It's no surprise that we love a stylish white dress. Whether a bride is dressed in one on her wedding day, a designer is sending one down the runway at Bridal Fashion Week, or a celebrity is rocking one on the red carpet, a white dress is a classic, fresh, and chic blank slate for accessories. Plus, the hue is ripe with possibilities for new interpretations—we think it should be every celebrity's go-to color! This week, we scoured the Internet for the best ivory, cream, and eggshell gowns to bring you these stunning, wedding-worthy looks.

Just like the other two celebs wearing fabulous white dresses in this post, Hudson is also rocking a major skinny arm. With such a wedding-worthy sleek and modern ensemble, can you blame her for striking a strong (and slenderizing) pose? We'd say no. Hudson, the proud winner of the evening's Favorite Humanitarian award, looked unbelievable in her crisp white dress with it's on-trend bateau neckline and long sleeves—perfect for the winter event. Her sandals, cropped 'do, and bold pink lip were the ideal accents to the lightly draped frock.

Alba, a perennial style star, stunned in this dress by one of Michelle Obama's fave designers. Though it would be tricky to pull off a bondage-inspired number like this for a wedding (zippers, criss-crosses, oh my!), Alba shows us how to keep it classy. Long, smooth locks, hoop earrings, plain white pumps, and a colorful clutch are all different enough to prevent this from feeling too risqué. Brides planning to wear corset dresses or ones with see-through details, take note!

The funny lady and her 2 Broke Girls co-star Kat Dennings hit a home run co-hosting the awards telecast, but she won us over before the show even started in this two-toned gown. It reminded us of Vera Wang's Spring 2014 bridal collection, which was awash in black-and-white dresses. This one is simple and elegant, made even more so with its slit and her bridal-style updo. Any bride attempting a similar two-color gown should subtly play up the non-white accents like Behrs does here, with her black strappy sandals and fun earrings and bracelet. Like Hudson, she sported a bright pink lip—we see a new trend coming on!
