Ellie Goulding's white, Grecian-inspired Armani dress is the epitome of boho glam — and it happens to be perfect for a bride. Worn to the MTV Movie Awards recently, the cool, wedding-worthy A-line dress features two trends straight off of the bridal runways: side cutouts and a high neckline. The skirt's wide pleats and hidden pockets (love!) balance out the very simple bodice.
Ellie's all-white look is perfect for a modern bride-to-be searching for a wedding dress that's timeless, yet not stuffy. And with endless lookalikes in the newest designer collections, it's super easy for a bride to channel the signer's goddess-inspired style on their big day. Here's how:

This silk-and-tulle A-line wedding dress featuring a high neckline is almost a perfect match for Ellie's red carpet look. Though, this version gets a bridal upgrade with illusion and floral applique embellishments on the side cutouts.

This slim style is reminiscent of Ellie's look, but utilizes a more wedding-worthy lace fabric. With the cutout shifted to the neckline, it gives off a similarly sexy vibe without a bride having to worry about feeling too exposed.

For the minimalist bride, this Houghton sheath skips the side cutouts in favor of an elegant (and equally sexy) slim silhouette. The similar high neckline — in this case, a halter — is ideal for a sleek and modern aesthetic.

For a girlier take on Ellie's look, try this Blush by Hayley Paige asymmetrical A-line wedding dress. The high-low hemline and visible boning channel Ellie's modern style, while the fuller skirt and sweetheart neckline add a decidedly feminine flair. The cutout is shifted to the midriff.
