Kelly Clarkson will walk down the aisle in a Vera Wang wedding dress when she marries Brandon Blackstock next Fall. But don’t expect the dress to be anything like a traditional Cinderella gown.
The wedding gown “is my personality in a dress,” she tells People.com. “It’s sweetly damaged. A little rock and roll. A little tattered. Nothing like a princess thing!”
The singer, who tried on dresses at at the West Hollywood boutique on February 1, says things didn’t quite go as planned, but she still found the perfect dress.
“I was in the changing room, and I looked at my armpits, and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? I look like a cave woman!’ ” she says. “And then I took my pants off, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, my legs match!’ My nails looked like a hot mess; my eyebrows looked like bushes. I was so not a girl. I started tearing up because I’m like, ‘This is not me. I’m usually not this gross. I’m just so busy!’
“And then on top of that,” Clarkson continues, “My friend got incredibly ill like in the movie ‘Bridesmaids.’ She’s like, ‘We are totally not going to get asked back here.'”
Kelly and Brandon got engaged in December after nine months of dating.
