1. Lady Gaga

White bridal gowns have been the companions of this great diva on countless occasions, from the Oscar Awards to the Cannes Film Festival.

Always giving them her special touch, with the design she used in 2015, for example, she combined it with striking gloves and it was a dress that took 1600 hours and 25 people to embroider.

2. Elle Fanning

For the 2019 Cannes Film Festival Closing Ceremony, the American actress decided to wear a real wedding dress from designer Reem Acra’s Celebration Collection.

3. Priyanka Chopra

Happy to show off the joy of an eternal bride, this actress was not only content to model a white dress for the 2019 Cannes Film Festival but chose one from the bridal line of designer Georges Hobeika.

The tulle dress matched perfectly with the white suit of her husband Nick Jonas, who accompanied her at all times.

4. Keira Knightley

The English actress has been seen in bridal style gowns on countless occasions, but for her, it’s not all about new clothes.

Her own wedding dress is a model designed by Karl Lagerfeld that she has reused on countless red carpets. In fact, she wore it for the first time in 2008 during a party for the Bafta Awards, five years before wearing it for her wedding. The actress stated that she wanted to wear it to be her “something old”.

5. Emily Ratajkowski

The model and actress looked very happy in this dress designed by Vera Wang, famous for her creations for brides.

During this year’s Met Gala, Emily indicated that the dress was inspired by the designer’s line of red bridal gowns.

6. Alessia Cara

The Canadian singer showed up at the 2019 Met Gala in a fluffy dress that could fit into any modern wedding. She added an original touch by wearing sneakers in opposite colors.

7. Winona Ryder

The Stranger Things actress wore a white gown from Alberta Ferretti’s bridal collection in 2011. Would you have added any accessories to it?

8. Alex Borstein

The co-star of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel decided to reuse her own wedding dress for the 2018 Emmy Awards.

The actress stated that the marriage didn’t last, but the dress did, a twenty-year-old gray silk model that she decided to reuse to give it a new meaning. Do you also have any dresses that are more than ten years old? Share your photos in the comments!

9. Yara Shahidi

The American actress and model wore a Christian Dior design during this year’s Met Gala and stated that with it she wanted to pay homage to African-American artist Josephine Baker. Together with the veil and gloves, her outfit could serve as inspiration for any bride-to-be.

10. Julia Michaels

The American singer seems to be another artist who enjoys the bridal look. The most recent model was worn during this year’s Grammy Awards gala, combining the colors black and white.

11. Lily Collins

The Emily in Paris star has often been seen in bridal-style gowns, but for the 2019 Met Gala, she chose a long-tailed model with which she paid homage to the look of actress Priscilla Presley on her wedding day.

Bonus: Audrey Hepburn

Lily Collins’ style reminds us of the great icon of style: Audrey Hepburn. This actress was one of the first celebrities to dare to wear a bridal style dress on the red carpet.

She wore the floral Givenchy model during the 1954 Oscars, an occasion in which she also won the statuette.
