The guests had Star in their eyes on Saturday, as The View cohost Star Jones married banker Al Reynolds in a celebrity-heavy Park Avenue bash.

Vows were exchanged at St. Bartholomew's Church, with the 42-year-old bride wearing a white Reem Acra-designed strapless wedding dress with a 27-foot train, before the festivities moved next door, to the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel, where Patti LaBelle performed.

The guest list included Sen. Hillary Clinton, Spike Lee, Chris Rock, Kim Cattrall, Natalie Cole, Vivica A. Fox, Holly Robinson Peete, Kelly Ripa, Rick and Kathy Hilton, and, from The View, Barbara Walters, Meredith Vieira and Joy Behar.

"I smiled a lot," Walters told the Associated Press. "I was happy for her. She had the biggest smile I've ever seen."

Also the biggest train, which was "so long, it took about seven people to carry it," said friend and guest Valerie Simpson, songwriter and half of the R&B duo Ashford and Simpson.
