It’s not just day-to-day fashion you can look to the stars for. Even the celebs who haven’t yet tied the knot can be great sources of style inspiration for your wedding look. Take a look at these über fashionable trendsetters to get ideas for your wedding.

1. Victoria Beckham
If structure and tailoring are more your thing, then take Victoria Beckham as your style inspiration. Known for her neat and simple style, Posh Spice won’t be seen without her high heels and statement bag. In terms of your wedding look, think about Audrey Hepburn’s style and choose a clean-cut shift wedding dress or a fitted column wedding dress. A glowing tan and non-flowing fabrics are the recipe to Victoria’s look.
2. Olivia Palermo
If it’s a sweet and fresh-faced wedding look you’re after then look no further than the butter-wouldn’t-melt style of fashionista Olivia Palermo. The trendsetter opts for classic looks with a twist, by adding pops of colour or statement accessories. Copy her style by opting for a neat ballerina up-do and keeping make-up simple but with defined eyebrows and a bold lip.
3. Kate Middleton
First things first: give your hair some TLC to boost its condition and shine, then choose a bouncy blow-dry for your big day. Then it’s time to look for elegant yet practical heels and a flowing, floor-length dress with intricate details such as beading, lace or applique – or opt for a more demure knee-length number with a bolero or tailored overcoat. Complete your wedding look with a small but perfectly formed clutch bag to add a bit of glamour– a bouquet isn’t necessarily crucial.

4. Zooey Deschanel
If you’re a 60s chick at heart then Zooey’s your number one girl for style inspiration. Go for a flirty fringe, loose waves and complete the look with red or pink lips. Wear a bold flick of liquid eyeliner and accessorise with pearls around your neck. A-line, tea-style wedding dresses are the go-to style choice here, with a peep toe heel to give it that 60s edge.
5. Mary-Kate Olsen
Laidback hippy style is that of Mary-Kate Olsen. Channel her look on your wedding day by choosing a centre parting and loose waves – even opting for hair extensions if your hair isn’t quite long enough for that hippy look. Take a small section of hair from either side of the parting and either plait or simply secure with some clips, then cover with flowers. Opt for kimono sleeves and a floor length skirt that trails along the floor, then complete with a selection of mismatched rings and a smoky eye.
6. Scarlett Johansson
Channel red carpet Hollywood glamour through Scarlett Johansson’s style choices. Choose a fitted lace wedding dress with a cut-out back to really show off your figure. Complete the look with glitzy earrings, a bouffant up-do and keep your make-up emphasis on your lips. A halter neck wedding dress with a sweetheart neckline and a slim belt would also work here, but whatever you choose, makes sure it’s slim-fitting and sexy.
7. Sarah Jessica Parker
Work with Sarah Jessica Parker’s kooky style sense and incorporate some creative elements into your wedding look. Think statement hair accessories such as a large flower or even a miniature top hat with a lace overlay, or add some colour with a bright sash on your wedding dress. The shoes really matter here so go beyond the classic wedding shoes and choose brighter, more detailed fashion heels instead.

8. Florence Welch
Create a whimsical wedding look using Florence and the Machine’s Florence Welch as your style inspiration. Flowing fabrics, jewel tones and unusual jewellery all make this ethereal look work. Make a statement and wear a hippy headpiece that sits on your parting and goes across your forehead, or braid your hair around your head to create a Grecian goddess-esque look. Your make-up is all about bold lips and perhaps even a spot of experimentation with glitter eye make-up.
9. Lana Del Rey
Look like an American sweetheart with Lana Del Rey as your style inspiration. Wear a bold flower headpiece made up of different blooms and keep that liquid eyeliner to hand. Choose fresh, pastel tones for your bridesmaids, preferably in flirty A-line halter dresses. Marilyn Monroe is another style inspiration for this 50s-60s look, so choose tumbling waves or a bouffant up-do – and don’t forget to pout!
10. Michelle Obama
Simple yet elegant – the perfect attributes of a bride. Michelle Obama always looks a million dollars, so use this immaculate and groomed look as inspiration for your wedding day. Choose a fitted dress but one that still has structure – so no clingy fabrics or bodycon styles. Perhaps choose one with a shawl collar, a one shoulder sleeve or full skirt. Have your hair blow dried to hold its shape around your face and be sure to give your body a top to toe buff to ensure your skin is as supple and glowing as Michelle’s.
