Inspired by the elegance of the early 20th centuary, Behr has used Swarovski crystals, silk chiffons, French veiling and handmade blooms to imbue her headpieces with femininity and opulence. Daisy Buchanan would be proud! If you're looking for something a little bit special for your big day, or just like to look, this beautifully shot lookbook will delight. Best bit? She ships to Oz!

What better reason to come out of retirement than to design a royal wedding dress? Valentino Garavani did just that, offering his services to Princess Madeleine of Sweden. HRH married American banker Christopher O'Neil in a traditional ceremony in her native home Stockholm, Sweden, over the weekend. And the dress? It was everything you'd hope for a Valentino-dressed bride, and more. According to the official Swedish Royal Court website, the gorgeous gown was made of silk organza and ivory Chantilly lace and featured a low-cut back, waist-pleats and a four metre train. The six metre long veil was also made of silk organza, and was edged with point d'esprit dots and appliqued Chantilly lace orange blossom. Fresh orange blossom topped the Princess' privately owned tiara.
The designer himself said of the royal commission, “Working with Princess Madeleine has just been so easy. . . She is very lovely girl. She is modern, fun, full of energy and enthusiasm, and she is so beautiful! It has been a pleasure and an honor.” Move aside Kate Middleton! From her beautiful jewellery to the detail on this exquisite dress — we think this royal bride deserves her own all angles gallery. Step inside to zoom in on all the dress details.

The country of Sweden celebrated today with the wedding of their Princess Madeleine. The youngest daughter of Sweden's King and Queen married New York banker Christopher O'Neill in Stockholm. The now-newlyweds met in New York City, where the princess had moved in 2010 following a previous broken engagement. During the ceremony, Madeleine read her vows in Swedish, while Christopher read his in English. The 30-year-old princess was dressed in a lace gown designed by Valentino Garavani, and the designer was among the many VIP guests that included other royals from around the world like Princess Charlene of Monaco and England's Prince Edward.
Of course Princess Madeleine's family was also there to help her celebrate. Her father, King Carl XVI Gustaf walked her down the aisle, and her mother Queen Silvia stayed close to her son and Madeleine's brother, Prince Carl Philip. Madeleine's older sister, Crown Princess Victoria, also enjoyed the festivities with her adorable one-year-old daughter Princess Estelle and husband Prince Daniel. It's been a busy week for those three, who celebrated Sweden's national day at the royal palace on Thursday. See photos of Sweden's royal wedding and the evening banquet that followed now!
He travelled with Jennifer Hawkins to Bali to help create her wedding day beauty look, and now, we've got the hair how-to — for you! Highly sought-after celebrity hair and makeup artist, Kerien Street, said Jennifer wanted a more relaxed bridal 'do. "Jennifer want to keep her hair in an effortless look. Most brides opt for the full 'make me over do' which in my opinion, is a big mistake," he tells POPSUGAR. To read his step-by-step to getting Jen's bridal hairstyle, keep reading.
The designer of Jennifer Hawkin' much-hyped wedding gown has been revealed this morning, thanks to Woman's Day magazine. Given their close working relationship, Toni Maticevski was always the front-runner to design the bride's dress — a rumour which was confirmed this morning via the weekly's 12 page cover story featuring the couple's Bali wedding. Jennifer's princess-style dress reportedly required 70 metres of silk organza, which is no surprise given the gown's intricately ruched bodice and full, tiered-ruffle skirt and train. Jen apparently loved wearing the dramatic dress so much that plans to change into a shorter, less formal Maticevski number were ditched mid-reception.
From walking the runway in his glamorous creations, to sitting front row at the designer's fashion week shows, Jen's soft spot for Toni Maticevski is well documented. To celebrate their stylish union, we've rounded up some of Jennifer Hawkins' most memorable Maticevski moments. And just quietly, we think it may have all started back in 2007. . . step inside to see why.
Former Miss Universe, model and designer, Jennifer Hawkins, married her sweetheart, Jake Wall, in Bali earlier this week. Woman's Day had the cover exclusive, and last night revealed the much anticipated cover of the newly-weds. Jennifer's hairstylist, Keiren Street, kept her strands very natural for the big day, opting to pull the front back into a neat clip. No doubt the humidity played a key role in her decision to clip her hair back, and the same could be said for her beautifully natural makeup by Liz Kelsh. The beach-themed wedding asked for a more minimal look, with peachy, glossed lips and full lashes. Her nails were also neutral — a safe option for brides on their big day. Overall, Jen's look is classic and understated — perfect for our Australian beauty queen.
