FASHION: Go Wedding Gowns, Go!

Since bride is always the center of attraction on her wedding day, the wedding gown will always be the second to be noticed. That is why every bride-to-be keeps their self busy, together with her bridesmaid what will be the best wedding gown for her. 

So on this 6th part of the wedding installment, I am going to post my 10 personal choices for the best wedding gowns, which I adore that moment I laid my eyes on them, not to mention of course my gown, 'cause it's exceptional +_+.

Anyhow, allow me to share my 10 best gowns of all times:

10. Kate Middleton
Over 2 billion people watched the royal wedding on April 29, 2011, and Kate Middleton didn’t disappoint. For her walk down the aisle, the new Duchess of Cambridge wore a gown designed by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen. “Miss Middleton worked closely with Sarah Burton in formulating the design of her dress,” the Clarence House said. The hand-cut English lace and French Chantilly lace dress was paired with matching Alexander McQueen shoes.


9. Liz Taylor
In 1950, Liz Taylor took her first trip (of seven) down the aisle, marrying hotel heir Conrad "Nicky" Hilton in a Hollywood ceremony. Her silk, basque-waisted gown cost a then-staggering $1500 (almost $14,000 in today's dollars) to make and was a gift from her studio, MGM.


8. 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.

7. 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.


6. 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.


5. 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.


4. Natalie Wood
When she wed Robert Wagner in 1957, Natalie Wood looked stunning and of-the-moment in a face-framing lace hood, white cocktail dress and ballet flats.


3. Nicole Kidman
In 2006 Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban said “I do” in Sydney. The red carpet style star captivated in an ivory silk chiffon gown by Nicolas Ghesquiere for Balenciaga and Fred Leighton antique diamond-and-pearl earrings.


2. Alicia Keys
Alicia Keys looked goddess-like in an ivory silk, Grecian-inspired Vera Wang gown when she married Swizz Beatz at their 2010 Mediterranean affair.


1. Grace Kelly (My Personal Favorite)
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.










And so these are the wedding gowns that are stunning, amazing, classic, timeless deigns. You can choose one of these, make them as an inspiration for your own gown, for they are all perfect. But always remember, every bride will look perfect if her heart is full of love, and happiness even if she will just wear a simple, plain white dress. +_+
