Stranger Things actress Winona Ryder stepped onto the red carpet in 2011 wearing this ethereal bridal gown that definitely turned a few heads.

White can be a difficult color to pull off, but Sofia Vergara proved she can do so flawlessly at the 2017 Emmys! The Modern Family actress wore a Mark Zunino number that he actually designed for his 2018 Atelier bridal collection.

To top off the look, Lima wore a chunky silver choker around her neck and an eye-catching red pout.
3. Kristen Wiig — 2015 Golden Globes
Kristen Wiig’s off-the-shoulder number from the 2015 Golden Globes wasn’t simply another white dress on the red carpet and was actually from Delphine Manviet’s Pagan Bride collection.

2. Kyra Sedgwick — 2010 SAG Awards
Kyra Sedgwick opted for a Vera Wang bridal number when she walked the red carpet for the 2010 SAG Awards.

The bridal look was definitely red carpet appropriate, especially with the gray tulle sash and crystal brooch. The number was first spotted on Vera Wang’s 2009 fall collection.
1. Angie Harmon — 2011 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards
Despite her dress being a light shade of apricot, Angie Harmon was critiqued at the 2011 Screen Actor’s Guild Awards for wearing a gown that looked too much like bridal attire. Critics were actually more accurate than they likely realized because a number extremely similar debut on the Monique Lhuillier runway for the 2010 fashion season. The Monique Lhuillier gown featured a corset bodice, a fluffy feathered skirt, and a sweetheart strapless neckline.
