For the climactic moment of their star-studded, three-day wedding celebration, Camila Alves donned a long-sleeved lace gown (Kate Middleton, anyone?) to wed actor Matthew McConaughey at their home in Texas. Alves told People she first met her dress designer, 78-year-old Ducarmo Catelo Branco, as a young girl in her native Brazil. "I guess you can say she has been planning this design for over 20 years," the model said. Alves flew to Brazil for just one day of fittings before she "left and just had to trust them"—although you'll (thankfully) have more time to perfect your own wedding-day look if you choose one of these similar styles, like the Elie Saab gown above.
