Liza Minelli and David Gest: March 16, 2002
As one of the world’s ultimate entertainers—it’s no wonder that Minelli’s guest list hit 1,000 and the bill came in at $3.5 million dollars (including $700,000 on flowers and $40,000 on a 12-tied wedding cake). She wore a Bob Mackie for her fourth walk down the aisle as guests including Michael Jackson, Elton John, Elizabeth Taylor, David Hasselhoff, Robert Goulet, Lauren Bacall, Tito Jackson, and Mickey Rooney looked on. Bridesmaid Cindy Adams called it, the “night of 1,000 facelifts.” The couple divorced one year later.
