Chelsea's jewel-encrusted belt, Hilary's mile-high hairstyle, Alicia's crystal headpiece -- there was no shortage of daring celebrity looks this summer. WeddingChannel.com breaks down some of the most memorable wedding day style to find out which ones are worth repeating.
Chelsea Clinton's Vera Wang Custom Dress
Hyped as the "wedding of the decade," Chelsea Clinton's wedding to Marc Mezvinsky didn't disappoint. Chelsea's custom Vera Wang gown, with raw-edged vertical ruffles and jewel-encrusted belt, proved to be worth the wait. Chelsea opted for classic style, accenting her gown with natural looking makeup, a sleek hairstyle, and a simple veil.
How to Get the Look: Chelsea's classic style is one that could easily work for a wide variety of brides. Try a full ball gown style dress and use timeless accessories, like pearls and small crystals to complete the look.
Alicia Keys' Jewel-Encrusted Headband
While saying "I do" to producer Swizz Beatz at a villa on the Mediterranean Sea, Alicia Keys also wore a custom designed Vera Wang gown. Though the gown was gorgeous -- it was her hair accessory that really caught our attention. Alicia donned a bejeweled headband that included draped strands of crystals that hung down on her forehead.
How to Get the Look: Headbands are a great way to get a daring look with a slight edge of hippie chic. This look works best at a summer or spring wedding where hair can be left long and loose.
Hilary Duff's High Hairstyle
When Mike Comrie proposed to Hilary Duff with a 14-carat princess cut diamond ring, we had a feeling the wedding might be a little over the top. And thanks to the photos released, we know that it was. Though the ceremony and reception were elegant -- and extravagant -- Hilary's wedding day look was nothing short of something a Disney princess might wear. Her super-high hairstyle gave her a pretty and fresh look while her classic earrings and bracelet completed her "girl next door" style.
How to Get the Look: While Hilary's high hairstyle worked for her, we think a more toned down, low, undone bun could be a great way to make this more universal. With a lower hairstyle, the veil can be worn on top for an elegant, finished look.
Anna Paquin's 50-Carat Diamond Necklace
For her sunset ceremony to co-star Stephen Moyer, Anna Paquin reportedly donned a halter neck gown and 50 carats of round diamonds in a necklace from celebrity jeweler, Neil Lane. To balance out the eye-catching bling, Anna opted for a relatively simple dress, guests say, ensuring that her necklace was the main attraction.
How to Get the Look: It's all right to go over the top with extra beading and crystals (or lots of diamonds!) as long as the rest of the look stays relatively simple. Pick a gown without much embellishment and choose chandelier earrings, thick bracelets, and a cocktail ring to complete the look.
Coco Rocha's Zac Posen Original Dress
She's graced just about every catwalk in the world, so it was no surprise that "It" designer Zac Posen would want to design for supermodel Coco Rocha's wedding to James Conran. While noted as an "upside-down martini glass" on one blog, the gown's sleek look up top that opened into a full tulle trumpet style skirt was nothing short of haute couture perfection. Coco went with a vintage hairstyle of sleek curls and kept her accessories to a minimum -- both good choices since the gown was such a stunner.
How to Get the Look: This style is all about contrasting relatively simple makeup and hair with the "wow" factor: a dramatic dress. Find a trumpet or mermaid style gown with heavy embellishments that start below the waist.
