We all love a Royal Wedding; we only have to look at the two billion people across the world who
tuned in to watch Wills and Kate get married last year for proof of that. The world watched in
anticipation as it was finally revealed what Miss Middleton was wearing to wed her prince. One of
the most interesting parts of any wedding is seeing what the bride will choose to wear for her big
In fact, we never tire of debating who the best dressed celebrity brides are. To prove how much we love a good old analysis into the wedding gowns of the rich and famous, here are four of the best dressed celebrity brides ever.
Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi
Talk about wedding gowns and bridesmaid dresses complimenting one another, in 2008 Ellen
DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi caused quite a stir when they both wore white Zac Posen outfits to
their wedding. While Portia opted for the more classic ballerina-inspired dramatic backless gown,
her partner Ellen wore a stunning outfit consisting of a white vest, white jacket and white trousers.
It would take a staunchly stubborn anti-monarchist or someone clueless about style and fashion
to disagree that Kate Middleton was one of the best dressed celebrity brides of all time. Kate’s
stunningly beautiful traditional white wedding gown was given that ultra touch of class and intrigue
with the beautiful lace trim covering the bride’s shoulders and arms.
What made Kate’s dress particularly sublime was the dress her sister, Pippa wore. Bridesmaid dresses
are of vital importance to a wedding and can help enhance a wedding gown; which was the
case in the royal wedding of 2011. The silk, white column gown hugged Pippa Middleton’s enviable
figure and contrasted beautifully to the traditional wide-flowing gown of the bride – a true match
made in heaven!
The fashion diva star is never shy of expressing herself through her choice of clothing, so why would
this change at her wedding? In 2002, Gwen married rock star Gavin Rossdale in a shockingly pink,
girly and punk-style wedding dress that the singer had designed herself.
Whilst bridesmaid dresses can be expensive, wedding gowns are notoriously pricey and none more
so than Elizabeth Taylor’s iconic wedding dress. In 1950, the legendary film star married her first
husband, Nicky Hilton, at a lavish Hollywood ceremony. Elizabeth’s basque-waisted gown cost a vast
$1,500, a phenomenal amount in those days.
