Kate Middleton and Prince William wed in 2011, and her dress was made by English designer Sarah Burton, who was the creative director of the luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen. It cost $427,000 and featured lace sleeves and a full skirt along with a silk tulle veil and nine-foot train.

The traditional dress was inspired by designs from the 1950s. One firm made a replica of the dress just hours after Middleton took her car ride to Westminster Abbey.
