Here Comes The Bride

Coco Lee’s is the latest high-profile wedding of 2011. The Taiwanese singer, who married businessman Bruce Rockowitz, reportedly spent S$12.5 million (US$9.8 million) on the two-day event held at the Shaw Brothers Limited Studio in Hong Kong. Whether it’s going to be happily-ever-after or a 72-day mistake, one thing’s for sure: At the end of the day, all anyone will be talking about for years to come is The Dress. So, take a leaf out of these famous bride’s books on getting it just right.

Less Is More

She might have spent an obscene amount of money on the wedding, but we appreciate that Coco Lee picked a modest and super flattering dress to greet her guests at the cocktail reception. The wedding gown, on the other hand, is a gorgeous number from Vera Wang that is embellished with glittering crystals. Opulent, sure. But OTT it is definitely not.

Invest In Timeless Pieces

The royal wedding is certainly the most envied international event of the year. While the ivory-satin-and-lace Alexander McQueen dress has all the limelight — and the flashlight — we think that what took the crown (pun unintended) was Queen Elizabeth’s tiara, which Kate wore. This diamond-studded headband was a gift to the Queen’s mother from her father, and it was given to her on her 18th birthday. A 75-year-old jewellery that still looks so relevant today — if that’s not a classic, we don’t know what is.

Flaunt Your Assets

Kim Kardashian’s 72-day marriage may not be the best example to follow, her taste in wedding gowns are. This wedding dress by Vera Wang — one of three she wore on her big day — was customised for Kim to show off her best features in a tasteful way. The cut is flattering, accentuating Kim’s waistline and highlighting her décolletage. Sexy without being trashy — like some reality shows.
