The latest trend for brides is to take their favorite red carpet looks and turn them bridal. Looking to the CFDA Awards ceremony that just passed on June 5, Jessica Chastain was both unabashedly feminine and chic donning a Prabal Gurung gown with sharp accessories from the likes of Nicholas Kirkwood (those heels could kill!). Something tells me Chastain’s stylist has been playing around with Grace Kelly’s photographs on Pinterest for inspiration, as the comparison is uncanny.
When looking to style yourself for the big day, it’s easy to get distracted in the details and it can get intimidating being under the spotlight like your celebrity favorites. Using Grace Kelly as your muse, it should come a bit easier with pinning out what “Screen Siren” must-haves would make the cut for a picture-perfect wedding. Keep in-the-know with how to perfect your wedding weekend; I say “weekend” because no starlet would allow for a one-day affair.
THE WEDDING LOOK
- The Ring: Tacori with mint prasiolite & 18k rose gold ($1,580): Pastels have made their comeback this year so why not go for the unexpected bling with a hint of vintage glam?
- The Dress: J.Crew Dinah Gown ($795): Unconventional, lovely and with the right ankle hem it could make for the perfect bridal gown.

THE POST-WEDDING BRUNCH LOOK
