Olivia Palermo’s Wedding ‘Dress’ Isn’t What We Expected

Oliva Palermo tied the knot with her beau of six and a half years, Johannes Huebl, in Bedford, New York over the weekend, and had an interesting choice of wardrobe for the big day. She didn't go for your typical embellishments, bows, ruching or lengthy trains that we usually see in a wedding dress — in fact, she didn't wear a gown at all.

The stylish socialite revealed on her blog that she went for a three-piece getup, including a cream cashmere sweater, a full tulle skirt with satin, silk and floral detailing, along with, yep, little white shorts. While shorts at a wedding sound like a huge no-no, somehow Olivia pulled it off with the help of wedding designer extraordinaire Carolina Herrera, who designed all three pieces.

Although the outfit wasn't what we expected, the look was whimsical, beautiful, classy and well, fit for an intimate park wedding with close family and friends. Not to mention how well it complemented the groom's dashing white Marc Anthony suit and navy Charvet tie.

Olivia also managed to squeeze her "something blue" into the getup, choosing Manolo Blahnik satin blue pumps. The shoes are the same pair worn by the fictional Carrie Bradshaw to her city hall wedding to Mr. Big. This has us thinking that maybe Carrie's out-of-the-ordinary wedding ensemble in the Sex and the City movie served as inspiration.
