14. Queen Elizabeth II, 1947
For her marriage to Prince Philip, Queen Elizabeth wore a wedding dress that represented the nation, offering a message of hope. The royal wedding dress designer, Norman Hartnell, was inspired by Botticelli's Allegory of Spring painting and embroidered the gown with garlands of spring flowers.

For her big day, the royal accessorized the look with simple strands of pearl necklaces and delicate earrings. She also wore her hair in a minimal yet elegant style. Her stunning tiara rounded out the gorgeous ensemble.
