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.

Karl Lagerfeld Loved Keira Knightley’s Unpretentious Wedding

Keira Knightley and Karl LagerfeldKeira Knightley had the "least pretentious wedding ever," according to Karl Lagerfeld.

The British actress married rocker James Righton in an intimate ceremony in the South of France last month, and Chanel's creative director felt the low-key nuptials were very tasteful. The 79-year-old designer spoke fondly of Keira - who is the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle scent - saying she looked chic in a short Chanel dress with flat ballet pumps for her big day.

"She had the least pretentious wedding ever. The whole thing was relaxed. I think it's perfect. After all, they lived together for quite a time. It's not as if she is a young girl of 18 who sees the husband for the first time. She is not a country girl," he said.

He also discussed working with Keira, revealing she was easy to get along with on set in her recent role as Coco Chanel in a film focusing on the opening of the designer's first store in the French seaside town of Deauville: "Keira was genius, no? I work well with her. Very easy. Keira has zero problem in her way of behaving and she knows everybody."

Lady Gaga Expected to Wear Donatella Versace at Wedding

Lady Gaga and Donatella VersaceLady Gaga is expecting to wear a Donatella Versace wedding dress. The pop star - who has been with Taylor Kinney since September 2011 - is reportedly keen on a design by the Italian, and asked her to create a black and gold silk gown with diamonds in the bodice.

"Gaga's spending millions on her wedding to Taylor Kinney and Donatella Versace's designing a typically over-the-top dress which on its own will cost thousands. She thinks white is cheesy and wants black and gold silk with all these crazy removable bits," a source told The Sun.

The extra "bits" include a removable skirt and train, which would then be converted into a separate gown for the ceremony. "The Edge of Glory" hitmaker and the Vampire Diaries actor have had trouble finding time for the wedding among the singer's heavy schedule but a break from recording and touring should allow a date to be set for the summer.

It's also reported they want to get married in New York to allow her grandmother Angelina Germanotta to attend.


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!

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."
