Want to channel Joan Crawford, Ava Gardner or Bette Davis on your wedding day? Then The White Dress (Laurence King, £24.95) is the book for you. Filled with striking photographs, both black and white and colour, of brides and celebrities through the ages you'll find plenty of inspiration from past fashions for your big day. We'd avoid anything resembling the sequinned hat and suit combo worn by one celebrity (unless you want to be mistaken for the entertainment), but intricately embroidered saris, chic mini-dresses and elegant full-length gowns mean there's something here for every bride.
