Whitney Port Picks Her Fave Wedding Dresses, From the See-Through Gown to a White Eyelet Bikini?!

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!

Gorgeous girl, gorgeous engagement ring — it stands to reason that Jamie Chung is going to have a gorgeous wedding gown too. Since announcing her engagement to star Brian Greenberg, Chung’s been at the top of our “stylish brides-to-be” list — we can’t wait to see what she wears. Though she told us at Bridal Fashion Week that the big day won’t be until next year (“We’re still trying to lock down the venue and the date,” she shared), she was excited to have a look at Spring 2015 dresses — especially since she got a personal look at Monique Lhuillier’s collection before the designer’s show.

We caught up with her at the Marchesa show, where she told us she’d just been to the Lhuillier’s atelier to see the designs. “Just yesterday I got to have a private sneak peek into Monique Lhuillier’s spring collection,” she said. “It’s kind of stepping into a different world.” And she shared her photo diary from that day with InStyle.com, from her bagel breakfast to her front row seat at the Marchesa collection.

Click through to see all the lovely photos from her dreamy bridal week! We totally relate to Chung when she says the whole thing is a bit surreal. “I was never that girl to think of the big day or anything like that, so it’s kind of weird,” she tells PEOPLE. “It’s really hitting home, like, Oh man this is really going to happen.”

Which dress are you loving for Chung? Is that your dream day too? Tell us in the comments!

And the Neutrogena spokesmodel dished on everything from her bridal beauty vision to the purple hair trend and her character Juliette Barnes’s impressive closet.

Bridal Fashion Week for Spring 2015: All the Highlights (and So Many Swoon-Worthy Dresses!)

Apr/16/2014 at 04:08 PM ET

We love all Fashion Weeks around here, but we have a special place in our heart for Bridal Fashion Week. The gowns! The gossamer! The gloriously romantic silhouettes! We sent one of our two resident brides-to-be, writer/reporter Michelle Ward, to some of the most beautiful shows in Manhattan, to report on what she saw (and, fine, maybe do a little gown research for herself). Below, check out her “diary” from the shows.

Let me start by saying, I’m getting married and I don’t have a dress yet. So to say being tasked with covering bridal week for Spring 2015 is like being a kid in a candy store is an understatement. I was dying to go. Did I mention my wedding is in spring 2015? Even better.

Now, I won’t bore you with the contents of the novel-like notebook I now own (I haven’t taken notes like that since my college finals), but I will share a few key trends I saw (think: off-the shoulder gowns, whimsical hair, embroidered veils and plenty of lace) as well as some of my favorite moments from the week. Here are some highlights:

What tops most girls to-do lists the minute they get engaged? Hitting the nail salon for the perfect mani to match their new bling, of course. Jenny McCarthy, who just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg Wednesday, made sure her tips were freshly painted — though no nail art could distract us from that new mega-carat engagement ring sitting pretty on her left hand.

The View co-host shared her exciting news on air while showing off her sparkler to the other hosts. “It’s a yellow sapphire,” she said of the bauble, which looks to be 5-plus carats (if we had to guess) and is surrounded by a halo of diamonds. (Get an up-close look at the bauble — and her hot-pink Sally Hansen manicure — above.) Read More

With about a month to go before their showstopping Paris nuptials, there’s so much for Kim Kardashian and Kanye West to do. They’ve got to check on the cake, attend dress fittings, shop at every designer store along the way … the list goes on and on. So they did what any couple would do: Jetted in for a few days to follow up on the details. But because, of course, they’re not like just any couple, they did all of their errands in high style.
