Times When These Celebrity Wedding Guests Upstaged The Bride

Over the years these celebrity wedding guests have arrived wearing some questionable outfit choices. Here we get to take a look a some of the most memorable fashion statements they have dared to make.

Serena Williams

When it comes to wedding attire, a leopard print swimsuit isn’t the first option that most of us would choose. However, Serena must’ve been feeling at one with the big cats when getting ready for this wedding. Even though it looked as though this tennis star could be looking to take center stage, she managed to pull it off in a way only Serena can – you go, girl. Everyone seems overjoyed to have their celebrity friend there to party the night away.

Rihanna

This superstar singer is used to being in everyone’s eyes with her daring outfits most of us could only ever dream of wearing. When she was one of the bridesmaids at this wedding, the singer didn’t disappoint. Her pink number showed how even in formal wear, Rihanna can still rock a ball gown. Even with nine people surrounding her, Rihanna stands out in all the right ways. The perfect amount of sass in Rihanna’s face completes the picture – definitely one for the photo album.

Rebel Wilson

Rebel was anything but a rebel at her friend’s Australian wedding. The comedian brought the perfect amount of class to the ceremony as she arrived in the baby pink number. Her sparkly clutch bag completes the outfit, as well as leaving the other hand free for plenty of champagne. It seems as though Rebel has put her Bridesmaids days behind her in favor of being one of the well-behaved guests, with or without the tattoo (we will never know…)

Diane Kruger

When turning up to fashion designer Jason Wu’s lavish Mexican wedding, it can be hard to find an outfit that is both wedding appropriate and fashion forward. Diane Kruger easily managed to do both. Turning up in a navy blue sequined ball gown made sure all eyes were on this model. We wonder whether Jason had any say in the outfit? It’s no surprise he has his sunglasses on, when the sun catches that number it could be slightly blinding!

Alexa Chung

This British model has always been one step ahead of the game in the fashion world, so it’s no surprise that she pushed boundaries even further when invited to this wedding. The floor-length number brought Victorian fashion straight into the modern day. We have a feeling that is any of us tried to replicate the look we’d be in for a disappointment, but when Alexa turned up, she was turning everyone’s heads. This outfit brings old-fashioned class right up to date.

Florence Welch

If you’ve ever seen Florence and the Machine than you will know how the lead singer of the band has rocked boo hoo style since before it was even a thing. Teaming a coral jumpsuit with matching floral floor-length jacket is true wedding outfit goals. The backdrop of the English countryside teamed with the singer’s long red locks, and subtle accessories complete this daring outfit. With legs that go on for days, Florence can take effortless leaps to set fashion trends.

Princess Eugenie

After sporting a number of courageous wedding hats over the years (that no one will ever forget), Princess Eugenie decided to tone it down for Pippa Middleton’s big day, but boy did she pull it off?! The white sailor’s hat compliments the dark blue dress to complete this nautical themed outfit. Seven years on from the show-stopping headwear that Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice sported at the 2011 royal wedding, it appears as though she has made tremendous bounds in the fashion world.

Amanda Holden

For years, TV personality Amanda Holden has worn a number of eye-catching outfits both on screen and on the red carpet. When it was time for this famous face to attend her friend’s wedding it appeared as though she should have been wearing a watch as Amanda was running late. Amanda was a pink flash in her cut out tulip dress as she ran to the ceremony. Her matching accessories left us all envious as she looked set to steal the show.

Kate Moss

This supermodel has done it again. She stole the show with her floral green floor-length number – what more can we say? The oversized waist belt further emphasizes Kate’s famous figure. We’re not jealous at all, promise. While we feel as though this model could wear a trash bag and still look brilliant, her choice of dress for this wedding was always going to catch the eyes of everyone in the room. Oh Kate, please teach us your styling ways!

Keira Knightley

Keira Knightley’s brother, Caleb, took a considerable risk when asking his sister to be one of his future wife’s bridesmaids – would she somehow accidentally steal the show? While many of us have been die-hard fans of the actress for years, she fit right into the wedding party while rocking her mulberry dress. The outfit has the perfect amount of ‘poof’ that would leave anyone feeling like a princess. This party of three looks set to leave guests speechless.

Victoria Beckham

Considering Victoria is heavily pregnant with Harper when she attended the royal wedding, she didn’t let that hold her back from rocking this wedding outfit. In true Posh Spice style, the fashion designer was towering over the other guests in her skyscraper Louboutin heels – how?! Victoria stuck with the black theme as her modest dress skimmed her baby bump. It looks as though she was in talks with Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice on fascinator choices before heading to the big day, too.

Sarah Owen

When Sarah Owen turned up to her sister, Lily Allen’s wedding, all eyes were on her. The floral A-line dress showcased all the colors of spring, with the cut out adding the perfect amount of femininity to the outfit. Sarah finished off her outfit with a matching pale blue cardigan to compliment the dress perfectly. In a bold move, the vintage retailer slipped into some color popping orange block heels – a risk that definitely paid off for this big day.

KimYe

This celebrity power couple have always been at the forefront of fashion, especially as Kim has been keeping up with the latest trends for years. While Kanye is pulling his usual joyful face, Kim is rocking the show. They say not to wear white to a wedding, so Kim took that one step further and opted for an all-black number. The lace dress clings to the star’s famous figure, but she still brings her signature glam with the addition of a bling choker.

Paris Hilton

When it was time for sister, Nicky, to walk down the aisle in 2015, there was no one else other than her sister, Paris, that could fill the role of bridesmaid. This socialite turned businesswoman arrived at the ceremony in a stunning floor-length periwinkle blue gown as she posed for the obligatory wedding snaps. Paris also bought some bling with the addition of a sparkly belt. Paris still managed to kill it in front of the camera – jealous much?!

Britney Spears

It looks as though Paris may have had some inspiration for her bridesmaids dress as back in 2011, Britney showcased a similar number when she took the role as maid of honor at her friend’s wedding. Britney also had her own skinny bling belt to bring some glitz to the occasion. Britney has played the role of bride twice in the past, but this time she was joyful to be a bridesmaid as she supported Brett Miller on his big day.

Brooke Shields

Back in 2006 this actress was bringing velvet back when she turned up to Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes’ big day. The floor length piece was the perfect addition to their cold November wedding date – perhaps that explains the luscious fur jacket? With a sweeping updo, Brooke was looking nothing short of fabulous as she walked the paparazzi strewn path to the ceremony with her husband, Chris Henchy.

Chrissy Teigen

Who could be brave enough to sport black tassels on a salsa-inspired dress for a wedding? Chrissy Teigen, that’s who! The supermodel was one of the guests attending the ceremony in Miami when she had all eyes on her outfit. We hope there was plenty of dancing after the final “I dos” as Chrissy looks ready to throw some shapes on the dance floor. Her red lipstick effortlessly pulls the whole outfit together in ways we would never be able to achieve.

Gwyneth Paltrow

There always has to be a rule breaker at any big event. Whether it’s turning up late or not bringing any food, someone has to cause trouble! Back when Jay-Z and Beyoncé tied the knot in 2008 that job went to Gwyneth Paltrow. The actress took everyone by surprise by turning up to the ceremony in a white frock with a matching waterfall jacket. Even though she broke rule number one, Gwyneth looked absolutely fabulous, so we’re sure she was forgiven.

Princess Beatrice

One person that successfully took the 2011 royal wedding by storm was Princess Beatrice. Her fascinator was so memorable that she was the talk of the world. While it may not have been everyone’s first choice of outfit, the young princess had the interest of everyone when walking the red carpet to the ceremony. The nude color scheme of her Valentino outfit was the perfect choice for any big day. Plus, her confidence in her fascinator still leaves us in awe.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z

Luckily for this Hollywood power couple, it looks as though white was the color to go for at Solange’s wedding. It seems this singer has always known what looks good on her (which let’s face it, isn’t that everything?) as she chose a white bodycon dress for the occasion. Determined to stand up to her 6’2” husband, the superstar chose some sky-high heels to accompany the outfit. Jay-Z also looks dapper in his all-white suit and bow tie combination.

Eva Longoria

This Desperate Housewives star was given a brand new role to play in 2014 when she was a bridesmaid at her friend’s big day. The lilac off the shoulder number compliments her dark hair oh-so-well in ways we could only dream about. Dress on one side, hair on the other, and page boy ready and waiting with the adorable sign. It seems as though this actress can pull off multitasking at its finest as she makes sure the big day runs smoothly.

Lady Mary Charteris

Everything about this outfit screams yes. From the pink stripes to the sheer fabric, the black tassel bag to the biker heels – what more could you want? The whole outfit takes smart casual to a whole new level. This musician has always been seen rocking daring outfits that she still pulls off. If we tried to replicate the look, then we might be in for a shock, but Mary is able to pull this ‘just rolled out of bed look’ off fabulously.

Pippa Middleton

Four years before walking down the aisle herself, Pippa was the monochrome goddess at Thomas Straubenzee and Lady Melissa Percy’s wedding in 2014. Her black and white peplum dress showcases her slim figure perfectly. You can never go wrong with a monochrome color scheme which is probably why this socialite stuck to the theme when choosing her accessories. There must be a secret to royals and fascinators, but Pippa kept this addition a lot tamer than some of her relations.

Tina Fey

Sometimes less is more which is precisely what Tina Fey was able to prove when stepping out at Alec Baldwin’s wedding in 2012. The actress kept things casual with her dress choice as she opted for a gray and blue striped bodycon dress for the occasion. Have no fear; the actress brightened up the look with some subtle gold heels to bring some glam to the outfit. Her relaxed hairdo shows how casual can be done in all the right ways.

Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway

The Devil Wears Prada was a fabulous film that showcases many fashion-forward trends. So when the film’s co-stars Emily Blunt and Anne Hathaway were invited to Jessica Chastain’s Italian wedding, it is no surprise that we were greeted with some incredible outfit choices. The pair’s fuschia and magenta outfit choices brought all the color of summer to the international wedding destination. These two rocked the guest list with their bold dress choices in ways only celebrities can pull off.

Emma Roberts

Let’s be honest, we all wish we could have our celebrity best friends be our bridesmaids – but we’d have to actually HAVE a celebrity best friend for that – and we’re still on the lookout for someone to fill that position. However, we bet this bride was kicking herself after her bridesmaid, Emma Roberts, wore a bridesmaid gown that was even more expensive than her dress. Yep, Emma and her dress were designed and styled by Kara, while the other bridesmaids wore knockoffs. Ouch.

Kate Bosworth

Okay, Kate Bosworth has always been out girl crush – but how is this amount of beauty even allowed?! It’s just not fair. In 2008, this blonde beauty assisted her former assistant, Jacqui Lopez, down the aisle during her beachside wedding Down Under (oh, nothing special then). Although Kate was wearing an unusual black gown, she still looked as stunning as ever and definitely came close to upstaging the bride. Luckily, her simple updo contrasted the bride’s beach waves…so we guess they’re equal.

Taylor Swift

Oh, look what you made her do! Of course, we all love Tay-Tay, but her dress to her childhood friends wedding is bordering on bridal – and you know what they say, you should NEVER upstage the bride. Nevertheless, it seems as if T-Swizzle can’t be tamed, and she fancied wearing this full-length nude gown as the maid of honor at Britany Maack’s wedding. Although we can’t really stay mad at her because that dress is DI-VINE. You go girl.

Cara Delevingne

Cara Delevingne could wear a potato sack over her head and still look like a high-class model with a chic fashion sense. Yuh-huh, while she would pull it off, we would look like one of the potatoes inside of the sack – so it’s safe to say we’re a little jealous. Nevertheless, we can’t deny that Cara looked utterly breathtaking when she wore this off-white Chanel dress for her sister’s wedding. You rarely see bridesmaids in white, but Cara never plays by the rules.

Sarah Jessica Parker

No matter whether she is Carrie Bradshaw or herself, Sarah Jessica Parker has one heck of a wardrobe. Despite the fact that all of the bridesmaids at Melinda Relyea’s wedding were all wearing the same purple dress, it’s fair to say that Sarah stood out amongst them. Even the way she’s standing is so chic and sophisticated. The hand on the hip, the hair placement, the smile…everything is perfect. Can we just be her already? Please?

Brooklyn Decker

Brooklyn Decker makes her money (and we’re talking big bucks) on being pretty – and if that’s not #lifegoals, we really don’t know what is. However, we can’t imagine it can be easy to ask your longtime friend/model friend to be part of your bridal party because it can only end in disaster. Despite the identical dresses and the similar hairstyles, you could still pick out Brooklyn from the lineup from a mile away. Dang, she looks beautiful.

Pippa Middleton

Yep, Pippa is on the list AGAIN – because she is basically just perfect in every way. Although the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton made headlines across the world, and although we were all totally obsessed with Kate’s impeccable wedding gown – all eyes were on Pippa Middleton as she made her way to the church in a carriage (as you do). Her simple white dress caused a stir within every media outlet around the globe…and rightly so.

The Olsen Twins

The Olsen Twins are known for being some of the most stylish women in the celebrity world – which worked in their favor when they were asked to be two of eighteen bridesmaids for their friend, DJ Cassie Coane’s wedding. Instead of choosing bridesmaid dresses for them, Cassie asked her ladies in waiting to choose their own dresses. For some reason, one of them decided to wear a Kimono-style dress to the wedding – and we’re kind of digging it.

Rachel Bilson

Okay, we are LI-VING for this photograph. Of course, we’ll get onto Rachel Bilson in a moment – but we just need to take a moment to appreciate Gelareh Khalioun’s incredible wedding gown. Look at that! How? What? Where? Ugh, it’s just so perfect. However, it’s fair to say that Rachel is not far behind on the beauty-ometer, as her own plush pink bridesmaid dress is really something special. Her beautiful dress even has a train, for goodness’ sake.

Dianna Agron

On your wedding day, you want everything to be perfect. You want to look perfect, feel perfect, and you want your bridesmaids to look perfect – but not too perfect that they upstage you, am I right? Well, it seems as though Megan Mitchell didn’t get this memo before her wedding in September 2016, as her best friend, Dianna Agron, managed to upstage her (soz) while wearing simple blush slip dress. We’re not sure how she did it, but we want answers.

Alessandra Ambrosio and Isabeli Fontana

I mean, where do we even begin with this photo? When we get married, it’s fair to say that we WON’T be inviting all of our Victoria’s Secrets model friends – because, well, it should be obvious. Yet, this didn’t seem to be a problem for Ana Beatriz Barros. As a model herself, Ana felt perfectly comfortable in herself (good for you, lady) and her bridesmaids to put on a good show. Let’s be honest, Alessandra Ambrosio and Isabeli Fontana absolutely killed this look.

Rachel McAdams

Let’s be honest, Rachel McAdams looks beautiful wherever she goes. Yep, even when she was crying in The Notebook, she wasn’t ugly crying. Instead, she was crying sweet tears of cotton candy – because that’s the kind of gal she is. Because of this, she looked as radiant as ever when she attended her sister’s wedding in 2015. Although she rocked a simple blue halter bridesmaid dress, it still looked as if she was the star of the show.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga is known for wearing all kinds of weird and wacky outfits to public events. Although we’ve yet been able to rid the Meat Dress from our minds, it seems as though she took on another perspective when she chose her bridesmaid dress for her best friend’s wedding. Yep, in 2015, Gaga chose not to go full-Gaga when wearing this lilac halter dress that showed off her more feminine physique…and it’s safe to say that we absolutely love it.

Mila Kunis

Mila Kunis is the kind of woman who can pull anything off and look fabulous – and that’s exactly what she did for her brother’s wedding a few years ago. As a bridesmaid, she was expected to look extra special, but nobody expected this gorgeous dress to come out of the woodworks. Indeed, this knee-length pink strapless dress is something we would all want in our closet. However, there’s a fair chance we could NOT afford it. We’re just gonna cry now…

Rose Byrne

Rose Byrne is one of the most beautiful Aussies we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting in person. Oh, who are we kidding?! We just pretend that we’re besties. While rocking the bridesmaid role at her best friend’s wedding Down Under, Rose graced the whole wedding party with her beautiful lace dress. Well, you know what they say – simple yet effective – and that’s exactly what this dress is. As if the dress wasn’t gorgeous enough, just look at that hair!
