Beyonce’s video for “Best Thing I Never Had” received mixed reviews from fans and critics, but there was one thing everybody could agree on: Bey looked absolutely stunning in her bridal gown. Could Bey’s faux-wedding day duds be the most beautiful dress to grace the body of a pop star in her music video? She’s certainly got some heavy competition — jump below to take a look back at other wedding gowns in pop music videos and vote for the best-dressed bride.
Beyonce – “Best Thing I Never Had”. Classy, stylish, sexy and with razzle-dazzle. Would a true diva wear anything less?
Gwen Stefani – “Simple Kind Of Life”. This dress is perfectly suited for a runaway bride like Gwen, as it still manages to look quite elegant floating in the breeze as Gwen runs for her (single) life.
Katy Perry – “Hot N Cold”. This ridiculous wedding outfit – complete with lopsided bow and the front section cut out – matched the silly, over-the-top vibe of Katy’s video.
Mariah Carey – “We Belong Together”. A perfect dress for a fairy tale wedding. Though maybe a little too poofy for our tastes.
Britney Spears – “My Prerogative”. Black wedding dress?! Their marriage was doomed from the start.
Miranda Lambert – “White Liar”. Pretty, but a bit bland. Kind of like our feelings about Miranda Lambert.
Madonna – “Like A Virgin”. We only see wedding dress for a very brief moment in this classic video, but we can already tell it’s way too conservative, even for somebody named Madonna. The bridal outfit she wore to the VMAs, however, matched her personality much better.
