Behind the Scenes of “Project Runway All Star” Laura Kathleen’s Big Day
St. Louis native and “Project Runway All-Star” Laura Kathleen Planck tied the knot this past weekend at the Fabulous Fox Theatre. The fab designer invited ALIVE to partake in the day of ceremonies, and we couldn’t have been more honored. The lighting and architecture of the The Fox provided a relaxing backdrop for the bride as hair stylist Tiffany Roberts and makeup artist Kimmie Feilds prepared her for the festivities.
Melanie Moon, in the process of receiving her signature smokey eye, told us that Laura Kathleen wanted all of her bridesmaids to feel like themselves. Each girl had creative control over their own hair and makeup.
All 11, yes 11 of her bridesmaids donned an original Laura Kathleen jumpsuit. The universally flattering fit and fabrication had each girl excited to have a bridesmaid number they will certainly be rocking again. Left to right: Dara Baker, Meghan Griffin, Lauren Wright and Dana Baker.
The gracious Mrs. Planck (mother of the bride) was eager to show off her bold red Laura Kathleen-designed dress. The classic shape and strong color kept the mother of the bride current, but still timeless.
Laura Kathleen had three ensembles planned for the night. This beautiful number was an original print by the designer herself. The vintage shape combined with modern elements like the sheer cutouts on the side had us begging to snag one for ourselves.
If we know anything about Laura Kathleen, it’s that she loves a jumpsuit. Victor Luna designed this gorgeous pearl-adorned jumpsuit, which served as her “honeymoon outfit.”
Last, but certainly not least, is the wedding gown! Laura Kathleen re-designed Grammy Peggy’s (her father’s mother) 60-year-old dress. The ivory satin dress was simple and elegant and fit perfectly with the decor of The Fox. Of course, there’s plenty more we’re waiting to reveal!

Congratulations Laura and Danny! We at ALIVE couldn’t be happier for you.
