3. Meghan Markle, 2017
How gorgeous is this engagement photo? Meghan donned a stunning Ralph & Russo gown for the pictures, which were released by Kensington Palace. The floor-length black tulle gown was straight from the autumn/winter '16 collection and featured a silk organza skirt and a lace bodice with intricate gold feather threadwork. It's estimated that the dress cost about $75,000.

Some also criticized the dress for being too sheer for an important occasion like an engagement shoot. However, in an interview with Entertainment Tonight, the couple's engagement photographer, Alexi Lubomirski, revealed his surprise when he heard about the reactions. "To be honest, we tried on a couple of different things and that was just one that she felt comfortable in. So we weren't really thinking, 'Is it nude?' We just thought, 'Feel comfortable and let's make some nice pictures.'"

Risqué or not, we think the duchess looked gorgeous in the frock.
