Celebrity Wedding Dresses
1. Angelina Jolie
When Angelina Jolie married Brad Pitt in 2014, she said ‘I Do’ in none other than Atelier Versace. Jolie wore a veil covered in an arrangement of doodles designed by their clan of six children. “It was such a special day to share with our children,” she recalls. Beautiful inside and out!
2. Miranda Kerr
Victoria Secret Angel, Miranda Kerr, married Evan Spiegel (the founder of Snapchat) this year in a custom Dior Haute Couture gown designed by the fashion house’s great director, Maria Grazia Chiuri. Kerr’s masterpiece was inspired by Grace Kelly’s 1950’s wedding gown. Miranda wanted something “emotional and simple,” for she believes that “a dress that fully covers you creates a sense of purity and mystery.”
3. Solange Knowles
American musician, model and actress, Solange Knowles, married Alan Ferguson in a Humberto Leon for Kenzo gown. Solange’s wedding was anything but “traditional,” being that she rode a bicycle to attend her parade-style New Orleans ceremony in a jumpsuit. With Beyoncé as her older sister, it’s #SiblingBridalPower at its finest!
4. Queen Victoria
Game changer, Queen Victoria, married Prince Albert in 1840. The white dress she wore to her February wedding quickly went from the aisle to the archive as it sparked the trend and tradition of wearing white wedding gowns. Launching a century-long global trend? Now THAT is iconic.
5. Princess Diana
Diana (Princess of Wales and the people) who married Prince Charles in 1981, was sewn into a dress designed by David and Elizabeth Emanuel. Princess Diana’s train is the longest in royal wedding history, barely fitting in her carriage, at a whopping 25 feet long – and the designer revealed she kept asking for more! Additionally, she wore something old, new, borrowed and blue, checking off all traditional wedding customs.
Queen Bey married Jay-Z almost a decade ago in 2008 in a custom gown by none other than her own mother, Tina Knowles. Bey’s dress, like her wedding, was kept very hush-hush with no media or photographers. Moreover, it wasn’t until the release of her music video for “All Night,” that Beyoncé revealed intimate wedding footage and a peek at her highly-anticipated wedding dress!
7. Gwen Stefani
Popstar, Gwen Stefani, married Gavin Rossdale in Covent Garden 2002 in a John Galliano for Dior dress. Stefani gave the classic white wedding gown a run for it’s money with her custom pink ombré dress. She donated the “piece of art” to Victoria & Albert and the dress was featured in the museum’s 2014 Wedding Dresses exhibition.
8. Kate Middleton
Kate Middleton, The Duchess of Cambridge, married Prince William in 2011, a decade after meeting at university. As the world speculated the designer of the dress throughout their six-month engagement, it wasn’t until her entrance to the venue, Westminster Abbey, that is was revealed – she wore Alexander McQueen by creative director Sarah Burton. Summing it up in one word: WOW.
9. Kate Moss
In 2011, English supermodel, Kate Moss, married Jamie Hince in a stunning starry John Galliano gown, which elegantly highlighted her killer figure and neckline! “[I wanted] a classic Galliano, those chiffon thirties kind. I’ve lived in his dresses for years, and they just make me feel so comfortable. This dress is so much more couture, couture, couture. Oh, my God, the work that’s going into the dress!” Kate said, speaking of the gown.
10. Sofia Vergara
Actress Sofia Vergara married Joe Manganiello in 2015 in a Zuhair Marad hand-embroidered bodice and dress with a secret fully detachable skirt that kept the classic ‘big’ gown silhouette and also allowed her to comfortably hit the dance floor and show off her gorgeous figure at the reception. Functional and fancy for the win!
