Golden Globes. Oscars. Emmys. — and a whole slew of movie premieres. Red carpets are the best resource for fashion lovers, and they're an even better place of inspiration for brides-to-be. Whether it's a star wearing a bridal-favorite designer like Marchesa, Reem Acra, Oscar de la Renta, Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier or Jenny Packham or a celeb stepping out in a white, ivory or metallic gown that would look just as amazing walking down the aisle as it does a red carpet, engaged girls should take note of Hollywood's most stylish women when searching for their own wedding dresses.

From Alicia Vikander s demure Louis Vuitton gown, fit for a princess, to Saoirse Ronan s ethereal turn in Yves Saint Laurent Couture and Taraji P. Hanson s modern bombshell vibes in Stella McCartney, the proven trend at the 2016 Golden Globes was a lady in white. If this is any indication, the Oscars should be rife full of bridal inspiration for your big day!

The strapless white column gown was a winning look for Zellweger, who won Best Supporting Actress for Cold Mountain that night. Our favorite part? The dramatic, oversized bow in the back. It's a detail that a glamorous wedding practically requires.
