As for the wedding season – which should be in 2022 a record year due to the postponement of the pandemic – Hollywood luminaries in their happiest moments continue to provide style inspiration beyond the red carpet.

For her wedding in the south of France last July, Issa Rae looked Renowned bridal designer Vera Wang for custom swoon-worthy dresses for her ceremony and reception, as did Ariana Grande for an elegant column dress for a wedding at home last May. Hollywood Scion Billie Lourd walked down the aisle last year in a custom off-the-shoulder Rodarte and later sparkled in a beaded and fringed mini, inspired by her late grandmother Debbie Reynolds.

Last January, actress Danielle Brooks (Orange is the new black; off broadway The purple color) also doubled down on her look, reveling in a personalized Christian Siriano lace corset dress for the photo reveal and reception, then wearing a flower-embroidered illusion tailoring by Nigerian-British designer Gbemi Okunlola of Alonuko for the ceremony.

Paris Hilton pulled out all the stops last November with four wedding looks: an off-the-shoulder first dance dress by Galia Lahav, a sparkling Pamella Roland cape ensemble for dinner; complemented by a floral ball gown and an exuberant dance dress by Oscar de la Renta. Freida Pinto, meanwhile, looked like a dream in an embroidered dress, ruffled and affordable price dress from British company Needle & Thread on her wedding day in 2020.
