The Curse Of The Celebrity Wedding Dress Photo Shoot

If only a crystal ball had been on reality star Kristin Cavallari's gift registry instead of crystal wine goblets, then prescience and not presents might have saved the latest victim of the celebrity wedding dress photo shoot curse.

Nobody knows for sure if foresight would have saved Cavallari's engagement, but it certainly would have saved the bride-to-be some embarrassment, as the former star of Laguna Beach and The Hills became the latest celebrity to pose in full wedding regalia for a wedding that wouldn't be.

Along with compatibility and attraction, timing and a bit of chance are integral in relationships. Celebrities have therecognizability factor and luck - and sometimes the misfortune - to be displayed on magazine covers and in spreads featuring them stunningly styled and posing in a variety of gorgeous wedding gowns prior to their actual nuptials. Miss Cavallari struck dreamy poses in a July 21 photo shoot for Life & Style Magazine just days before her July 23 breakup with Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler. The publishing cycle being what it is, there was no stopping the presses as the magazine hit newsstands July 27, leaving readers (and the almost bride's parents) to gasp at what a beautiful bride the former MTV star could've would've should've been.

Similar incidences have happened to other wanna-be celebrities, such as House's Jennifer Morrison (cover of InStyle Weddings' Summer 2007 issue) and CSI: Miami's Eva LaRue (InStyle Weddings' Winter 2009 issue). In fact, In Style Weddings ceased publication after Ms. LaRue's cover graced the stands the following March.

Time Inc., the powerhouse publishing corporation, appears to be Ground Zero for perpetuating the wedding dress photo shoot curse. InStyle Magazine, from which InStyle Weddings was spun off, consistently features stories and photos of glowing celeb brides who've actually made it to (and past) the alter and then within a few short years '" or even months '" file for divorce.

Other famous victims of the celebrity wedding photo shoot jinx include:

*Courtney Thorne-Smith radiant visage landed on newsstands as covergirl of the Spring 2001 InStyle Weddings just weeks after the bride had filed for divorce from scientist Andrew Conrad.

* Shannon Elizabeth, the well-known cinematic sexy foreign exchange student of the American Pie movies, posed in wedding garb for the Summer 2002 InStyle Wedding cover and then divorced fellow actor Joe Reitman in July 2005.

* Avril Levigne, rrriot girl singer whose wedding celebration with rrriot boy singer Deryck Whiblye graced the glossy pages of Summer 2007's InStyle wedding, was singing about the Big D by the summer of 2009.

* Drew Barrymore, lucky in life but unlucky in love, had her wedding to comedian Tom Green featured both in February 2002's InStyle and InStyle Weddings. But, according to a New York Times article by Alex Kuczynski, Ms. Barrymore and Mr. Green had called it quits in December, a mere five months after the ceremony -- and a number of weeks after both magazines had gone to press.

* Kelly Rowland, a singer with the group Destiny's Child, proved that InStyle doesn't have the market on the wedding photo shoot curse, appeared on Modern Bride's April/May 2005 days after calling off her wedding to Dallas Cowboy Roy Williams.

But are television, movie and music stars any more, ahem, star-crossed in their marriages than regular folk? Well, with the Pew Research Center reporting the divorce rate in America hovering around 50 percent , it would seem like they are just staying the course. But while plain Jane Public can take to Facebook and rip her ex-bethrothed a new one, a celebrity affected by the Wedding Dress Curse is left with a permanent reminder (although expertly Photoshopped) that her Love Story will only be experienced while viewing the orignal Ali McGraw/Ryan O'Neil movie on Netflix.
