We are sure that now these celebrities regret their fashionable choice, which spoiled an important celebration for them.
Emma Thompson, Celine Dion, Princess Diana
Have you ever thought what your wedding dress would be like with an unlimited budget? Well, it’s not harmful to dream, although it can even be useful to look at such things. If only to understand that yours was no worse, if not better.
We are used to focusing on the choice of celebrities, because they work with top stylists and have all the resources to choose a stunning image. And it is the wedding photos of A-list celebrities that turn out to be in the mudboard of ordinary girls when choosing a dress for the most important event in their lives. But even among them there are unsuccessful examples, which we are talking about today.
Let’s start with an outfit that we don’t associate with a wedding at all. In 1989, Emma Thompson appeared at the wedding with her first husband in a very unusual way. It was a mid-knee length dress with a full skirt and a top resembling a corset. And everything would be fine, but given the great sense of humor of the British actress, she just couldn’t help but add a little irony to the dress. Although the result was not very successful.
Pink and blue print combined with the shape of the dress and made the image one of the most ridiculous in the history of famous weddings. A hat with a veil and an ostrich feather in a truly British style added fuel to the fire.
Lady Mary Charteris
Lady Mary Charteris and Robbie Furze at their own wedding, 2021
The representative of the aristocratic dynasty of Great Britain, Lady Mary Charteris— is still a rebel. And this proves not only her addiction to bad habits and eccentric behavior, but even the wedding image. In 2012, the girl married a rock musician from the band The Big Pink, Robbie Furze. Designer Pam Hogg, known for her provocative collections, was responsible for creating the dress.
I must say that she coped with her task perfectly, because it is rumored that the most conservative guests of the wedding ceremony, Mary Charteris and Robbie Furza, cried with anger right during the wedding. The “half-naked” bride’s dress is to blame for everything, literally leaving no room for imagination. And in combination with a super understated skirt, the bride’s flawless figure looked simply absurd.
The singer got married in 1994. Regular messages from the wedding were followed by fans of the singer from all over the world. And there was definitely something to see. Celine Dion looked simply amazing in a chic dress with a long train. But there was one “but”. The bride’s headdress has gone down in the history of wedding fashion as one of the most ridiculous. It looked more like an art installation than a wedding accessory. The hat attracted all the attention, leaving neither Celine Dion nor her dress a single chance of success in the fashion world.

Tina Turner and Erwin Bach at their wedding, 2013
The famous singer married her chosen one Erwin Bach in 2013 after 30 years of marriage. Tina Turner was 73 at the time, and it turned out to be her first marriage. Perhaps that’s why she decided to abandon the traditional wedding dress in favor of something more extravagant.
The singer’s choice fell on a black dress with a green taffeta skirt from the Giorgio Armani Privé collection. We are confused not only by the shade of the outfit, but also by the presence of leggings with rhinestones peeking out from under an asymmetric skirt.
Christina Hendricks at her wedding to Jeffrey Arend, 2009
For the wedding celebration, the actress, it would seem, chose a completely classic figure-fitting wedding dress. However, she did not take into account the fact that such an image would not very favorably emphasize her feminine figure and large breasts, which seemed to fall out of the bodice.
The skirt also added inconsistency to the image, it was decorated with knots and assemblies at the back, which not only looked unsightly, but also probably turned out to be impractical at this celebration of life and love.
We are sure that you did not expect to see Lady Di on this list. However, even the image of a recognized fashion icon is still controversial. First of all, it was just huge, and Diana was literally lost in it. In addition, the dress turned out to be oversaturated with decor: ruffles, puffy sleeves, sequins, lace and pearls.(Read also: Not all that gold: how Princess Diana gave out cheap jewelry for expensive jewelry)
Of course, all this can be explained by the inexperience of a 19-year-old girl in matters of style and the desire to demonstrate her new royal status to the world. But whatever it was, over time she was able to improve and deservedly receive the status of a style icon.
