Royal Babies and Rosy Weddings: Our Favourite Celeb Stories of Spring
May 14, 2015
With the spring time fully under way, we thought we’d take a look back at some of our favourite celebrity stories to hit headlines over the past few weeks – from glamorous and star-studded weddings to the birth of a brand new princess!
World Welcomes Princess Charlotte
William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, welcomed their baby girl into the world on May 2nd, naming her Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana. The happy couple stood on the steps of the hospital in which she was born and posed happily, and probably exhaustively, for well-wishers and the media.
Kate looked characteristically pretty and elegant with perfectly styled hair and just a hint of a bump visible under her bespoke floral yellow Jenny Packham dress. Earlier in the day, William had brought son George to see his little sister and the pair looked cute in matching blue jumpers. Princess Charlotte is the most senior princess to be born since 1950, when the Princess Royal was born, putting her fourth in line to the throne after Charles, William and the new Prince George.
We loved this story because it helped reignite the public’s passion for the monarchy, in spite of many attempts to cite them as obsolete in modern times. Although the royal family have been perhaps viewed as out of touch, they are very much a part of the DNA of the UK and William and Kate’s down-to-earth and approachable nature has changed opinions a lot in recent years. Plus, there’s nothing more magical than a real life Princess!
Millie Mackintosh Wows at Friend’s Wedding
Now, we go from the real royal family to one of the queens of glamour and style, ex-Made in Chelsea star and Mrs. Green – Millie Mackintosh. The stunning beauty, who made her name on the aforementioned reality TV show and wed rapper Professor Green in 2013 attended the wedding of her close friend Stephanie Smart. Stephanie married Ross Desmond, son of Irish billionaire Dermot Desmond, in a lavish and luxurious ceremony, but it was Millie’s on-point wedding guest fashion that stole the show.
The English rose showed off her figure in a floor-length pink gown with cut-out back detail. The cut was incredibly flattering and perfectly matched with a pink and white floral headpiece atop a hairstyle of loose curls. We love Millie’s style and were blown away at what an incredibly beautiful bride she was herself back in 2013, so we were happy to see that a couple of years of marriage hasn’t detracted from her title of Style Goddess!
Amy Adams Says ‘I Do’ after 14 Years
Five time Oscar-nominated actress Amy Adams and her actor-director fiancee Daren le Gallo wed after dating for fourteen years and sharing a daughter. For many celebrity couples, fourteen years together seems like a lifetime but it is just the beginning for the two 40-year-olds. They are believed to have wed in an intimate ceremony in sunny California on May 2nd and we can’t stop wondering just what kind of wedding it was! Amy’s looks and style make her an enviable bride so we are wondering what her rumoured Marchesa dress was like – and whether she hid her pale but beautiful complexion under a parasol!
Marchesa gowns range in style but most are relatively simple and elegant, perfect for highlighting Amy’s fabulous colouring! We want to know everything about the special day, but it looks like this couple had their private ceremony as private as they come! We’ve got fingers crossed for a few pics as we just have to see how handsome the couple looked.
