When Kate Middleton walked down the aisle in her beautiful custom Alexander McQueen wedding dress, the world couldn’t help but stop and stare. It was a huge fashion moment for brides-to-be around the world, and the details of her gown — the lace, long sleeves, full skirt, and dramatic train — quickly became highly coveted in the bridal market. Since her big day, many brides have chosen gowns that seem like subtle nods to the Duchess of Cambridge’s iconic dress. Take a peek at a few of them in this gallery!

Princess Sofia of Sweden wore an Ida Sjöstedt gown to her 2015 wedding, which looked like a close relative to the one Kate wore on her big day.

Italian heiress Beatrice Borromeo wore a high neck, long-sleeved Armani gown for her wedding to Grace Kelly’s grandson.

Allison Williams’ Oscar de la Renta creation had similar lace details and a full skirt — with an accompanying train.

Nicky Hilton’s Valentino gown had full length sleeves and gorgeous lace details. However, the heiress chose a high, almost turtleneck collar whereas the Duchess chose a simple V.

Former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell wore a surprisingly demure Phillipa Lepley lace gown for her nuptials — a far cry from her former stage attire.

Model Arlenis Sosa may have chosen a more form-fitting skirt, but the bodice and sleeve details evoke Kate’s gown.

Actress Jamie Chung chose a Monique Lhuillier gown with long sleeves and a V neckline, but a bit more sparkle than the Duchess' dress.

Though Victoria Secret model Kate Grigorieva’s wedding dress was a fit and flare silhouette, the sweetheart neckline and lace overlay channeled the Duchess of Cambridge.

Kelly Clarkson’s wedding dress was the country chic version of Kate’s dress, with lacy bell-shaped sleeves, a delicate V neckline, and an A-line skirt with a short train.

If Kelly Clarkson’s gown was the country chic version of Kate Middleton’s gown, Nikki Reed’s Claire Pettibone gown was of the boho variety.

Ever wonder what would happen if Kate Middleton’s bridal gown had a high-to-low hem? Whitney Port proves it would be modern and incredibly chic.
