Celebrity Wedding Dresses by Body Type
Curious to know what kind of wedding dresses these recently engaged celebs will wear down the aisle? We asked Steven Birnbaum of Birnbaum & Bullock what styles he would recommend these four celebs (with extra attention paid to their unique body types). Here are his picks:
Body Type: Petite
Nicole Richie and fiance Joel Madden have been engaged since February. Some sources are saying the couple are gearing up for a secret December wedding. So what kind of wedding dress is in store for the Simple Life star? Steven recommended this elegant piece that’s perfect for Nicole’s petite frame. Too many ruffles and organza will overpower her frame, but this dress has just the right amount to make her look stylish and pretty with that Bohemian flair she loves. Jessica Simpson Body Type: Curvy
Jessica Simpson just recently announced her engagement to former NFL player Eric Johnson this past week. For Jessica’s curvy frame, Steven thinks this modified mermaid dress will enhance and support her curves.
Body type: Tall and Thin
Glee’s Jane Lynch might not be getting married in real life, but her character Sue Sylvester is! Although Sue wouldn’t be the type to wear a dress, if she did decide to dress up for her wedding day, this asymmetrical A-line gown will enhance her posture in a subtlety feminine way. Kate Middleton Body Type: Athletic
Prince William and Kate Middleton are gearing up for the wedding of the century, so the wedding dress is going to be extra important. Since Kate is tall and athletic, this dropped-waist gown will enhance her height, and the strapless bustier will show off her beautiful shoulders. The ball gown skirt is what every girl marrying a prince dreams of.
