The Bride Wore Black: How Cheryl Blazed in Black Wedding Dress
Cheryl Fernandez-Versini really knows how to surprise the media. The Girls Aloud popstrel threw a wedding bash in London to celebrate her wedding to Jean-Bernard-Fernandez-Versini in the Maldives. And the bride wore BLACK!
The dress was designed by Ralph & Russo’s creative director Tamara Russos. It features a black silk and velvet strapless gown and a chiffon pleated skirt. A black python clutch, strappy sandals, slicked back hair, and red lipstick completed a totally feminine look with a touch of vampishness. Black became her. JB looked suave in a black suit, shirt and shiny loafers.
Chezza and JB’s guest list consisted of a select few high profile crowd including family and friends. The theme was monochrome.
Present at the party were Cheryl’s girl band mates Kimberly Walsh and Nicola Roberts. Nicola wore a stylish black-and-white mermaid dress with button detail while Kimberly wore a black jumpsuit which set off her cute baby bump.
Also present were Cheryl’s mum Joan Callaghan, her brother Gary, her PA Lily England, Rochelle and Marvin Humes, JB’s best friend Benjamin Bran.
Ralph & Russo connection
The label is only two weeks into the season after bits debut in the Paris Fashion Week and is already making waves. Known for presenting a femme fatale, vampish look for its designs, Ralph & Russo is a favourite among the likes of Angelina Jolie, Suki Waterhouse and Arizona Muse. The label is the only British one to be allowed to participate in the Paris Couture Fashion Week in over a 100 years.
It seems the Geordie girl had expressed her desire for the dress in January when it hit the catwalks at the Paris show, but it was not available then. Chezza copied the style of the ramp along with the hairstyle and waited till the dress was available.
And we thank you Chezza for your choice – you have introduced a new trend in wedding gown chic by your stunning, unconventional choice of black. We agree – “Black” is also a color!
