Carey Mulligan makes a suit look epic, Lauren Conrad makes the case for wearing yellow to one of your pre-wedding parties, and Nikki Reed executes the princess look to perfection. Here, the red carpet bridal looks we couldn't get enough of this week.
Carey Mulligan at the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards: If you want to don a suit for your big day, take a cue from Carey Mulligan and her baby blue Marc Jacobs stunner. The look is actually a great way to accentuate your curves and wear trousers, if they're one of your signatures: the long jacket is flattering to your upper half and cinches the waist at the perfect spot with its single button; the bustier gives the perfect flash of décolletage; the high-waist trousers lengthen your legs and their ankle-length shows off your shoes.
Lauren Conrad at the 6th Annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic: Looking for the perfect way to add some color to your pre-wedding party looks? Use this picture of Lauren Conrad in Saloni for inspiration! Her dress was refined and elegant, while still showing just the right amount of skin: perfect for your engagement party or bridal shower. Paired with shiny hair and minimal accessories, all eyes were on her natural beauty and that showstopping gown — exactly what any bride would want for such fun festivities.
Nikki Reed at the 22nd Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Awards: Few designers make more gorgeous bridal-perfect dresses than Monique Lhuillier. Case in point: Nikki Reed's strapless lace full-skirted number by the brand. Her floral print Lee Savage clutch and eye-catching silver Bionda Castana platform sandals injected flair and modernity to the quintessentially sweet ensemble: excellent ways to demonstrate your sartorial prowess at your rehearsal dinner. And such an impeccable look won't need much in the beauty department: Nikki's side-swept hair, dewy skin, and strong brows are just the choices the ensemble demands.
