Yes, You Can Own a Wedding Dress Once Worn by Beyoncé
Face it, Beyoncé-loving brides: You’re probably not going to get the superstar to RSVP to your wedding — but you can walk down the aisle in a gown she once wore.
The opulent Baracci wedding dress Beyoncé donned in her 2011 “Best Thing I Never Had” music video just surfaced on preownedweddingdresses.com this week, for the Hollywood price of $30,000 (a big markdown from the original $85,000 fee).
An off-white sweetheart ball gown with flecks of gold, the hand-draped double silk size 4 creation is embroidered with French lace and covered with hand-sewn Swarovski pendants and crystals. According to the preownedweddingdresses.com blog, Beyoncé “reportedly stumbled on the dress while walking by the designer’s Beverly Hills boutique, and asked to wear it in her video.”
The opulent gown is seemingly a far cry from the simpler white dress Beyoncé wore to her own wedding in 2008, a look she shared a peek of in her 2011 “I Was Here” video (the girl certainly had a thing for bridal wear that year, eh?).
No word on who’s selling the gown — a friend, the designer or Beyoncé herself — but we imagine it smells just like the sexy singer. Tell us: Would you buy a wedding gown once worn by a star? How much would you pay for it?
