The Jewelry Insider

June 30, 2009

The Girl Next Door known for booty shaking and pole dancing turned traditional for her big nuptials to Philadelphia Eagle star, Hank Baskett, this weekend. Gone were the skin-tight clothes and cleavage shots and in came the big puffy dress, princess shoes and diamonds, diamonds, diamonds.

The bride wore a gown she designed herself with a local Los Angeles seamstress, and she accessorized with over $100,000 in diamonds. The gems came from jeweler, Michael Barin, and included 4.25-carat platinum and diamond drop earrings worth $47,000 and a 2.5-carat platinum and diamond pendant worth $33,700.

While official wedding photos have not been released, you can almost see the bling from the helicopter photos taken by the hordes of paparazzi circling the Playboy Mansion gardens.

Former boyfriend, Hugh Hefner, did not walk Kendra down the aisle as was
rumored (her brother did the honors), but he was in attendance with his twin
blondes and beamed with pride for his former love.

“I could not be more delighted,” Hefner told E! “This is one of the happiest days in one of the happiest places on earth.”

The 300 guests also included Kendra’s famous roommates, Holly Madison and Bridget Marquardt, who were blushing bridesmaids along with five other women.
