5 Celebrity Bridal Makeup Looks

Kate Middleton

The Duchess of Cambridge chose a relatively natural look for her wedding day, with the emphasis on her cheeks and brows. Use a pomade for a pronounced brow, or even a pencil to fill in any of those gaps or sparse hairs.

Ivanka Trump

For more of a sun-kissed look, Ivanka Trump chose to play-up her features with peach and coppery tones. An illuminator will create the illusion of light on the face, especially when applied onto the cheekbones, brow bone, nose and chin.

Hilary Duff

If you’re planning to wear your hair up or slicked-back, why not try some of Hilary Duff’s makeup for her nuptials to Mike Comrie. Make sure to blend the foundation onto your ears, neck, and chest so there are no white patches in your wedding photos!

5 Celebrity Bridal Makeup Looks

Kim Kardashian

For Kim’s wedding to Kris Humphries, she chose a stunning look with an emphasis on glossy lips and a contoured cheek. Sculpt the face by using a shade slightly darker than your natural skin-tone, then make sure to blend, blend, blend!

Poppy Delevingne

Older sister Poppy went for a sultry look for her summer wedding in London. For the eyelids, use a light reflecting eyeshadow to emphasise green or blue eyes. You can also lightly dust it over your cheekbones for an instant highlighting shade.

Top 10 Celebrity Bridesmaid Dresses

Choosing a one-size-fits-all bridesmaid dress is never an easy battle, especially since body shapes can make the same dress look different on every woman! Here is a little inspiration from our favourite celebrities (and their bridal party), as we count down the top ten celebrity bridesmaid dresses.

10. Jessica Simpson

Jessica Simpson’s wedding to Eric Johnson was a relaxed, country affair and the bridesmaid’s gowns very much reflected this. The flattering, v-neck dresses were layered with chiffon and perfectly complimented all nine of the bridal party!


9. Hilary Duff

For her wedding in 2010, Hilary Duff picked out a stunning wrap dress for her five bridesmaids. The flattering colour of lilac was perfect for the Californian wedding, and complimented Hilary’s fabulous gown.


8. Erica Pelosini

Fashionista Erica Pelosini chose bright blue layered gowns for her bridesmaids during her nuptials in the Italian countryside. Did we forget to mention that matching blue nail polish was also on the cards? It matched beautifully with gold details, such as jewellery and shoes.


7. Rochelle Wiseman

Singer Rochelle from The Saturdays chose a strapless style for her bridesmaids and fellow singers for the big day. The flattering style was perfect for all of the girls, and was adorned with crystals on the bodice.


6. Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian’s first nuptials to Kris Humphries saw the entire bridal party dressed in white. The five bridesmaids were styled in a white strapless gown, which cinched in at the waist and billowed out towards the bottom.


5. Kate Moss

Model Kate Moss and her 14 bridesmaids (one of which was daughter Lila Grace) and flower girls were perfectly adorned in white lace and flower garlands for the bohemian wedding.


4. Poppy Delevingne

For Poppy Delevigne’s London leg of the wedding (she had another ceremony soon-after in Marrakech), bridesmaids such as little sister Cara were dressed in flowy, white ensembles.


3. Scheana Marie

The star of Vanderpump Rules picked out a handmade cropped top and skirt for herself, but went a little more traditional for her bridesmaids. They were dressed in long, chiffon gowns with jewels encrusted on the bodice.


2. Lauren Conrad

Designer and reality television star Lauren Conrad went for an off-white theme for her bridal party. Maid of honour included friend and fellow Laguna Beach castrate, Lo Bosworth who chose a sleeveless dress for the nuptials.


1. Ashley Tisdale

Coming in at number one, is actress Ashley Tisdale. She went with a soft colour palette for her wedding and each bridesmaid wore a dress which flattered their body type.

Bridesmaid and fellow actor Vanessa Hudgens wore a stunning halter-neck gown with matching flowers. Even though the dresses were different, bridesmaids kept it simple with the same braided hairstyle.

Classic Jewellery Options For Brides

Finding accessories which are understated to match your wedding dress are often few and far between. For most brides, delicate earrings, minimal bracelets, and fine jewellery are the best options since they don’t take the focus away from the main piece, which is of course the wedding dress.

We have picked out a few favourite styles which are perfect for the bride who wants to add a finishing touch to her entire look.

Hair clips

Take your hair to the next level with some amazing hair accessories for your wedding day. Clips are perfect if you choose to style your hair up or down, and bring a classic look to any ensemble.

Jewellery Options For Brides


Stick to basic pearls if you want to keep your look fairly minimal, and can only choose one piece of jewellery to wear. Not only are pearls an investment, but you can also wear them after your wedding has passed. They never go out of style!

Jewellery Options For Brides

Tear-drop earrings

For a statement piece of jewellery, you can’t go past a pair of tear-drop earrings. These are almost an essential if you choose to wear your hair in a classic updo. They became the main focus of your accessories, and can even be worn by women without pierced ears.

Jewellery Options For Brides


An embellished headband is one of the easiest ways to transform your look, and keep hair neat and tidy throughout the wedding! This is also an amazing option for women with a front fringe, since it will keep it in place – regardless of windy weather.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Dainty necklaces

If your wedding dress is strapless, then a dainty necklace or choker is the best way to accentuate your décolletage. Stick to something simple such as an infinity sign or your initials, since it’s a nice way to tie everything together.

Although sterling silver is most popular, rose gold and gold pieces are also trendy at the moment, and available at almost every single budget.

Jewellery Options For Brides

Ear cuff

Another popular option of the last few years are classic ear cuffs. Australian designer Ryan Storer creates a number of bespoke pieces which are suitable for both brides and the maid of honour. To highlight this look, keep hair parted onto one side, and clip back to emphasise the ear cuff at all times.

Kate Bosworth Ties The Knot

Kate Bosworth has tied the knot with film director Michael Polish in an intimate ceremony in Montana.

The couple married in front of a small group of family and friends at The Ranch at Rock Creek. Guests were given Polaroid cameras and asked to post pictures on a board that said ‘Love is…’ in the lodge (love this idea!). Just recently Bosworth kept details of the nuptials to a minimum, except to reveal the wedding is “not the norm and whisky will be involved.”

The Superman Returns actress, 30, met Polish, 42, when he directed her in the 2011 movie Big Sur. He proposed to her a year later during a trip to South Korea.

“I never even dated my husband-to-be,” Bosworth told the September issue of InStyle UK. “He said to me after just a few weeks before we were even together, ‘I’m going to marry you.’ He just knew.”

Bosworth previously dated actors Alexander Skarsgard and Orlando Bloom. This is the second marriage for Polish, who has a teenage daughter, Jasper, with make-up artist Jo Strettell. They divorced in 2004.

Congratulations to the happy couple!

Elle Macpherson Marries Billionaire Jeffrey Soffer

Elle Macpherson has tied the knot with her billionaire fiance, Jeffrey Soffer in Fiji.

Macpherson, 49, and Soffer, 44, married in front of family and friends on the island. They had been engaged since March.

The couple dated for two years before splitting in March 2012. But the model rushed to his side following a horrific helicopter crash in the Bahamas in November last year, which killed his friend and saw Soffer undergo surgery for a fractured vertebrae.

The real estate developer is based in Miami, and Macpherson is believed to be preparing to relocate there from London.

Macpherson was previously married to fashion photographer Gilles Bensimon from 1986 to 1989.

She dated French financier Arpad Busson for 10 years from 1995 to 2005 and has two sons with him: Arpad Flynn, 15, and Aurelius Cy, 10.

Jennifer Aniston: “We Already Feel Married”

Jennifer Aniston sets the record straight on rumours her wedding with Justin Theroux has been postponed.

“We have yet to set any date,” Aniston, 44, told Associated Press while promoting her latest film We’re the Millers, in New York.

“There have been no canceled weddings. There have been no postponed weddings. There have been no arguments about where to get married. Just clearing all that up.”

Aniston and Theroux, 41, have been engaged since last August, and insists they are just waiting for the right time .

“We just want to do it when it’s perfect, and we’re not rushed, and no one is rushing from a job or rushing to a job.

“And, you know, we already feel married.”

Tina Turner Marries Long-Term Partner In Switzerland

Tina Turner has married her long-term partner Erwin Bach in Switzerland.

Turner, 73, tied the knot with Bach, 57, a German record company executive, in a civic ceremony on the shores of Lake Zurich.

The couple are also planning a Buddhist ceremony this weekend in Zurich, where Turner has lived for the last 15 years. And it looks to be a star-studded affair, with Oprah, David Bowie, singer Sade and about 120 guests due to attend.

Turner will be wearing a gown designed by Giorgio Armani, and she has asked all guests to wear white.

The singer was previously married to Ike Turner from 1962 until their divorce in 1976. In her memoir she revealed years of spousal abuse. Ike died in 2008 of a cocaine overdose.

In 2000 the adorable couple spoke out about their relationship and why they didn’t see the need to get married.

“We are married – we just haven’t walked down the aisle, and until there’s a need to, we probably won’t,” Turner said back then.

Bach agreed: “We don’t need a marriage to be together. Some people need that security thing, but I think if you’re internally happy with your partner, you don’t need symbols.”

Congratulations to the happy couple!
