolos, natch.
Pam married Kid in a tiny white bikini on a beach in St. Tropez. ‘Nuff said.
Mia Farrow married Frank Sinatra in June 1966 at at the Sands Hotel Vegas. The press called them "the hipster and the hippie." The ceremony lasted four minutes and no family members were present. Doesn’t she look the ultimate sixties pixie girl with mod hair and a cute skirt suit? He kind of reminds me of a creepy grandpa. Random fact: She was 21 and he was 50. EW. Afterwards, Frank introduced Mia in the audience from the stage at the Sands and said: "Yeah, I sure got married. I finally found a broad I can cheat on." Two years later, he ordered her off the set of "Rosemary's Baby" and divorce papers were served. EW.
"I wanted it to be kind of dreamy and Twenties, when everything is soft-focus," said Kate Moss of her Jazz Age Zelda Fitzgerald-inspired dress, designed by John Galliano, who'd recently left rehab. The result was a gorge, embellished bias frock with shimmering "phoenix feathers" that took 701 hours to sew on. The Juliet Cap veil, meanwhile, was made using 270,000 gold sequins, 120,000 foil paillons and 2,800 pearl beads and took 253 hours to complete. After saying their vows in a London church, Moss remarked, in typical cool-Kate mode: 'I thought we might all burst into flames, all the crap we’ve done.'
Solange Knowles exchanged her vows in Holy Trinity Church in New Orleans after showing up on a white bicycle with white roses in the basket. First look was a Stephane Rolland jumpsuit with an attached cape; second was a Humberto Leon for Kenzo floor length gown and cape for her ceremony. In a strange twist of fate, she broke out in hives during dinner from eating too much seafood, and had to be rushed back to her hotel suite, where sis Beyonce nursed her with Benadryl and Cortisone cream.
