We went all swoony over Jennifer Behr's Spring/Summer '13 line, but that was just the tip of the iceberg. The NY-based designer's bridal collection has gone and upped the stakes, offering brides-to-be a plethora of dainty and delicate ways to top off their dream dress. Inspired by the elegance of the early 20th centuary, Behr has used Swarovski crystals, silk chiffons, French veiling and handmade blooms to imbue her headpieces with femininity and opulence. Daisy Buchanan would be proud! If you're looking for something a little bit special for your big day, or just like to look, this beautifully shot lookbook will delight. Best bit? She ships to Oz!

Although we already know Kim Kardashian had a fairy tale wedding, there's no denying we're looking forward to tuning into the E! Entertainment channel tonight and tomorrow night to watch four hours of her wedding preparation and festivities. The one thing we are most excited about, though, is checking out her beauty look up close, including her traditional, princess-like tiara. Kim opted for a dripping-with-diamonds wraparound headpiece, with a long veil accentuating her voluminous chignon. While she stayed true to her signature makeup palette of smoky eyes, glossy lips and flushed cheeks, this circlet-style hair accessory added a distinctive style. Because it's a bit different from the usual crystal combs and clips, don't be surprised if you see the diamond-drop style coveted by many brides-to-be.
Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event airs tonight at 8.30pm on the E! Entertainment channel.
It's just 24 days to go until the Royal Wedding and reports surrounding Kate Middleton's bridal beauty look are heating up! Obviously exact details are being strictly guarded by Clarence House but we'd agree that Kate's long-time hairstylist James Pryce, from the Richard Ward salon, as well as Richard himself, would be pretty safe bets for the gig. On your big day you want to go with a stylist you know and trust — it's not the time to be making snap decisions and switching stylists.
Reports suggest that James and Richard will also be joined by four other "senior stylists" who will help assist. Some have contested the number, but either way, they'll be a big team tending to the bridal party's tresses — and why not, it's not every day you become a princess now, is it? It's thought that Kate will wear a traditional up 'do — even though most of you believe that Kate should have a choice and wear her hair down if she wishes — accessorised with a tiara. And word is, there's no shortage of choice, with over 80 from the royal wedding collection to choose from. Though Kate's eye has apparently already been caught by the $10million Strathmore Rose Tiara. We don't know. I mean it sounds alright.
Are you excited for the Royal Wedding? We'll be covering it LIVE so stay tuned for more!
