“Dancing with the Stars” beauty Peta Murgatroyd is no stranger to theatrical looks or showing off her famously fit body. We can easily see her in the ornate, curve-hugging, ab-baring gown at left from Galia Lahav's haute couture collection. Should she decide to go a more traditional route, the exquisite lace gown at right by Val Stefani covers up cleavage while still baring a hint of skin with its faux crop-top bodice. Either way, fiancé Maksim Chmerkovskiy is sure to approve.
Dramatic mermaid gowns have long been the actress/producer’s favorite look, but we anticipate a fresh new direction for her trip down the aisle with José Antonio Bastón. At left, a plunging neckline adds edge to a classic, ladylike ball gown by Carolina Herrera that would look flawless on the star. The fitted lace A-line at right, also by Carolina Herrera, would flatter Longoria’s petite figure and features a removable overskirt for a statement silhouette.
The gorgeous reality star favors super-short hemlines on the red carpet, making a high-low skirt perfect for putting her flawless legs on display at her wedding to Corey Bohan. At left, a strapless gown with a corset bodice by Monique Lhuillier gives off a young, sexy vibe without compromising elegance. Meanwhile, the nude romper overlaid with laser-cut lace on the right by Mark Zunino for Kleinfeld is a fun, edgy option for the actress and features a triple-layer overskirt of chiffon for a sweet bridal effect.
The former cast member and current judge of “Dancing with the Stars” can pull off just about any style, but we see her in a gown that combines timeless style with a modern twist. Here, a stunning column gown with sweeping train and laser-cut embroidery on the illusion bodice offers a playfully elegant look, while a narrow ball gown with hand-cut flower detailing on the illusion sleeves and neckline would look sweetly sophisticated when she walks down the aisle with Brooks Laich. Both gowns are by Angel Sanchez.
The British singer’s style is so eclectic, we can only imagine her in the edgiest of couture Vera Wang when she weds movie star Robert Pattinson. The strapless, high-low gown on the left with an intricate hand-embroidered passementiere and tiered skirt is a look distinctive enough for the star, while the exquisite ivory Chantilly-lace gown on the right has a sexy, boho-chic look perfect for a famous artist.
The star of stage, screen, and television favors elegant looks with distinctive necklines, and these two beautiful mermaid gowns offer both, making them lovely options for her wedding to Sam Esmail. The first features a sheer, sleeveless illusion bodice with an asymmetrical neckline adorned with lace appliqués. The second, a combination of three types of lace, has long sleeves and an all-over sheer effect. Both gowns are by Pronovias.
