Nicki Minaj Just Proved You Can Wear THIS to a Wedding
Dressing for a wedding is no easy task. Obviously you want to look good, but at the same time you don’t want to look too good. It is the bride and groom’s (or brides’ / grooms’) day to shine after all. So to help narrow down the options a few unofficial rules have been established: no white, nothing too flashy and no red. But in classic Nicki Minaj fashion, she completely ignored that last one at her brother’s wedding this weekend and proved the “rule” was red-y to be broken.
Nicki Instagrammed a slew of photos of her at the family affair yesterday. She captioned the beautiful one above, “Love this stunning dress by Alexander McQueen. Tonight was perfect. Bride looked stunning. Thank you @rushkabergman & @officialsheiks for making her look like royalty.” Yes, Nicki’s red dress catches your attention and is low-cut but the superstar still looks super classy in the long-sleeved number.
CEO of wedding PR firm Be Inspired PR, Leila Lewis sounds off on wedding etiquette: “In this day and age, brides are all about their wedding guests showing personality with their fashion,” she shares with us. “Often times now that means color — even red! Some brides have even gone so far as to give their guests special instructions, such as wearing all white or dressing in a specific theme.”
If you didn’t get a go-to color palette from your bride and you’re not sure whether or not a red ensemble will fly at that wedding you’re attending in a few weeks, try to scope out the vibe of the wedding before you commit. If the color scheme and bridesmaids’ dresses both include pastel shades, chances are you could stand out with a sexy red. If the couple and the wedding are more traditional, you might want to reconsider white or red. And it never hurts to ask!
In case you forgot, Nicki is (well, possibly) a soon-to-be-bride herself so if this is any indication of all the traditional rules that will be tossed out the window if and when she and Meek Mill get hitched, we can’t wait to see what that will look like.
