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.
Jessica Biel in Chanel At The MoMA Film Benefit In NYC
Jessica Biel is a demonstrably ardent fan of all shades of white. She wore a short lace number to a Total Recall premiere just before her October 2012 nuptials to Justin Timberlake and stepped out in a taupe gown at the 2012 Golden Globes, and those are just the highlights of her arsenal of cream-colored frocks.

Naturally, we were surprised to see her wearing a a petal pink Giambattista Valli wedding dress in her wedding photos. Though we loved her take on the burgeoning colored wedding dress trend, we loved seeing her in this gorgeous Chanel creation (see above) at Tuesday night's MoMA event, a tribute to Tilda Swinton. The dress wisely plays off the classic cream Chanel quilted fabric with the asymmetrical hem, fringe-y bronze chained neck piece, and coordinated bronze Christian Louboutin pumps. Biel took a fashion risk by pairing her sleek, straight locks with electric blue eyeliner and totally pulled it off! Her ensemble was a thoroughly unique take on a white dress, and her confident posture and exciting styling helped bring it all together. Such a dramatic departure from a classic white dress makes us wonder what Biel would have looked like in white on her wedding day! Regardless, daring brides should consider a wonderfully alternative style like this.

On the other end of the spectrum is the stunning white Max Mara column dress that Jennifer Garner donned for a photo call in Japan on Tuesday. Garner, a spokeswoman for the line, proved her mettle by expertly adding a romantic updo, subtle gold bangles, and a black clutch. All focus stays on the beautiful, ruffled dress (and her flawless makeup), and that's just the way we like it!

Not one to be outdone, funny lady Anna Faris made her contribution to the white dress fund earlier this week. Her white-hot Hervé Léger by Max Azria showed off her enviable post-baby body thanks to its figure-flattering, mesh-covered cutouts. It reminded us of this knockout Angel Sanchez wedding dress from Spring 2014, one of our favorite looks of that season. She accented the futuristic dress with blunt bangs, a ponytail, and some sexy nude heels. Faris, along with the other fair, white-clad ladies, prove that confidence is always the best wedding-day accessory.
