The structured bodice and strapless style of Posh Spice’s trend setter wedding dress (by Vera Wang, none other) has paved the way for many dresses in time since. She just may be solely responsible for the strapless dress empire in the world of weddings.

Princess Diana’s Silk Taffeta Gown by David and Elizabeth Emanuel
While there was nothing understated about Diana’s puff-sleeved, ruffled, silk taffeta gown (not to mention covered in lace, embroidery, and 10,000 tiny pearls) at her royal wedding to Prince Charles in 1981, we still see each of those elements — just not all on the same gown.
