The first of Elizabeth Taylor’s seven husbands was Conrad “Nicky” Hilton. They were married in Beverly Hills in May 1950 and Liz wore a dress by Helen Rose – the MGM costumier who designed Grace Kelly’s wedding gown.

Grace Kelly reportedly once told her sister,“One day I’m going to be a princess.”The wedding between the movie star and the ruler of Monaco was called “The Wedding of the Century” and set the standard for royal weddings. It started off with a 12-carat diamond Cartier engagement ring that Kelly paired with a now-iconic wedding dress.The gown, which inspired Kate Middleton’s, included 25 yards of taffeta, 100 yards of silk net & thousands of pearls; it took 36 seamstresses six weeks to make.
Costume designer Helen Rose created the wedding dress that Elizabeth Taylor wore when she starred as Kay Banks in Father of the Bride in 1950. The gown that Taylor later wore at her wedding to Conrad Hilton was noticeably similar in design.
