Marie Osmond's Wedding Dress: Then and Now

When Marie Osmond remarried first husband Stephen Craig on Wednesday, it wasn’t hard to find her something old: she simply reused her original wedding dress. The singing star pulled the Ret Turner gown — long-sleeved with a full skirt (so Catherine Middleton!) — out of her archives, updating it with a simpler veil and chunky pearls. The move wasn’t her original plan — a dress she’d had specially designed for the occasion wasn’t “right,” she tells ET — but it worked out perfectly. “I was cleaning out my garage and all of a sudden this box showed up in this pile of stuff … and it was this dress and it was five days ago. I’m not kidding,” she says. “I can’t breathe, but I’m in it.” Turner, a renowned Hollywood costume designer, actually clothed Osmond in her earlier years while he was working on Donny and Marie in 1977. An Emmy winner several times over, he also served as costume designer on programs like The Sonny and Cher Show and Mama’s Family, and won the Costume Designers’ Guild Award for lifetime achievement — presented by Osmond — in 2002. While Osmond didn’t end up requiring a wardrobe change for her private Las Vegas nuptials, groom Craig, for his part, did swap tuxes; when the couple first married in 1982, he wore white. –Kate Hogan

i recently saw marie on jay leno, she is so botoxed she can barely move her face its ridiculous, Marie lay off the botox and fillers you are drop dead gorgeous and dont need to look stiff and waxy, so what if you have a few wrinkles your 50 for gods sake be more natural! same with Donny his face doesnt move either…..

Don’t know too much about the dress, but she looks better now than she did back then. MpC

I think she looks better in it now since she has some curves.

Jess on

She looks even prettier now than back then, and a lot more relaxed and confident.

I wish Marie all the happiness in the world. However, this reminds me way too much of my own situation when 25 years ago my (now) ex-husband was cheating on me and then tried to get come into my life 20 years later, only to find out how broke he was (i.e. bankruptcy and child support payments). Proudly, I never fell for it. I hope Marie doesn’t get hurt.
