There’s something so cool to me about ANY kind of dress exhibit at a museum. While I mostly love seeing what fashion trends were long ago, it’s fun to see dresses from our generation to contrast them…especially wedding dresses! That’s why I’m so excited to see pictures from the new Victoria and Albert Museum wedding dress exhibit in London.

“Wedding Dresses 1775-2014″running now through 2015showcases how the wedding dress has evolved over the years. “In the past, the wedding dress was marginalized and fossilized, but there has always been a close association to fashion,” Victoria and Albert Museum wedding dress exhibit curator Edwina Ehrman told Vanity Fair, adding she wants to change preconceived notions of a typical wedding dress as white with a “big ball skirt.”

Famous frocks at the Victoria and Albert Museum wedding dress exhibit include Gwen Stefani’s pink wedding dress by John Galliano for Dior, Camilla Parker Bowles’s silver Anna Valentine coat and gown with Philip Treacy hat, and Kate Moss’s  John Galliano feathered dress.

It’s fun to get ideas for your own wedding dress from looking at styles from decades past. And those shoes?! I kind of wish I could find a pair of those!
