Paige, Rachel McAdams’s character in The Vow, chooses an unconventional look for her nuptials—short and pink! In the film, Paige and Leo (Channing Tatum) perform an illegal wedding ceremony in a museum, so it’s only fitting that the bride’s dress bucks tradition. And McAdams isn’t the only one to try a rosy bridal gown—Reese Witherspoon wed talent agent Jim Toth last March in a blush lace design by Monique Lhuillier.

Rachel McAdams debuted new bangs this week, and it’s not the first she’s experimented with the style.

When Paige, Rachel McAdams‘s character in The Vow, loses her memory after a car accident, this elegant 18kt gold eternity band by Parade Design serves as a reminder of her life prior to the crash. “It seemed to really match Leo and Paige because it was an arty piece,” the actress told InStyle.com of the ring at The Vow‘s Hollywood premiere. McAdams’s costar Channing Tatum added that she helped choose the design. “She’s a sculptor in the movie, and Rachel made the cool decision that she probably wouldn’t want some big ring because she always has clay all over her hands,” the actor said. However, McAdams noted one issue: ”Although the clay wound up sticking in those leaves!” Shop the design for $600 (visit paradedesign.com for stores), and catch it on the big screen when The Vow hits theaters this Friday, February 10th.
