How much did you appreciate Madonna's wedding dress, and what designers created the images for Cindy Crawford and Carolyn Bisset? BeautyHack has a second selection of iconic brides. Read the first part of the material here.
Elvis and Priscilla Presley were married on May 1, 1967. Elvis was 32 and Priscilla was 22. The wedding took place at The Aladdin Hotel in Las Vegas. On this occasion, a press conference was organized for the invited journalists. At the same time, the ceremony turned out to be intimate for newlyweds of this level: 100 guests and 14 closest people, in whose presence Elvis and Priscilla took their oaths. The bride-to-be bought a dress with lace sleeves and pearls secretly, wearing a wig. At the ceremony, she complemented it with a rhinestone tiara, veil and fleece: “It looked like she could fit eight people in her head,” said Karal Ann Marling, author of the Elvis book Graceland, about the hairdo.
Hollywood's golden age star Lucille Ball first married in 1940. She was 28 years old, and her chosen one, musician and actor Desi Arnaz, was 23. Lucille was wearing a classic lace dress and traditional 40s-style curls. The couple broke up after 20 years, remaining friends.
Audrey wore a wedding dress twice. The first time she married at 25 years old, actor and director Mel Ferrer. Audrey wore a satin beaded dress designed by Pierre Balmain (founder of the Balmain brand). The wedding took place in the resort town of Bürgenstock in Switzerland.
Writer Jackie Collins (sister of Hollywood actress Joan Collins) and businessman Valles Austin were married in 1960. The marriage was unsuccessful: four years later, the couple broke up, giving birth to a daughter. But the image of Jackie went down in history! The girl was wearing a satin dress with a closed top, embroidered with flowers and pearls, a long veil and classic pumps. The wedding took place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
In 1975, Cher married rocker Gregg Allman. Moreover, the singer received an offer a couple of days after her divorce from another musician - Sonny Bono. Greg and Cher behaved like real rock stars: having registered a marriage in Las Vegas, they divorced within 9 days due to Greg's drug addiction. The relationship did not end at the same time: in two years the couple gave birth to a son and recorded a joint album "Two the Hard Way".
Meryl has been married to sculptor Don Gummer for 39 years, and the couple have four children and an impressive career (Meryl has 19 Oscar nominations). The couple got married in 1978 in the garden of Streep's parental home and, despite the doubts of loved ones, showed what a long relationship should be! Meryl was then 29 years old.
The traditional Scottish wedding with Guy Ricci at an old English estate in 2001 was preceded by another, less pretentious ceremony with Sean Penn in Malibu. Madonna (she was 26) and Sean (24) met in 1985 and got married the same year. The couple wanted to organize a private ceremony on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, but made their wedding vows to the noise of helicopters with reporters. Madonna's wedding dress along with a veil and shoes in 2014 was sold at Julien's Auction for $ 81,250.
"Charlie's Angel" Farrah Fossett married actor Lee Majors in 1973. If you want to google what Ferrah's wedding dress was like, get links to shops with outfits just like the actress. Her look has become so iconic! Farra wore a fitted dress to the floor, a hat with wide brims and bows, and a huge bouquet of wildflowers.
Instead of hosting a royal reception, John F. Kennedy Jr. and Carolyn Bisset swore vows in 1996 with their loved ones at a Baptist church on an island off the coast of Georgia. A silk dress adorned with pearls, Carolyn sewed an unknown then Narciso Rodriguez. And it was this work that brought him fame!
Jada Pinkett Smith
Will and Jada Smith have been married for 20 years. The secret ceremony took place on New Year's Eve in 1997 in Jada's hometown of Baltimore. The girl was wearing a silk turtleneck dress with velvet inserts from Badgley Mischka.
For a beach ceremony with businessman Randy Gerber in 1998, Cindy chose a simple silk peignoir dress from John Galliano. The wedding was played in Hawaii. The union turned out to be very strong: the couple is still together, raising two children who followed in the footsteps of their mother. Daughter Kaia, for example, became the face of Daisy Marc Jacobs this year.
Michelle and Barack Obama's wedding photos on the web are always accompanied by the cutest emojis. “We were having lunch in a restaurant, then a waiter came up with a dessert and a tray, he had a ring on it. And I was shocked,”Michelle told ABC News about her engagement. The couple got married in 1992 in Chicago. Michelle was wearing a dream dress from the 90s: open shoulders, long sleeves and a veil.
