Gowns & Suits
On its own, Stacy Martin's lightweight beige Dior gown with embroidered pastel flowers wouldn't look out of place at a resort or outdoor wedding (see our top style tips). Dress it up with a bright red lip and sparkling jewellery and it's instantly well-suited for a ballroom affair, too. mage: @dior/Instagram Thai and Indian stars Araya Alberta Hargate and Deepika Padukone had us seeing double in equally gorgeous sheer caped designs. Hargate, also known as Chompoo, went with Ralph and Russo (the designers might be Meghan Markle's wedding dressmakers!) while Padukone wore Zuhair Murad.

And of course, dazzling jewels (from Chopard, no less). Work this look for a stylish restaurant or poolside wedding. Image: @joansmalls/Instagram Chinese actresses Guan Xiaotong and Guli Nazha went for modern romance in volumninous tulle ballgowns with exquisite floral embroidery - then spiced it up with plunging necklines, ultra-sheer layers and sultry red lips. Images: @paolo_sebastian/Instagram and @zuhairmuradofficial/Instagram The Oscar-winning actress' Dior dress, with a bodice inspired by the Surrealist cage and feather-like ruffles, exudes a laid-back feel while oozing chic modernity - perfect for the contemporary bride seeking unconventional details.

Consider a nude bodysuit if you're going for a super sheer dress. Image: @schiaparelli/Instagram Izabel Goulart's leg-baring look might be a tad too revealing for your nuptials but the eye-catching design with extravagant geometric motifs is definite bridal goals. For your big day, consider a mini skirt or lengthier shorts. Image: @zuhairmuradofficial/Instagram Aishwarya Rai Bachchan has been bringing her A-game to the Cannes Film Festival for years (remember last year's huge blue Cinderella-esque ballgown by Michael Cinco?). This year she descended upon the red carpet in a structured curve-hugging design with a lovely mint-hued overskirt by Rami Kadi - not quite as voluminous but no less glamorous. Image: @ramikadi/Instagram If you're planning to breeze down the aisle looking like a fairy tale dream, then take your cue from Celina Jade in Dior. We can imagine this airy blush ballgown, designed by the brand's artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri, at a romantic ballroom or glamorous garden soiree. We love the juxtaposition of the statement choker against her ethereal dress. Image: @dior/Instagram There were plenty of see-through dresses on the red carpet but while most of them gunned for ethereal charm and softness, Spanish model and presenter Nieves Alvarez turned heads in this boldly detailed Elie Saab gown that had graphic black and jewel-toned detailing.
