We love summer weddings, but most of all we love looking at the wedding dresses of our favorite celebs. Carrie Underwood, Megan Fox, Miranda Kerr, Emily Blunt, Lala Vasquez, and Penelope Cruz all took turns walking down the aisle this summer, and now two more big-name ladies followed suit: Chelsea Clinton and Alicia Keys. And while their life paths are totally different, they do have one thing in common — both chose the designer Vera Wang to make their gowns. Let's discuss ...

The daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton chose an elegant strapless style that consisted of a laser cut organza ball skit and train, silk tulle diagonally draped bodice, and beaded waist for her wedding to Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, New York. Accented with a classic veil and a bouquet of white gardenias and roses, Chelsea looked stunning in her gown, which reportedly cost $28,000. Vera Wang was also spotted in Rhinebeck over the weekend. Don't you just want to touch that skirt?

She also wore Vera when she wed Swizz Beatz this weekend, but opted for a totally different look — a one-shouldered, ivory silk Grecian-style gown. The pregnant songstress went for a dazzling headband instead of a veil, and held a bouquet of purple calla lilies. Her ceremony was set to the background of the magical Mediterranean sea.
