NE-YO‘s wedding cake was quite the sweet spectacle.

The Grammy winner — who married model Crystal Renay on Saturday — celebrated saying “I Do” in style with a towering cream confection from Royal Cakes.

Measuring in at 6 feet tall, the stunning vanilla-hazelnut-praline and red velvet cake (handpicked by the bride, who told PEOPLE ahead of their nuptials it was what she was looking forward to most on their big day) was ornamented with 400 Swarovski crystal-encrusted, handmade sugar flowers.

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

how tacky a pregnant woman isn’t supposed to wear a white wedding gown and a Swarovski Crystal encrusted cake is over the top to say the least what ever happened to understated elegance on your wedding day

I’ve never been a Neyo fan, but don’t paint him as the villain for marrying who he married. Monyetta Shaw is a trashy hoe who’s sleeping with Malcolm Jamal Warner although she knows he’s involved with other people…he’s not the first person she’s done that with.

I’d be ashamed if I walked down the aisle in a white dress with a pregnant belly. She should’ve used contraception until after she got married.
