10 Most Gorgeous Celeb Brides


Grace Kelly

Actress Grace Kelly married Monaco's Prince Rainier in 1956. Her long-sleeved, fitted bodice was studded in seed pearls and made from Brussels lace that was more than a century old! The dress was designed by costume designer Helen Rose and was a parting gift from MGM, Kelly's former movie studio. The ivory peau de soie dress, made by more than three dozen seamstresses over a period of six weeks, was made of 25 yards of silk taffeta and 100 yards of silk net. Kelly's classic wedding day style wouldn't be complete without including something blue, satisfied by the many tiny satin blue bows that covered her petticoats.
