    I recently stumbled across Krikor Jabotian on Instagram, and it’s no surprise his dresses caught my eye: His first job out of school was with Elie Saab, a Save the Date favorite. Krikor’s dresses are distinctly his own, but they have a hint of the Elie Saab romanticism we love so much. All of his collections are worth a click-through, but I think these two short dresses are especially inspired.

    I mean, could you just die? They’re unlike anything I’ve ever seen.

    Here’s a real bride wearing one of his more traditional gowns:

    Looks like their surprise wedding in France wasn’t their first wedding: Angelina Jolie revealed to Italian magazine Io Donna that she and Brad Pitt were married“long before they tied the knot last summer,” Us Weekly is reporting.


    From Us: “Before the wedding in France with the kids, Brad and I were already married in California,” Angelina told the mag. ”As Americans, we couldn't marry legally in France.”

    “One day I said to Brad, ‘Let’s meet up at 4:30 P.M.’ I called a justice of the peace, and we signed the documents.”

    A source told Us that Angelina referred to herself as being married as early as last March.

    Thoughts on Angelina and Brad Pitt’s pre-wedding marriage?

    My husband I did the same thing, for residency reasons. (#twinsies?)

    I’ve given you all the standard reasons to to consider hosting a winter wedding: You’ll save money, since it’s the off-season. Your friends will be more excited about your nuptials, since they’re not attending a wedding every weekend. I mean, I admit those aren’t the sexiest motivation, but here are 12 very good reasons—in the form of wintry wedding pictures—that might just change your mind. You’re not getting moonlit snowfall or snowcapped mountains in the backdrop if you’re swapping vows in May, after all. Check out all this prettiness:

    Happy anniversary, Fergie! The singer—who marriedJosh Duhamel in Malibu six years ago today—shared a #fbf picture from their wedding day:

    Here’s another pic from their wedding day, if you want a better look at her curve-hugging dress.

    The couple welcomed baby Axl Jack in August of 2013. (Click here for an awwwww-dorable newborn pic.)

    Jessica Simpson’s wedding photographer, Elizabeth Messina, just shared a wedding picture that made me gasp—and there aren’t even any people in it :) How ethereal is this shot of Jess’s BFF’s Marchesabridesmaid dresses:

    If you cross-reference that shot with this picture of the bridesmaids, it looks like the dress on the far left was by bridesmaid Jessie Holiday. The dress next to it was worn by Jess’s childhood friend Cacee Cobb (Mrs. Donald Faison!). I’m not sure which dress the bralet goes with, but the next dress looks like the one worn by Stephenie Pearson (far right, in the bridesmaid pic), and the two-piece dress on the far right looks like Erin Alexander’s. (Next to Cacee in the pic.)

    How breathtaking is Elizabeth’s photo—even without people in the dresses?!

    Jessica’s golden wedding dress—an absolute favorite of mine—was by Carolina Herrera.

    I read somewhere that on Saturday night, Amal Clooney was playing dress-up at home, jumping in and out of probably the most gorgeous gowns in the world before settling on Dior for last night’s Golden Globes. And George Clooney was watching sports.


    Of course he was. George Clooney didn’t need to sweat his Golden Globes look, because George Clooney has worn an Armani tux on every single red carpet since the beginning of time. (Seriously. Google image search “george clooney tuxedo.”) In fact, he didn’t even pick a NEW Armani tuxedo for the Golden Globes—he wore his wedding tux.

    I mean, I give the man credit for being resourceful. And not adding to his never-ending collection of Armani tuxes when clearly he had plenty to pick from. But it’s kind of infuriating that a groom gets to wear the same thing to, say, a wedding or a red carpet event. And if your groom opts for a suit instead of a tux, he can wear that to other people’s weddings, funerals, and job interviews, too. Infuriating!

    Will you ever get to wear your wedding dress again? Are you a teeny bit resentful that your groom will get endless re-wears? Just a teeny bit?

    There were plenty of wedding-worthy white dresses on the Golden Globes red carpet last night, but one celeb was wearing an actual wedding dress.



    Kristen Wiig’s low-waisted, off-the-shoulder gown was straight off Delphine Manivet’s spring 2015 runway, from her Pagan Bride collection.

    Did you like Kristen’s dress on her? And would you wear it as a bride?

    I liked it on Kristen; I think it fits with her quirky style. (And I have a soft spot for Delphine Manivet wedding dresses.)

    Your wedding stationery can cost you loads and loads of money {I recently saw a pro athlete’s wedding invite that was an iPad—for every wedding guest }, but it doesn’t have to. I absolutely adore this bookmark save-the-date, which you could re-create SO inexpensively.

    A photo posted by Krista Roser (@kristaroser) on

    It looks like this bookmark involved custom artwork, but you could probably come up with something inexpensive on your own and print them at home. (I would use the heaviest paper your printer can handle, so it doesn’t seem flimsy.) Then you just add a yarn tassel—here’s your how-to—which you could make so cheaply. (Check the dollar store for yarn—you’re not wearing it, after all.) I *think* you could even mail this like a standard letter, so for the price of a stamp, but I’d check with your post office for that.

    Are you loving this sweet save-the-date too? Would you copycat it?

    Obviously I haven’t stopped scrutinizing Charlize Theron’s left hand since news broke that she and Sean Penn are engaged. But, silly me, I forgot to keep an eye on her right hand. And look what I just noticed:


    That’s Charlize’s hand over the weekend at the 4th Annual Sean Penn and Friends Help Haiti Home Gala Benefit.

    Let’s go in for a closer look:


    Yes, I KNOW it’s her right hand, but let’s keep in mind that Charlize and Sean have kept their engagement under wraps thus far, so it seems likely that she wouldn’t parade around wearing an engagement ring on THAT finger. And the opposite hand seems like a convenient place to stow a secret engagement ring. Supporting my case: (1) The ring is clearly too big for her right ring finger, which might mean it was fitted to another finger. And (2) She wouldn’t be the first celeb to do an engagement ring switcheroo before announcing her news. (While engagement rumors swirled, Hayden Panettiere wore a sparkly right hand ring for months before confirming her engagement news. (3) Charlize’s ring really looks like an engagement ring, right?

    So is this Charlize Theron’s engagement ring from Sean Penn? Any takers on my $10 bet? Anyone?

    When this aquamarine ring popped into my Instagram feed yesterday, I instantly swooned—and went on a mad hunt for more vintage-y birthstone engagement rings. The rings I came up with are below. (Birthstones can vary depending on who you ask; I used this chart. Except April babies, you got white topaz, since an all-diamond ring would kind of miss the point.)

    I stumbled across Duke Photography on Instagram yesterday*, and I’m LOVING their engagement shoot M.O. Instead of wearing slightly nicer-than-average engagement outfits, a lot of their clients get super-duper dressed-up for their engagement pictures. I’m talking grooms in tuxes and brides in full-on ball gowns.

    This is my new favorite thing—you know, as of yesterday—for three reasons: (1) There are so few occasions to get majorly dressed up in real life. Why not create one? (2) For the rest of your life, you’re going to have pictures taken in your everyday clothes. I think it’s awesome to seriously step it up when you can. And (3) Your wedding is the next—and maybe last—time you’ll get red-carpet dressed-up. It can’t hurt to have a dry run in similarly shmancy clothes, right? Just look how stunning these images are:

    I’m always eyeing the black-tie dresses on Rent the Runway. If I got a do-over I would totally rent something way over-the-top, like this Marchesa gown. (And you know, take engagement pictures. Which we didn’t.)

    Would you get crazy dressed-up for your engagement pics? Or will you wear a slightly nicer version of what you always wear?

    PS: I know my headline is overly dramatic. It’s late and I have limited self-control. And really, everything else does look unexciting next to formal wear.

    *Someone I follow on Instagram regrammed the top picture yesterday. If it’s you, speak up.

    Until I looked at the season as a whole, I didn’t realize how romantic the fall 2015 runways were. Wedding dresses with soft silhouettes and miles of tulle—it’s like the designers were high on love. Here are 18 insanely gorgeous gowns I’m still dreaming about three months later.

    Wedding Dress 1: ANGEL SANCHEZ

    Wedding Dress 2: ANNE BARGE

    Wedding Dress 3: CAROLINA HERRERA

    Wedding Dress 4: DENNIS BASSO

    Wedding Dress 5: ELIZABETH FILLMORE

    Wedding Dress 6: HOUGHTON BRIDE

    Wedding Dress 7: INBAL DROR

    Wedding Dress 8: LAZARO

    Wedding Dress 9: LAZARO

    Wedding Dress 15: TARA KEELY

    Wedding Dress 16: TARA LA TOUR

    Wedding Dress 17: TEMPERLEY BRIDAL

    Wedding Dress 18: VERA WANG

    Clearly I’m loving peek-a-shoe hemlines, deep V-necklines, unexpected flashes of skin, and semi-sheer skirts. (And tulle. Always tulle.) And yes, for the first time ever, one designer, Lazaro, had two dresses in my best-of picks. Both are awesome and I just couldn’t choose a favorite.

    So you've been issued a bridesmaid dress in a bright or pastel shade. Even if you're excited to wear this particular color, deciding what makeup will complement it can be a confusing task—and if you're not excited to wear the color, it can be slightly terrifying. Thankfully, this week's Golden Globes offered fresh inspiration, with a handful of actresses wearing gowns in favorite wedding colors. Here are the makeup shades that were paired with each.

    Dress color: Pink
    Makeup to try: Non-matching pink lipstick like Gwyneth Paltrow's


    Rather than match Paltrow's bubble-gum-pink gown, makeup artist Leslie Lopez opted for lipstick in a slightly different pink, to avoid a dated matchy-matchy effect. (The exact shade shown here goes on sale in March: Dior Rouge Dior Brillant Lipshine in Swan #263.)

    On the eyes, stay soft and sheer. "I didn't want to overdo it on the eyes, so I used a sheer layer of the silver shade in the beautiful Dior Versailles palette, which was perfect," says Lopez. Don't forget a little bronzer if you feel like a very pink dress is washing out your complexion.

    Dress color: Purple
    Makeup to try: Jewel-box eyes and lips like Lupita Nyong'o's


    With a purple dress, you could try the same pink-and-sheer-silver palette seen above on Gwyneth Paltrow—always a safe and flattering option when you're wearing pastel. Or, if your personality (and the wedding's vibe) beg for something bolder, add glints of feminine jewel tones. On Nyong'o, makeup artist Nick Barose added a contrasting fuchsia lip (Lancome Color Design Lipcolor in Hit List) and dusted her eyelids with twinkling, vivid blue and violet from the Lancome Bright Eyes Color Design 5-Pan Eyeshadow Palette in Jacaranda Bloom. If your skin is pale, try applying the colors in a lighter, more sheer way to avoid going overboard.

    Dress color: Yellow
    Makeup to try: An orange-red lip like Leslie Mann's


    Whether you're wearing soft yellow or a canary hue, red lips are always a beautiful option, adding gorgeous, classic juxtaposition. Going more orange, like Mann did, adds a modern twist and even more pop/personality. Makeup artist Jillian Dempsey used Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipstick in Marigold paired with warm coral blush.

    For neutral definition on the eyes, she began with a taupe base (Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eye Shadow in Truffle) and used a darker tone (Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Eyeshadow in Spice) in the crease, blending it out and up to contour the shape of the eye. "Also apply this color underneath the lower lash line to darken the look," she suggests.

    Dress color: Blue
    Makeup to try: Warm bronze and apricot tones like Amy Adams'


    When you're wearing cool blue, try going in the opposite direction with your makeup tones, suggests makeup artist Stephen Sollitto, who opted against using steely blues to match Adams' Golden Globes gown. Instead, he added bronze smoky eyes and warm apricot cheeks and lips.

    After applying buttercream-color shadow all over as a neutral canvas, he used the bronze color from the Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow in Mystic Eyes on the almond shape of the eye and in the crease. After lining eyes in dark brown, he smudged in a bit of copper eyeshadow for a touch of drama, and on the bottom lash line, smudged on some of the bronze shadow.

    Will you be wearing a bright bridesmaid dress soon, or have you ever? What makeup will you/did you choose?

    When I saw Anna Faris walk the red carpet at last week’s Golden Globes, I noticed that something seemed to be missing from her left hand: a wedding ring. I could’ve sworn she and Chris Pratt were married, so I googled it and, yep, they swapped vows in 2009. But it looks like she’s never worn a wedding ring. Here’s her post-wedding hand in 2010:


    And she’s not the only celeb who goes without a wedding ring. Viola Davis has been married to Julius Tennon since 2003 but wears her engagement ring solo.


    And we’ve already discussed how Mrs. Kanye Westdoesn’t wear a wedding ring—even though we know (based on this picture) that she got one on her wedding day.


    I’m kind of fascinated by the phenomenon.

    On the other end of the spectrum, of course, we have Amy Adams, who wears three wedding-y looking rings with her engagement ring (we discussed this in January of 2014) even though she isn’t married.


    As I said back then: So many questions. So few celebrities calling me to clarify. **sigh**

    Will you wear a wedding band with your engagement ring? Or is one ring enough for you?

    I was thrilled when Glamour’s red carpet maven, Jessica Radloff, sent me a picture of Jamie Chung in Yanina Couture at last night’s Critics’ Choice Awards; I just adore that dress.


    And I’m even more thrilled to share that Jess snapped an up-close pic of Jamie’s Johnathon Arndtengagement ring. She and Bryan Greenberg have been engaged for more than a year, but this is the first time we’re getting a good look at her ring.


    So insanely pretty, right?

    Would you want an engagement ring similar to Jamie Chung’s or do you have something different in mind?

    Did you recently get engaged? Congratulations! And that ring—wow! Everybody loves it, you've been sharing pictures of it on social media, and you don't ever want to take it off. Here are four things you need to know about having and wearing your new bling:


    Blue Nile diamond engagement ring

    1. Insure that ring immediately!
    Your fiancé may have even been thoughtful enough to do that for you, but if not, it's first on your list. It's easy if you already have a homeowner's or renter's policy. Just call them, send a scan or fax of the appraisal, and they'll add it onto your policy. It's not that expensive, but the value is priceless if, God forbid, something unforeseen happens. If the ring didn't come with an appraisal, you need to have one done in order to insure it. Just make sure to go to a reputable jeweler.

    2. Speaking of jewelers, if you don't know the jeweler that you're taking your ring to, don't let the ring out of your sight if you can help it.
    It only takes a moment for an expert to swap stones on you. And yes, it really does happen. That's not an urban legend. Get a referral to a jeweler—don't look it up in online or in the Yellow Pages.

    3. Put it on your calendar to get your ring settings checked by a jeweler (preferably where it was purchased, if possible) annually.
    They'll clean it (much better than you can do yourself) and check the prongs and make sure the stones are safe. Even the most beautiful platinum settings may separate depending on how much wear and tear they take.

    4. Make sure you have ring stands.
    One on your dresser, and one in your kitchen. Never set down your engagement ring (and later, your wedding ring) anyplace else in your house. Kitchen accidents happen— you'd be surprised to find out how many rings have been destroyed by garbage disposals.

    Sure, the first kiss at the #kimye wedding (in front of that crazy flower wall) is still the most-liked photo on Instagram, but Colorado Rockies pitcher Adam Ottavino married girlfriend Brette Wolff at California’s San Ysidro Ranch this weekend, and the flowers at their wedding were some of the most over-the-top awesome that I’ve ever seen. I know this because I follow their wedding planner, Lisa Vorce, on Instagram. (Lisa also planned Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s Lake Como wedding and this super-posh baby shower.) Check out these blooms:

    A photo posted by Lisa Vorce (@lisavorce) on

    To give you some perspective, the groom is 6'5". And the flowers didn’t stop there.

    Here’s a close-up of the flowers above:

    This flower “tree” stood over the place cards:

    And the reception tables were overflowing with flowers too:

    The flowers were by Mark’s Garden, who does pretty much all the celebrity weddings. (Jessica Simpson, Gwen Stefani, Fergie, and Ellen and Portia, to name a few.)

    I understand that draw of having your bridesmaids in matching dresses, but finding a dress to please everyone can be a major headache. So what if you sent your girls these three bridesmaid dresses—all from Monique Lhuillier Bridesmaids—and let ’em pick their favorite? Since they’re all the same color and have similar fabrications, they’ll look effortlessly beautiful together.


    Obviously since they’re bridesmaid dresses they come in a bunch of colors, but I’m digging the soft pink.

    Would you want to wear any these dresses as a bridesmaid? Would you ask your friends to wear any of these?

    Would it be awkward if I bought the one on the left, just to wear to weddings? Because I kind of want it.
