44. Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola
Although Mariah Carey and Tommy Mottola’s marriage ended after five years, their wedding is still remembered as one of Hollywood’s most prestigious events, partly thanks to the singer’s iconic dress. Today one of the biggest names in the fashion industry, when Vera Wang designed Mariah Carey’s wedding gown, it was only short years after she resigned from her position in Ralph Lauren and founded her bridal wear brand.
As appropriate for the Diva she is, Mariah Carey didn’t hold back at her first wedding to Tommy Mottola back in the early nineties. The nuptials, which were held at the St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York, totaled to $500,000. The event as a whole, and particularly the bride’s gown, were inspired by Princess Diana and Prince Charles’s wedding, in case you wondered why these photos resemble a royal wedding.
