Vanessa Minnillo tied the knot with Nick Lachey Friday on Necker Island in the Caribbean, but the island atmosphere didn’t change the bride’s vision of that traditional wedding look — with a twist, of course. Minnillo, the new host of Wipeout, donned a two-piece Monique Lhuillier ensemble featuring an intricately embellished lace corset with rose and crystal detail, paired with a signature hand tufted skirt made of silk faille. The look was completed with a tailored bow belt at her waist and chapel length tulle veil. “I probably had half a dozen fittings and I was just so lost,” she tells PEOPLE of searching for the perfect gown. “I finally decided to ask Nick and said, ‘What do you want to see me in when you marry me and I become Mrs. Lachey?‘” she recounts. “I thought I would get some generic guys’ answer but he sat up in bed and told me he loved me with my hair down … and wanted me in something traditional but with a modern flair.” And so on Minnillo’s next trip to Lhuillier’s Los Angeles boutique, she knew the ‘one’ when she saw it. “I knew it [was the dress] because of the conversation I had with Nick. It just felt so right and I felt so beautiful in it.” The bride accessorized with a pair of diamond stud earrings Lachey gave her during their first year as a couple, plus Swarovski-encrusted Christian Louboutin slingbacks (she had a jeweled pair of white Havaianas flip-flops for late-night!) and a Judith Leiber clutch. For her makeup the bride went au naturel. “Two dear friends of mine that I met [while working at] MTV did my hair and makeup,” Minnillo says. “We went very natural because I wanted Nick to see me, not a bunch of makeup and big hair. It was such a tropical location but we wanted our wedding to have a timeless feel.” –Jennifer Garcia

You are right. Vanessa Minnillo is no Jessica Simpson. How wonderful. Vanessa is her own beautiful and intelligent person. Yes Nick did marry JS but we all make mistakes in life.

She looks gorgeous! Natural and flawless and super happy! Good luck to them both. They look great together.

She is nothing but a FILIPINO BARGIRL who befriended Jessica in order to get close to Nick. Now they are spending Jessica’s money as if they earned it rather than stole it. He will do the same thing to her withing the next few years and run off with the nanny.

I do not like her hair, it look like she put no effort into her hair or make up.

the only thing JS has over her is money…she’s a fat, flat @$$ed, buck toothed r*tard that sleeps with her father

I think they look great together..I agree that her hair might not look the best, but as has already been meniotned..Islands, heat, humidity..Besides, all that really matters is that Nick was pleased with her look..
