4. Laura Dern

Another Armani Privé gown worn to the Academy Awards – this time in light pink with black tassels – may not immediately scream wedding season, but with this year’s focus on colour, it could be a subtle way to inject some verve into your look.

5. Scarlett Johansson

This champagne-coloured gown, by famed designer Oscar de la Renta, is sexy, yet demure enough to be able to say ‘I do’, while also teasing your spouse with the prospect of some after-hours activity.

6. Lana Del Ray

‘California’ songstress, Lana Del Ray had another gown planned for the big Grammy awards night but a trip to the mall convinced her this was IT. While we’re not suggesting hopping down to the high street (unless you want to), you don’t need to spend thousands on a dress you’ll only wear once!

One of four (yes, four) gowns worn by Lizzo at the Grammy’s, this white Versace piece – featuring hand-embroidered Swarovski crystals – made heads turn. It may have taken two months to make but it suited her like a dream!
