8 Bridesmaid Looks Inspired by Your Favorite A-Listers
Sure, we’ve seen our fair share of celebs lookin’ gorg while standing beside their bride BFFs… Hello, T. Swift, you’re always at the top of our list! But, these days we’ve been getting even more aisle style inspiration from the black-tie and cocktail options we’re seeing scene-stealing starlets like Anna Kendrick, Sarah Hyland, and Ashley Benson rocking at award show, movie premieres, and charity events.
We’ve rounded up some of the hautest Hollywood looks from the last month or so, and coupled them with bridesmaid styles from a few of our fave fashion houses. So, even if you’re not enlisting Carrie Underwood herself in your big day #girlsquad, you can make sure your tribe is decked out and dressed to impress.
Before Dianna Agron slayed as a bride herself last month, she took the part of dutiful maid super seriously. Donning a taupey-dusty rose gown as she beamed brilliantly by her bestie’s side, the former girl from Glee was straight-up #goals for bridesmaids everywhere. Looking to steal some of her sun kissed glow? We’d start with this Joanna August Newbury wrap dress in All Tomorrows Parties.
2. Anna Kendrick, Ashley Benson, Dakota Fanning and Nina Dobrev all made best-dressed lists at ELLE’s 23rd Annual Women in Hollywood Awards on October 24th, and we’re hardly surprised.
Anna killed it, wearing a siren-esque, V-necked cobalt gown by Gabriela Hearst. And while we adore her rich velvet vibes, especially as we coast through fall and into winter, we’re taking the more general ‘jewel tone’ tip to heart with a soft, chiffon look (in Lucy in the Sky) from Joanna August.
Ashley kept it simple with a black, midi-style Marc Jacobs that highlighted all of her tanned and toned assets. We’re ALWAYS fans of an all-black BFF brigade for the wedding day, and this slightly longer, column style (in Blackbird) from Joanna August nails Ash’s sophisticated look, especially with nuances like a cowl neck that bring even more class to the affair.
Dakota had us feeling all kinds of mellow in her Miu Miu, plunging neck shortie. The pleating on the skirt was super playful, with an overall shape that was ultra-flattering while also formal. This similarly sunny-yellow Mikaela dress (in Lemon) from Azazie is right out of D-doll’s playbook and a great pick for any of your younger bridesmaids!
Nina showed off in a signature blush Stella McCartney gown that had every Insta-fan eagerly tagging #aboutlastnight the morning after. From the subtle lace detail to the softness of the silhouette, the feminine finesse of this dress is a bridesmaid’s dream come true. We’re loving this Suzy Rose rendition from White Runway, featuring a festive frill hemline that’s quintessential formal.
Emma Roberts even inspires us when she’s just stepping out in NYC. We spotted this super sweet slate-blue/grey getup of hers on Insta last month and think it’s got bridesmaid potential written all over it. The muted pastel is everything we love in a chiffon confection, and the sleeves on this Joanna August option (in Silver Bells) offer the perfect bit of coverage for those breezier fall nights.
Sarah Hyland never ceases to amaze us with her posh and oh-so-poised fashion choices, and she didn’t disappoint when she accepted her Voice for Animals Award at a recent ASPCA event. The high neckline and autumnal hue of her dress has us dreaming of fall weddings, and we scouted a similar scoop-necked style in the Mariam by Azazie (in gold).
Always the flawless fashion icon, Carrie Underwood brought her A-game to the CMT Artists of the Year event in late October, turning it up in a printed gold and silver metallic mini with perfectly-placed cutouts. Bridesmaids take note, this is how you rock metallics on the aisle – and you can do it with this brand-new black and gold metallic cocktail choice from White Runway – coming soon (and that’s not even fast enough)!!
