Behold: Kim Kardashian's wedding dress has been revealed!

After months of speculation regarding which designer the reality star was going to wear for her wedding, People reports that the long-sleeved floral pattern design (above) was designed by none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. For those more familiar with Kim and less about fashion, he's the designer who famously dressed the 33-year-old in what made her look like an old lady's sofa at last year's Met Gala.

Tisci apparently also dressed Kim's groom, Kanye West, for their wedding - which took place in Florence, Italy yesterday.

Will L’Wren Scott Design Angelina’s Wedding Dress?

L'Wren ScottAmong the dozens of rumors circulating the Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt wedding, the most talked about one at the moment claims that L'Wren Scott has been tapped to design the A-list actress' wedding gown.

"[Angelina]'s been courted by some of the hottest designers on the planet, but having a big name isn't important to her... Of all the people she’s met with she feels L’Wren is the one that understands her body the most," a source said.

The rumor isn't so far-fetched, considering Angelina, 37, has worn some of Scott's creations on the red carpet.

"Angelina wanted someone who is not so obvious for designing wedding gowns. L’Wren is famed for designing clothes to suit taller, thin women like herself," the source added.

On top of that, fittings would be quite easy considering L'Wren lives in the house next to the one Angelina and Brad purchased in Surrey earlier this year!

Although the actress has tried to keep all details about her upcoming wedding to Adam Shulman under wraps, the legendary designer revealed he "did the dress" for her big day.

But she's going to be a great, great, great, great thousand times great star. She has all the qualities. And wait until you hear her voice [in Les Miserables]. She's amazing," he told E! News.

Anne previously insisted the nuptials won't take place until 2013 as she is too busy this year with the release of blockbuster movies The Dark Knight Rises and Les Miserables:

Avril Lavigne’s Ripped Up Wedding Dress

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities

Avril LavigneAvril Lavigne's wedding dress will be made up of ripped up gowns.

The "Sk8r Boi" singer - who is engaged to marry Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger - has already made plans for the outfit she will wear at her forthcoming nuptials, and may rip up a number of pieces and put them all back together.

"I have an idea of what I want. It might be something that I buy a few different dresses and rip them up and put them all together and dye them, or maybe I'll kind of do a collaboration with another designer," she said.

Avril is particularly enamored with her pear-shaped diamond engagement ring, and finds it goes with all outfits she is wearing: "I can't take it off. I sleep with it on. It goes with every outfit. Get engaged, it's the perfect accessory for every outfit. I did it. You should, too."

Keira Knightley’s Jeans and T-shirt Wedding?

James Righton and Keira KnightleyKeira Knightley may have a "jeans and t-shirt" wedding.

The Anna Karenina actress - who is engaged to Klaxons musician James Righton - thinks it would be "pretty generous" if Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld offered to create a gown for her, but is not sure if it would be the right choice yet.

"Well, that would be pretty generous of him. He's an incredible designer. Would I say yes? To be honest, I'm working on another film straight after Anna Karenina, which finishes after Christmas. Then, maybe I'll start thinking about the dress and the guests and the venue. It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have - if I go with jeans and t-shirt options, then maybe it wouldn't be quite right. I haven't decided on anything yet."

Despite a fearsome reputation, Keira claims Karl is a "nice man" and enjoys likes the work she has done with Chanel as she is allowed to pout: "He really is such a nice man, when you're shooting with him, he just sits there holding your hand. Working on Chanel campaign is so different to working on a huge film with Chanel I'm told to pout all I want!"
