The best wedding dresses from Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week

Some of the most anticipated gowns that appear in haute couture shows are the wedding dresses, and this year was no different at Paris Fashion Week.

Designers usually save the best for last and as haute couture tradition dictates, brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Franck Sorbier closed their shows with an outstanding bridal number. Others, meanwhile, incorporated white gowns throughout their collections.

Scroll down for the crème de la crème of wedding dresses.

Cara Delevingne played the role of Chanel's bride and walked down the catwalk in an ethereal barely-there white dress, matched with a feathery headdress.

The 21-year-old model was accompanied by Karl Lagerfeld and his godson Hudson Kroenig and just like everyone else in the show, Cara walked down in dazzling trainers. 

Alexis Mabille may not have shaped his collection around wedding dresses, but given the bridal details that appeared throughout the show, such as floor-length white gowns, sheer lace and butterfly head pieces, Mabille may as well have been catering to brides-to-be worldwide.

Dior's haute couture shows have never closed with a bridal piece, but this season's collection flaunted various white dresses with floral and ruffled detailing. 

As tradition dictates, Jean Paul Gaultier closed his haute couture show with an extravagant bridal number. The designer revamped the traditional white dress and brought out a more revealing, bodycon outfit which was festooned with a feathery headdress and cascading veil. 

Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad showcased various creations that could work well on a bride, such as flowing white, lace dresses and fifties-style frocks. Gold was a recurring motif in Zuhair's collection, with several pieces held together by a gold leaf waist belt. 

Bridal gowns may have been on Ralph & Russo's mind as the fashion house delivered a range of white, floor-length dresses that focused on long trains, glittering veils and floral prints. 

Only the best can be expected from Elie Saab, who year after year wows the bridal world. His haute couture range was a true inspiration for women on the hunt for wedding dresses, featuring draping silk, feathered designs and floral and petal lacework, all in white, vanilla or rose.

Franck Sorbier's bride set the bar high with extravagance, reflecting a "gypsy" look of billowing sleeves, a gold bodice, a lace veil and an embroidered skirt.
