Lace and leather have never been more appropriate.
If you're about to marry Christian Grey, No. 8 on Forbes' Fictional 15—the wealthiest characters in, well, fiction—we think you can splurge on the wedding dress. So, it comes to no surprise that the leading lady of the Fifty Shades franchise, Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), will be walking down the aisle in none other than Monique Lhuillier.
The designer took to Instagram to tease a photo of the much-anticipated wedding scene, in which Jamie Dornan's character is kissing his new bride, adorned in an off-the-shoulder, lace creation. "The climactic final chapter begins Valentine's Day. Can't wait to unveil the dress," the caption reads.
Although a sweeping veil camouflages the dress, we can still see a body-hugging silhouette. Is this the actual dress Anastasia takes her vows in or just something used to market the movie? We're not sure, but let this be a reminder why stars like Reese Witherspoon, Lauren Conrad and Carrie Underwood opted for Lhuillier's designs for their own real-life nuptials.
Even if you aren't going to marry $2.2 billion, what we've learned from movies is that anything goes when it comes to weddings. You can be left at the alter in custom Vivienne Westwood, a la Sarah Jessica Parker in Sex and the City, or be courthouse casual, like Jennifer Lopez in The Wedding Planner. Whatever your scenario, there's a perfect look for you. Let these movie wedding dresses serve as inspiration.
