Asking Kim Jones to dress him for his wedding was a no-brainer for Pusha T.
The rapper, real name Terrence Thornton, wed his long-time partner Virginia Williams in an opulent ceremony on Saturday (21Jul18), surrounded by their famous friends including Kim Kardashian, Kanye West, and Pharrell Williams, who acted as best man.
While Virginia wowed in a bridal gown by Marchesa, the label co-helmed by disgraced movie executive Harvey Weinstein’s estranged wife Georgina Chapman, Pusha also upped the style stakes in a white Dior dinner jacket and black tuxedo pants designed by Kim.
“Pusha reached out to me about his wedding suit in such a nice way that it was a pleasure for me to make it for him,” Kim smiled to Vogue. “He knew exactly what he was looking for.”
“I’ve been a fan of Dior for a while now,” Pusha added. “And with Kim recently appointed as artistic director, it was a no-brainer! I wanted to keep it classic, but play on the time and location of the wedding so I paired my black tuxedo pants with an off-white jacket.”
Kim joined Dior Homme in March, after more than six years as the style director of Louis Vuitton’s ready-to-wear menswear collections.
The English designer also outfitted Pusha’s groomsmen, while the bridesmaids wore white dresses by Katie May collection. And on Sunday the Daytona rapper thanked him on his Instagram writing: “You’ve been so helpful, hands-on, and accommodating…thank you @mrkimjones for taking care of me and team.”
After the ceremony, held at The Cavalier Hotel in the couple’s hometown of Virginia Beach, Virginia changed out of her dreamy floral embroidered Marchesa dress into a minimalistic strapless Reem Acra gown.
“One is me coming out my box and the other says ‘Virginia,’” she told Brides magazine of her two dresses.
Uploading a picture of the happy couple on Instagram, a delighted Pharrell wrote: “Congrats you guys, God is the greatest, NOW MAKE THAT BABY!”
