Diana Spencer

Diana Spencer married Prince Charles in London's St. Paul's Cathedral on July 29, 1981. Her ivory gown has been called the world's most famous dress. It's known for its 25-foot train, made from 150 yards of silk. To this day, it's the longest train that's ever been worn at a royal wedding. The gown was made from six sumptuous fabrics, including silk taffeta and tulle crinoline, and cost about $14,000. David and Elizabeth Emanuel, who helped Diana get into her dress on her wedding day, designed the legendary gown.

TLC Takeaway: A variety of fabrics create a rich, unique look. Shop for gowns in fabrics that complement your style and the season, and add interest to plain gowns with textured fabric belts.
