Actress Elizabeth Taylor emerges from a limousine on her wedding day to Conrad 'Nicky' Hilton.
The dress was a gift to Taylor from MGM studios, and completely custom-made for her. It comprised 25 yards of shell satin embellished with bugle beads and seed pearls, and has a 15-foot long satin train.
It had a built-in corset and a 10-yard-long veil made of shimmering silk net that was attached to a pearl-covered Juliet cap.
