Vanessa Williams Went for a Totally Different Look for Her Second Wedding to Jim Skrip
Weddings… so good you can’t have just one, right? Just ask Vanessa Williams, who took a second trip down the aisle on Memorial Day with her already-husband, Jim Skrip.
For the big day, the 53-year-old bride wore a gorgeous v-neck Pamella Roland dress with a pink sash, and her hair was pulled back in a romantic chignon — quite a different look from her OG wedding last year. For their 2015 nuptials, Williams wore two dresses designed by Carmen Marc Valvo: the first, an ivory skirt and top with a gold belt, and the second, a beautiful gown adorned with gold leather petals. She wore her hair middle-parted and super straight.
But that’s not the only difference. The first wedding was held in Skrip’s hometown of Buffalo, New York, and was seriously over-the-top — 400 guests were treated to Egyptian food, musical performances, and Diptyque Paris gift bags. This wedding, on the other hand, was an intimate celebration at Williams’ hometown church. “Officially wedded Catholic,” she wrote.
Actually, there was one special performance at this wedding and it was by Williams herself! The former Miss America got her stanky leg on and shared a video for the world to see.
Not your typical first dance, amiright?!
