Your Morning Fashion and Beauty Report: America Ferrera's wedding gown, Julie Benz's engagement ring, Dwyane Wade's watch, Johnny Weir's legs

-- Our Adam Tschorn just returned from covering the men's spring 2012 ready-to-wear shows in Milan and Paris. And some of the fashions were -- as usual -- pretty over-the-top. Who would wear that, I sometimes wonder (think of the fringes at Thom Browne's show or the birds of paradise print at Givenchy. Of course, showing mass appeal garments isn't really the point of the shows, but I digress). Well, in real life, Olympic figure skater Johnny Weir and TV reality star stylist Brad Goreski really wore shorts to a formal charity function in New York Monday night. Weir in particular was attention-grabbing in his tuxedo jacket and short-shorts. [The Cut]

-- America Ferrera married beau Ryan Piers Williams Monday evening wearing a strapless gown by Amsale's Christos label and Fred Leighton earrings. The dress hugged her curves to below the hip, then fell to the floor in a cascade of ruffles. Guests included former "Ugly Betty" castmates Vanessa Williams and Rebecca Romjin, and Blake Lively, with whom Ferrera appeared in "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants." [People]

-- "Dexter" star Julie Benz is sporting a new engagement ring, given to her Sunday by boyfriend Rich Orosco. The Kwiat ring features a handmade platinum and cushion-cut center stone, which sits in a Kwiat signature "floating basket" with a pave diamond frame. [People]
