Natalie Portman and Benjamin Millepied Secretly Married?


Natalie Portman set the blogsphere abuzz Sunday night at the annual Academy Awards when she walked the red carpet with her beau Benjamin Millepied wearing -- a wedding band set?! It looks like the star has secretly tied the knot, since Millepied was also spotted wearing a wedding band, reports Us magazine.

The star, who won an Oscar at last year's Academy Awards for her striking performance in Black Swan, wore a stunning red vintage Dior gown. But what really stole the show was that second band on her ring finger.

Later, Perez Hilton confirmed the marriage in a statement from jeweler Jaime Wolf who said, "I designed the rings worn by Benjamin Millepied and Natalie Portman. They were made with recycled platinum and conflict free diamonds."

We know she's a pretty private star, but we have to admit, we're really hoping we get at least one shot of her wearing (what was no doubt) a gorgeous wedding gown.

Penelope Cruz in Georgio Armani


Penelope Cruz is always a red carpet favorite because she just knows how to mix sex appeal while looking every bit the lady. Tonight she wore a custom made Georgio Armani gown in the prettiest lavender with a romantic (and subtly sexy) off the shoulder neckline.  If you are loving this look (and honestly it's hard not to) try this Monique Lhuillier gown with the same illusion off the shoulder look.

Viola Davis in Vera Wang


We always love to see some color on the red carpets and one of favorite colors of the season is emerald green that is why we fell in love with Viola Davis' sexy Vera Wang gown. The low dip in her strapless gown showed just the right amount of cleavage (and the sparkling details along the neckline helps to highlight those assets) but the clean silhouette kept it classy.  Looking for a similar cleavage baring dip for your wedding gown?  Reem Acra stunning dress (with illusion neckline) will keep you looking sexy and elegant on your wedding day.

Angelina Jolie in Atelier Versace


While Angelina doesn't often stray from her black red carpet looks, she always knows how to wow. This time her wow factor was the thigh high slit that allowed her shapely leg to pop out of that rich velvet gown. The key to a super high slit is to keep the rest of the dress classic. For you brides--Reem Acra's stunning wedding gown does just that.

Jessica Chastain in McQueen


Jessica Chastain (nominee for best supporting actress for "The Help") looked amazing in her beautifully embroidered McQueen gown.  The intricate gold design on a black A-line base was one of our favorite looks from the red carpets.  If you are looking for a gown with gorgeous embroidering and details look no further than this stunning number from Marchesa.

Fashion Trend at the Oscars: Berenice Bejo and Shailene Woodley in Long Sleeves


Berenice Bejo (nominiee for Best Supporting Actress for "The Artist") and Shailene Woodley (from "The Descendants") both proved that you can still look hot even when covered up. Bejo wore beautiful lace gown by Elie Saab, but the dress was anything but conservative. Bejo added her own personal style with a deep V neckline and with a hint of mint green in the color. Want this look on your wedding day? Elizabeth Fillmore's lace sleeved gown has all the touch of elegance (without the cleavage bearing low dip). Shailene Woodley looked classic in her Valentino gown. Going against the trend of her young peers, Shailene opted for a more modest style (that still looked young and playful on her!). Rosa Clara had beautiful long sleeve gowns at her runway shows in Barcelona.

Fashion Trend at the Oscars: Michelle Williams and Tina Fey in Peplum



Peplum gowns (slim dresses with a ruffle overskirt over the waist) were all the rage on the fashion runways and now the red carpets at the Oscars!  Tina Fey looked utterly elegant in her custom made Carolina Herrera gown and Michelle Williams (nominee for Best Actress for "My Week with Marilyn" wowed in her red Louis Vuitton stunner (cinched nicely at the waist with a pretty bow brooch).  Love the peplum trend Badgley Mischka and Vera Wang both had similiar styles come down their runways this season.

New York Fashion Week Roundup!

New York's Fall 2012 Fashion Week has just wrapped up! And while there were tons of beautiful designs coming down the runway, we looked for bridal-esque gowns from some of our favorite wedding dress designers. Check out our fave gorgeous dresses below (think you'll be seeing a version of these at bridal fashion week?)

Frothy white creations from Marchesa practically already looked liked wedding dresses.


Gorgeous gowns from Oscar de la Renta got us thinking these would be perfect in white (or leave them in color for a daring bridal look!)


These dresses from Lela Rose were classically chic and streamlined (we especially think that middle gown would be perfect in cream).


We already love the modern, sleek wedding dresses that Theia makes, and these ready-to-wear gowns are no different. The shimmery dress on the far right would be perfect for the fashionista bride as a "wow" reception dress.


OK, we'll admit, not all of the gowns below are very "bridal," but we just couldn't resist posting a few beauties from our other favorite designers. Which collection do you like best? Below: Ralph Lauren.

Carolina Herrera wows us in painted silks.


Jason Wu, always elegant.

Barbie Has a Royal Wedding


Just in time for the royal one year anniversary, Mattel will release a commemorative royal wedding Barbie doll of both Kate Middleton and Prince William, reports MSNBC.

The dolls, which admittedly look more like Barbie and Ken than Catherine and William, have authentic outfits. Barbie Kate wears a floor-length, long-sleeved, ivory taffeta gown trimmed with lace and faux pearl buttons. It's not exactly McQueen, but it's a pretty close miniature version.

Prince William's look-alike doll of course is a red uniform decorated with a royal blush sash, metallic cummerbund and golden buttons.

The dolls will be available for purchase in April, as a collector's edition for $100 on These aren't the first royal wedding dolls, but they are the first dolls made by Mattel. Mattel also makes bride and groom replicas of Edward and Bella, from the Twilight series.

Is Sienna Miller Engaged?


Actress and mom-to-be Sienna Miller flashed some pretty awesome bling during a recent night out in London, and now the blogosphere is abuzz with rumors of engagement, reports ABC News.

The actress, who is known for being private about her personal life, is expecting her first child with her boyfriend, Tom Sturridge, whom she's been dating for about a year. The couple has not confirmed the engagement, but with a ring like that, it's rough not to notice. Miller's sister, Savannah Miller, tweeted recently that she was "THRILLED," which could have been an allusion to her sister's big pregnancy news, or her engagement -- or both.

Miller, 30, previously was known for her off-again-on-again affair with Jude Law, who she dated for almost seven years before splitting -- seemingly for good -- in February of 2011. Miller got together with Sturridge, 26, shortly after. Life & Style magazine also reported that the actress got engaged last month, during a Christmastime trip to Paris.
