Okay, yes, Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise are divorcing. But you know what will live on forever? Katie's wedding dress, an off-the-shoulder custom creation from Giorgio Armani that featured ivory silk embellished with Valenciennes lace and Swarovski crystals. "Katie wanted a simple, elegant dress," Armani said back in 2006, when his atelier spent more than 350 hours bringing the design to life along with the bride's crinoline and tulle veil. "I wanted to make it modern but at the same time complement the sweetness and energy she conveys," he said. The designer also outfitted the rest of the bridal party, including Tom, in a navy blue made-to-measure tuxedo. For the reception, Katie changed into an asymmetrical Armani Privé champagne evening gown cut from silk organza and dotted with Swarovski crystals.
