Have you ever looked at a Celebrities wedding and said "I wish I had that dress"? Of course most of us don't have access to celebrity designers like Monique Lhuillier or Christian Dior, but that doesn't mean we can't look like we do!
Michelle's Bridal & Tuxedo
in Urbana, IL carries many top name designers which have stunning designs and similar elements to those we love on our favorite celebs!
Here's a few of our favorite celebrity look alikes:
Everyone's favorite Bride and Groom of 2011-Prince William of Cambridge and Catherine Middleton. The Duchesses look has inspired hundreds of designers to bring back sleeves. The above (right) Essense of Australia
gown features a similar deep V neckline, illusion top, and full ball gown skirt. A perfect modern adaption of Kate's gown. You'll feel just like a Princess wearing this look alike.
Stunning actress Grace Kelly, who married Prince
Rainer III of Monaco in 1956 wore a peau de soie gown with long, modest lace sleeves. Today's Brides looking for a similarly charming look may choose this Ellis Bridal
gown (left) offering a beautiful sheer long sleeve, high neck and ball gown skirt. In the past few seasons many designers have been trending towards more modest pieces in their collections, and in 2014 sleeves and high illusion necklines have come back in style. I bet the Princess of Monaco didn't know she'd be a fashion icon in 2014.
Another late fashion icon was none other than Audrey Hepburn. Although not from here real marriage, this fashionable gown worn for the movie "Funny Face" has inspired many modern look alike gowns. Pictured above (right) is another gown by Ellis Bridal
, featuring a short full skirt and sheer illusion strap. The increasingly popular short gowns have been the choice of many brides in recent seasons. Brides who choose short dresses say they are "more fun", "sassy" and "easy to wear all day". It's not hard to want to look like Audrey Hepburn either.
Model Kate Moss' beaded John Galliano wedding gown featured bias cut lace and gold beading. Brides wanting that slim fitted look should look no further than the stunningly beaded Essense of Australia gown (left). The elaborate bead work on this gown is definitely star quality. You might even end up on the cover of Vogue wearing this gown.
Gwen Stefani's pink ombre wedding gown was a show stopper, as you would expect. But you can be pretty in pink (or other colors) with designers such as Essesnse of Australia
. The lovely pinkish tone gown above (left) is actually an ivory organza over a moscato pink satin, with a blossom pink sash. Beautiful colors can be added to this or any gown, such as bisque, or orchid, or black among others.
Who could forget the gorgeous Kennedy's! Jackie Bouvier and John F. Kennedy were radiant on their wedding day in 1953. Jackie was wearing a gown by Ann Lowe of brocade silk taffetta. The handmade gown has been said to be one of the most iconic and memorable gowns of all time.
