Beyoncé Wore a $140,000 Wedding Dress in Her New Music Video
The long-sleeved Stephane Rolland gown featured in Bey and Jay-Z's "Apeshi*t" video is incredible.
Beyoncé's official wedding dress was a strapless gown designed by her mother, Tina Knowles. That's far from the only bridal design she's worn, however. The star often wears wedding dresses on the red carpet and the stage, so it's no surprise that she put one on to promote her latest album with husband Jay-Z, Everything Is Love.
In the music video for the song "Apesh*t" (which the couple shot at The Louvre in Paris, France), Beyoncé's seen wearing a dramatic white gown in a number of scenes. According to Page Six, the piece is a wedding dress by French designer Stephane Rolland. The garment-with its long sleeves, A-line skirt, and voluminous asymmetrical ruffles-costs around $140,000!
The dress itself looks like a piece of art, which is why it makes perfect sense that it was chosen to resemble one. Page Six explains that Beyoncé wore the outfit to nod to "The Winged Victory of Samothrace," the Louvre's marble sculpture of the Greek goddess Nike, which appears behind the couple in the music video.
This isn't Beyoncé's only recent bridal look. While on her and Jay-Z's On the Run II tour, the couple shared a video of themselves renewing their vows. For that occasion, the celebrity put on an intricate, off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav gown, which cost over $10,000. The design of that dress was inspired by another major female figure: Queen Victoria. The event was a family affair, with the couple's three children (six-year-old Blue Ivy and one-year-old twins Rumi and Sir) in tow.
