Showbiz stars turned out for yesterday’s sunset Malibu wedding between superstar singer Fergie, 33, and her beau, actor Josh Duhamel, 36, exactly as we had reported over New Year’s Eve when the couple stayed here at the Palazzo after her Venetian concert and Lavo club countdown. They have been dating since 2004 and became engaged late last year.
Fergie, once upon a time Stacy Ferguson, chatted with me in our exclusive video interview about being in love and how one day after touring once again with the Black Eyed Peas, she and Josh look forward to starting a family.
Josh’s cast mates from NBC’s Las Vegas were on hand for the 30-minute ceremony: Molly Sims, former Vegas Magazine cover girl; Vanessa Marcil; and legendary actor James Caan. Among the other stars who attended the romantic ceremony at the Church Estate Vineyards in Malibu were our upcoming Planet Hollywood-based Miss America Pageant host Mario Lopez; Kid Rock, who performed here last weekend at the Palms; all members of the Black Eyed Peas, including Las Vegas regular Will.I.Am; and actress Kate Hudson, who co-stars with Fergie in the upcoming film Nine.
The newlyweds exchanged white 18k gold wedding bands engraved with personal messages. She wore a white, corseted Dolce & Gabbana wedding gown with diamond-flecked veil, carried a bouquet of white flowers and was attended by 10 bridesmaids as a 14-piece classical orchestra played during the exchange of vows. They stood under an arch of magnolia trees filled with thousands of white roses.
After a beachfront honeymoon, Fergie takes off on a new Black Eyed Peas world tour.
