Who can forget the only iconic wedding dress that wasn’t actually worn for a wedding? Audrey Hepburn’s in the 1957 movie Funny Face started the tea-length trend featuring capped sleeves, bateau neckline, and ball gown skirt. Three years earlier, Hepburn wore a wreath full of fresh roses in place of a veil or headpiece at her first marriage to Mel Ferrer. Her tea-length wedding dress designed by Pierre Balmain was almost identical to the one worn in Funny Face, but instead had wide chiffon long-sleeves. This utterly feminine style is short and sweet and shows off your ankles unlike most other traditional (long) wedding dresses. Plus, an added bonus, it’s easy to dance in! Check out our favorite look-a-likes above.
