Here Comes the Bride: Jessica Simpson Weds in Carolina Herrera

Jessica Simpson may mistake tuna for chicken and wings for actual buffalo, but when it comes to fashion, our favorite blonde bombshell knows her stuff. Take her wedding dress, for example. This weekend, she donned a Caroline Herrera gown to marry longtime beau Eric Johnson.

A Twist on the Classics: Olivia Palermo’s Wedding “Dress”

Here comes the bride. Twenty-eight-year-old beauty and fashion mogul Olivia Palermo tied the knot this weekend with her beau, Johannes Huebl, the German model (not bad) she’s been dating since 2008. The ceremony? Small and intimate. The dress? Nonexistent.

That’s right. After months of debate – will she wear Cavalli? Valentino? – Palermo landed on a Carolina Herrera “dress” that was, in fact, not a dress at all. Just a light cashmere sweater and tulle skirt over simple shorts. A bold choice, yet would you expect anything less of the trendsetter?

Her “something blue”? The same Manolos Carrie Bradshaw married Mr. Big in during the Sex and the City movie. Turns out the flick is an old favorite of Palermo’s. (No runaway bride for Johannes, fortunately.)

For more wedding details and pictures, head to Vogue.

Best Friends Fur-Ever: Designers and Their Pet Doppelgängers

People who resemble their pets – it’s an interesting phenomenon that I still haven’t quite figured out. But when the owner is a household name in fashion and Fido shares his or her impeccable style, I’m easily obsessed.

You see, these fashionable duos may not be the identical types that often go viral online, but they do share the same love of style and the finer things in life. For example, Donatella Versace’s terrier is treated to daily deep-conditioning treatments, while Carolina Herrera’s pooch was immortalized in a print for her line back in 2012.

But is all that champagne and caviar kibble all it’s cracked up to be? So far, the BFFs (best furry friends) have yet to comment. Personally, if Karl Lagerfeld ever asked me to jump, I’d probably do one of two things: instinctively say “how high,” or just roll over and die.

Check out The Coveteur to see all of fashion’s furry friends.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

A Tuesday roundup of our recent Pinterest obsessions

We’re still coming down from our New York Fashion Week high. Can you blame us? It was a color-story dream.

1. From lipstick to handbags, Rebecca Minkoff’s collection was all about the oxblood accents.

2. MILLY has officially assured us that black-on-black (on black) is way more chic than morbid.

3. Pink came alive in every shade on the Monique Lhuillier runway.

4. Often-underappreciated navy made a major comeback in SUNO’s collection.

5. Carolina Herrera covered her catwalk in blood orange.

Can’t get enough Pinterest inspiration? Check out past boards that caught our eye.
