There are few things more breath-taking than a bride in a beautiful wedding gown. Some designs, however, are copied again and again. From modest to chic, here are some of our favorite wedding dresses from the women we looked up to.
5) Gloria Vanderbilt
Only 17 years old when she married Pat DiCicco in 1941, her fresh face and determination to move on from the “poor little rich girl” persona made her a hit with the press. Her dress captures the originality and elegance of 1940s fashion. The rouched, sweetheart neckline in satin, combined with the cap sleeves and pleated details, made her look enchanting in a chic way. Check out the newsreel about her below.
