Sunglasses and Advil, last night was mad real.
First of all, Keyshia Ka'oir is my spirit animal.
Did you catch #TheManeEvent last night? Listen. A diamond-studded wedding dress with a diamond-studded bouquet for a diamond-studded event? I mean, C'mon. The Queen of Extra wed her man in the iciest way possible- dripping in diamonds.
Coco Note: Y'all know I'm Prince$$ Extra.
I've always been a fan of both Gucci Mane and Keyshia Ka'oir, so I'm definitely in favor of this union. While I would die before I let a guest wear a drop of white on my wedding day, I admire Keyshia for taking the Knowles-route (both Beyonce and Solange had attendees dress in all-white). I live to see people of chocolate in all-white.
Can you imagine being in that room? I can, and here's what I would be wearing if I was.
Just because you're allowed to wear white doesn't mean you can overshadow the bride. Keep that in mind when you're shopping for your all-white wedding guest attire. While demure is definitely in the cards, make no mistake, we're serving all the necessary drama with as little detail as possible. This ankle-length bodycon dress might lack embellishment and embroidery, but it definitely packs a punch. While I wouldn't normally go for such a long length, I'm take a page from Kim K's book and forgoing the laws of proportion. Luckily the fit of this dress balances its extreme length and shows off my curves. Although you don't necessarily need to opt for a form-fitting option, t's important that you don't lose both height and silhouette in whatever look you choose.
You haven't quite achieved the ultimate level of extra without a dash of fur. I'm serving a whole lot more than a dash right here, but isn't that the theme of the night? A whole lot more. This isn't just faux-fur though, it's ombré. The coat starts out with an off-white color and deepens into a gray, which may not be all-white, but definitely falls in line with the silver sparkle accents. We're often tempted to deviate from the restrictions of the all-white dress code, and one way to do so without a stark contrast like black, is to add a more muted tone like gray. Another great option is to accessorize (think jewelry, not shoes), with jewel tones.
What's a sparkle-worthy event without sparkle shoes? What's a $1.2 million wedding without #BloodyShoes? I couldn't resist an opportunity to pull these out of my closet, and I couldn't think of a better one. While it's not quite white, silver or sparkly shoes and accessories are the perfect accents for an all-white affair. It's like, a cheatcode!
