    Former Laguna Beach actress Whitney Port is reportedly eyeing this Oscar de la Renta two-piece wedding gown for her possible beach wedding. Someone should tell her it's okay to exchange vows on the sand without dressing up in a mermaid costume.

    Should we start with the fact that this wedding gown is actually a micro mini? How about the flashy color? The hits-you-out-of-nowhere peacock tail train? Who knew so much could be happening on so little of a dress?!
