The bride wore Armani. Katie Holmes married Tom Cruise in an off-the-shoulder ivory silk gown that was custom-made by the Italian designer. The dress accentuated the actress's slim form, hugging her torso and hips before flaring out into a train. The couture garment was painstakingly adorned with layers of lace and Swarovski-crystal embroidery. (Little Suri wore an Armani-designed dress inspired by her mother's, giving the 7-month-old an early taste for couture.) The fabulously attired congregation included Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Jim Carrey, Jenny McCarthy, Will Smith, Jada Pinkett Smith, Victoria Beckham and Brooke Shields.

Katie wore a simple, summery outfit on her first day as Tom’s fiancaee. Cruise proposed early in the morning while the couple dined in the Eiffel Tower’s Jules Verne restaurant. Needless to say, the throngs waiting outside the Marseilles premiere of War of the Worlds later that day were more interested in Katie’s engagement ring than they were in her fuchsia Marc Jacobs frock.
Another city, another premiere-and another cute dress. This time Holmes wore a sky blue Christian Dior by John Galliano frock with metallic heels. She was in New York City for a screening of WotW.
