Take a look at two centuries of meringue design, at the V&A's crowd-pleasing Spring exhibition of wedding dresses. You can expect plenty of royal gowns - including the Duchess of Cornwall's ladylike frock coat, worn at her 2005 wedding to HRH The Prince of Wales. But sadly not the Duchess of Cambridge's Alexander McQueen gown. However, the star exhibits are likely to be the celebrity gowns - punky Gwen Stefani's pink dip-dye Dior number is shown for the first time, and it's a whopper, while Daily Mail sidebar frequenters will recognise the daring Pam Hogg design worn by socialite Lady Mary Charteris in 2012. Some of the most exquisite workmanship comes from the older pieces though - a perfectly preserved brocade gown from 1780 is stitched from Spitalfields silk, and illustrates nicely why the area was non-pareil for textiles at the time.
