Chicago-based designer Azeeza Khan helped style the wedding looks.
WHAT MRS. BENNETT WORE: For her star-studded Newport Beach wedding this past weekend to longtime beau Chance The Rapper, bride Kirsten Corley chose the gorgeous “Alma” gown by designer Galia Lahav. The groom looked very dapper in a white tuxedo jacket, black trousers and black bow tie.
It’s “a piece she fell in love with last fall,” said Chicago-based designer Azeeza Khan, who assisted the bride style her wedding look and also designed Corley’s shower and engagement dresses.
“The overall look is very majestic, but what’s non-conventional about it is that it’s a two-piece separate with a beaded lace corset bodysuit tucked into an extremely dramatic, classic ball skirt in organza with French lace abstract appliqués. It does read as a one piece.”
Corley’s chic wedding dress is much like her style, Khan said, saying she’s “classic and elegant,” with a fresh, youthful element. Case in point: the bride sported a pair of flat midnight blue velvet Jimmy Choos on her big day. “She’s super tall so she has the luxury of being able to pull off a flat shoe for the wedding,” Khan said.
The two met and became friends after planning a play date via Instagram since their daughters are close in age. “Beyond just being Chicago moms, we of course connected on my collections. So being able to understand her style, what fit she preferred, etc. was nice and I was able to make personal recommendations that she trusted. She has a strong sense of self and confidence with a good understanding of what works for her,” Khan said.
