GREY'S ANATOMY star Ellen Pompeo has defended her decision to dress down for her 2007 wedding.
The actress wore a black Yves Saint Laurent dress and boots as she married record producer Christopher Ivery last year (Nov07).
And the star admits she snubbed the traditional white gown and veil because she always wears stunning dresses for work.
She tells Allure magazine, "I get to dress up all the time. I completely understand women wanting a wedding, because most people don't get to dress up in gorgeous dresses and have their hair and make-up done.
"I, however, am fortunate enough that I get to put on beautiful dresses and make-up and jewels all the time."
