After years of belting out our fave “Miss Independent”-without-him and “Since You Been Gone” break-up ballads, American Idol songstress Kelly Clarkson officially married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in an intimate Tennessee farm wedding on Oct. 20, 2013. She walked down the aisle wearing Temperley London’s ‘Jessamine’ gown and a Maria Elena headpiece. Not to mention a bouquet full of sunflowers and bluebonnets. Love her romantic meets rock-n-roll look? (We do too!) Here’s a photo gallery of 10 lookalikes you can wear to mimic her style.

Don’t Bare Arms

Looking for a chic accessory that will pack a lot of punch without overwhelming your wedding-day look? Gloves can be the perfect addition you’re looking for. Designers added long opera gloves, short lace gloves and even gauntlets, fingerless gloves, to complete the look of their wedding gowns.

While gloves were once a staple in every woman’s daily wardrobe, they are now limited to cold weather and formal events, but after seeing the various pairings on the runway brides having an informal or formal, day or evening, ballroom or backyard wedding can put on a pair.

Here’s a glove-wearing tip: For the wedding ceremony, ask your seamstress to cut a slit on the ring finger of the left glove so your groom can easily place a wedding band on your finger.

Here are a few glove options from the Fall 2013 Bridal runway:

Anne Barge’s Parisian-inspired collection showcased both long and short options. On the far left is a pair of off-white short fingerless gloves, adorned with a small bow. In the center, sheer opera gloves, that go over the elbow, is the perfect complement to a tulle gown. Both gloves by Carolina Amato.

Pnina Tornai, exclusively at Kleinfeld, designed a pair of lace gauntlets embellished with silver embroidery, and if you look carefully you can see a large decorative bow at the top of each one.

Five Fabulous Looks by Pnina Tornai

Everyone knows the Pnina Tornai (sold exclusively at Kleinfeld Bridal) show is going to be a jaw dropper. The gowns are embellished with Swarovski crystals and pearls the size of golf balls and the word sexy barely describes thm. Here are five show stoppers from the collection:

Pearls: Tornai wrote on the run of show that this collection was inspired by pearls. This white Alencon lace halter dress features a pearl necklace that flatters both the neckline and back.

Mother of Pearl: In addition to embellishing her gowns with pearls Tornai also created this more understated look with them and designed a Mother of Pearl bolero. Paired with an ivory taffeta spaghetti strap V-neck gown with asymmetrical tiered skirt is a chic bolero made from dozens of Mother of Pearl circles.

Slinky is Also Sexy: Not all of the gowns in the 2012 collection are pouffy. There were two silk charmeuse dresses with Swarovski crystal embellishments. They both featured the embellishments under the empire waist and the one on the left also had Swarovski crystals around the neck. Both had extremely low backs, as in if they went any lower…

The Fit: I once asked a sales associate at Kleinfeld why Pnina Tornai was one of their best selling collections and she said, “It’s the fit.” The corsetry is designed so well that no matter what your figure you’ll look and feel fabulous. And as for the sheer corsets, she told me they can add a liner.

Two in One: Save your money on a second reception dress by buying this two-in-one design. This ivory pearl encrusted one-shoulder mini dress has a detachable silk taffeta skirt.
