Well it is definitely wedding season and in honor of all the love in the air and numerous engagements, I decided to highlight Beyonce’s wedding dress selection for her latest video, “Best I Never Had.” Or actually, I should say wedding gown, because “dress” just does not do this creation justice. (Click on the link at the end of the article to see the full video.) So, Mrs. Carter chose a gown that was above and beyond anything most brides could even dream of, and definitely more than she had at her small intimate wedding to Mr. Carter in 2008.
The dress, provided by Baracci Beverly Hills, is a strapless embellished and embroidered bodice full ball gown in pure white with gold, silver, white and diamond sequin accents. The back laces up to reveal sneak peaks of the back that lead down to a long train trimmed in a gold embroidery. King B accessorized the gown with diamond earrings and a crown tiara veil. Her makeup was natural with a hint of light shimmery gray on the eyelids surrounded by a smudged dark brown eyeliner, a soft pink highlighting the cheeks and a soft pink gloss on the lips…simply beautiful.
She changed into a more comfortable selection for the reception portion of the video, wearing a classic dress designed by the queen of wedding dresses, Ms. Vera Wang. The reception dress was a deep V-cut long satin dress with mesh around the bosom that tied on the shoulders and also tied in the back…simply classic.
Now I teeter back and forth on whether or not I want a big formal wedding with the big beautiful gown or if I just want to go down to the Justice of the Peace and call it a day, but these dresses right here make me go, “Hmm…” These dresses, especially the main gown, make me want the whole shebang. But hey, I really don’t have anything to worry about on making a decision since there is no wedding in the near future, but I digress. Simply put, I absolutely LOVE these dresses and LOVE the song even more!! Singing out…”What goes around comes back around, hey, my baby…”
