The Three Big Dresses of 2011

2011 saw the weddings of some our most iconic couples – with one capturing the hearts and imagination of billions, another just inciting confusion and furore and then another creating a cult-like following. What we are interested in, however, is... which dress was your favourite?

Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge (Kate Middleton)
Kate chose a classic, timeless lace wedding gown by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen. Elegant and sophisticated, we loved her teardrop earrings and simple but feminine hairstyle. Inspired by Grace Kelly’s wedding dress, many A-listers have chosen this kind of look with the lace detail around the bust/necline, including Ivanka Trump. We loved the detail and Kate's dress!

Kim Kardashian
This dress just had to be mentioned. Firstly, because its Vera Wang and secondly it has to be the most publicised quicky marriage in history. But enough bout Kimmie’s failure to commit, we are talking about the dress. Personally, we felt it could have been more fitting around the bustline, and we weren’t a fan of the headdress, but overall it epitomises the fairy princess bride if that's the look you are going for...a bit 80s of you ask us...

Bella Swan Cullen
Ok, so love it or hate it, but Twilight is big. And so is Bella’s dress, designed for the movie by Carolina Herrera, but reproduced for the wedding market by Alfredo Angelo. This dress has a vintage, romantic appeal with its long sleeves, and soft Chantilly-inspired lace appliqué on the back. This is a very pretty dress and we love the idea of it for a winter wedding.

  1. I love the buttons all the way down on the Twilight dress but somehow the dress as a whole has a weird alien/futuristic look!

    I agree about the bossom muffin top on Kim and personally I think someone so beautiful could have pulled off something more exciting and extravagant. Kate's the winner for me!
