Katy Perry recently made headlines for wearing a too-revealing “wedding dress,” but it wasn’t for her wedding, it was for Sesame Street.
If rumors are to be believed, Katy Perry’s actual wedding day is imminent. Perry celebrated her Cirque du Soleil-themed bachelorette party in Vegas recently and fiancé Russell Brand had his “stag do” in London last weekend. So what will she really wear for her upcoming wedding to Brand? Only her stylist knows, but until then…
Let’s play my favorite game: celebrity stylist for a day. If I were to pick Katy Perry’s wedding dress, she’d wear one of the following two designs:
On the left is a 50s-inspired bridal gown by Justin Alexander, which would appeal to Perry’s vintage-loving style. On the right is a more modern wedding dress by Lazaro. Its practically sheer top and figure-hugging silhouette would also suit Perry’s style.
So, which way will she go? Vintage or modern? We’ll have to wait and see. But either way, I foresee a birdcage veil.

The rumors are flying that Nicole Richie and Joel Madden are planning on tying the knot in December. According to E! Online, Richie supposedly had a bachelorette party in Mexico last weekend and Christina Aguilera, a guest at the party, was photographed wearing a t-shirt that read “Nicole’s Bachelorette 9/17/10” on the back.
But the all-important question is: What wedding gown will Nicole Richie wear? According to E!, the mother of two has yet to find a wedding dress and is still searching for one with her stylist Simone Harouche.
Well, we’ve got a couple of suggestions for her.
The “Wonderland” wedding gown by Monique Lhuillier (left) has a trumpet silhouette that will elongate Richie’s body and legs and make her appear taller than 5’1”. Plus the beautiful detailing looks like frost, which is perfect for a winter wedding.
Alternatively, the “Sasha” dress by Melissa Sweet (right) is a simpler, yet equally elegant wedding dress. It has long, vertical flowing lines and empire waist will give her the illusion of height. Paired with a light wrap, it would be ideal for a December wedding in Southern California (if that’s where they wind up getting married).
