If bling is your thing, take your red carpet wedding dress inspiration from Angelina Jolie. Her Versace gown was delicately embellished with pearl beads, which is a bold choice for the By The Sea film premier. Column gowns look perfect on lean brides, and work particularly well on petite ladies by elongating the body, instantly adding height.

If you have a flare for drama, seek inspiration from Lady Gaga, whose look is a little more subdued here. Azzedine Alaia was her designer of choice, but maybe ditch the haute washing up gloves! For a stand-out look, choose a ballgown, perfect for brides who’ve been dreaming of a fairy tale inspired big day.
