Warning: Major destination wedding inspo ahead! Sonita and Raymond tied the knot on the beautiful island of Barbados. With celebrity songstress Rihanna as a bridesmaid and gold accents galore, this celebration was as glamorous and luxurious as they get!
To get to the venue, Solange road a white bike adorned with cream roses while wearing a cream Stephane Rolland jumpsuit. For her official wedding portraits, she worked with Kenzo designer Humbert Leon on a white-floor length gown which she topped with a beautiful cape. She added gold cuffs to the ensemble and a bright red lip, adding to the regal quality of the look. Solange finally changed into another jumpsuit for a Mardi Gras-style parade through the French Quarter.
Making the day even more stylish, all guests were asked to wear white and the bridesmaids chose their own dresses (Maid-of-Honour Beyoncé opted for a Torn by Ronny Kobo dress and platform heels). Every detail that has emerged so far is so pin-worthy, reminding us why Solange is a modern day style icon!
Did you know that George and Amal Clooney celebrated their “I Do’s” again last week with a lavish dinner party hosted by Amal’s parents in London? Amal wore a gold, strapless Donna Karan gown (a dress she previously wore to the UK film premiere of The Monuments Men.) She couldn’t have looked more gorgeous! We think a gold gown would make for a glam second (or third!) wedding look and have gathered five options to turn heads at your reception.
Diane von Furstenberg’s scalloped lace dress is gilt goodness and Simone Rocha’s tea length dress is lovely with its metallic embroidery. Though technically not a gown, Tibi's jumpsuit is best for really cutting loose on the dance floor.
To further channel Amal, pair your gilded ensemble with a bold red lip and get ready for endless compliments.
