Apr/22/2014 at 11:30 AM ET

We bet you already have a few weddings marked down in your calendar this year, and even if you don’t, you can still get excited about all the celebrity weddings on the horizon. Bride-to-be Whitney Port has been busily planning her wedding and now she’s sharing her top dress picks from this year’s Bridal Fashion week. So, of course we had to round up some of her most head-turning — and skin-baring — selections.

“The idea of a beach wedding sounds so beautiful to me, so I loved this one,” the star tells Brides magazine of the two-piece Oscar de la Renta design (first above) featuring a white eyelet bikini and coordinating skirt. “I like that it’s very simple, but still delicate, and not the traditional wedding dress.”

Next up, a sleek Vera Wang gown, which is in line with her own wedding dress vision. “I’ve been toying with the idea of wearing a classic slip dress and this look is just simple and comfortable. You don’t have to worry about anything or the fuss of a big ball gown.” (This would be our pick for the star as well, who told PEOPLE, “I’ve always envisioned that Cindy Crawford beach slip kind of dress.”)

Port, who got engaged to fiancé Tim Rosenman last November, has also considered flashing some undergarments for her trek down the aisle (a look we’re curious if Kim Kardashian will go for.) “Another idea I considered was trying the see-through trend, where you can see the bra and panties underneath. I didn’t know if that was okay for a wedding, but this dress shows you can make the look tasteful,” Port tells the mag of the Houghton design above (We had to pixelate the model’s, er, naughty bits). “Plus, it features a lot of sequins and beading — I’m a sucker for anything metallic or sequined!”

Lastly, Port’s most traditional gown choice comes from designer Naeem Khan’s 2015 collection. “I’ve also been toying with the idea of wearing a veil, and this one makes me feel like I want one. It’s such a beautiful, intricate accessory, especially if you have a very simple dress.”

What do you think of Port’s picks? Are you a fan of the skin-baring wedding dress trends? Share your thoughts below!

Whitney Port Shows You How to Pull Off a 'Cali Casual' Look (Plus, Get the Hair to Match)

Apr/16/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

Maybe it’s all that Coachella style, but we have California style on the brain right now. So it’s perfect that Whitney Port is giving some fashion inspiration for a “Cali Casual” outfit.

In her latest Drab To Fab video with Joico, Port shares her dressing tips with viewers for a laid-back look that is perfect for this time of year.

“It’s dressed up in a really dressed down kind of way,” Port says of the perforated chambray collared top and matching snakeskin lounge pant (both from her Whitney Eve line), which she teams with an on-trend cuff. As for the glossy undone curls, you’ll have to watch the clip above to find out hairstylist Damien Carney’s secrets. (Hint: It involves a great dry shampoo you might want to add to your beauty arsenal.)

Port is no strange to the loose beachy wave, and she’s totally an air-dry type of girl. “I kind of wash it and let it air dry and let it down, with a slight side part,” Port told PEOPLE of her go-to hairstyle. “For more of a red carpet look it always varies on what I’m wearing, but recently I’ve been liking a sleek long straight pony and the wet look. Very simple.”

Headed to an Oscars Party? Whitney Port Will Get You Glam In No Time

Feb/21/2014 at 09:30 AM ET

Whitney Port has had plenty of experience translating her low-key Cali vibe into a full, glammed up red carpet look, which is why she’s perfect to introduce the second part of her “Drab to Fab” series with Joico. After giving a model an N.Y.C. look from top-to-toe in the first installment, Port and Joico artistic director Damien Carney make over another lucky model into an easygoing glamour girl.

“The Hollywood glam is one of my favorites, because I feel like everyone wants to look like that, but they’re not really sure how to do it,” Port says in the video. “It’s really important to know you can wear something simple and black, something you have in your wardrobe, but accessorize with a little bit more of glitz and glam.” She tops a faux leather peplum top with emerald earrings and a dressy shoe, though notes that it’s just as easy to do this look with jeans as it is the skirt she chose.

Whitney Port has all things bridal on the brain! The newly engaged designer is having a great time planning her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Tim Rosenman, and she’s spilling some secrets about her big day.

“It’s going to be destination,” Port told PEOPLE at a Wedding Paper Divas bridal luncheon Tuesday in her honor. “Since I’m from here and Tim is from New York, we thought it would make sense for everyone to just be on neutral ground.”

And while she seems to have plans in motion, including a tentative date, Port hasn’t spent her whole life obsessing about her “big day.” (She has a secret Pinterest board now for inspiration, but that’s about it.) “I wasn’t that girl. I knew I wanted to have a fun party but it wasn’t something I knew the day I got engaged, ‘This is exactly what I want,’ at all.”

One of the many things we love about the holidays: engagement season kicks off in full force. Starting things off right is Whitney Port whose sparkler on that finger may be only hours old — but she’s already got dresses on the brain.

“I think it obviously depends what the theme of the wedding is,” Port told PEOPLE (on the set of her new web series Drab To Fab) of hunting for her gown. “What comes to mind is something simple. I’ve always envisioned that Cindy Crawford beach slip kind of dress, but who knows. I feel like you never know until you actually plan it.”

One thing she does know: “I won’t be wearing a cupcake wedding dress. I won’t be wearing one of those princess, fairytale kind of dresses. That’s a no.”

And with her fashion background (she has her own line Whitney Eve), Port definitely plans to design her own dress. “I know what cut works for me,” she shared. “It’s something so personal. That will be a really fun process for me.”
