Lea Michele announced her engagement to Zandy Reich back in 2018. Shortly thereafter, she hosted a star-studded engagement party. (Emma Roberts, Hilary Duff, and Ashley Tisdale were just a few of the celebs in attendance.) To partake in the festivities, Michele wore the Ulla Johnson Uma Dress ($545). The exact blue-and-white floral print she wore is currently out of stock, but an ivory paisley-print version is still available on the brand’s website. The one-shoulder design and midi-length skirt made for a perfect garden-engagement-party dress.
Ahead of Priyanka Chopra’s wedding (or should we say weddings?) to Nick Jonas, she hosted an intimate engagement party in Mumbai. She wore two stunning outfits. The first was a traditional outfit by Abu Jani Sandeep Khosla Couture, and the sunshine-yellow color was so flattering. The second was a formfitting nude midi dress with matching heels that looked like something her close friend Meghan Markle might wear. Shop a similar style below.
Jennifer Lawrence‘s engagement party took place back in May. To celebrate her engagement to Cooke Maroney, she wore a light-pink, flowing gown by L. Wells. Thanks to the layers of sheer chiffon and draped sleeves, her outfit was both romantic and elegant.
Gwyneth Paltrow celebrated her engagement to Brad Falchuk in April 2018 with an A-list party attended by the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Cameron Diaz, Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, and Kate Hudson. The bride-to-be wore a custom Giambattista Valli Haute Couture gown.
In 2017, Meghan Markle wore a dark-green sheath dress to her first official photo-call and interview with Prince Harry. It wasn’t exactly an engagement party, per se, but it still counts. The dress, which was by the Italian brand P.a.r.o.s.h., sold out from all online retailers in under an hour. Luckily, the retailer has some similar styles that are still up for grabs.
