The fashion choices of celebrities are regularly discussed, often criticised and always emulated. Weddings are no exception; in fact, marital choices are often the most intriguing of subjects , perhaps because of their deeply personal nature. But who is the most stylish bride of all time?

In the run-up to our third Brides The Show we turned to you, our discerning readers, to vote on the matter and finally settle that question.


Over 12,000 votes reveal that Grace Kelly's iconic wedding dress remains your favourite, with the Duchess of Cambridge and her Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen gown came in a close second.

Her Majesty the Queen was voted 13th most stylish bride, beating off style icon Kate Moss who came in at number 32.


Prolific bride Elizabeth Taylor made the list four times, ranking 5th for her first wedding to Conrad Hilton, 15th for her marriage to Mike Todd, 37th for her first marriage to Richard Burton and 83rd for when she wed Michael Wilding.

Also featuring in the top five were Carolyn Bassette and her slinky Narciso Rodriguez dress (she came in third) and in fourth place is Victoria Beckham and her frothy Vera Wang gown.

Royal weddings continue to capture our imaginations, and seemingly our hearts too. Queen Elizabeth, Grace Kelly, Princess Anne and Lady Diana Spencer's bridal gowns (as well as that of the Duchess of Cambridge) came tops for their relevant decades. Priscilla Wagner, Carolyn Bessette and Salma Hayek the exceptions for the 1950's, 1990's and 2000's respectively. 


To see the full list click here, or perhaps muse over the rather dreamy dress of Mrs Clooney which was revealed yesterday...

For those of you looking to make your bridal look as iconic as that of these stars, can we suggest you look to the Brides The Show catwalk which will feature top designer dresses all expertly styled by Brides fashion director Bryony Toogood. We'll see you there!
