Karlie Kloss Married Joshua Kushner In A Custom Dior Gown
Just three months after their engagement, Karlie Koss married Joshua Kushner in a secret ceremony on Thurs. The model made the surprise announcement with an Instagram photo of her in a wedding dress, accompanied by the caption "10.18.2018" and a heart emoji. The portrait offers a glimpse into the intimate occasion — as well as Kloss' striking Dior gown.
Kloss and her longtime boyfriend, investor and businessman Joshua Kushner, announced their engagement in July after six years of dating. The couple has seemed to have successfully kept a low profile since they met back in 2012, and their wedding day was no different. They exchanged vows in the place where Kushner popped the question not all that long ago in upstate New York.
In the photos disclosed from the big day, the 26-year-old is wearing a custom Dior ball gown with a voluminous veil. Kloss opted for a strapless bodice with a sheer lacy V-neck and three-quarter sleeves similar to the style of Kate Middleton's famous Alexander McQueen wedding dress in 2011. The skirt was puffy enough for a princess with an elegant lace overlay. The model wore a wispy low bun under her floor-length veil, with simple pearl earrings, a dainty pendant around her neck, and natural makeup akin to her everyday look. She carried a small leafy bouquet of subtle white flowers.
Although the wedding itself was a surprise to most, her sleek bridal style should have been expected. The fashion-forward model has earned a reputation for her sophisticated, always-on-trend style, even when she's off the clock.
Unfortunately, the former Victoria's Secret Angel hasn't provided an up-close look at her wedding band just yet, but the engagement ring is simply too big to miss. Although untraditional engagement rings have gained popularity amongst celebrities in recent years, Kloss went the timeless route.
The ring that Kushner proposed with is a diamond pavé band with a massive cushion-cut diamond as its centerpiece. It's estimated to weigh between seven and eight carats with a worth of up to $500,000, Town & Country reported in July.
The couple allegedly tied the knot in a Jewish ceremony of less than 80 guests, People says. And while it isn't clear where exactly the nuptials took place, the photos reveal a romantic woodland backdrop. Kloss and her 33-year-old husband plan to have a larger reception come spring.
Just a week before the wedding, Kloss joined the likes of former first lady Michelle Obama, Kelly Clarkson, Zendaya, and Frieda Pinto on Today for the program's International Day of the Girl concert. She took selfies with the star-studded group on stage wearing a fuchsia bodice dress and didn't mention her approaching wedding plans. Now, just days later, the supermodel is a married woman.
Kloss' husband is a tech entrepreneur and Harvard graduate who grew up in a real estate-focused family in Livingston, New Jersey. You might have heard of his brother, Jared Kushner, who is the son-in-law and senior advisor to President Donald Trump, though Josh has said publicly that they don't share the same political views.
