Scandal star Darby Stanchfield opted for femininity with a bow and embellishment, Pretty Little Liars actress Troian Bellisario uplifted a simple silhouette with metallic accessories, and supermodel Chanel Iman channeled a fairytale princess in icy blue. Here, the red-carpet looks brides-to-be should take notice of this week.

Darby Stanchfield at the 101st Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner: Much like her stylish Scandal character Abby, Darby loves a supremely fashionable look for high-profile events. She made her mark in a floral jacquard Ludmila Corlateanu dress which upped the glamour quotient with a plunging neckline, bow detailing, and slight high-low hem. The refined updo and glowing makeup makes this ensemble perfect for a rehearsal dinner or engagement party, for the bride who wants longer length, but isn't afraid of décolletage.

Troian Bellisario at the 101st Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner: The fashionable Pretty Little Liars actress is no wallflower when it comes to style and she showed her flair for fashion with gold metallic accessories: a metallic floral vine belt and gold-and-white striped Edie Parker clutch. It was a great way to uplift the simple silhouette of her floor-grazing white gown. We can see this ensemble working beautifully for an outdoor or beach wedding, especially because of her loose waves and dewy skin.

Chanel Iman at the 101st Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner: Want to find a way to wear a wedding gown with a hint of color while still being the belle of the ball? Try something like Chanel's icy blue Zuhair Murad Spring 2015 Couture gown. It's both elegant and flirtatious, with a plunging neckline and charming embellishment at the shoulders. Chanel let the dress play centerstage with diamond Harry Kotlar earrings, a sleek ponytail, nude lips, and smoky eyes.
