Vera Wang is a name we all know well. While she also has successful clothing, jewelry, and shoe lines, Wang is most famous for her wedding dresses. Her designs are unparalleled, and many brides seek out only her brand for their wedding day. Celebrities often have custom-made gowns from Wang for their wedding, and although most of us will never get to share in that experience, we can all swoon at custom looks we may try to imitate one day. Here is a list of seven celebrities who sported Wang wedding dresses.
Marrying her longtime boyfriend, Hayes MacArthur, Larter wore Wang’s Luxe Le Notre. The nuptials took place outdoors on the grounds of MacArthur’s family home. Larter’s ivory gown boasted an A-line shape and lace applique designs throughout. The neckline, a couture choice, appeared strapless but had delicate spaghetti straps that hovered right at the curve of the shoulder. Lace scallops adorned the modest bust lines. The gown’s silhouette dropped past the waist and continued into a simple but elegant skirt. Along the back, the dress fell into a more open look, coming to a stop just before the curve of the back began. What an elegant Wang style for this actress!
Daring, fun, and adorable are three ways to describe Cuoco’s beautiful Wang choice. Married on New Year’s Eve 2013, she tied the knot with boyfriend Ryan Sweeting, who (pictures show) loved getting close and personal to this playful dress. Cuoco’s gown, pretty in pink, was a great expression of her fun personality. She chose a more natural, girly look for her hair — down and curly. The gown, made of soft tulle, had a drop waist and exploded into a full skirt for the perfect ball gown look. Strapless and fearless, Cuoco rocked the dance floor with her new hubby in the dress of her dreams.
Pregnancy never stopped a woman like Keys from looking fabulous. Donning a one-shoulder look, the bump just added to her Grecian glow. This Wang style, perfect for anyone wanting an effortless look, was made of silky chiffon for total comfort and ease. The one-shoulder look made for a seamless fit, and the peekaboo detailing on the front gave the gown a more high-end feel. An elegant flutter trailed off the shoulder’s back, making for an apt display of the singer’s classy personality. Just like the gown, Keys made a fantastic choice on the headpiece, keeping the theme of the Grecian goddess. Crystals adorned her head in a multi-layered headband. This girl was on fire for her wedding day!
A fantastic look that married modern and traditional beautifully, Clinton’s Wang dress was one we can all appreciate. She chose a more timeless look with a strapless ivory ball gown. At her wedding to Marc Mezvinsky, she beamed brightly with happiness. Her gown spoke volumes as she walked down the aisle — there’s never a dull moment in any of its detailing. Her dress was a piece of artwork, with an asymmetrically pleated bodice and a raw-edge skirt. The fullness of the bottom added so much personality to the look, the waterscape manipulations lending it a swirly, whimsical appeal. Clinton really looked like a princess on her big day!
Stunning in Vera Wang’s Gemma, Duff rocked the look. Her marriage to hockey boyfriend Mike Comrie was hosted at the former home of Michael Douglas. Duff’s gown was perfectly tailored to her figure, fitted in every way to each curve. The strapless bodice was a great choice for her, and the asymmetrical pleating throughout the mermaid silhouette proved to be extremely flattering. An easy, deconstructed look, Duff had the dress altered at the end of the bodice to create a very full effect in the skirt. Raw-edged tulle on the bottom made her look like she was walking on a cloud. A beautiful choice for the actress and singer!
Channeling her inner Grace Kelly, Vera Wang created this custom gown for Donald’s daughter. The wedding, conducted outdoors in northern New Jersey, was a great backdrop for Trump’s gown. It is speculated that Trump was a leading factor in the now-very-popular lace sleeve craze, along with other trendsetters like Kate Middleton. Trump’s gown, a classic full A-line silhouette, was adorned in lace from head to toe. The gown boasted an illusion lace bateau neckline and a high lace back — a modest and modern style. Simple elegance was something Wang aimed to accomplish with Trump’s dress, and she most certainly did that!
At her wedding to Kris Humphries, Kardashian got the ultimate look: three custom Vera Wang dresses. The first, a Basque waist ball gown, had a light sweetheart neckline, a fitted bodice, and a very full tulle skirt — fun for any girl who always dreams of being a princess on her big day! The second look, worn at the reception, was a completely opposite look; a mermaid with a choppy tulle skirt, it fit to every Kardashian curve. The final style of the evening was one we often don’t witness from celebrities (or even Vera Wang): a bias-cut crepe gown. Each Wang dress, in its own beautiful way, had the designer’s special, gorgeous touch!
