M.I.A.'s Wedding Style: 'I've Always Wanted to Get Married in a White Suit'
We wouldn’t expect a traditional wedding gown from “Born Free” rapper M.I.A, simply based on her history of envelope-pushing style. But the 34-year-old bride-to-be doesn’t see herself wearing a dress at all when she finally heads down the aisle with fiance Benjamin Bronfman. “I’ve always wanted to get married in a white suit,” says the songstress (nee Mathangi Arulpragasam) in the July issue of GQ. And where did the London-born Sri Lankan star get her wedding fashion inspiration? “I used to work at a Kodak lab in England, cutting photos after they’d come out of the wash,” recalls the mom of 16-month-old Ikhyd. “And in one I saw this couple getting married on a beach in white suits, and their kid was there.” For more on M.I.A., pick up the July issue of GQ or visit gq.com. –Marissa Patlingrao Cooley
