Several news outlets reported that "Gossip Girl" Blake Lively wore Chanel when she wed Ryan Reynolds over the weekend. That would seem to be a good guess since she had been a brand ambassador of the label and a favorite of creative director Karl Lagerfeld. But not so. Marchesa announced in a news release Monday afternoon that it had designed the one-of-a-kind couture ballgown, with draped bodice adorned with rose gold and crystal embroidery, and also provided the bridesmaid gowns. (Reynolds and his groomsmen reportedly wore Burberry with leather suspenders.)
The wedding was put together by Martha Stewart's team and included a "carnival hour" as well as an elegant reception. Martha Stewart Weddings magazine will feature the nuptials on its December cover. [People]
Fashion's not always pretty and polite. In fact tensions over seating ran so high at Zac Posen's New York Fashion Week show that a French fashion editor reportedly slapped the show's publicist, not to hurt her, the editor said, but to humiliate her. "Now you know you don't [mess] with French people," the editor reportedly said. [The Cut]
Lindsay Brown, a 21-year-old soccer player from Newport Beach, will appear on the cover of Seventeen magazine's October issue, as winner of the magazine's second annual "Pretty Amazing" cover contest, co-sponsored by Neutrogena, which we wrote about earlier this year. Brown was selected, the magazine announced in a news release, because of the SEGway Project she launched to empower young women through academics and athletics -- she started a girls' soccer team in Nepal, for example, and is working to begin programs in Cambodia and Kenya. Among the four runners-up (who will also be featured in the magazine) was 18-year-old pilot Kimberly Anyadike of Los Angeles.
