One aspect of this blog that you will see an adequate amount of writing on will be weddings. Yes, I'm one of those women who's quite obsessed with weddings from the engagement to the last dance.
Being a movie buff, or connoisseur if you will I love a good "movie wedding" so I figured i'd play at my own red carpet of weddings past.
Shari Headley in Coming to America 1988 - I CRIED WHEN I SAW HER IN IT
- I was 7 when this movie came out and if you were an Eddie Murphy fan or part of an African American household….you KNEW allllllll about this movie. It is one of the funniest movies EVER!!!!! My husband often times walks around the house reciting many different phrases "ah haaaaaa" (inside joke). BUT….the last scene of this movie, when Prince Hakeem thinks he's about to marry someone his father (King Jaffe Joffer) arranged for him to marry. All of a sudden you see a veiled woman with this stunning bubble gum pink ball gown and a train to rival ALL trains (including Princess Diana's train) and he lifts the veil and it's LISA (the love of his life) ugh what a moment in a movie! Ok so on 2014 this dress might not be "in" but if you take a look at celebrity brides throughout the years (Gwen Stefani, Jessica Biel, and recently Kaley Cucoco) the pink wedding dress trend is very on trend.
Kimberley Williams in Father of the Bride 1991
C'mon what little girl didn't sqee when she saw "Annie" in that beautiful white (diamond white at that) wedding gown. It was one of the most EPIC wedding movie moments in history
Jennifer Lopez in Monster in Law 2005
If you didn't wish you were "Charlie" in this movie when you saw her in this gown. It was simple and so elegant. Her hair was pulled into the perfect chignon accented with a beautiful flower. She definitely was prepared to make a statement in front of her mother in law's elite friends and family.
Anne Hathaway & Kate Hudson in Bride Wars 2010
What I love about the dresses in this movie was that the fashion stylists really paid attention to the characters that these women were playing in the movie. In the movie Anne wore "her mother's dress"which turned out to be a dress by the amazing Amsale (I don't believe she was designing gowns in that age but I digress) it was perfect for her. Meanwhile Kate adjusted her body for the wonderful world of Vera Wang in a gown that most little girls dream of but once she gets older the amount of pouf decreases to a sleeker silhouette.
