Million Dollar Celebrity Weddings

“Here comes the bride” doesn’t always come cheap, especially for the A-listers. Celebrities spend a fortune on extravagant weddings because, well, wouldn’t you if you had the money? The wedding that everyone is currently waiting anxiously for is that of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Their long-anticipated engagement has only been followed by predictions on how much her dress will cost, what it will look like, etc. While we wait for their wedding bill, let’s take a  look at other celebrity wedding budgets (or lack thereof).

Kate Middleton & Prince William

Their royal wedding last April at the Westminster Abbey in England cost an estimated $34 million. It is rumored that most of that budget went towards security for the special day.

Kim Kardashian & Kris Humphries

Even though the couple has since split, it doesn’t mean we can’t admire the amount of money they dropped on the event last August. Her fairytale wedding cost upwards of $6 million. Keep in mind that that is the cost AFTER the discounts she received for promoting companies on her Twitter and TV shows. Sheesh! I wonder what the price would have looked like before those were taken into consideration!

Eva Longoria & Tony Parker

The Desperate Housewives star married the NBA player on July 7, 2007. This lavish affair is estimated to have cost about $1.5 million. Her dress was about half the cost, ringing up at $75,000!

Sir Elton John & David Furnish

Back in 2005, the couple threw down $1.75 million for their special day. They exchanged vows in front of about 700 guests in England on the day that gay unions were legalized in the UK.

s

The average American wedding costs somewhere around $27,000, but that is nothing in comparison to the weddings of celebrity couples. Throwing down millions of dollars, their weddings will outshine ours any day of the week!

Walk Down the Aisle in the Perfect Wedding Dress This Season

Who doesn’t love weddings? More importantly what girl doesn’t love shopping for her wedding dress… even if she doesn’t even have a boyfriend yet! C’mon admit it – we’ve all done a little browsing here and there or watched a million re-runs of Say Yes to the Dress on TLC. Wedding dresses are exciting to shop for, so here are some awesome dress styles to look out for this year. First, check out Randy Fenoli on the Today show where he discusses his experience as a consultant and 4 fabulous dress trends: raw edge, accessories, color, and lace. I’m just going to add on to what Randy mentions in the video though.

Kate Middleton inspired three of the five different trends that I’m bringing to you last year with her gorgeous, custom-made wedding gown: lace, illusion necklines, and sleeves. Lace has skyrocketed in popularity since she made her way down the aisle in lace sleeves. The vintage style has been given a modern twist, adding a touch of class (and texture) to wedding gowns. Illusion necklines have also become more popular. There is something extremely sexy about these necklines – the fact that you’re covering up without actually covering up is perfect for a wedding. Lastly, her dress gave sleeves a new life. We used to just really see strapless gowns, but after Kate’s dress we are seeing much more sleeve usage – even something as simple as off the shoulder sleeves.

Also, like Randy mentioned in the video, color is playing a bigger role in wedding dresses. Personally, I am much more of a fan of the lighter sherbert options as opposed to the bolder brighter colors.

The last trend I wanted to talk about was ruffles. The raw edge look that Randy mentioned in the video was based on ruffles and movement and architecture. Ruffles give a wedding dress a great look, adding dimension to the gown. Plus, ruffles really help you show off your personality if that’s the type of dress you choose to go with.

What type of wedding dress will you have? A-line, mermaid, fit and flare, ball gown, strapless, lace, chiffon…??? Let’s hear it and take our own poll of what’s most popular this season based on our own votes!

How to Wear the Jean’s Trend

Everyone wears jeans, but it can get a little boring wearing the same old denim styles over and over again. Luckily, this summer has brought around a few different jean trends that are likely to fit any style and are much more exciting than your basic old blue jean. So what’s the skinny on this summer’s jeans?

1. Bright Colors

Calvin Klein advertises this trend here (check out the website for their entire denim collection or go to calvinkleinjeans.com). Of course, I would recommend wearing a shirt with your jeans when you go out in public… but that’s just me!

2. Pastel Hues

Mint green has got to be this season’s hottest color. If you don’t already have a pair of mint pants, get your butt to the nearest mall! Along with mint, I’m also talking other mild colors like light yellow or pink. these can be paired with a bright (possibly neon) color on top or even something as simple as white or beige – it’s your choice!

3. White

White jeans have always been a summer staple. I mean “no wearing white before memorial day or after labor day” pretty much limits the white trend to the summer, so make sure to take advantage of it! White jeans are the perfect summer trend and can be paired with virtually any top. As you can see to the right, you can even go white on white for an ultra chic and sophisticated look.

4. Prints

From springy florals to animal prints, jeans are coming in all sorts of prints and patterns this summer. Be sure to pair this trend with a solid top as to not look too busy. Also, if the printed pants look is too much for you, try testing the trend out with shorts first. Its much less overwhelming being that it’s covering less of your body.

5. Skinny Crop

Skinny jeans that are cropped at the ankle are a fresh take on the typical skinny jeans. This trend is best-suited for women with longer, leaner legs.

Have you been wearing any of these trends this summer? Which is your favorite?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

The Sun is Beaming, Grab Some Shade(s): The Right Sunglasses For You

Shades are a necessity during the summer seasons, but what’s hot and what’s not changes each year. So what’s in this summer and which of those trends fit your face shape? Read on fashionistas!

Square, angular faces should stick to round shades. This helps soften your features and draws attention away from your strong jawline and towards your eyes.

s

Heart-shaped faces should try to mimic their face shape and choose glasses that are wider at the top than at the bottom. A lot of the more vintage styles such as aviators, wayfarers, and cat-eyes fit your face best.

s

Oval faces have the easiest time shopping for sunglasses because many of the shapes and styles out there will flatter your face. Oversized, aviators, square frames – whatever floats your boat. The most important thing to pay attention to with oval faces are your features. If you have a small oval face with small features, avoid the oversized look as to not look like your face is being attacked by your shades.

s

s

Round faces require angular sunglasses in order to balance out the roundness of your face, so look for straight lines and hard angles. Rectangular glasses are best for this type of face, and remember to pay attention to proportion again. Don’t choose small frames if you have a larger face and features.
