9 celebs who wore coloured wedding dresses on their wedding day
Spoiler alert – one celeb is on here TWICE.
Getting married doesn’t necessarily mean wearing a white dress, and there are plenty of celebrities who have rocked a differently-coloured gown. Here are some of the best and most famous cases made for wearing a non-white dress.
Kat Von D
Let’s start with the most recent and by far most over-the-top dress on this list, shall we? Goth queen Kat Von D looked eerie and beautiful in a red dress and horns by Majesty Black in her wedding to musician Leafar Seyer.
Keira Knightley married James Righton in a tiny 12-person ceremony in the south of France in 2013, wearing a pale pink tulle Chanel dress she had had since 2008. However, full disclosure: she also had a custom-made £50,000 Valentino dress for a secret second ceremony.
How cute did Anne Hathaway look in this subtle pink Valentino number for her 2012 wedding to Adam Schulman?
Jessica Biel wore an iconic pink Giambattista Valli dress for her wedding to Justin Timberlake in 2012.
Sarah Jessica Parker
The fashion iconoclast herself wore a simple black dress by Morgane Le Fay to her wedding to Matthew Broderick in 1997, later admitting she was simply too embarrassed to shop for a real wedding dress.
Portia de Rossi
Portia de Rossi’s stunning backless Zac Posen gown with a pale pink tulle skirt was ground-breaking in 2008 – as was her marriage to TV host Ellen Degeneres.
Gwen Stefani loves John Galliano – in fact, he earned a shout-out in her hit song Rich Girl – and she wore this pink number by the controversial designer in 2002 to marry her now ex-husband Gavin Rossdale.
Pop punk princess Avril Lavigne wore a black Monique Lhuillier gown to her wedding to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger in 2013.
The stunning, legendary actress wore yellow and a crown of flowers to her first wedding to lifelong love Richard Burton in 1964.
Elizabeth Taylor (again)
The couple divorced in 1974 and re-married 16 months later in Botswana. Elizabeth wore a tie-dye Gina Fratini-designed rainbow-coloured dress, embroidered with tiny feathers. Unfortunately, this marriage didn’t last either – they divorced again in 1976.
