Grace Kelly, 1956
The wedding dress of Grace Kelly has become the ultimate emblem of elegance in the bridal world. From the dainty buttoned bodice to the intricate lace design, if there’s one dress that fits the definition of perfection it’s Grace Kelly’s. After a long courtship, Grace Kelly married Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956. Her exquisite dress was designed by Helen Rose, a costume designer who worked in the wardrobe department of MGM and was crafted by over 30 seamstresses. Kelly wore a simple pair of pearl earrings to adorn her wedding look. When you’re dress is a spectacle of awe in itself, keep your jewellery minimal and classy.
Bianca Jagger, 1971
Style attracts style. It’s no wonder Bianca Jagger is on our list when her husband Mick made our list of the most stylish grooms. The two were a vision of fashion finesse at their rather chaotic wedding in the French Riviera. With Mick channelling some upscaled 70s rock and roll edge, Bianca looked just as striking dressed in a bright white Yves Saint Laurent tuxedo two piece and a large white hat. Hats will soon become the hottest wedding accessory. Last year Danish actress Emma Leth strolled down the aisle wearing the iconic oversized Jacquemus straw hat. Why not set the trends yourself, starting with your wedding? People will be recounting a moment that iconic for years to come, much like Bianca’s wedding attire.
Kate Middleton, 2011
The royal wedding was truly a fairytale made a reality. Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011 at Westminster Abbey, televised in front of the whole world. A venue as lavish as one of England’s historical landmarks needs a pretty extraordinary dress to live up to the momentous occasion… and of course it did not disappoint. Designed by Sarah Burton at Alexander McQueen, Kate Middleton’s gown was fashioned from sleek satin and luscious lace. Kate looked like the quintessential princess young girls read about in fairytales. Her Cartier tiara was lent to the Duchess of Cambridge by the Queen herself, and her diamond earrings were bespoke made to resemble her family coat of arms. Whilst this iconic bridal style seems unattainable, some luxury diamond jewellery will have you radiating regality just like Kate.
Anne Hathaway, 2012
Actress Anne Hathaway looked radiant in her blush Valentino wedding gown. Putting a contemporary twist on her old vintage glamour style gown, the pink hues of her dress glowed in the sunset light. Anne Hathaway’s vintage lace headband veil was the cherry on top of her gorgeous bridal look. Keeping her accessories minimal with just a sleek diamond tennis bracelet, the actress’ look was perfectly balanced. If you, like Anne Hathaway, love old school vintage glamour, then a lace headpiece is the perfect accessory for you. Keep your jewellery traditional with diamonds and pearls and leave the wedding party speechless.
Poppy Delevnigne, 2014
Why have one wedding when you can have two? And you know what double wedding means… double dresses! Poppy Delevingne had two different wedding gowns for her separate weddings. The first, a custom-made Chanel couture gown with floral embellishment, was a classic pick for her traditional English church ceremony. The detachable skirt meant she could party in style for her A-list drenched reception. Her second gown, a gorgeous and colourful Pucci dress was adorned in lilac, lemon and sky blue flowers. Adopting a bohemian aesthetic was the perfect look to channel amongst the vibrant Moroccan backdrop. Whether you’re a boho goddess or traditional British rose, take a leaf out of Poppy’s book and harness some floral finesse on your wedding day.
Solange Knowles, 2014
Solange’s bridal look send the fashion world into a frenzy, look how powerful and strong she looks! Crisp, clean and structural, Solange channelled contemporary elegance on her wedding day. Wearing a chic white cape and gown by Kenzo for her official ceremony and changing into a jumpsuit designed by Stéphane Rolland, her special day was full of hipster twists and personal touches. Creating strong accents with her bold red lipstick and gold cuffs, this truly was an unforgettable bridal look. The vibrant backdrop of New Orleans was the perfect setting to pull off this next-level wedding. Follow suit - in a jumpsuit like Solange perhaps.
Angelina Jolie, 2014
Angelina’s intimate wedding to Brad Pitt took place in a French Chateau and was full of personal touches. The affair compiled of about 20 guests, and was for the most part organised by the couple’s six children. In classic Angelina Jolie style, her wedding attire was far from conventional. The gown itself - custom-made by Luigi Massi of Atelier Versace - was simple and unfussy, classically Angelina. However the veil was the true object of admiration, embroidered with artwork by the couple’s children. Intimate weddings make for extra-special narratives, and Jolie’s stylish wedding ensemble epitomizes the whole occasion.
Amal Clooney, 2018
When human rights barrister Amal Alamuddin wed George Clooney in the city of romance, the world had much to swoon over. The wedding took place in Venice over a weekend of festivities. For the star-studded ceremony, Amal wore a custom-made Oscar de la Renta lace gown, emanating traditional elegance. However, it was her outfit for the civil ceremony that really caught our eye. Wearing a slick white two-piece and matching hat, this simple ensemble exudes confidence. If your style resides in the simple, make sure you go for a knockout tailored piece like Amal and the confidence will follow.
