4 of 5: The dress: Kim Kardashian plans to wear a $25,000 wedding gown designed by Vera Wang.

'Vera has been a close family friend for a long time and we had talked about this moment for years, so when it came to picking my wedding dress designer she was the first person I thought of,' the reality star said on her blog on Aug. 1, 2011. 'No one designs gowns the way she does! I know that Vera can make my dream come true and create the most perfect gown for my special day.'

On August 16, she wrote: 'I took the red-eye to NYC last week, landed at eight in the morning and literally ran to Vera Wang for a dress fitting!'

Jennifer Lopez also wore a Vera Wang gown when she married third husband Marc Anthony in 2004. Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson also donned one during their first weddings.

Other celebrities who have gotten married in Vera Wang wedding dresses include Kardashian's sister Khloe, Ali Larter, Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Hilary Duff, Tiger Woods' now-ex-wife Elin Nordegren, Caleb Followill's wife Lily Aldridge, model and actress Brooklyn Decker, reality star LaLa Vazquez, Ivanka Trump and former U.S. President Bill Clinton's daughter, Chelsea.
