Against tradition, Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (formerly known as Cheryl Cole) made the radical choice of attending her wedding in a black gown by British couturiers Ralph & Russo. Cheryl and hubby Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini enjoyed their wedding celebration with family and friends at private members’ club The Library.
“The play on fabrics and simple silhouette is what really makes this gown so striking,” Ralph & Russo designer Tamara Ralph told UK Vogue. “The sumptuous, rich velvet and duchesse silk bodice contrasted with a delicate, sheer silk-chiffon skirt brought an element of fun to the overall look whilst still being romantic. Cheryl’s choice of black for a wedding celebration was so unexpected but I love the fact that she surprised everyone.”
The musical artist and two-time Vogue cover girl wore the dress in the manner it was styled at the London Ralph & Russo show that she attended in January.
