Kate Middleton’s Wedding Hair and Make Up Details

From instyle.com

We reported last week that Kate Middleton would be doing her own makeup after taking lessons with expert Arabella Preston—and the results were absolutely stunning. Middleton went for a softly smoky eye, rimming her eyes in black liner and brushing her lids with a dove gray shadow. A rosy cheek and nude pink gloss finished the look. (Word has it the makeup may have been Bobbi Brown.) As expected, she also wore her hair down in long, tumbling waves, a style that was courtesy of her longtime stylist James Pryce of the Richard Ward salon in London, while associates from the salon styled the bridal party. “Catherine’s bridal look is called the ‘Demi Chignon’—an updo style which combines a classic bridal look with a regal, couture finish,” the salon said in a statement. “The focus of the style was Catherine’s unique and individual halo style tiara, set just back from the hairline, which determined the finished look.” According to Elle UK, Pryce and Middleton spent four months and created multiple mood boards to perfect the Demi Chignon. We’re absolutely delighted with the final result—but what do you think of Kate’s hair and makeup?

Van Cleef & Arpels Magnolia Ring

You might think double finger rings are the sole domain of edgy jewelry designers. Not so. Van Cleef & Arpels, the fanciest French firm in the world, has been whipping them up for over ten years. Of course they do it in their own elegant way. Just check out this hothouse flower featuring 15.26-carats of rubies and 2.5-carats of emeralds Mystery Set. With a double finger ring like this, I could be both classy and cool.

Carrie’s Big Day

This we got to see- Carrie Underwood’s dream wedding came to life. However, only People magazine US has the exclusivity rights with the photos and it hasn’t been released yet.

But here are some of the things we know from Carrie’s wedding look:

Carrie wore a 40 carat white gold gorgeous tiara during the ceremony (a gift from husband Mike Fisher). Made by her favorite jewelry designer Jonathan Arndt who also designed Carrie’s 12 carat engagement ring and the couple’s wedding bands.

Aside from the jewelries, Carrie made sure that details for her wedding would be sparkly, So for her shoes, she donned the “Avalon” heels by  Stuart Weitzman,  which she had custom-designed in Pink Swarovski crystal to match her wedding colors.
She wore an elegant, custom-made Chantilly lace gown by designer Monique Lhuiller. Monique also made the bridemaids’ dresses as well as Carrie’s second frock  for the reception party.

Carrie and Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher exchanged vows last July 10 at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation, Georgia.

I’ll try to find some more photos and will post as soon as I can.
