Behold: Kim Kardashian's wedding dress has been revealed!

After months of speculation regarding which designer the reality star was going to wear for her wedding, People reports that the long-sleeved floral pattern design (above) was designed by none other than Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy. For those more familiar with Kim and less about fashion, he's the designer who famously dressed the 33-year-old in what made her look like an old lady's sofa at last year's Met Gala.

Tisci apparently also dressed Kim's groom, Kanye West, for their wedding - which took place in Florence, Italy yesterday.

Keira Knightley and Karl LagerfeldKeira Knightley had the "least pretentious wedding ever," according to Karl Lagerfeld.

The British actress married rocker James Righton in an intimate ceremony in the South of France last month, and Chanel's creative director felt the low-key nuptials were very tasteful. The 79-year-old designer spoke fondly of Keira - who is the face of Chanel's Coco Mademoiselle scent - saying she looked chic in a short Chanel dress with flat ballet pumps for her big day.

"She had the least pretentious wedding ever. The whole thing was relaxed. I think it's perfect. After all, they lived together for quite a time. It's not as if she is a young girl of 18 who sees the husband for the first time. She is not a country girl," he said.

He also discussed working with Keira, revealing she was easy to get along with on set in her recent role as Coco Chanel in a film focusing on the opening of the designer's first store in the French seaside town of Deauville: "Keira was genius, no? I work well with her. Very easy. Keira has zero problem in her way of behaving and she knows everybody."

Anne Hathaway with ValentinoValentino Garavani has designed Anne Hathaway's wedding dress.

Although the actress has tried to keep all details about her upcoming wedding to Adam Shulman under wraps, the legendary designer revealed he "did the dress" for her big day. Valentino also revealed he thinks of Anne as a daughter and believes her latest movie Les Miserables will make her an even bigger star than she already is.

"She's a very good friend of mine. She's like my daughter! She's sensational. She's fantastic. She's a girl that... She deserves what she has in this life. [That] means, she's already a great star. But she's going to be a great, great, great, great thousand times great star. She has all the qualities. And wait until you hear her voice [in Les Miserables]. She's amazing," he told E! News.

Anne previously insisted the nuptials won't take place until 2013 as she is too busy this year with the release of blockbuster movies The Dark Knight Rises and Les Miserables:

Avril LavigneAvril Lavigne's wedding dress will be made up of ripped up gowns.

The "Sk8r Boi" singer - who is engaged to marry Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger - has already made plans for the outfit she will wear at her forthcoming nuptials, and may rip up a number of pieces and put them all back together.

"I have an idea of what I want. It might be something that I buy a few different dresses and rip them up and put them all together and dye them, or maybe I'll kind of do a collaboration with another designer," she said.

Avril is particularly enamored with her pear-shaped diamond engagement ring, and finds it goes with all outfits she is wearing: "I can't take it off. I sleep with it on. It goes with every outfit. Get engaged, it's the perfect accessory for every outfit. I did it. You should, too."

Keira Knightley’s Jeans and T-shirt Wedding?

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, Fashion Designers,

James Righton and Keira KnightleyKeira Knightley may have a "jeans and t-shirt" wedding.

The Anna Karenina actress - who is engaged to Klaxons musician James Righton - thinks it would be "pretty generous" if Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld offered to create a gown for her, but is not sure if it would be the right choice yet.

"Well, that would be pretty generous of him. He's an incredible designer. Would I say yes? To be honest, I'm working on another film straight after Anna Karenina, which finishes after Christmas. Then, maybe I'll start thinking about the dress and the guests and the venue. It really depends on what sort of wedding I decide to have - if I go with jeans and t-shirt options, then maybe it wouldn't be quite right. I haven't decided on anything yet."

Despite a fearsome reputation, Keira claims Karl is a "nice man" and enjoys likes the work she has done with Chanel as she is allowed to pout: "He really is such a nice man, when you're shooting with him, he just sits there holding your hand. Working on Chanel campaign is so different to working on a huge film with Chanel I'm told to pout all I want!"
