When you think of Virgil Abloh, you probably think of Off-White, Louis Vuitton, and his hoard of famous friends. But now that we know he designed Hailey Baldwin’s wedding dress, all we can think about is bridal fashion—and how we want him to design our dress, too!
A week after tying the knot to Justin Bieber in South Carolina, Baldwin shared a series of intimate black and white shots featuring her new husband and her gorgeous custom dress. The model enlisted Abloh and the Off-White team to create a romantic, sexy gown featuring an off-the-shoulder neckline, long sleeves, corset bodice and lace and pearl embellishments. “@virgilabloh thank you for making my vision come to life and creating my dream dress. You and your @off____white team are incredible and I’m forever grateful I got to wear your beautiful creation.
❤️,” she captioned the post.
Abloh’s design also featured a low back, which Baldwin showed off in another Instagram post. She captioned the sultry picture with Justin Bieber, “9.30.19 ❤️.”
The final creation is even more stunning than Abloh’s original sketch predicted, which showed off the extreme detail of the design.

Abloh also designed the bride’s custom lace trimmed tulle veil, which she also revealed on Instagram. Embroidered with “Till Death Do Us Part” at the end of the dramatic train, the personalized veil made for one epic photo.
While Abloh is no stranger to the fashion industry, this look marks his first big move into bridal fashion. Baldwin was his first high-profile bride and after seeing this gown, we can only hope more brides follow suit. Better yet, maybe we will see the designer make his Bridal Fashion Week debut in 2021!
