While Sophia Amoruso’s traditional Alexander McQueen wedding dress definitely surprised us, her bridesmaids’ totally badass dress style did not: Her four best girls rocked cape-like dresses that were custom made by the Nasty Gal design + production teams. There *had* to be something slightly non-traditional about this edgy lady’s wedding and these dresses were it.
The floor length bridesmaid dresses were a beautiful oxblood color and looked really gorgeous in her wedding photos, which were posted in Martha Stewart Weddings. The cape-like feature on each dress appeared to begin at the nape of the neck and loosely fell down each bridesmaid’s back all the way to the floor, which created a truly unique silhouette. Can you imagine the capes on these dresses blowing in the wind?! Amazing. They were truly elegant and something we’ve never seen before in a wedding look. The groomsmen (and lady!) stuck to classic-looking tuxedos which paired nicely with Sophia’s traditional bridal look.
It’s important to note that these ladies were most definitely NOT wearing ridiculous Superman-like capes. These capes were a real bridal-meets-badass style moment and proved that you don’t have to stick to what you “think” is appropriate for bridal. The dresses couldn’t have been envisioned by anyone other than (the now) *Mrs.* Nasty Gal herself: Her unique design aesthetic really shows in how different but cohesive her entire bridal party looks and we love it.
