Hailey Baldwin reveals her Virgil Abloh/Off-White wedding gown: lovely or meh?

For months, we heard about Hailey Baldwin and Justin Bieber’s “real” wedding and how they were planning some big thing. They were legally married last year, and that seemed like it was “good enough” for both of them, but I guess they felt like they needed to host some kind of bigger shindig. So they planned something which actually seemed sort of chill and relaxed – everybody flew to South Carolina and stayed at this fancy resort-hotel and there was no big drama. That was two weekends ago and we still hadn’t seen Hailey’s wedding gown. Now she’s revealing all on social media.

Hailey’s wedding gown was Virgil Abloh for Off-White. Love that she chose Abloh – he’s one of those designers beloved by the garbage youths AND the fashionistas. It was off-the-shoulder, with sleeves and a train. It looks like the bodice was lined but then the lining stopped at the skirt. Her veil was long too, just sheer with a lace embroidery around the edge, but then this was stitched into the back: “Til’ Death Do Us Part.” What are your thoughts? Honestly, I was expecting MUCH worse. I was expecting an ‘80s style mullet dress for some reason. While I think some brides can go overboard with the lace, this is fine. And she obviously loved her dress so much, and that’s what makes it special.

She also included some close-ups of some kissing, and the rings. Hailey’s engagement ring is the giant oval-cut diamond, and she’s wearing two bands/rings from Tiffany’s. One is the Tiffany Soleste diamond-encrusted band, then the Soleste diamond V-ring.

    I thought She looked stunning!

    • Diana says:

      Co sign. The best she has ever looked!!!

    • Erinn says:

      I kind of love it, too. It’s not my taste in a wedding dress – but you can tell it’s what she had wanted it to be, and she looks great. She’s got a great figure, and I like that she kept her styling pretty minimal. It let the dress shine.

      • Arizona says:

        I think it’s beautiful and she looks great. The only thing I don’t like is when she’s not wearing the veil, the dress has that strap across the back to keep the sleeves/dress up.

        I think the veil is very pretty – up until the Til Death Do Us Part stitching.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        Erinn, you said it so perfectly that I’ve got nothing to add. Cosign 100%.

    • Moneypenny says:

      I agree–she looks gorgeous. Not my style, but it fits her beautifully and I love it with the veil (though the veil’s “Til Death Do Us Part” is too much)

    • Abby says:

      Agreed. This dress is beautiful and so is she. And I actually love her engagement.wedding band too. I am really surprised!

    • Christo says:

      The dress is nice, but this Baldwin is a non-talent. I hear she loves Jesus though. Yay?

  2. Marie says:

    I like it? Maybe my expectations were low but she looks beautiful. It’s the kind of dress that won’t make you cringe when you look back at it 20 years from now.

  3. manda says:

    I guess those are tattoos on her hands, or did she get hennaed?

  4. Michael says:

    What a life when you not only know Virgil Abloh but you can get him to personally design your wedding dress. If course he is mostly known for being very close to the Hadid sisters and Kendall Jenner so now he is obligated to also design their dresses too.

  5. Mar says:

    That gown is incredible I would totally wear that!

  6. Becks1 says:

    I was prepared to hate it, but I really love it. I think its gorgeous.

  7. Busyann says:

    Im much more traditional, so this isnt normally my thing, but I think it really worked and she looks lovely. Even Justin looked nice. Gah, I like these two and are rooting for them.

  8. Trashaddict says:

    Must be my age or my outlier status. Frederick’s of Hollywood meets 1950s.

    • aang says:

      Yes!! I came here to say this. It looks like a Playboy wedding dress.

    • Lulu2 says:

      Guess I’m an old outlier as well. It just reminds me of a super trashy 80s rock-era music video. November Rain-ish…
      I remember looking through Brides circa 1989 and seeing similar styles.

      • Blueskies says:

        Yes! My comment was going to be along these lines, it struck me as very rock and roll. You’ve got it perfectly as 80s era, though, haha. I actually kind of like it for that reason and Hailey is able to pull it off, but it only works in this narrow instance.

      • Gail says:

        It reminds me of Heather Locklear marrying Tommy Lee.

      • @Backstage Bitchy says:

        yessss! The overly lacy November Rain mullet dress on Stephanie Seymour! Teenage me felt all kinds of things over that music video….

    • jenner says:

      Yes, this. It also makes her look twice her age.

    • jenner says:

      Yes, this. It also makes her look twice her age.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      The top is just too bustier- like. Maybe without the visible boning and sleeve to the knuckles?

    • lisa says:

      Totally agree. I wouldn’t call this “off the shoulder” – the odd sleeves are way lower than that so it’s out of proportion and they just look like hand-less long gloves. And why would she want to cover her hands that way … the ring picture looks weird.

  9. smee says:

    You know those Halloween costumes that are called “Sexy (fill in the blank)”? This looks like the wedding dress called version “Sexy Bride”

  10. Maria says:

    For a wedding dress of a starter marriage it’s lovely.

  11. TeddyPicker says:

    Slight on the wrong side of tacky – the bustier area is overdone for me and too tight.

    I love the ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ train though!

  12. ChillyWilly says:

    I really like the dress but not that “till death do us part ” mess on the veil. It’s fug and probably not accurate.

    • lisa says:

      …and why is it in quotes? Why not just use the phrase itself….are they quoting someone else’s dress?

    • DM2 says:

      It just doesn’t look right – it cheapens the whole look with the banner-like quote. Too big a font, perhaps??

  13. Brunswickstoval says:

    I think the dress is awful and the embroidery even worse. The close ups on her hands make the detailing look cheap. Definitely not a win for me.

    Did they intentionally misspell ‘til? I realise it can be spelt “till” but not usually with the apostrophe.

    • Porter says:

      I think it’s quotation marks? It looks like close quotes at the end. Not sure why quotation marks were necessary, but 🤷🏻‍♀️?

      • olive says:

        quotation marks around words are virgil’s trademark. most off white pieces will say “HOODIE” or whatever item of clothing it is on the piece.

    • Bookworm says:

      It’s short for “until” so till would be wrong, I think.

      • Lou says:

        @Bookworm – actually till is a completely grammatically acceptable alternative to until. Look up ‘til vs till.

  14. Originaltessa says:

    I’d like to see it in color. Everything looks better in black and white. But the silhouette is lovely.

  15. Ladygyms says:

    Definitely no till death do us apart here folks here let’s forget that. And the dress just reminds me of her personality try hard and love me please. No reason for anyone to do that she has friends and family for that.

    • Maria says:

      Daddy Z-List Stephen Baldwin is out of cash so Hailey needs to lock down Bieber as much as she can.

  16. Alex Jones says:

    When scrolling through the photos I accidentally read the veil as, “Till Death Do Us Part?” My brain just added a “?”. I guess my subconscious has her doubts.

    She does look lovely. I just wish the dress didn’t flare out so much at the bottom.

    • Trashaddict says:

      She is definitely beautiful and in a slightly nontraditional way. She could have showed herself off better in another style.

  17. Rose says:

    Is she wearing anniversary bands on her right ring finger?

  18. Vava says:

    I hate it. The dress looks trashy.

  19. skeptical says:

    Mazeltov! All the best to them both.

  20. Lenn says:

    She is going to regret that veil.

  21. olive says:

    i don’t see “WEDDING GOWN” in big font stamped on it, how are we supposed to know it’s an off white creation?

  22. Leah says:

    I CANNOT with the misspelling on the train of her gown.

    • Veronica S. says:

      Yeah, I was like….when the hell did we start using the word for glacial sediment for the shorthand of until?

      Edit: APPARENTLY DICTIONARY.COM IS TELLING ME ‘TILL’ IS THE EARLY MODERN ENGLISH “CORRECT” VERSION. It’s apparently a separate word from “until,” with the contracted ’til becoming a modernized replacement.

      Whether you believe the person sewing it knew that is a completely different situation lol.

      • Lou says:

        This has been driving me nuts lol. I keep seeing people comment that her veil is misspelt but till is the more correct form of the word!

      • Veronica S. says:

        I feel like everything I’ve known in my life is a lie lol.

      • DM2 says:

        I thought maybe they would be going out afterwards and plouging death into a field somewhere.

  23. Savannah says:

    He really GRABS on to her doesn’t he..?

  24. Lucy says:

    Out of all the people from the Bieber Squad, Karla Welch (the stylist) is probably the one I like the most. I don’t really care for whatever she puts together for him, but I love everything else. She’s also very involved in politics and social issues, which is cool.

  25. S808 says:

    LOVE the dress but I hate that ‘TILL DEATH DO US PART’ is stitched on the veil so big. I would’ve argued to have it much smaller and better blended into the veil.

  26. Veronica S. says:

    I could deal with the lace, but I feel like the intentional seam lines ruin the flow of it for me. Gives it a lingerie feel and not in a classy way. And the veil is Too Much. If you’re using that much lace on the gown, I feel like a shorter veil is in order or it’s just an overwhelming amount of lace and tulle to look at. I mean, it’s not TERRIBLE, but it kind of falls in line with a lot of her dress where you can see where she spends enough time around fashion to recognize it but doesn’t really isn’t internally stylish enough to really nail the final look.

  27. Kateeeee says:

    The most credit I can give her is this dress is not nearly methed up enough to belong to a person who thinks it’s a good idea to marry Justin Bieber. This dress was probably the best choice she made that day??

  28. N says:

    It really does look like an ad for Frederick’s of Hollywood. My favorite part is the quote. At least she loves it.
    We got married last September. Just the 2 of us. In March we had to make our families happy and had a small outdoor ceremony in a backyard on the water. It was like the poor version of this wedding/party/whatever. Our sunset was better and damn they had to be hot.
    They tout their faith so much that I do believe these kids really wanted a big thing with their religious crowd. Makes no sense since they got married to have sex, but ok. That detail they will always bury of course.
    I just want to know how to ever function with such long nails and that massive rock. They must have all those wash basins that stand instead of being concave.

  29. Ash says:

    I think Hailey is stunning and the dress looked fabulous on her. For some reason I find her and Justin really cute as a couple and I find myself rooting for them.

  30. RoyalBlue says:

    Those two kids clean up pretty well. Bieber looks like a completely different person when he gets a haircut and gels his hair.

    From the front I love their look. I can’t stand the dress from the back.

  31. TyrantDestroyed says:

    It looks great on her although is not my style, it is very 80’s sort of Madonna’s Like a Virgin video.
    The veil is nice but the message on it is super cringey since I don’t think it will be q happy ever after marriage but who knows?

  32. Tw says:

    The only thing I want to know about this wedding is if Wilson Phillips performed a la Bridesmaids. Then I would be impressed.

  33. Boudica says:

    I think this dress is rather trashy, and I don’t understand the whole thing at all since they already got married a year ago so what is this all about? It’s nothing more than a fancy dress party, IMO.

  34. TheOtherSam says:

    Her right hand ring looks like the Tiffany Victoria Alternating ring, not the Soleste which is much more delicate with smaller stones.

  35. ChicagoAudrey says:

    Her hands look 20 years older than they should.
