Actresses Knightley and Hathaway are joined on the coveted list by fellow stars Drew Barrymore and Jessica Biel.
Pop culture and fashion magazine Vanity Fair, known for its annual best-dressed list, has just unveiled its list of the ten best-dressed brides in its latest June edition. Although it featured a cross-section from the worlds of fashion, media and show business, the list was expectedly filled with more movie actresses.
Although she chose a recycled years-old knee-length dress over a new ball gown for her wedding dress, Keira Knightley still managed to make it to the list. Her understated bridal ensemble of a tweed jacket over the simple dress, matched with flats and sunglasses makes for an unconventional choice. In contrast, Anne Hathaway went for a gauzy off-shoulder Valentino wedding gown complete with lace veil and train that seemed to have been taken off "Princess Diaries".
Like Hathaway, Drew Barrymore also wore a big name designer's creation to her nuptials, a muslin-and-organza Chanel gown with matching cascading train designed by Karl Lagerfeld. For her wedding to pop/R'n'B superstar Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel opted for a pale-pink Giambattista Valli custom-made creation.
The rest of the best-dressed brides list include women who married celebrities: literary agent Felicity Blunt who wed actor Stanley Tucci, PR maven Amanda Sheppard who got married to British rocker Bryan Ferry and yoga instructor Hilaria Thomas who settled down with actor Alec Baldwin. Completing the ten brides are models Caroline Trentini and Jacquetta Wheeler and Archduchess of Austria Adelaide Drape-Frisch.
