Hilary Duff observed tradition on her wedding day last Saturday (14.08.10).

The singer-and-actress - who tied the knot with hockey player Mike Comrie in a sunset ceremony in Santa Barbara, California - made sure she stuck to the customary procedure of including old, new, borrowed and blue items in her outfit.

She told America's OK! magazine: "I wore blue underwear and borrowed all of the jewellery from Van Cleef and Arpels, and the something old was my great-grandmother's cameo, which I wore on the inside of my dress. The dress itself was new."

The 22-year-old beauty also spoke of her delight at the strapless mermaid-style dress created for her by renowned wedding gown designer Vera Wang.

She explained: "There are not even words to describe my dress. It's exactly what I imagined, plus 10 times better."

The couple - who started dating in 2007 - got engaged in February after Mike, 29, proposed in Hawaii.
