Nobody parties like the stars, so Hollywood’s elite offer the ultimate inspiration when it comes to making it official. Chrissy Teigen (who rounded up an impressive tally of three Vera Wang wedding dresses for the occasion) and John Legend’s romantic Italian wedding was no exception—they exchanged vows in front of 125 guests. On the other end of the spectrum, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot in a secret ceremony in South Carolina, away from prying eyes (and cameras). Keira Knightley went for something a tad unconventional, celebrating her nuptials in a sweet knee-length dress already in her closet and a floral crown. From towering cakes to stolen kisses, we’ve compiled our all-time favorite moments to create the ultimate celebrity wedding album.
Busy weekend keep you from scrolling through Instagram this weekend? We rounded up the best celebrity photos, including this weekend’s biggest Instagram moment: Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s romantic wedding in Lake Como, Italy. The couple exchanged vows in front of their closest family and friends (like Kanye West and Brooklyn Decker), and Teigen couldn’t resist sharing her big day with her social media family, too. The model posted a photo of herself looking gorgeous in her first Vera Wang creation of the evening—a fairytale gown in creamy ivory—before changing into another dress for the reception followed by another dress for the after-party! But that’s not all that went down this weekend. Click the photo to see more of the star photos that had us buzzing.
Designer: Badgley Mischka
Location: Theatre at Lincoln Center
What was it like: Elegant, sleek, and very Badgley Mischka. The runway held a minimalist black and white color palette, which allowed the showstopping gowns to be the center of attention.
Why we love this collection: Chalk it up to The Little Mermaid, but any collection that uses the sirens of the sea as muses is fine by us. Designers Mark Badgley and James Mischka looked to the ocean for inspiration, using both Jacques Henri Lartigue’s beachy ’20s and ’30s-era photographs and, of course, mermaids to create a range of polished daytime separates and ethereal evening gowns. “The women in the photos were very nonchalant, and just divine looking,” Mischka said of Lartigue’s work. “For evening, we took our inspiration from the Aegean sea — our woman dives into the ocean and emerges as a mermaid.” Although the pieces pack a lot of volume, the designers used delicate, airy materials to keep each item lightweight. “The fabrics are very diaphanous,” said Badgley. “If you can’t pick it up with your pinky, it doesn’t pass the test.” The duo even mentioned how they’d love to dress Jennifer Lawrence, and we can already see the star in the ruffled aqua dress, pictured center. “I think this gown kind of exemplifies what the evening pieces are all about,” Badgley added.
Hello, sports fans! Chrissy Teigen, Malin Akerman, Selena Gomez and Olivia Wilde were among the fashionable stars who walked the red carpet next to the biggest names in basketball, tennis, gymnastics and beyond at last night’s 2013 ESPY Awards in Los Angeles — but move over Michael Phelps and Shaq, all we had our eyes on were their outfits. This annual event is no all-out gown affair, but the bright and fun summer looks the stars chose made this red carpet worth checking out. These four went for eye-popping primary hues, with Teigen in canary Izmaylova, Akerman in cobalt J. Mendel, Gomez in ruby Dolce & Gabbana and Wilde in a red A.L.C. skirt.

Soon to be newlyweds, Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen and R&B singer John Legend have been busy lately making their rounds on the red carpet. Appearing at consecutive events in Los Angeles for the Grammys and New York for Fashion Week, the on-the-go couple is never far apart. “We get ready together!” Teigen told InStyle.com at the MuiscCares Person of the Year Gala. However, for Teigen, the process is just a tad bit longer. “It takes me four hours and he’s done in about 20 minutes. He’s so easy, it’s ridiculous.” And while the stylish couple always complement each other on the red carpet, they steer away from intentionally matching. “We don’t really coordinate ever,” she continued. “He’s usually always going to be in black, white, or blue.” But will they coordinate on their wedding day? We’ll have to wait and see!

Chrissy Teigen seemed to be practicing her bridal look at the annual amfAR Gala at Wall Street Cipriani in New York last night, wearing a stunning white column by Roland Mouret. But the bride-to-be has a different designer in mind for her big day with singer John Legend. “I’m definitely going to be going with Vera Wang,” Teigen told InStyle.com at the event. “She’s fantastic. It’s going to be romantic and soft.” She wasn’t willing to give away too many details though. “I want to surprise John! It’s funny, he likes very natural—he wants you to look the same on your wedding day, he’s one of those guys. So I don’t want to do anything too crazy,” the Sports Illustrated model said. Sounds like a dreamy scenario to us!
