We got to catch up with ‘The Vampire Diaries’ star, who filled us in on her upcoming wedding — and she couldn’t stop gushing about her dress!
Kat Graham, 24, looked sensational at Foster Grant’s 85th Anniversary party on July 17, 2014, at the Gansevoort Park Avenue Hotel in NYC, where she filled us in on all the juicy details surrounding her wedding to Cottrell Guidry — and her gorgeous gown for the big day!
Kat Graham’s Wedding Dress — Designer Revealed:
We love Kat’s style: it is funky, unique, and suits her quirky, sexy personality — so it comes as no surprise that she put special thought into finding the best dress for her big day.
“The dress is Inbal Dror and I’m in love with it, its an Israeli designer, my whole family is Israeli so it’s kind of like a big deal, so I’m really excited about it,” she told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. It’s so nice to hear that the gown has so much meaning, and Kat’s face lit up as she spoke about the gorgeous creation!
“It’s gorgeous, it’s different, not a typical dress, but it’s just going to be a classic wedding. I’m actually really excited, I wish it was sooner,” she gushed. “A lot of people are like ‘well did you design your dress?’ and I’m like, I would’ve, had I not found it, but literally, this girl is my soulmate wedding dress designer and I literally slipped into something she had and it fit like a glove, no alterations, no nothing. It’s divinity.” Wow — we can’t wait to see it on the star!
As for Cottrell’s wedding day attire, Kat isn’t so sure. “I don’t know what designer Cottrell is wearing yet, so shout out to any designers reading this!”
Kat Graham’s Wedding Date:
It seems as though we’ve been waiting quite sometime for Kat and Cottrell’s wedding, but Kat begs to differ. “We’ve been together six years in November, so, it doesn’t feel long. It just feels like, you know, we’re gonna be together forever,” said Graham. How adorable!
Have no fear though, we can expect to hear wedding bells soon! “Everything is planned and I just – it’s so funny because everyone was like, ‘Oh she’s getting married, she’s getting married this summer!’ We actually work so much, I mean between my stuff with Foster Grant, my stuff with the UN, and producing and all this other stuff, we looked at each other like, ‘Where’s the time for each other?’ You know.”
Kat Graham’s Love Advice:
Well we definitely needed some relationship advice from Kat, considering she has a long and healthy relationship, and she was happy to share some! “It’s important that when you start a relationship, you guys have to really… how you start it, is how you end it. It’s not a job, it’s not an event, it’s not a red carpet – so we were like, let’s work on building our lives and move it to next year, so we moved it to next year,” said The Vampire Diaries star. So it sounds like the wedding bells will be ringing in 2015 for these two love birds!
Kat Graham & Foster Grant:
Kat is the latest celeb to be featured in the brand’s historic and iconic ‘Who’s that behind those Foster Grants?’ ad campaign. Foster Grant is accredited with the birth of sunglasses in the United States, selling the first pair on the Atlantic City boardwalk for only 10 cents in 1929! It’s been awhile since we caught up with Kat, so it was great to sit down and dish about her wedding details.
Although Kat is a busy bride-to-be, we can’t wait to see her walk down the aisle!
