The gown, designed by Elizabeth and David Emanuel, featured a stunning 25-foot train, hand-embroidered details and a whopping 10,000 pearls.

While the exact cost of Chinese superstar Angelababy's bridal gown isn't public, the fact that her wedding to actor Huang Xiaoming came out to a remarkable $31 million makes it pretty safe to assume the pair spent a pretty penny on the dress.
