The team at wedding veil specialists Richard Designs explain "Kim Kardashian’s veil is a real statement piece, with wide corded border lace and a full length. The very long blusher kept the lace detail away from the bodice of her dress so as to not interfere with that detail. Most brides do not want such a long blusher so we would recommend our veil C413A which has lace all the way round but not on the blusher so you can have that statement look without hiding your dress."

Lauren Conrad’s Wedding Veil
Author and reality star Lauren Conrad married William Tell back in September 2014, Lauren chanelled her laid back Californian style and wore her hair loose and flowing and completed her look with a simple wedding veil.
Richard Designs tell us: “Lauren chose a beautiful clean look, with a simple veil and sparking headpiece. This let her dress steal the show, but meant she could achieve that beautiful bridal halo that only a veil provides. Our simple but elegant C16A veil can be paired with any tiara to accomplish this style.”

Michelle Keegan married Mark Wright in a lavish ceremony this year and the ex-Corrie star wore a stunning veil with pretty scalloped edging.
Richard Designs explain: "This full-length veil is a perfect match for Michelle’s gown, the undulating embroidered scalloped edge matching the back of her dress beautifully. Our veil C485B captures the essence of this style and includes delicate pearl-adorned petals around the edge for an even more feminine look."

Rochelle Humes's Wedding Veil
When The Saturday’s singer Rochelle Wiseman married JLS’s Marvin Humes, they had a star-studded affair that was meticulously planned by celebrity wedding planner Mark Niermarko. For their glitzy and glamorous day, Rochelle went bold and wore a stunning full length wedding veil with ribbon edging, if you love the ribbon detail on Rochelle's wedding veil then consider the Cuba veil from Joyce Jackson.
Frankie Bridge’s Wedding Veil
Veil experts Rainbow Club tell us “Reflecting the fun ‘frothiness’ of the tulle skirt on her wedding dress, Frankie Bridge opted for a totally plain, raw edged tulle veil. Falling the full length of her gown, her single tiered wedding veil acted like a soft ‘halo’ to her strapless sweetheart dress. With elegant lace details on her gown and a delicate headband, this simple veil was the perfect choice. For a similar style the Intrigue design will help recreate this look.”

Kate Middleton’s Wedding Veil
One of the most iconic wedding veils has to be the one worn by Kate Middleton at the Royal Wedding. Rainbow Club talk more about the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding veil: “Made of soft silk tulle with hand embroidered lace trim, Kate Middleton’s veil worked beautifully with her romantic dress. Falling below her fingertips, the double layered veil provided a delicate but simple option to compliment the lace detailing on her bodice and sleeve, without distracting attention from the dramatic train and structured back on her Alexander McQueen gown. Styles such as Topolino and Empress within the Rainbow Club collection would provide a similar look.”
Christina Ricci's Wedding Veil
When Addams family actress Christina Ricci married James Heerdegen it took her just three days to share a wedding snap on her twitter page. It wasn’t just her gorgeous Givenchy gown we were all staring at, it was her beautifully embroidered lace veil that especially caught our eye. If you love the idea of an intricate lace wedding veil then this style from Visionary Veils could be perfect for you.
