Many will think that Anne Hathaway and Jessica Biel were the first celebrity brides to ditch the traditional white wedding dress for a pink gown, but they weren’t! Looking back in time, I have discovered other stars that have given their big day a touch of pink. Gwen Stefani, Reese Witherspoon and Sharon Stone are just some of the A-Listers that have broken with tradition, and here we take a closer look at their unforgettable looks.
Actress Sharon chose a pink creation when she married Phil Bronstein on Valentine’s Day in 1998. The star’s dress was designed by Vera Wang and was made of chiffon with A-line silhouette.
In 2002 rock star Gwen married Gavin Rossdale in a white wedding dress with shades of pink on the bottom designed specially for her by John Galliano.
Julianne married her husband Bart Freundlich in an intimate ceremony and didn’t go for the usual wedding dress, instead she opted for an elegant, sleeveless pink/lilac silk Prada dress. She completed her look with sparkly earrings she had borrowed from Barkin.
Portia De Rossi
When Portia and Ellen DeGeneres tied the knot, the actress donned a Zac Posen gown that featured a blush tulle skirt.
For her wedding, which was featured in HELLO! Magazine last year, Reese opted for a blush-hued gown with a Chantilly lace corset bodice and full tulle A-line skirt by Monique Lhuillier.
Anne wore custom-made Valentino dress for her big day. It was an off-the shoulder creation with swathes of chiffon, and a Twenties-inspired headband and a flowing veil.
Designer Valentino then released a sketch of the bespoke gown that he personally designed for her. “Anne’s gown is a strapless ivory silk point d’esprit tulle dress, which included a beautiful pink hand-painted shaded train and embroidered with satin flowers,” he said.
Jessica is the last of the girls to take on the rising trend. For her October nuptials to Justin Timberlake she wore a Giambattista Valli rose-pink strapless gown, enhanced with layers of delicate tulle, specially designed for her.
Which is your favourite dress out of the above? Which celeb would like to see in a pink gown instead of the traditional white? According to some sources, Blake Lively added a bit of pink to her bridal gown. We will soon find out! The actress’ wedding will be featured in the December issue of Martha Stewart Wedding magazine.
