Selma Blair Weds a Zappa

Selma Blair has officially been Zappa’d.

The Legally Blonde actress and rock-scion beau Ahmet Zappa have capped their six-month whirlwind romance with a walk down the aisle.

The couple swapped vows at Carrie Fisher’s Beverly Hills home on January 24. The nuptials were originally meant to take place at the Ritz-Carlton in nearby Marina Del Rey, but the actress and her rocker fiancÚ changed locations at the last minute.

On hand to witness the traditional Jewish ceremony were a small circle of family and friends, including Zappa’s sister, Moon Unit, and brother, Dweezil, who was accompanied by gal-pal and cohost of the Food Network TV show Dweezil and Lisa, Lisa Loeb.

According to People magazine, the bride wore a white satin tailor-made Karl Lagerfeld gown while the groom wore a black suit.

For the reception, Blair changed into black version of the same dress as the 70-plus guests danced to disco tunes and dined on grilled salmon and a three-layer coconut wedding cake.

It’s a first marriage for both. Blair was previously linked to Rushmore star Jason Schwartzman, while Zappa was tied to Charmed thesp Rose McGowan.

The engagement was first announced on the Friendster Website on September 19 by Zappa himself, who wrote, "I’m getting married...she said yes. I’m so happy. Love az."

Zappa’s dabbled in show biz, singing on Dweezil’s albums and appearing as a judge on Star Search and a panelist on Hollywood Squares. He’s also guest-starred on MTV’s now-defunct New Tom Green Show, as well as The Jamie Kennedy Experiment, Roseanne and Growing Pains. And he starred in the 1990 movie Pump Up the Volume.

Blair’s claim to fame was the title role on the WB’s short-lived series Zoe..., originally called Zoe, Duncan, Jack and Jane. She auditioned for the TV role of Buffy the Vampire Slayer but lost out to Sarah Michelle Gellar. The two actresses later swapped an infamous wet and sloppy one in the film Cruel Intentions.

She most recently starred in the comedies A Guy Thing and Legally Blonde. Blair has two movie in the pipeline for 2004. In April she’ll star in the feature-film adaptation of the comic-book character Hellboy, about the son of Satan produced in a Nazi experiment gone wrong, who’s later raised to do good by Americans. Blair stars as Liz Sherman, a pyrokinetic love interest for the bad boy turned good. She’s also set to appear in the family dramedy Hating Her opposite Johnny Knoxville, but that film doesn’t have a release date yet.
