Hailey Baldwin's Wedding Dress Featured A Very Unexpected Detail
Here's how the story usually goes: At random times in the day, you find yourself mindlessly scrolling through Instagram, whether it's to get a brief mental break from work, to look for some inspiration for an upcoming project, or to simply see what's going on and what you may have missed on your brief social media absence. Well, a lot happened since Mon. evening — and if you haven't yet seen the 'gram that broke the Internet on Oct. 7. — you know, that gorgeous photo of Hailey Baldwin's wedding dress — then now's the time to get up to speed. The model was a breathtaking bride in a one-of-kind gown that's unlike anything you've seen. And, to document said iconic bridal look, an equally history-making photoshoot was needed. Prepare yourselves for this jaw-dropping celeb wedding moment.
Baldwin and Justin Bieber said their second round of "I do's" on Sept. 30, surrounded by their closest friends and family, all of whom had flown out to South Carolina for the highly anticipated celebration. Details about this second wedding were, as you'd expect, kept under tight wraps — no official date was confirmed, but eventually images of Baldwin's bachelorette party surfaced that signaled the party was nearing. And equally stunning rehearsal dinner look debuted a few days after, but ultimately, it's the model's wedding-day look that just caused the biggest buzz of all.
On Mon., Baldwin finally took to her Instagram to share a look at her and Bieber's wedding-day shoot — and to say she likely blew her 22.4 million fans away with the photograph, taken by New York City-based photographer, Corey Tenold, would be a serious understatement.
Tenold captured the couple perfectly. Taken in front of what's presumably the wedding venue, the power duo shares a sweet kiss and a warm embrace. Bieber's wearing a classic black tuxedo, and while only the back of Baldwin's wedding dress can be seen, one thing's for certain: It's everything you'd hope it would be — and more.
Baldwin stunned in a custom-made Off-White's gown that she and her stylist, Maeve Reilly, envisioned together with designer Virgil Abloh. According to Reilly's Instagram, the gown was "a year in the making," and required a total of "4 fittings all over the world. Countless calls and ideas later."
The long-sleeve, off-the-shoulder gown was detailed with lace and pearl embellishments throughout. It featured a mermaid-style skirt that extended into a long train that elegantly draped behind her.
The finishing touch? An extra-long veil, also trimmed with lace, that was embroidered with "'till death do us part" in the designer's signature block letters. Now that's one veil that's sure to go down in celeb wedding history — wouldn't you agree?
