One of Karl Lagerfeld's muses, it came as no surprises that Lily Allen wore a Chanel dress by the designer on her wedding day to Sam Cooper in June 2011. While the Smile singer donned a 1920s-inspired creation by Delphine Manivet (pictured) for the ceremony, she later changed into a vintage-style empire line dress created by Karl for her reception. Karl shared a glimpse at his sketch for the dress on Twitter in 2011 (inset) along with a sneak peek at Lily wearing the design. Following the news of his death, Lily said: "You made me feel like a princess. I never quite understood what you saw in me but I am forever grateful for the support that you and Chanel have given me over the last 15 years."

Keira Knightley

A-list actress Keira loves her Chanel wedding dress so much, she's worn it on several occasions, including for a red carpet appearance in December 2013, just a few months after marrying Klaxons musician James Righton. The Karl Lagerfeld design was powder pink with a tulle knee-length skirt, and bandeau top. On her big day the actress teamed the dress with a Chanel tweed jacket and flat shoes, but she restyled it for the red carpet by adding a sheer long-sleeve top with embellished detailing.

Not only did American model wear one of Karl Lagerfeld's wedding dresses for her nuptials to photographer Miles Aldridge in 1997, she also walked down the aisle on the arm of the man himself. Her one-shoulder draped chiffon dress was made in a fabric dyed to match her pale skin and was offset by a feather headdress by Philip Treacy.
