    According to various statutes in France, at least one of the parties has to have resided in France for at least 40 days prior to the wedding. The gossip website spoke to the French Embassy in Washington D.C. to get the scoop: "All marriages must be performed by a French civil authority before any religious ceremony takes place. The mayor can authorize the deputy mayor or a city councilor to perform the ceremony in the town in which one of the parties to be married has resided for at least 40 days preceding the marriage. These requirements can not be waived."

    In his usual nonchalant manner, Ford waved his wedding ring before explaining his recent nuptials. "I lost so many friends in college - I would say more than half of my closest friends," he said. "Richard, my partner of 27 years, had also gone through something also quite tough in his life. We are now married which is nice. I know that was just made legal in the UK which is great; we were married in the States."

    It's a good thing they look smashing in black and white - supermodel Chanel Iman is reportedly engaged to rapper A$AP Rocky!

    The stylish couple have been dating since early 2013, but, like their rumored engagement, have kept their relationship relatively under wraps. While sources tell Page Six that the former Victoria's Secret Angel happily accepted her man's proposal, the high-profile couple has neither confirmed nor denied the news of their betrothal.

    Personally, we think the couple could say "I do" in their red carpet duds from the amFar gala this past February (pictured above). The white sheath fits Iman like a dream (plus, from the look of her Instagram, she wears white dresses very well), and A$AP Rocky's outfit is just tailored enough but still offers up some of his signature swag (he has, after all, been featured in Vogue

    Reportedly, the high-profile couple will spend approximately $125,000 on each of their 200 guests according to a source that told Grazia UK reports StyleCaster. In case you didn't want to do the math yourself, that comes out to a total of 25 million (yeah, we gasped, too) on the guests alone. Nevermind the lavish, hand-delivered wedding invitations, which reportedly cost $1,000. "Kim and Kanye wanted the invites to be as lavish as possible, and commissioned a couture designer to create gold silk boxes containing a photo album of their fairytale romance and a silk invite etched in real gold leaf with a clasp of natural pearls," the source says.

    We've said it before and we'll say it again: Beyoncé and Jay Z are the ultimate power couple. Aside from killing it in their respective music careers (Queen Bey/Sasha Fierce/Mrs. Carter/Yoncé and Hova would be more than enough on their own) together as a family (could Blue Ivy be any cuter?) and collaborators (Bonnie and Clyde foreva) magic happens. April 4th marks the sixth wedding anniversary of this powerful union. From when the relationship rumors began thanks to their hit "'03 Bonnie and Clyde" to their secret nuptials in 2008, for which the couple flew in 70,000 white orchids from Thailand, and most recently, 2013's steamy smash "Drunk in Love," the very private couple has been running the world, together, for more than ten years.

    To celebrate the anniversary of their big day, we decided to scour the couple's personal photos online for our favorites. Whether it's a picture of them riding off into the night on a motorcycle after their New Year's party or a
