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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
When the artist formerly known as Posh Spice married soccer player David Beckham in 1999, she did so in a structured, ballgown-skirted Vera Wang; the trend-setting star may very well have played a role in the subsequent ubiquity of the strapless wedding dress.
The actress was engaged to stuntman David Pope for almost a year, but she ended up planning her 2008 wedding in less than a month—luckily, designer Angela Missoni is a close friend of the bride`s and was happy to whip up this dreamy peach dress
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.
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.
