  1. Stunning celebrity brides

    When it comes to weddings, celebrities don't dissapoint. From Gwen Stefani to Princess Diana, take a look back at the most iconic bridal gowns ever.

    Gwen Stefani
    Christian Dior designer John Galliano created this dip-dyed silk faille gown specifically for the singer's 2002 marriage to rocker Gavin Rossdale, and it's a triumph of personal style — equal parts girlie and punk, just like the pop star herself.

  2. Audrey Hepburn

    She played a water sprite in a 1954 Broadway production of "Ondine," then chose a decidedly elfin tea-length, chiffon-sleeved Balmain for her wedding to co-star Mel Ferrer later that year. A wreath of fresh flowers completed the magical effect.

  3. Bianca Porez Morena de Macias

    The soon-to-be Bianca Jagger wore a white YSL "Le Smoking" jacket over a long white skirt to marry Mick at St. Tropez Town Hall in 1971. Amazing, right?

  4. Jada Pinkett

    Jada married Will Smith on December 31, 1997, in a unique (and very of-the-moment) silk and crushed velvet mock turtleneck gown designed by Badgely Mischka.

  5. Yoko Ono

    The multi-media artist married John Lennon in Gibraltar in 1969, clad in a very counter-culture ensemble: a textured mini-dress, kneesocks, and a white felt hat.

  6. Katie Holmes

    Holmes once confessed that she fantasized about marrying Tom Cruise when she was a little girl — and the ornate, off-the-shoulder Armani she wore to their 2006 Italian wedding may very well have been the sort of gown she imagined wearing. Adorned with Swarovski crystals, embroidery, and a silk train, and topped with a floor-length veil made of ivory tulle, this was a true dream dress.

  7. Jewel

    One might have expected the pop/folk singer to choose a slightly more glittery gown for her 2008 wedding — she was, after all, marrying a rodeo star. But the form-fitting lace Monique Lhullier gown that Jewel wore when she said her "I dos" with Ty Murray was simply gorgeous.

  8. Cindy Crawford

    In 1998, the already-flawless supermodel chose a simple John Galliano slipdress for her barefoot beach wedding to Rande Gerber. It's unclear if she bothered with the old, borrowed, or blue — perhaps people this good-looking don't need good luck.

  9. Mia Farrow

    At 21, she personified the adjective gamine: Her close-cropped hair perfectly complemented her delicate features. And the ensemble she wore to wed Frank Sinatra in 1966 — a pale mini-dress paired with a short, boxy matching jacket — likewise balanced sweet with chic.

  10. Portia De Rossi

    Both of the brides wore Zac Posen at their 2008 ceremony: Ellen DeGeneres opted for a tailored ensemble consisting of white pants, a dress shirt, and a white vest, while DeRossi chose a dramatic (and beautiful) backless gown with a ballerina-inspired pale pink tulle skirt.

  11. Marilyn Monroe

    They seemed, to some, like a match made in heaven: the big-screen siren and the baseball star. While Monroe's marriage to Joe DiMaggio didn't even last a year, the fur-collared brown wool suit she wore to their 1954 ceremony at San Francisco's City Hall was utterly timeless.

  12. Elizabeth Taylor

    Elizabeth Taylor's "Cleopatra" co-star Richard Burton was her fifth husband. (And her sixth — they remarried less than two years after their first divorce.) So it makes sense that, in 1964, she decided against a traditional white dress. Instead, Taylor opted for a round-necked daffodil yellow chiffon mini topped with a headdress made of white hyacinths and lilies of the valley. (She wore green to their do-over in 1976.)

  13. Lady Diana Spencer

    Yes, her puff-sleeved, ruffled, silk taffeta gown — decorated with lace, embroidery, sequins, and around 10,000 tiny pearls — wasn't exactly understated. But then neither was anything else about Diana's royal wedding to Prince Charles in 1981.

  14. Jacqueline Bouvier

    The future first lady (and fashion icon) wore a voluminous ivory silk taffeta gown by the designer Ann Lowe when she married John F. Kennedy in 1953. A portrait neckline and wide, embellished skirt emphasized Jackie's small waist, and an heirloom lace veil, which originally belonged to her grandmother, completed the super-romantic ensemble.

  15. Ivanka Trump

    Donald's daughter was reportedly inspired by Grace Kelly's classic gown: She converted to Judaism in order to marry Jared Kushner in 2009, and required a slightly more covered-up style. Vera Wang was happy to oblige. "I seized on the chance to do a dress that wasn't naked," the designer said at the time.

  16. Grace Kelly

    In 1956, she played a princess onscreen in "The Swan" and then assumed the role in real life: The pearl-studded, long-sleeved gown she wore to marry Monaco's Prince Rainier was a parting gift from Grace Kelly's former studio, MGM. Conceived by costume designer Helen Rose — and constructed by three dozen seamstresses over six weeks — the elaborate silk faille, silk tulle, and rose point lace confection was pure Hollywood fantasy.
