Denise Richards Is Married!

Denise Richards was positively radiant on the day she married Aaron Phypers. With her wavy locks plied into a braided hairstyle and a short, lacy romper with a long, open-front skirt that showed off her glowing tan, the Wild Things star looked romantic, flirty, and beachy all at once. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills on Peacock and the Bravo App.

Alas, not everyone was so keen on The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills newcomer's look. But trolls aren't getting in the way of this newlywed's bliss! 

“I didn’t know there were so many opinions on what I wore,” Denise told People. “I stopped reading stuff about me online a long time ago. I loved what I wore — it was fun and sexy and I thought appropriate for a Malibu wedding by the beach.” Amen! 

She also spilled more details on the vision behind the sexy look, which — by the way — designer Mark Zunino made in one day!

"I didn’t want to do a traditional wedding dress,” Denise said. “I wore a traditional dress for my first wedding, so I wanted something different this time.” And different it was! 

"My dress was actually a romper which was perfect since we left the reception on Aaron’s motorcycle," Denise said. "I didn’t take the tulle skirt off until I got on his bike. I loved the skirt so much I wore it the entire evening." 

Wait, Denise's getaway car was a motorcycle? It's official: She is the most badass bride of all time.
