25 Celebrity Bridesmaids and the Dresses They Wore Down the Aisle
Something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue may be the traditional bridal good luck charms— but a few extra-lucky brides have also walked down the aisle with something VIP.
That's right: Some brides get to party down at the bachelorette bash with Lauren Conrad, or get Lady Gaga to swap out her couture for a standard-issue (but very pretty) bridesmaid gown. Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker and Rihanna, stood as bridesmaids for their assistants while others, such as Lena Dunham and Gaga, supported their childhood besties on their Big Day. Read on to see which stars said, "I do," to bridesmaid duty.
The actress wore a pretty pastel dress to support her childhood friend Cindy McGee at her wedding in Italy. Dunst is currently engaged to her Fargo co-star Jesse Plemons, so it won't be too long until the friends reverse roles.
Robbie, a newlywed herself, served as bridesmaid at her friend Julia Koenig’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii. The Wolf of Wall Street actress rolled up to the ceremony in a seafoam green satin slip adorned with pastel pink flower print and lace embellishments.
Supermodel Miranda Kerr served as a bridesmaid in her brother's wedding, and she looked stunning in her white dress and flower crown.
Lala Anthony, Kelly Rowland, And Others
Ciara's bridesmaids included Matron of Honor Yolonda Fredrick-Thompson along with her besties Lala Anthony, Erica Ashe, Jamaica Craft, Hanna Isaksson, Kelly Rowland, Sabena Toor, and Russell Wilson's little sister Anna Wilson. The ladies all wore gorgeous black custom Michael Costello gowns for the occasion.
Dunham was a bridesmaid of longtime friend Audrey Gelman and each member of the bridal party personalized their J.Crew skirts with flowers, sequins, cute, colorful graphics, and their monograms.
The singer stood by childhood friend Britany Maack while she said “I do,” performing all the regular duties of a maid of honor, like holding Maack's train at the Pennsylvania wedding.
Georgia May Jagger
Jagger and sister Elizabeth both were there for their mom, Jerry Hall as bridesmaids at her London wedding ceremony, decked out in architectural, silky sheaths with a tulip hem with dainty bow detail in the back.
For the wedding of her pals designer Kara Elkin and photographer Nick Walker, the Scream Queens star donned a stunning ivory bridesmaid gown and carried a bouquet of white flowers.
The hotel heiress carried a bouquet of white blooms and wore a flowing, robin's egg blue gown to younger sister Nicky Hilton's July 10th, 2015 wedding to England-based banker James Rothshchild at Kensignton Palace in London. "So happy that my sister found the man of her dreams," Paris captioned in a sweet Instagram snap of the happy couple. "Once in awhile, right in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale."
Paris and Nicky Hilton
Not one, but two Hilton sisters reported for bridesmaid duty over the 2015 Memorial Day weekend. Nicky (standing behind the bride) and Paris Hilton (standing to the left of the bride) donned pale pink gowns with plunging necklines for their cousin Brooke Brinson's wedding to Thayer Wiederhorn in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.
Then bride-to-be Lauren Conrad put her own wedding plans on hold for her friends Maura McManus and David Oehm's big day. Wearing a neutral gown, Conrad accessorized with a mini quilted Chanel bag, a gilded ID plate necklace, and oversized tortoisehell shades, for the sun-soaked nuptials in Ojai, Calif.

Sarah Jessica Parker

It's a good thing Josh Schwartz has keen ears.
