2018 was a huge year for Beyonce – she dropped a surprise new album with husband Jay-Z, went on a worldwide tour, gave birth to twins Rumi and Sir Carter and renewed her wedding vows.
In true Bey style, she kept the latter on the down-low at the time. Fans discovered that she and Jay had said their vows again when a picture was shown on a video montage played during the song “Forever Young” on the couple’s 2018’s On The Run II tour.
The clip didn’t really reveal many details about the dress, though – which, let’s be honest, is what Twitter is really interested in. However, patience is a virtue when it comes to Queen Bey, and she has finally shared a full-length glimpse of the gown in a round-up of her best moments of 2018:
Enjoy this picture from the gown’s designer Galia Lahav, who kindly Instagrammed the happy couple with the caption: ‘The Queen B herself @beyonce wore the Thelma Gown for her and husband, Jay-Z’s vow renewal back in June, but this is the first official image to surface from that remarkable day – and we’re in love all over again!’
Fans had actually speculated a while back that Bey had chosen the Thelma gown for the renewal, but neither she nor the designer had confirmed it until now.
The dress is said to be inspired by Queen Victoria’s wedding dress (although a lot more slinky, we’d imagine) and features sheer sleeves, an off-shoulder design and Swarovski and pearl-embellished bodice.
There’s no price availability, but you can bet it cost more than your average white dress.
