This month’s Get the Look feature is Elizabeth Taylor in her 1950 wedding to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton.

get Elizabeth Taylor's wedding look

Elizabeth Taylor is no stranger to a gorgeous wedding dress, as she took 8 trips down the aisle during her lifetime. I love the classic look from her first wedding to Conrad “Nicky” Hilton in 1950 when she was only 18. Her silk, basque-waisted gown was designed by costume designer Helen Rose and was a gift from her studio, MGM.

My favorite part of this gown is the illusion neckline with the high neck and delicate detailing. I started my search for dresses that had a similar feature and spoke to that same classic elegance that makes Elizabeth’s gown so memorable.
