Jordan's wedding dress makes top 20 list

She married in a pink meringue, but Jordan's Barbie-style wedding outfit has been named among the most stylish of all time.

Her OTT nuptials - complete with Cinderella carriage, 10ft-wide dress and groom Peter Andre's hair extensions - were dubbed ``chav-tastic'' when they took place in 2005.

But upmarket wedding guide Conde Nast Brides believes her gown was a landmark in wedding fashion.

"Jordan's Swarovski-crystal and tulle wedding dress transformed her from C-list to A-list overnight."

The glamour girl's dress was designed by Isabell Kristensen and encrusted with thousands of pink crystals. She topped off her outfit with a foot-high crown.

It was deemed more stylish than the white Yves St Laurent trouser suit Bianca Jagger wore when she tied the knot with Rolling Stone Mick in 1971.

It was also ranked ahead of Princess Margaret's 1960 Norman Hartnett design and the traditional Giorgio Armani creation worn by Katie Holmes when she married Tom Cruise last year.

Jordan was ranked ninth in the magazine's list of 50 most stylish brides.

Number one was Hollywood icon Grace Kelly, who wed Prince Rainier of Monaco in

1956.

Designer Oscar de la Renta said: ``On her wedding day, Grace Kelly gave new meaning to the word `icon'. Her whole look, from the regal veil to the feminine lace details and the conservative gown, made her an ageless bride.''
