This summer has been a season of some pretty epic weddings. We have seen two young women become princesses and one fashion princess become rock royalty.

It’s also been a refreshing time for wedding gowns, moving away from the strapless princess gown and towards a different silhouette: a one with sleeves and shoulder details. And we, of course, loved their accessories. Unfortunately we can’t all be princesses and supermodels, but we have some ideas on how to get the look of one.

KENNETH JAY LANE Pearl Drop Earrings

First was Kate Middleton, now Duchess of Wales, in an Alexander McQueen lace gown which was an absolute perfection: very conservative, but very modern and romantic at the same time. Her Cartier “Halo” tiara from 1936 that she “borrowed” from the Queen kind of left us speechless. Okay okay, the little drop earrings were pretty too!

Then there was Charlene Wittstock who married Prince of Monaco last week. Her Armani Prive gown was so chic, so simple and so modern. She opted not to wear a tiara, and instead wore several floral pins or combs that were nesting on her chignon.

Kate Moss also got married last week! We have to say that her wedding looked a lot more fun than then the royal ones. Everyone seemed so happy, relaxed and casual. Kate wore a romantic bohemian Galliano gown. Her hair was down in the regular Kate style and adorned with a veil with two small flowers on each side. Her earrings were simple little pendants and she wore a sole thin diamond bracelet. She really is always so effortlessly chic, never overdone.

Anyone happy soon-to-be brides out there?
