9 Celebrity Brides Who Didn't Wear Wedding Gowns
When you think of celebrity weddings, the first image that comes to mind—other than cake—is probably a bride in a gorgeous wedding gown. But plenty of celeb brides take a break from the norm and wear outfits that are a little more outside-the-box—from skirt suits, to tube socks, to jumpsuits. Get inspired by the unique brides in this roundup.
Olivia Palermo's wedding dress looks pretty standard, but she's actually wearing a pair of... shorts! Oh, and a cashmere sweater. The unusual outfit was designed by Carolina Herrera, and it might be our favorite on this list.
Marilyn Monroe was certainly thinking outside-the-box when she married baseball player Joe Dimaggio. The icon wore a chocolate brown pencil dress, with a matching jacket trimmed with white fur. Classic, chic, and very un-bridal.
OK, so Yoko Ono's wedding outfit is less of a gown and more of a "something you'd wear to play tennis in." The artist donned a super mod short dress during her 1969 Gibraltar wedding to John Lennon, pairing it with a felt hat, sneakers, and tube socks. She woke up like this. #Flawless
There are no words for how epic Emma Thompson's wedding dress was when she said "I do" to Kenneth Branagh in 1989. Let's just say it's a fascinating and fun product of its decade.
When Frank Sinatra and Mia Farrow wed in 1966, the 21-year-old bride decided to take a break from the norm and wore a double-breasted skirt suit. Here for it!
Solange wore multiple looks during her November 2014 wedding to Alan Ferguson, one of which was a bridal jumpsuit with a cape. Coolest. Bride. Ever. The minimalist ivory outfit was created by Stéphane Rolland, and is a true statement piece—especially paired with that red lip.
Looking for another bride who wore a suit on her wedding day? Enter Lauren Bacall, who wore a belted two-piece doeskin beige outfit during her 1945 wedding to Humphrey Bogart.
Instead of wearing a white wedding gown during her May 1971 nuptials, Mick Jagger's wife, Bianca, opted for something slightly more cool girl. A YSL Le Smoking jacket and a wide-brimmed hat, to be exact.
Old Hollywood icon Audrey Hepburn wore a decidedly un-bridal Givenchy dress to her 1969 wedding to Andrea Dotti, and chose to wear a headscarf instead of a veil. She looked more like she was going to Sunday brunch than a picnic, but hey, whatever works.
