Meghan Markle‘s wedding gown has turned out to be the most looked up one in the past decade. Designed by Givenchy’s Clare Waight Keller, it topped the list of the most popular wedding dresses of the 2010s, according to a new study from British gift specialists Find Me a Gift. The study analyzed the internet search volume for celebrity bridal gowns of the 2010s.
Markle’s off-the-shoulder gown and intricate veil took the first spot, averaging 21,900 monthly searches in the UK since her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. Her silk gown from the British designer featured an open bateau neckline, three-quarter sleeves, and a flowing train. She also wore a cathedral-length veil made from silk tulle, which had a trim of hand-embroidered flowers from the Commonwealth’s 52 countries, as well as her home state’s flower, the California poppy.

Meanwhile, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton‘s lace Alexander McQueen gown took the second spot on the list, with 21,500 average monthly UK searches since her nuptials to Prince William in 2011. The fitted V-neck gown, from a creative team led by British designer Sarah Burton, featured French Chantilly lace and English Cluny lace, a sweetheart bodice and a full skirt, and a nearly nine-foot train. Middleton also wore a silk tulle veil and the Cartier halo tiara.
Other celebrity wedding gowns that made the list include Hailey Bieber‘s off-the-shoulder gown by Virgil Abloh for Off-White in third place, from her wedding to Justin Bieber in 2018. Coming fourth on the list was Ariana Grande‘s strapless Vera Wang haute couture wedding dress from her May 2021 wedding to real estate agent Dalton Gomez. The lily-white, silk charmeuse strapless gown, which featured an empire waist and sculpted neckline, has been searched for about 2,400 times per month since they tied the knot. English singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding came in fifth, as her custom-made Chloe gown from 2019 receives 1,600 searches per month. The embroidered and handmade dress, taking over 640 hours to make, was created by designer Natacha Ramsay-Levi.
