As we continue to think about ‘tradition’ here on the site, with wedding and Christmas season officially beginning next month, superstar Solange is breaking the rules with both to arrive at her wedding in style – not in a grand procession of limos and typical wedding carriages, but on bike.
Yes, for Solange’s marriage yesterday to Alan Ferguson, the stylish sister of Beyonce chose a pair of white vintage push bikes as a means to make her way to the alter, with both husband and wife dressed to the nines and leading a party of taxis to the New Orleans Marigny Opera House they wed in.
While the mode of transport may have been low-key, Solange made sure her ensemble was not, stepping out in a cream jumpsuit and floor skimming cape for the bike ride, but having a lavish white gown by Humberto Leon for Kenzo, plus heels and her signature fro.
The fashion killer told Vogue of the entire affair;
“Everyone I worked with on the wedding are friends who I love. Everything was a labor of love.”
This alternative wedding shot, by photographer Rog Walker also screams the singer’s style, with her wedding entourage posing for this serious photo, inspired by the work of contemporary Italian artist Vanessa Beecroft, which blew the internet apart last night.
We at SPICE have to give it to Solange Ferguson, as she’s now known – because from breaking style rules on the red carpet to setting new ones on her wedding day, the girl’s wardrobe just doesn’t disappoint.
