    It has long been thought that wearing a white wedding dress was traditional, as the colour white represented purity and virginity, but that is not strictly true. Although it seems to be the norm now with the general public (celebrity weddings have always been a bit…different), originally the colour blue was thought to be associated with purity, faithfulness and to represent the Virgin Mary.

    The first white wedding dress ever documented in history was worn by Princess Phillippa of England in her marriage to Eric of Pomerania in 1406. But white wedding dresses didn’t start trending until Queen Victoria married Albert of Saxe-Coburg in what we now consider to be, the traditional white wedding gown.

    But what do we consider to be the most glamorous dresses of all time? With the vanity of modern day celebrities it seems that each married is designed to out-do its predecessors, so there are a variety of gorgeous dresses to choose from. Some celebrities even opt for two or three wedding dresses to wear throughout their ceremony. Here are some examples of wedding dresses that we think make up the ‘glamour shortlist’ for iconic dresses.

    From the exotic headdress to the elegant floral designed sleeves that extend down to the fingertips, Brigitte Nielsen designed this entire wedding dress herself when she married actor Sylvester Stallone in 1985. Unfortunately love was not in the air for long, as they divorced in 1987 after Brigitte had an affair with director Tony Scott.

    Fighting against tradition, Bianca wore a white dress suit to her wedding, tailored by Tommy Nutter who had previously designed suits for other big names such as Yoko Ono, The Rolling Stones and Elton John. Bianca married musician Jagger while heavily pregnant with their daughter Jade.
