8 Best & Worst Celeb Wedding Gowns of All Time (PHOTOS)

dressOther than the Oscars, a celeb wedding is the most glam event you will ever lay your eyes on.

From $650 bottles of champagne and 200-pound cakes to 30,000 perfect blooms, the stars usually go over-the-top when it comes to their "I do"s.

But the most important detail? The dress of course. They spare no expense for diamond encrusted lace or hand-beaded, 30-foot trains. That bride's aisle style is usually the most loved -- or hated -- part of the big day. Some do it right (that would be you Kate Middleton!) and some you know look back and regret that gown as much as the groom they have long since cut loose.

Take a look at the 8 best and worst wedding looks of all time.

Brides who rocked it

Kate Middleton It's as though the entire world was waiting to see this dress. Well, it didn't disappoint. The Alexander McQueen creation, with its six-foot train, became an instant classic.

Grace Kelly No one signifies beauty better than this timeless screen queen. Her pearl studded dress was simply superb. It's even said to be the inspiration for Middleton's gown.

Nancy Shevell Yes, I know. She is only a celebrity because she married one, but it still counts. The new Mrs. Paul McCartney's look (designed by her stepdaughter Stella) is the perfect example of understated elegance. She's proof you don't have to go overboard to look amazing.nancy shevell

Gwen Stefani Her Christian Dior gown with a dip-dyed train could have gone terribly wrong. But the savvy style rebel somehow made the splash of hot pink incredibly elegant.

Brides who missed the mark

Princess Diana I know, I know. It's Princess Di. She is a fashion icon ... for everything besides that massive, billowing monster of a dress. She's just lost in it. In a lot of ways, it represented her marriage to Prince Charles -- not the right fit.princess di

Christina Aguilera Too bad she's not a believer in less is more. The gorgeous bodice of that custom Christian Lacroix was totally overshadowed by the out of control train.

Kim Zolciak After all that hoopla surrounding her relationship and then engagement to Kroy Biermann, I expected more wow than WTF. This 32-pound Baracci dress -- covered with Swarovski crystals, pearls, beads, and embroidered lace -- had too much of everything.

Pamela Anderson Not that I expected her to be demure, but the swimsuit she slipped on to marry Kid Rock gave new meaning to the phrase "busting out." Though, it has it's fans. I am pretty sure it inspired Coco's choice for her vow renewal to Ice T.pam anderson
