Solange's nontraditional wedding attire — that white jumpsuit! that cape! — is probably already setting nuptial trends (and her guests' outfits might finally shatter that "don't wear white to weddings" rule). She biked to the wedding in the jumpsuit-cape combo, designed by Stephane Rolland, but once inside, changed into a floor-sweeping, also-caped gown by Kenzo. Earlier today, we caught up with one-half of the label, Humberto Leon, at the Opening Ceremony launch for the MICA wearable device the company designed with Intel. Leon was tight-lipped on the topic, though rumor has it he'd been back and forth to New Orleans arranging fittings. However, he did say, "We’re [he and co-designer Carol Lim] really good friends with her and it was really exciting for her friends to work on her wedding with her. It was a fun thing to do!”
