Serena Williams’ Celebrity Wedding Guests Were Dressed To Kill

When Anna Wintour is in the house and the bride has two custom-made designer gowns on rotation, it’s time to step up your wedding guest game. Luckily, the celebrity crowd at Serena Williams and Alexis Ohanian’s New Orleans ceremony didn’t disappoint.

Williams herself said her vows in a strapless princess gown with a matching cape by Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen, then changed into a feathered cocktail dress from Versace for her wedding reception. Her bridesmaids, including her big sister and doubles partner Venus Williams, wore custom metallic gowns by Galia Lahav.

And those guests? Looks were served by Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, Lala Anthony, Ciara, Cynthia Erivo, and more. Kim Kardashian West went the little black dress route with a simple Alex Perry “Leah” maxi. And Eva Longoria turned heads in a sheer, embellished navy gown.

As for everyone else? They scrubbed up pretty nicely, breaking out the sequins and stoles. Hey, you never know when you’re going to end up in a Vogue fashion spread… or even in the background of a Beyoncé selfie. Make it count.


Queen Bey took the plunge in a sleek peacock green Alexandra Vauthier number. This is what “Feelin’ Myself” was about.

Tina Knowles Lawson

Come through, Miss Tina! Though Beyoncé and Solange’s mother is a designer in her own right, she called on MNM Couture for this special occasion. We’re loving the draped neckline and statement shoulder of this pretty-in-pink dress.

Kelly Rowland

Charlie’s Angels reboot, anyone? The former Destiny’s Child singer joined pals La La Anthony and Ciara for a photo opp and a chance to show off her fuchsia and aubergine ombre gown from Pamela Rolland’s spring/summer 2018 collection.

The singer stunned in a custom-made black halter-neck princess ball gown from designer Michael Costello, who has famously dressed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, and, yes, Beyoncé. Costello also designed the bridesmaid dresses for Ciara’s own 2016 wedding.

The lady is a vamp! The TV personality chose a sexy burgundy Vera Wang design with sheared (and sheer) lace details.

Nicole Ari Parker & Boris Kodjoe

One of Hollywood’s best-looking couples channeled Old Hollywood in a classic tux and a 1930s-style lilac lace gown from Valdrin Sahiti with a matching TSARINA by Ollia fur stole. Perfection.
