The exact slip will be available to buy from July

In true lavish style, Brooklyn Beckham and billionare heiress Nicola Pelzt tied the knot on Saturday in what has been dubbed the “wedding of the year.” And besides the exchanging of vows, the attendees’ fashion choices were hot talking points.

Held at the Pelz’s sprawling Palm Beach family home, everyone from Victoria Beckham’s former Spice Girls bandmates Mel B and Mel C, to Eva Longeria and tennis pro sisters Venus and Serena Williams were among the star-studded crowd.

And while the bride wore Valentino couture and the groom wore Dior, naturally, Victoria Beckham dominated the sartorial proceedings.

Never one to shy away from a statement look, the mother of the groom donned a custom-made new style of her eponymous fashion label’s classic slip dresses.

The couture dress’s finish is slinky and metallic, with a liquid-like look to it that according to Vogue, is said to have been inspired by the reflection of the moon on water at night. Nodding to both the disco ball of Studio 54 and the sophisticated feel of 1940s Hollywood glamour, the influences blend to create a distinctly Victoria Beckham dress.

Taking to Instagram to explain her dress choice, Beckham said: “A special dress for a special day. The first Victoria couture dress made in our London atelier. The bespoke fabric was developed by one of my favourite mills in Italy, it’s like liquid metal and hangs so beautifully.”

The head-turning piece is from her own pre-fall 22 line, meaning it won’t be available to buy until July. In the meantime, if you’re inspired by the queen of sleek, these are the alternative slinky slips to shop now.
