Collaborating with QUIZ, leading occasion dresses retailer, we’ve selected the most popular new-fiancées and predicted what designs, colors, and styles they’ll go for when picking out their hen party outfit and all-important wedding dress…
Meghan Markle was the most Googled actress in 2016, probably due to her budding relationship with Prince Harry. However, it wasn’t until November 2017 that the couple announced their engagement — although, reportedly, they actually decided to marry a month earlier.
Markle is a dedicated supporter of the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women, so her style has always reflected a sense of class and sophistication.
Even before Prince Harry came onto the scene, Markle’s fashion choices revolved around monochrome palettes and demure cuts — think sweetheart necklines and knee-length dresses. Although there’s evidence of short, strapless numbers in the past, we’re sure Markle’s upcoming hen and wedding outfit choices will stay true to her future lifestyle.
Considering that Prince William and Kate Middleton’s respective stag and hen dos were relatively low key (he enjoyed a country retreat and she a small party at a friend’s house), it’s likely that this bride-to-be will enjoy the same level of rowdiness.
If Markle follows in the footsteps of her soon-to-be sister-in-law, we can imagine her ditching the dress for something chic, but casual. A playsuit with flats, a drop-waist dress with a light jacket or even ripped skinny jeans and an oversized sweatshirt will make sure the future royal stay comfy, stylish and modest on her final night of freedom with her hens.
The dress Markle will wear for the wedding is set to be a closely guarded secret. Since this is Markle’s second wedding, she possibly already has an idea of the style of dress she wants — apparently, some of her favorite bridal designers are Delphine Manivet and Christos Costarellos.
We can only speculate, but we predict that Markle’s dress will be slightly more revealing than Kate’s long-sleeved, covered-shoulders design. Perhaps she’ll opt for something similar to Princess Victoria of Sweden, who wore a sleeveless design and bare shoulders. Then again, she might want to fuse vintage and contemporary by going for a lace dress and a traditionally long train, complemented by a capped-shoulder design and deep cut back.
On 2 January 2018, Hilton posted a snap of her now-fiancé, Chris Zylka, proposing against a snowy backdrop in Aspen, Colorado. Worth around $300 million and currently wearing a 20-carat diamond engagement ring, we suspect Hilton will make sure it’s a lavish affair.
Way back when we first got to know Hilton, her style was all blonde hair, tiny dresses, and tinier dogs. Now 36 years old, Hilton has ditched the crop tops, rhinestones and princess-inspired trends and now opts for longer hemlines, tapered and more subtle colors — with her signature long blonde locks, of course.
The world is Hilton’s oyster when it comes to picking the perfect last-night-of-freedom event — and she’s probably planning on having several. Nowadays, she’s a popular DJ, so if one of the events involves music and partying, we can picture Hilton bringing back a touch of her past style to celebrate the occasion.
We’re thinking a slit-dress or short bodycon dress with stilettos to show off her famous long legs, customized with the finest statement-making jewelry. She might opt for a fringed or sequin design to add a splash of shimmer or create a quirkier silhouette — anything to make her stand out from the crowd.
There’s going to be no expense spared at this wedding and we’re sure the dress will be no different. Hilton has always worn dresses that highlight her tall, slender figure, so expect a dress that clings to her frame.
Recently, Paris has chosen to wear designs that cover her chest and emphasize her arms and legs. While we don’t suspect that she’ll walk down the aisle with her legs out, there’s a chance she’ll opt for a fitted, high-neck, sleeveless dress that’s speckled with jewels to keep her shimmering from vows to the after-party.
Love Island star and model, Olivia Buckland has been engaged to co-star, Alex Bowen, for more than a year. Bowen popped the question when the couple, who met on Love Island, were on holiday in New York. Since then, Buckland has been revealing little details about the wedding to help give fans an idea of what the big day will look like.
Buckland’s style is urban, feminine and modern. Her collection with QUIZ highlights staple pieces in contemporary women’s fashion, including metallic dresses and floral bodysuits, which has propelled her to fashion-icon status for many young women across the UK.
Buckland has already told the world where she’s heading to on her hen do — Mykonos. By her own admission, the event will begin wild and get tamer — so what does that mean for her hen do wardrobe?
Her style is very young and current. We imagine nights on the party island revolving around bold sequins, short hemlines, metallic palettes, bare-shoulder designs, asymmetric cuts, chokers, and strappy heels, while daytimes mean high-waisted shorts and cropped graphic tees — paired with chunky wedges for the pool parties.
According to reports, Buckland has passed on a designer wedding dress and gone for one that she describes as “really cute”. Buckland suits a range of styles, but for her wedding, we can see her opting for something that fuses traditionally bridal with contemporary urban fashion. She may choose lace or chiffon fabrics with a long train to bring a piece of the past into her design, while an off-the-shoulder cut and fishtail silhouette might be good options for her to modernize the look.
35-year-old actress, Kirsten Dunst, was engaged to her now-fiancé, 29-year-old Jesse Plemons, in early 2017. Calling it a “low-key” proposal, the couple is apparently enjoying the wedding planning process so far, but have yet to announce a date for the big day.
Dunst is famous for her range of looks. One day you can spot her in the style guides with baggy overalls and long-sleeve tees, the next she’ll be rocking straight-leg jeans and a tailored jacket, and in between those there’ll be award ceremonies that show her in anything from flapper-style dresses to floor-trailing gowns. Feminine, distinctive and slightly unconventional at times, Dunst’s wedding outfits are going to be hard to predict.
Dunst is keeping many of the details surrounding her wedding under wraps — including what she’s going to get up to for her hen party. However, Kirsten Dunst has enjoyed recent success in the wedding-themed film, Bachelorette, playing overachieving Regan. If she’s going to adopt this character’s style, expect her hen do/bachelorette party to show her wearing neutral tailored suits, fitted trench coats, sling-back heels, and figure-hugging dresses.
According to recent reports, Dunst’s wedding dress is being created by Rodarte designers, Kate and Laura Mulleavy. So, what will it look like? Rodarte’s Spring 2018 collection embraces tulle fabrics and pastel shades, with a stunning variety of embellishments from feathers and polka dots, to beads and pearls. But don’t be fooled by the romanticism and femininity of the collection, it was also peppered with feisty statements, including animal skin motifs and chunky metallic accessories.
We suspect that Dunst’s final choice will incorporate both the bold and the ethereal. Imagine a fluttering silhouette with statement-making adornments that project the idea of a futuristic fairy-tale.
A final “congratulations” to all our future brides — we look forward to seeing the wedding photos!
