Elizabeth Taylor, as well as being an acclaimed actress of the 1950s and ’60s, was also a prolific bride! As she was a style icon, her private life received almost as much scrutiny as her characters on screen. And, she clearly loved marriages, or at least weddings, as she tied the knot eight times.
Hollywood icon Marilyn Monroe had her fair share of lovers. The infamous blonde bombshell married not once but three times in her short life.
The Second World War saw both more and fewer marriages – more because of men devoted to their sweethearts, and fewer because of the cost and timing. The 1940s were a time of great change, in everything, and we see that too in fashion and wedding wear.
Married eight times to seven different men, Elizabeth Taylor wore plenty of wedding dresses in her lifetime. However, she adorned wedding gowns before this, most notably in the film Father of the Bride.
