What's Hot Now
Since her custom Carolina Herrera wedding gown had lots of breathtaking embellishment (and was plenty attention-getting on its own), Jessica Simpson decided to stick to understated classics when it came to her bridal jewelry.
“My dress had a lot of tulle so I didn’t want anything to get caught,” says Simpson, who worked with longtime stylist and bridesmaid Nicole Chavez to put together her wedding day look. “I just wanted simple.”

Here come the bridesmaids, all dressed in … well, every designer you can imagine!
For Jessica Simpson‘s romantic July 5 wedding to Eric Johnson, the bride pulled out all the stops to outfit her — wait for it — 12 bridesmaids. And that’s not including her two maids of honor: her mom, Tina and her sister, Ashlee.
Jessica Simpson‘s incredibly romantic wedding was this weekend — and once we stopped talking about the dress, the veil, the shoes and her very fancy wedding party, we (of course) had to discuss that hair.

Designer Carolina Herrera reveals in PEOPLE’s exclusive video that she also drew inspiration from the famed portrait of Empress Elisabeth “Sissi” of Austria painted by Franz Zaver Winterhalter in 1865.
“It reminds me of the way I want you to look,” Herrera told Simpson during her dress fitting at the designer’s New York City atelier June 11. “You told me before you wanted to be very regal. I thought this is fantastic for the whole idea.”
“I love that you’re inspired by a painting,” Simpson said. “It makes me feel special.”
She’s not the only one who felt that way: Simpson’s 2-year-old daughter, Maxwell, also wore Carolina Herrera for the family’s big day.
Said the proud mom of her mini-me, who participated in the wedding: “She’s going to feel like a princess.”

For her nuptials to Eric Johnson on July 5, Jessica Simpson didn’t opt for a slinky silhouette to show off her incredible post-baby body. Instead Simpson, who turns 34 on July 10, teamed up with fashion icon Carolina Herrera to create a sumptuous champagne and gold strapless multi-layer tulle gown.
