Haute Couple: Nicole Richie & Joel Madden Tie the Knot

-Nicole Richie & Joel Madden on New Years Eve 2010-

Just when, I wanted to feature Nicole Richie & Joel Madden as the next Haute Couple, I just learned that the happy couple just tied the knot yesterday in a low key but fabulous ceremony in Los Angeles, in father-of-the-bride Lionel Richie’s own backyard. Richie had celebrity hair stylist Bryon Williams on deck to make sure Nicole’s hair was perfect for the big day. The style icon walked down the aisle in a custom made Marchesa gown, which was made in New York City.


There were around 150 guests in attendance, including buddies Khloe Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Gwen Stefani, and bridesmaid Samantha Ronson. Who else to make the wedding official for the two but rapper Rev. Run of Run-DMC, who just happens to be an ordained minister. Benji Madden, brother to Joel, served as best man while Nicole’s BFF Marsha Gordon was the maid of honor in the ceremony.

Although the couple just wed yesterday, Richie & Madden fell as if they have been husband and wife already. The couple have two beautiful children together, Harlow & Sparrow. Last December, Nicole posted a photo on nicolerichie.com of the happy  family. They’re too cute for words.

Congrats to Joel & Nicole! Here are some haute photos of the fashionable newlyweds through the year.

Haute Couple: Alicia Keys & Swizz Beatz

Songstress Alicia Keys and rapper/producer hubby Swizz Beatz were married this past July, and compliment each other in so many ways. Their style is hip-hop urban meets glam, no matter what the situation. The happy couple recently gave birth to their first son together, baby Egypt Daoud Dean, born on October 14, 2010.  The proud parents are seen here shopping in NYC just days after the birth of their son last month. Even in sweats, they still look haute!

Shortly before the new baby arrived, Keys shows off a motherly glow in Dolce & Gabbana as she hosted the 2010 Keep A Child Alive Black Ball on September 30th. The two looks so in love together. Beatz rocked a navy velvet dinner jacket with a fitted velvet bow-tie that looked so elegant next to Alicia’s gown.

Here are some other pictures of this edition of Haute Couple.

Haute Couple: Emily Blunt & John Krasinski

This haute couple recently wed this July in a private ceremony in Lake Como, Italy with only 50 lucky guests. Emily Blunt looked absolutely beautiful in her Marchesa wedding gown. A custom-made sweetheart gown with cream chiffon, draped down to the ground with embroidered crystals. Blunt, 27, began dating the 30-year-old star of the The Office back in 2008 and were engaged in August 2009.

Emily Blunt & John Krasinski make such a delightful & fashionable pair. Seen here at the It’s Complicated premiere in NYC, Blunt wears a haute LBD creating a monochromatic look paired with a black blazer. Not to mention the beautiful Diego Dolcini shoes she so effortless rocks here.

Also, can we just talk about how ridiculous Emily Blunt looks on the cover of September’s UK edition of Elle Magazine. Peep some of the photos here:

Haute Couple: Kim Kardashian & Miles Austin

Everyone knows the Kardashian girls love their athletes; and who can really blame the athletes for wanting loving them back? Around two weeks ago, Kim K told E! Online’s PartyGirl, “I’m definitely dating” Miles Austin. Austin, a wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys, will even be seen in season 5 of Keeping up with the Kardashians! Kim also tells E! that she wants to take things slow because of their busy schedules. Busy or not, when they are caught together they look haute. Although Miles’ style may be more laid-back than the glamorous Miss Kim, they look great with one another. In the picture below, Kim is rocking amazing Christian Louboutin Clou Neoud Studded Platform Pumps and Miles is chilling in Converse by John Varvatos Chuck Taylor Slip-ons.

Haute Couple: Rihanna & Matt Kemp

Rihanna and LA Dodger Matt Kemp have been an item for a little while now, although they like to keep things very hush-hush. I have to say, I’m happy for Rihanna. She’s looks hotter than ever with her fire engine red locks and Matt Kemp’s not too bad himself!

In the above photo, Rihanna and Kemp are seen in LA. Rihanna is wearing stunning Christian Louboutin Pigalle Patent Leather Pumps with a skin hugging Zac Posen dress. Kemp shows off his fashionable side in Lanvin Grossgrain Sneakers and a Selvedge RRL Work Shirt.

Rihanna can stop traffic even if she is just walking out of and AT&T Wireless store in LA with her beau. Rihanna shows off her Lanvin ballet flats while Matt Kemp is rocking his Louis Vuitton ATTITUDE sunglasses.

Only a haute couple could be so fashion forward relaxing on a yacht in Cabo!

Haute Couple: Katy Perry & Russell Brand

He kissed a girl & she liked it. Russell Brand and Katy Perry have been an item since 2009 and are currently engaged. They are absolutely adorable together. I mean besides the fact that her parents are pastors and he’s a recovering addict; they’re a make made in heaven. Fashion heaven at least. Their outlandish style always compliments the other. This California girl’s best accessory is her man and even though they tend to stay out of the public eye, I was able to put together some cute pictures of the two. Besides the fact that I couldn’t get “California Gurls” out of my head, they still deserve my pick for this edition of  Haute Couple.

Haute Couple: Sean Lennon & Kemp Muhl

Sean Lennon, the musician slash actor son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono has the quirkiest style ever. And I love it. Lennon and model girlfriend, Kemp Muhl are famously seen wearing (dare I say) matching outfits. It doesn’t work for many people and can come across as cheese-city. However, it works for these two. Their styles complement one another and so they are definitely my pick for haute couple of the week!
