Elizabeth Taylor and Conrad Hilton
There may be no one more wiser than the late Elizabeth Taylor when it comes to weddings. The violet-eyed beauty wed a miraculous eight times—twice to Richard Burton—between 1950 and 1991. Now the actress' first wedding gown, which she wore to wed Conrad Hilton in 1950, is up for auction. The dress with the 20-inch waist, designed by Helen Rose (costume designer for Taylor's film Father of the Bride out the year she wed Hilton), will be auctioned on June 26th as part of a Pop Culture sale at Christie's in London, and is expected to get up to 50,000 euros. The sale prompted a discussion around the FLARE office about all the secondhand celebrity wedding garb we wouldn't mind wearing: herewith, our top 10 picks.
