A survey carried out by Conde Nast Brides has listed the most popular celebrity wedding gowns and Grace Kelly topped the list as the most stylish bride of all time.

The late actress-turned-princess didn’t have a big designer name to make her dress, but instead had a dress made by Helen Rose, a costume maker in the film industry. Grace Kelly's classic lace design is followed by gowns worn by Duchess of Cambridge, Victoria Beckham, Salma Hayek and Princess Diana.

Duchess Kate is second on the list, who at the Royal Wedding to Prince William in 2011 wore a stunning white gown by Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen reminiscent of Grace Kelly's iconic gown. Singer-turned-designer Beckham, who wore a Vera Wang number with a gold and diamond tiara when she married footballer David in 1999, is fourth.

Elizabeth Taylor made it into the list twice. The late British-American actress takes the fifth place for the gown she wore for her first (of seven) wedding to hotel heir Conrad Hilton in 1950, and 15th place for her third marriage to film producer Mike Todd in 1957.

The top 20 also features Carolyn Bassette, Mia Farrow, Princess Diana of Wales, Madonna, Katie Holmes, Priscilla Presley and Princess Anne.


Surprisingly, British supermodel Kate Moss, who wore  a John Galliano vintage-inspired dress, didn’t make it to top of the list, nor did newly-wed Kim Kardashian who wore a Givenchy number designed by Ricardo Tisci for her marriage to Kanye West.
