      According to the website Challenge Fashion, the gown Elizabeth Taylor donned in the 1950 film "Father of the Bride" was the most copied wedding gown of that decade. It was also a dress that emphasized how many brides wanted gowns with lace. The dress's cut brought immediate attention to a slenderized waist. In the film, Taylor's V-neck décolletage was layered with lace while the bodice and skirt were sculpted with satin. The satin skirt was split to display a lacy underskirt. The veil was floor-length and made of tulle.
