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

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.

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

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.

Avril Lavigne

Pop punk princess Avril Lavigne wore a black Monique Lhuillier gown to her wedding to Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger in 2013.

Elizabeth Taylor

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.
