Jessica Simpson’s Wedding Look Was Even More Gorgeous Than We Expected

jessica simpsonYou probably heard the big news over the weekend -- finally, after two kids and two postponements, Jessica Simpson married Eric Johnson. Yay! The nuptials took place at the San Ysidro Ranch, their children Maxwell and Ace walked down the aisle, there were barbecue and horseshoes and croquet at the reception, and it all sounds downright perfect for these two. BUT! We've been holding our breath for the most important details: Da dress. We want to see it! People magazine is finally spilling on Jessica Simpson's wedding day look and they have the first formal portrait of the bride. Have you seen it? I'll just say this: It was well worth the wait.


You can see Simpson's first official wedding portrait here -- and we're hoping we see more, soon! Here's what else we've learned about the bride's style.

1. The dress. Simpson wore a custom champagne and gold strapless multi-layer tulle gown designed by Carolina Herrera. "The whole dress is embroidered in gold and feels very regal” so as to transform the bride into "a beautiful golden girl," Herrera told People. The designer stitched a blue ribbon to the inside of the gown for Simpson's "something blue." "I always do that because I think it brings good luck," she says.

2. The veil. Simpson went with full drama to complement her gown and wore a cathedral-length veil. This is the longest type of veil, usually well over 100 inches long and trailing behind the bride.

3. The shoes. The bride wore Brian Atwood shoes -- perhaps a pair of princessy golden slippers like these.

4. The jewelry. A stylist and friend chose Neil Lane diamond earrings to sparkle with the dress: big diamond danglers set in gold. Masterminding Simpson's wedding look "was a labor of love," she says.

5. The makeup. To complement the formal, glittering gown and veil, Simpson's makeup artist Karan Mitchell went with a "romantic palette" for her makeup. In the first official portrait, we see some pale pink lipstick and mauve eye shadow.

6. The hair. Simpson's hairstylist Roque Jimenez describes her hairstyle as "sexy, easy, and ethereal ... Nothing too contrived." It's pulled back into a simple half updo with barely the loosest curls cascading down her back.
