Spotted: Kelly Clarkson Wears Maria Elena Headpieces

It’s all over the news: Kelly Clarkson is married! The songstress married Brandon Blackstock quietly over the weekend against the very autumn backdrop of Tennessee. Though her wedding is big news, it’s what she wore that’s really making headlines. We can’t take our eyes off the sparkling custom Maria Elena Headpieces headband she wore.
