Kim Kardashian

Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Kim Kardashian tied the knot with Kanye West in 2014 in a custom mermaid gown by Givenchy. Although the sheer lace back and waist are different to Kate's, there's no mistaking the similarities of the long lace sleeves and impressive veil.

Rose Leslie

Game of Thrones star Rose Leslie certainly looked like royalty when she married Kit Harrington. The actress opted for a long-sleeved Elie Saab gown which boasted a boat neckline and intricate floral embroidery, but her open back was a slightly more daring take on Kate's dress.

Jacqueline Jossa

Jacqueline Jossa's bespoke Suzanne Neville gown was based on the 'Matisse' style from the Suzanne Neville Portrait Collection. The fitted corset and long-sleeve beaded lace jacket were reminiscent of Kate's silhouette. For the evening celebrations, the actress removed the jacket to reveal a strapless dress underneath.

Kelly Clarkson

When Kelly Clarkson and Brandon Blackstock eloped in 2013, the singer wore a long-sleeve lace wedding dress by Temperley. The pretty gown features a V-neckline, much like Kate's, a low back and embellishments.
