Most Iconic Wedding Dresses in History

Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton

In Montreal on March 15th, 1964, Elizabeth Taylor married Richard Burton. The couple met on the set of Cleopatra. Cleopatra’s costume designer, Irene Sharaff, designed Taylor’s now iconic babydoll dress. She completed the look with hyacinths and lilies of the valley weaved into a dramatic braided updo and accented the dress with a diamond and emerald Bulgari brooch. This marriage ended about 10 years later. However, when Liz and Dick decided they couldn’t live without each other they remarried on October 10, 1975. Their second marriage ended about a year later.

Fun Fact: It’s well known that Liz had a thing for jewelry. “The only word Elizabeth knows in Italian is Bulgari” Richard said. In fact her jewelry collection alone sold at auction for a record-breaking $115.9 million.
