Beyonce’s Vow Renewal Dress Was Victorian-Inspired With A Modern Twist
As the world bids farewell to 2018 and narrows in on goals for the new year, Instagram has been filled with a slew of monumental memories from the past 365 days. As celebrities took to the social media platform to revisit accomplishments and fond memories of 2018, the world was let in on a little-known fact: Beyoncé renewed her vows in a Victorian-inspired dress. That's right, Queen Bey posted a montage featuring seconds-long clips of her most treasured moments of 2018, giving the world one of its first glimpses at the star's vow renewal ceremony with Jay-Z.
Bey isn't huge on sharing personal family moments on social media, so when she does, it's a rare treat for her dedicated fans. In the touching New Year's roundup, the mother of three showed off her adorable twins, Rumi and Sir, tender moments on her stage with her husband during the On The Run II tour, and a hilarious clip from the Grammy Awards showcasing Blue Ivy's iconic, unmatchable talents in throwing shade.
But fashion lovers and brides-to-be especially took note of a rare snap from the couple's vow renewal back in June, which revealed the first full-length photo of the singer's wedding gown.
The couture fashion house, Galia Lahav, promptly took note — and posted a screenshot showcasing the gorgeous, Victorian-inspired number. "This is the first official image to surface from that remarkable day - and we're in love all over again! #Beyonce#QueenB," the bridal designer captioned the snap. The gown features a long flowing train, translucent, billowy sleeves, and an ornately decorated bodice. You can see the intricate details of the gown on the brand's website, but what's so unique about Beyoncé's spin on the look is the tiny, matrix-inspired sunglasses she styled it with.
In true Beyoncé fashion, the superstar made the vibe her own, juxtaposing the gown's classic elegance and charm with a little current-day flair via the '90s-esque eyewear, making for a truly iconic look. Has Beyoncé moved you to consider something Victorian-inspired for your big day, or maybe just to take the tiny glasses trend for a spin? Ahead, The Zoe Report rounds up dresses and sunnies that are sure to bring the same one-of-a-kind look.
