"It basically fit except my stupid upper rib cage which grew after my 2 babies," Busy Philipps shared on Instagram about her wedding dress re-wear


Busy Philipps just pulled off the ultimate fashion feat.

The late night host, 39, re-wore her wedding dress on Wednesday’s episode of Busy Tonight, 12 years after she tied the knot with producer Marc Silverstein in 2007.

Philipps wore the dress in honor of the episode’s Made of Honor reunion featuring Philipps’ costars from the 2008 romantic comedy, Michelle Monaghan and Whitney Cummings.

Cummings and Monaghan both showed up wearing bridesmaid dresses for the occasion. During the episode, Philipps revealed that while they were shooting the movie, she had to fly from their filming location in Scotland to Los Angeles for her “actual wedding.”

“You were planning it literally from afar, the whole film!” Monaghan, 43, said.

“Mark and I were planning a surprise wedding, I didn’t wear a ring and we didn’t anyone we were getting married,” Philipps explained. “We just had invited all of our friends to this surprise birthday party. They thought they were coming to surprise me. But the plan was always that I would show up in this dress — as you can see, it’s a real showstopper — and then we would say, ‘Surprise is on you, we’re getting married right now!'”

“And then I got cast in Made of Honor and how could I say no to a job that’s so good,” she continued. “They assured me that it wouldn’t be a big deal and the schedule would work out, and the schedule did not work out. I was in literally the furthest place on Earth.”

“The day before your wedding, we were shooting on an actual swamp,” Cummings, 36, recalled. “I spent most of the day holding a net over Busy’s face so that she didn’t get bug bites on her face!”

“Yes. I really pulled out my wedding dress from 12 years ago and wore it on my show tonight,” Philipps wrote on Instagram Wednesday night alongside then-and-now photos of her in the dress. “It basically fit except my stupid upper rib cage which grew after my 2 babies. No one tells you about that s—. But babies expand your rib cage so, just be aware. This is a PSA.”

One photo showed Philipps wearing the dress on the late night show, while the other was a sweet shot of her on her wedding day.

Philipps’ stylist Erica Cloud commented on the post, writing, “But we got that zipper up AND the belt was loose so…that’s a WIN.”

Philipps and Silverstein share two daughters, 10-year-old Birdie Leigh and 5-year-old Cricket Pearl.
