We couldn’t resist sharing one last tidbit from our exclusive scoop about Chrissy Teigen and John Legend‘s wedding renewal ceremony in Lake Como, Italy last weekend. According to our spy, a few guests were surprised that Chrissy and John brought along their children when the invitation specifically instructed guests NOT to bring their kids. The problem? Guests were expected to pay for their own airfare, ground transportation and accommodations, and with rooms at the resort going for over $6000 a night, the tab easily added up. My source says that some guests were miffed that they shelled out so much money to attend, and were forced to leave their kids at home with sitters. “It’s one thing to say no kids allowed if John and Chrissy were picking up the tab for everything, but it’s borderline obnoxious to ban kids and still expect people to pay their own way,” the insider explains.

It’s a woman’s prerogative to change her mind and that’s exactly what Chrissy Teigen did. We had the exclusive scoop about Chrissy and John Legend‘s wedding renewal ceremony in Lake Como, writing about it days before TMZ, People and Page 6. Our well-informed source blabbed about Chrissy’s plan to wear a RED gown to the renewal ceremony even though she instructed all of her guests to wear black and white – so SHE would really stand out. At the last minute, Chrissy realized it might NOT be a great idea. The LAST thing she wanted was to face any backlash because she was ALMOST canceled when some of her past tweets resurfaced. Long story short, Chrissy opted to play it safe and wore the black gown she packed as a back up. Smart move. The good news is she’s keeping the red gowns so you’ll see her as the lady in red in the future.
We had the exclusive scoop about John Legend and Chrissy Teigen’s plans to renew their vows in Lake Como on September 16, and now we are hearing that the bride plans to wear bright RED when she remarries her groom! According to our source, John and Chrissy have asked their guests to dress in formal black and white attire for the renewal ceremony, and Chrissy plans to really STAND OUT by being the lady in RED! She’s bringing a total of FIVE floor length bright red couture gowns with her from various designers, including Dolce and Gabbana, Valentino, and Versace, and she’ll choose which one to wear on the day of her renewal ceremony…Oh, and she also might change a few times!
Chrissy Teigen and John Legend are going back to the scene of the crime – they’re renewing their vows in the same place they married 10 years ago! The couple have a lot to celebrate after a rough few years. Chrissy suffered a devastating miscarriage and was almost canceled after some of her past unkind tweets resurfaced. Chrissy and John recently welcomed another baby and decided to mark their 10 year wedding anniversary with an over-the-top celebration in Lake Como, Italy. They’ve invited HUNDREDS of their closest friends and even developed a WEBSITE with instructions for their guests – they’re sticking to a specific dress code so the website includes a montage of photos advising their guests on what to wear to each event. The good times start on Friday, September 15th, and last for three days – wrapping up on Sunday the 17th. Chrissy and John are picking up the tab for the festivities, but expect their guests to pay for their own flights and hotels. On the agenda: a cocktail party on Friday, a lavish black tie reception where they will renew their wedding vows on Saturday, and then a pool party on Sunday afternoon before everyone says arrivederci.
Mariah Carey’s first outing after renewing her vows with Nick last night at the Eiffel Tower, was naturally, to go shopping in Paris. Diminutive designer Azzedine Alaia accompanied her and her twins from her hotel to his design salon. Several bodyguards toted the twins and made sure she was steady in her heels. Alaia creates those skin tight bondage dresses adored by Hollywood starlets, so Mariah gleefully perused the collection while the kids snoozed.
